I am helping organize a large party for about 60 people and am looking for some easy to prepare Hors D'oeuvres so I naturally thought of Costco. Has anyone had anything that they really enjoyed? Thanks

  1. I like the mini quiche in phyllo shells, they're in the freezer. The hummus they carry is my favourite.

    1. The Artichoke Dip is great so are frozen mini cheese cakes.
      Cheese/vegetables Trays are good and you can always order some sandwich trays.
      I haven't tried the vegetable spring rolls.
      There is also a couple of frozen mix appetizer trays that are sold there but I haven't had those.

        I really like the gourmet antipasto served in crispy crackers. The antipasto is about 10.00 a bottle but so worth it. If you want a tiny dab of goat cheese on top, even better. mmmmn good!

        1. re: g.m.

          Which gourmet antipasto is this? Never heard of it.

          Any other ideas?

          1. re: Dax

            The post is from January. The antipasto was sold over Thanksgiving and Christmas of 2010, not this year. Some stuff sold this year may already be gone.

              Umm, I realize it is from January of 2011 but had hoped it would be sold again this year since this is almost exactly the same time only a year later. Lots of items are sold year round at Costco and I was just hoping maybe I had missed them.

              1. re: Dax

                Nope, you didn't miss those jars of goodness. They were not sold at Costco this holiday season. I grabbed three extra two packs just before Christmas last year when I saw the shelf label with the * in the corner; they were easy gifts for the drop by people.

              2. re: Cathy

                Totally back this season. I saw it just last week in the Chicago area.

                1. re: ferret

                  hmmm, where are they (layout wise) in your area store?

        2. Their turkey roll-ups are quite good.

          1. I just bought a bunch of stuff at Costco for New Years Eve and it was all pretty good.

            Shrimp & Cotija Cheese Egg Rolls -Unique
            Tempura Shrimp-Crisps amazingly in the oven.Tastes fried
            Mini Quiches-Standard but decent
            Potato Skins-Really Cheesy
            Chicken & Pineapple Meatballs-I add Mr Yoshidas sauce into the crockpot with these.
            Tillamook 100 anniversary cheddar sliced on those water crackers with a dab of Red Pepper Jelly on top-My favorite-I could eat Red Pepper Jelly on anything.

            Everything was a hit-We didn't have any leftovers.

            1. I bought pigs in blankets and mini-spanakopita for a recent party, both in the freezer section. The spanakopita were decent (with the added plus that they can be cooked ahead and eaten at room temperature), the pigs in blankets were what you expect. All got eaten.

                Second the mini-spanakopitas- my favorite, and everyone loves the assorted mini-quiches.

                1. re: Berheenia

                  Third! on those spanakopitas. They are so tasty.

                  Before Christmas, my store had some partially-baked cheese poofs in the refrigerated section, like popovers/gougeres. Delicious.

              2. Frozen Meatbals in Crock Pot (Sauce:BBQ sauce and Pineapple Juice)
                Artichoke Dip (serve warm) with Garlic Crostini (in bags)
                Various Cheeses
                Bruschetta with Crostini
                Turkey Roll Ups - in Deli or Platters
                Mozzerella wrapped with Proscuitto
                Mixed Olives
                Chicken Salad - can make mini sandwiches

                  An alternative sauce for the meatballs: a bottle of Heinz 57 and a jar of grape jelly. Trust me.

                2. Oh....

                  The Irish Cheddar is amazing...
                  Frozen Shrimp....just defrost with water...we do this all the time

                  1. They were sampling a whitefish dip before Christmas that was very good.

                      I love that dip.

                    2. Thought I'd respond to this old post as this month's Town and County has an article about creating wonderful hors d'ouervres using Costco ingredients. Event planner David Monn's ideas include: mini lamb chops coated w/ evoo, pistachios, kosher salt + p (broiled); mini corn muffins warmed and topped w/ kirkland pulled pork and jalapeno jelly; and shrimp marinated in lime and cilantro and garnished w/ avacado and carrot zest.

                        Any chance you still have the article with recipes? I can't find it on Monn's website or on T&C's! Thanks in advance.
