Suggestions for (easy) party food shaped like balls?
We're having a "ball" themed party for my kid's first birthday. It's an evening party, so the meal needs to be dinner/supper. I am hoping to make as much as possible ahead of time (the day before, preferably). And I'm trying to make everything shaped like balls. lol
So far, I am thinking:
- Caprese skewers
- Meatballs (Italian, Cocktail, and Vegetarian, plus hoagie rolls and shredded cheese for those who want to make them a sandwich)
- Cheese poof balls (they're like those cheese curls but round like balls)
- Mixed fruit salad of grapes, blueberries and melon balls (not sure about this, I hate balling melons)
- Cake (with a ball theme)
I think I need one or two more things to make the meal part more substantial, though.
What about baby potatoes? I even bought mini baby potatoes last year at Trader Joes- everyone thought they were mushrooms at first.
From a Trader Joe's holiday flyer years ago : Bocconcini (little mozzarella balls) wrapped in little pieces of their pizza dough, brush with olive oil and bake. Serve with marinara sauce to dip.
