Some good foods for parties include grilled skewers, cheese appetizers and prepared nuts. These dishes are ideal for a party because they are not only delicious, but they are also easy to prepare, transport and snack on.
Made of chopped chunks of food grilled on a thin wooden stick, skewers can be prepared using any variety of ingredients. Meat or vegetables are frequently used, but seafood, cheese or other foods may also be added. Beef skewers with tomatoes and onions are a classic combination. Skewers can easily be made vegetarian with fresh ingredients such as zucchini, squash, peppers, onions and tomatoes.
Another popular party food is a simple mixed cheese plate with crackers. Basic cheese plates can be upgraded by adding a baked element. Cheese sticks or cheese straws are delicious appetizers that can be served with sour cream, barbecue sauce, mustard or other dipping sauces. Parmesan cheese puffs are another tasty baked appetizer.
Nuts are a great party food as they give guests something both sweet and salty to snack on. Cinnamon-baked, sugared or chocolate-covered almonds are some ideas for sweet nuts. Sugar-glazed pecans or walnuts are another tasty sweet nut option. Savory nut varieties include peppered pecans and spicy peanuts.
