Some ideas for hors d'oeurves served on cocktail picks are mini meatballs, cheese ball lollipops rolled in pistachios, and a combination of roast beef, blue cheese and grapes. Other ideas include an antipasti skewer with common Italian appetizer items, or a combination of feta cheese, watermelon and mint.
There are a variety of meatball flavors to use for mini meatballs on a skewer, but for an easy option, use pre-made mini meatballs and pair them with a flavorful sauce. One option is to cook pre-made mini turkey meatballs in a sauce made by combining barbecue sauce and apricot jam. Or create a sesame teriyaki meatball using pre-made mini chicken teriyaki meatballs. Combine the meatballs with a sauce created by thickening a mixture of oyster sauce, water and cornstarch.
For cheese lollipops, place a grape in the center of a ball of blue cheese, and then cover the outside of the cheese with chopped pistachios or toasted sesame seeds. To make the Italian appetizer skewers, put a combination of garlic croutons, mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers, cherry tomatoes and Italian cured meats onto the cocktail pick and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. For the watermelon, feta and mint appetizer, first, marinate thin onion rings in red wine vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. Then, pair the onions with the other ingredients on the cocktail pick.
