Fun Party Food
Looking for some ideas of fun food to make for a party? Try some of these:
Bacon Wrapped Shrimp and Pineapple
– bacon strips
– pineapple chunks
– peeled and de-veined shrimp
Directions: Cut bacon strips in half. Wrap one piece of bacon around a pineapple chunk and one shrimp. Secure it with a toothpick. Repeat this process with all shrimp and pineapple. Bake on a cookie sheet on 425 degrees until bacon is crisp.
Fiery Cheese Dip
– 1-lb block of Velveeta cheese
– 2 cans of Rotel tomatoes with lime and cilantro
– 1 small jar jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
Directions: Cut cheese into ½” chunks and place in a large microwavable bowl. Add Rotel and peppers. Microwave on low setting until cheese is melted, stirring frequently.
Miniature Pepperoni Pizzas
– Ritz crackers
– 1 jar pizza sauce
– Pepperoni slices
– shredded cheese (or sliced cheese, cut into quarters)
Lightly spray a cookie sheet with non-stick butter-flavored oven spray. On a Ritz cracker, layer pizza sauce, cheese and a pepperoni slice. Repeat this process to make as many “mini” pizzas as you’d like, lining them on the cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until cheese begins to melt.
Mini Chicken Salad Sammies
– 1-lb chicken, cooked and shredded
– 1 small apple, cored and peeled
– 1 celery stalk
– green onions
– sandwich bread
– salt and pepper to taste
– lettuce (optional)
– tomato (optional)
Combine shredded chicken, apple, celery, onions, mayonnaise and mustard. (Quick tip: If you have a large food processor, chop your cooked chicken first, then add the remaining dry ingredients for quick and easy combining.) Add seasoning to taste. Spread chicken salad on bread slices. Top with lettuce and tomato, if desired. Quarter each sandwich. These stack up high and go a long way!
I hope you have found at least one recipe for fun food to make for a party. Children aren’t the only ones to have fun party foods – you can serve these at your own events and see your guests enjoy every mouthful.
