…Because we want to be invited!
Just kidding – that’s not actually why we’re crafting this post (although if you do want to invite us, we can be there in a few minutes.) Really, why we’re writing today is to give you some good, frugal ideas for what to serve at your holiday parties.
Party food is pretty much our favorite category of things to cook, and sometimes the most simple recipes get the highest praise from your friends and family. While none of the recipes below are brand new, we think you can’t go wrong to throw in a few of these at your next holiday party.
Recipe: Parmesan Thyme Crackers
Because of extreme white-ness of this dish, a smattering of green and red garnishes would look great: maybe green and red bell peppers?
For the next idea, you’ll have to tweak it a little bit: These roasted pears with goat cheese and bacon are a little bit too big to be manageable finger foods, but if you used a smaller pear, like a seckel pear, it could be just right on a toothpick.
This is one of our oldest recipes, so the photography is not quite as great, but the food is wonderful.
Some people are noble and they really try not to put on a ton of weight during the holidays. These people might have a hard time at one of our parties, until they turn the corner and find these delicious morsels:
Recipe: Shrimp and Cucumber Bites
Then, there are those that just count the holidays as a loss (and by that, we mean a GAIN, of course) and eat whatever they want to. If that’s your decision, is there anything better than flaky, buttery pastry with prosciutto, dijon mustard, and gruyere cheese?
Though we have many more ideas for what you should serve at your upcoming party, this next one will be our last for the day. It’s simple, delicious, and frugal, but very elegant.
Recipe: Smoked Salmon Toasts
Have fun with your party! Let us know how it goes!
