I’m throwing my own birthday party (because I’m tacky like that) and am having drinks and appetizers at my house before we all go out. I think there’ll be like 7 of us? Not sure.
What should I feed everyone?!?!
I was leaning towards cranberry margaritas to drink =]

At the Superbowl party we went to, they made buffalo chicken mini-meatballs and those went really fast. So good. They were just ground chicken mixed with breadcrumbs, frank’s red hot, and chili flakes and she served them with a side of blue cheese for dipping. So yummy.

Oh those sound great! And weirdly delicious I’m sure 🙂

@busterbluth: Must have been a good year for Super Bowl food, because I saw this thread and thought of some delicious chicken cordon bleu bites I had the other night. So good! Chicken breast cut up into cubes, stuffed with a little piece of ham and some cheese and then breaded. Oooh yum!

I love anything cheese so what about individual cheese balls and crackers? Like quarter size.

We have people over a lot and I always do cheese, crackers & soprasatta, veggies & dill dip, pigs in a blanket (they go the fastest), chips & salsa. I don’t normally get too fancy because I like things to be easy and I don’t want a lot of fuss while people are over. Our new years parties usually involve a ham with mustards, etc.
For the superbowl, we had a bunch of people over and our friends Girlfriend made these delishious baked appetizers. But she was stuck in our kitchen for like an hour because they had to be made a la minute and served hot so she missed a lot of the game.

I would come just for the cranberry margaritas! For apps I would keep it simple, although the buffalo chicken meatballs sound awesome.

allrecipes.com has some great app recipes.
I like to keep it simple-Guacamole, veggies & dip, hummus and pita chips, mini meatballs, wings

Are you going out to dinner? or just to a bar/club? If you’re going out to dinner I’d keep it super light like cheese and crackers and veggies and dip. If not you can get more creative. What about a warm spinach and artichoke dip with crackers or toast points, buffalo chicken dip, mushroom caps, etc? thepioneerwoman.com has some great app recipes.

We definitely want easy stuff! Pigs in a blanket sounds so easy! Not something I would usually make, either, Thanks!
@Corgi, I think we’re going to a piano bar, but there are no plans to do dinner. I don’t want to throw my own party AND expect people to shell out money to attend, haha.
I’m leaning towards meatballs with veggie sticks (and homemade ranch–seriously 5 ingredients and delish), rotel dip+chips, these pigs, and maybe some toasted ravioli?
We need stuff with substance, ya know? haha.

@ejs4y8: mmm rotel dip. i agree with substance if you’re not doing dinner. could you maybe do skewers of grilled chicken as well? my mom makes that for parties a lot… she cuts it in thin strips and marinates it in olive oil and various spices and then skewers it and cooks it. its really good as a “base” for all the junk and alcohol you’ll inevitably consume haha.

when my girlfriends and I get together we usually have a bit of an italian themed spread going on…last time we had proscuitto bread, rosemary bread, a cheese platter w/brie, taleggio, etc, olives, a salad, pepperoni bread, a frittata, and a little salami/antipasto type of thing
when i do the same stuff w/my guy friends I make wings, mini meatball subs, sausage & peppers, and have loads and loads of chips and dip out.
