When you’re planning a party – whether it’s a child-friendly affair, a birthday bash or something a little fancier – choosing finger food is often at the top of the list of things to do. You’ve got your decorations sorted, your invitations sent out, an outfit selected, a perfectly curated playlist lined up, drinks on ice, and then comes time to serve up some delicious provisions … so what’ll it be?
While choosing your party-perfect finger foods, it’s a good idea to think about whether guests have any special dietary requirements or allergies, whether there are any children attending, and whether or not you can prepare your dishes in advance (to avoid spending the entire event in the kitchen!). You can choose to have a single theme for your recipes, or provide a wide variety of foods that you think will become firm favourites by the end of the occasion.
As long as the dishes are presentable, tasty and easy to eat while people walk around and mingle, you’re on the right track. It’s also a good idea to put some serviettes and small plates out, and toothpicks or forks where necessary. You might like to stagger serving the food throughout your event too, so that your delicious dishes remain fresh and topped up.
Not sure what to serve up? Never fear, we’ve got you sorted. This collection of easy and delicious recipes has been created using Foodbank Shop & Share 2017 products, which means an ingredient from each of these recipes will be donated to an Australian in need when you purchase them during July from Woolworths – even more reason to give these morsels a place at your finger food table.
This collection of recipes features Shop & Share FoodBank donation-triggering products from Helga’s, Primo, Chicken Tonight, McCain, SPC, Sanitarium and Devondale.
And, before you get planning, watch this handy video on making a Hot Cheesy Corn Dip from McCain for your next gathering.
