Having a 88th BD party for our Mom in a couple weeks.
Having around 40 people.
Anyone have any finger food recipes that are good.


I thought i\I would make some spinach/artichoke dip.
Hopefully some chicken salad to put on dollar rolls.



Thanks in advance...

Do they have to be all homemade?

Jalapeno poppers? that will give mom a pep in her step

BBQ meatballs- frozen Costco Meatball cooked in a crock pot with a cup of OJ and Bulls eye BBQ sauce. I like the Texas flavor myself. Start about 6 hours before event. Stir two or three times while cooking.

You can also use little smokies just heat serve with the BBQ sauce.

Veggie trays are always nice.

Costco muffins cut into quarters sprinkled with powdered sugar.

Are you seeing the theme here.

Deli meats and cheeses are always good for something like that. Have the deli make up the platter, get some rolls and condiments and your done. You could even have a really long sub made up and have half ham and cheese and the other half turkey and cheese ...or what ever combination you like. Good luck and have fun!

You can also use Crescent Rolls to make pinwheels - my kids and their friends LOVE them with cheese, bacon bits and some ranch dsg or veggie cream cheese.

The best appetizers though are 'make aheads' - things that you can make the day before. Some old standbys are Pickle Rollups, Deviled Eggs, small crustless sandwiches, etc. If you're going to have children there, throw together some PB&J and cut them out with different cookie cutters. And never underestimate a bowl of pretzels, plated cheese (Ritz/Chicken in a Biscuit) and crackers, a bowl of grapes, a bowl of Hershey's kisses and of course, cashews - classics are classics for a reason!

Wrap little smokies in them and bake. Serve with various dipping sauces.

Where I come from we do finger foods using a slim baguette, sliced and covered with slices of cold cuts, cheese, cooked shrimps, lox, homemade salads, sliced meatballs, pate, homemade roast-beef or grilled chicken, Philadelphia cheese mixed with chives, brie, feta cheese, mozzarella - endless possibilities.
You can use crackers, but IMHO they break and are messy. A thin slice of baguette works better for me. You can use pumpernickel bread ( round, sliced ). Insert toothpicks for easy lifting.
All nicely decorated with a lettuce, tomato slice, slice of hard boiled eggs, kiwi, cucumber or pickle, avocado, red radish, grapes ... etc.

Looks like lots of work? Not really. First you slice all the bread, put butter or spread on, piece of lettuce, then you start to make one kind at the time ( eg. cover 20 with ham, 20 with turkey, 20 with salami ... when you have all covered, you start to decorate with all already prepared/sliced stuff ). Put on a pretty platters . They all look mouthwatering and very elegant
Its different than that you see in other house events. Very tasty, though.

Here are few pictures with the ideas:

Talking Nice ideas...

Thanks everyone for UR ideas...

Yes... they can be homemade or bought.
Some of us are good cooks & bakers... the rest are great grocery store/deli cooks. I won't be mentioning any names... LOL...

Some good ideas... only problem is we all had 3/4 of the mentioned above at X-mas eve & a X-mas party.

Thought I would make more caramel pecan popcorn. They really enjoyed that this year. It vanished...

Mom doesn't like store bought birthday cakes... she likes oldschool.
I'll be making a rum cake...and a pumpkin roll... 4 layered pie.
Need another cake...ideas ???

Thanks
