- Wedding: April 2017 - City, State
I’m working on my cocktail hour menu and trying to come up with ideas.
What are some of your favorite passed hors d’oeuvres to eat during cocktail hour? Anything you really look forward to eating? Any foods you find don’t work well?

I love anything! Except salmon mousse I just can’t do it! We were at a wedding recently with spring rolls. They were served in a little shot glass with sauce for dipping at the bottom I thought they were cute! I’m not a huge fan of anything overly fancy but that’s just personal preference 🙂 they also had a cheese spread with many different cheeses than your standard cheddar.

I once went to a wedding that had tomato soup shooters with mini grilled cheeses and it was AMAZING!!

I love sushi, dumplings, spicy prawn or chicken skewers, rice paper springrolls
Things I don’t like are fried foods. I much prefer fresh ingredients

Anything that’s not “fancy” and isn’t super messy. I like finger foods that are easy to walk around and eat without a plate (even if the plan isn’t to have guest walk around, eat, and socialize. I just personally feel like food that you need to eat sitting down with a plate is better suited for dinner.) My faves include pot stickers, mini grilled cheese, egg or spring rolls, mini empanadas, sliders, skewers, won tons, taquitos etc. 🙂

We had several different appetizers, but let me tell you…our spinach and artichoke puff things (not sure what they are technically called lol) were GREAT. Had a lot of compliments about them.
