Staff Christmas party at the house any ideas!
      #1082979 - 12/11/09 10:18 AM (76.11.76.156)

Ok next Friday I am having the staff and a few people over for a Christmas party.

Here is what I am making so far...any other suggestions
please and thanks

1. Sweet and Sour Meatballs
2. Coconut Shrimp with sauce
3. Crab Dip with Vegatables and Crackers
4. Spinach Balls ( I will post the recipe later)

Kim is making her famous cheesecake

I am thinking I need more stuff (there will be 10 -12 people)

Any ideas on some other finger foods. One person does not like seafood of any kind.

Thanks

--------------------
Cheers

Michael

Some good cheeses cut into cubes with crackers always seems to go fast, or a cheeseball and crackers.

I always make cucumber sandwiches too:

Cucumber Sandwiches
1 - 8 oz cream cheese
1 - dry pack of Good Seasons Italian dressing
loaf of party rye or pumpernickel
2 cucumbers
dill weed

Soften cream cheese and mix with seasoning pack. Spread on party rye, top with a cucumber slice, sprinkle with dill weed.

How about Bruscetta? The red of the Tomatoes and the green of the basil make it nicely festive.

Another thing my mom use to do, I have done a few times, but it takes time.

Vegetable Christmas tree
Cone shaped styrofoam - from a craft store
using toothpicks cover with pieces of broccoli
decorate with grape tomatoes
surround with cauliflower (snow)
Sometime I cut red and yellow peppers into strips and use for garland

Serve with a veggie dip

Biggest hit at all the parties, marinate wingettes in teriyaki sauce over night. Bake at 350, until golden brown/crispy. (around 40 minutes) So easy, and so good!

Definitely need some crunchy things--veggies are easy, with a nice dip. Also, someone posted that chocolate covered pretzel receipe the other day, that looked great! Also, devilled eggs always seem to go over great for me.

Michael, I served this at a Christmas party this year and it was the biggest hit there. Really simple to make also.

1 can chicken
1 pkg cream cheese softened
1 pkg dry ranch dressing mix

Soften cheese, food process chicken and mix all together. I put mine in a Christmas tree mold lined with Saran wrap.
Serve with crackers or veggies.

Hope your Christmas is merry.

Michael,

Crockpot Pulled Pork...
Do a 3 (or so) pound bonless pork loin roast overnight in a crockpot with 1 can chicken stock...
drain liquid and then "pull" apart with two forks until well shreaded...
put back in crockpot and dump in your favorite BBQ sauce until it's the way you like it...
Re-heat and serve in the crockpot when ready to use...
Serve with small soft rolls or "slider" rolls... and a good BEER!

a real crowd pleaser at something like you are having!
using small rolls keeps them in the finger food category...
also good with cole slaw topping...
We just put the crockpot out on the serving table, with the cole slaw & rolls next to it..
use a fork for serving the pork... works better than a spoon...
