One thing’s for sure, your party will be a success if you serve tasty food. Your guests will love food that is creative, nicely presented, colorful and most of all, tasty, and it feels good to welcome people into your home and watch them enjoy the food you served. You can’t go wrong with canapés, so here are some ideas for your next canapé party.
Mini jacket potatoes
If you’re looking for something easy and cheap to fill up your canapé offering, try these tiny jacket potatoes. Leave those big spuds for the main course, and serve these freshly baked mini new potatoes. Top them off with a little sour cream and sprinkle with fresh chives. Of course, don’t forget a pinch of sea salt, or you can even leave a tray with coarse salt for your guests to give potatoes a light dip.
Beef and mozzarella meatballs
This is a canapé that will disappear in seconds and you can even save yourself some time (and nerves) and get some pre-rolled raw meatballs. All you need to do is to stick little balls of mozzarella in your meatballs and your guests are in for a tasty surprise.
Polenta and prosciutto chips
These are almost as easy to prepare and 10 times tastier than your simple potato fries. You can cook some polenta or get a ready-made block that you only need to cut into fry shapes and bake. When done, wrap polenta sticks with some prosciutto and you’re done! Serve with a side of some thick ketchup.
Beetroot blinis with mushrooms
Wait until your friends see these! These bites are as tasty as they look and are practically ready in minutes. Watch out, there’s garlic in them!
Crispy prawns with sweet chili dip
These are so tasty that you simply must have them at your next party. Prawns are coated with coconut and served with a side of spicy chili dip for the brave ones. If you’re not so sure about making such complicated canapés yourself, you can always rely on professional catering services to bring some directly to your doorstep. This way, you’ll have more time to enjoy food with your guests!
Watermelon, ham and feta
These are definitely easy to make, and they will look like million dollars. Just thread some watermelon, cheese, ham and mint onto a skewer and you’re ready to dig in.
Mexican roasted sweet potato bites
Guacamole and salsa are known as party food, but this time they come with a twist. These party bites are 100% vegetarian and gluten-free, so everyone should be able to try them out.
Strawberry cheesecake shots
Now, something sweet! Try serving Greek yogurt, some fresh strawberries and a sweet and crunchy biscuit. They are super healthy and colorful, and they will definitely cheer up your guests.
Caramel cream Nutella lollies
These Nutella lollies are perfect party sweets. They have a soft and creamy texture and that famous Nutella taste we all love. Make sure to make enough because people will ask for seconds!
Mini apple doughnuts
Many people dismiss doughnuts as canapés because they think they’re hard to make. Actually, they only need about 30 minutes to make, and they are small, so you can make almost 30 at a time. Sprinkle with sugar and serve with cream and apple purée, and watch your guests enjoy the burst of sweet apple filling.
Here they are, top 10 party canapés you can serve at your next party. They are bound to be a great success because what’s there not to like! Make sure you present them creatively and your guests will be amazed at your culinary skills.
