Frozen Costco Appetizers?

soshall Jun 18, 2009 12:31 PM

I’m hosting a cocktail party for about 100 people and want to off-set some of the catering charges. I was thinking of picking up some frozen appetizers at Costco and having the wait-staff heat and serve these. Any recommendations to please a crowd?

    I like their frozen cheesecake minis, veggie trays, fruit trays,Kirkland Chips, Squid rings, Pita Bites ( a garlic laced cracker), hummus, and fresh bakery croissants. Lots of good cheese, too. And Dunn's smoked meat in a box, or prosciutto for slicing.You can request some large $40 cheese, veggie, or meat trays, made for you.

      I have served their spanakopitas, petite quiches and Mexican platter (includes empanadas, taquitos and mini tacos) as appetizers on several occasions.

        Might I suggest M & M Meats? They make frozen but fully cooked mini chicken kabobs on skewers that are yummy - I think I served the mediterranean marinated ones. Good value. Their bacon wrapped scallops were also a hit the last time I served them.

          I had some great lobster and shrimp appetizers at Xmas. Really good.

            We've done many a party with appetizers from Costco and gotten raves. If the things are properly heated, no one will know that's where they came from!

              I buy their mini quiche assortment in a pinch.
              They are good.
              Have tried a couple of others, but would not repeat.
