Trivia Night at My Place
« on: December 11, 2012, 05:25:22 PM »
If you were invited to a night of trivia games what would you want to munch on?

I've got 8 guests coming. I want something more special than chips and dip and I'd like to make several options for folks both sweet and savory.

Drinks will be hot punch  coffee, wine, beer, iced tea and water.

Other than a plate of Christmas cookies, I haven't given it any thought.
Just because you're disappointed in me doesn't mean I did anything wrong.

Crackers with different cheeses.  Hummus with warm pita triangles.  Some mini cupcakes or something for the sweet.

Actually, onion rings are sounding mysteriously good. (Horseradish sauce?)

There's a pretty good thread of easy appetizer recipes going on in the Recipe folder:

Might give you some ideas.

This is my new favorite thing to make for small parties: http://www.justapinch.com/recipes/main-course/pork/ooey-gooey-ham-and-cheese-sliders.html

The recipe calls for regular dinner rolls but it's even more delicious if you use the Hawaiian sweet rolls. It is seriously such a good snack that I look for chances to make them. I'm even making a batch in Christmas Day!!

Aside from those, I'd do maybe deviled eggs, homemade potato skins, mini crab cakes, cheese. & crackers, veggies & dip, spinach artichoke dip, cookies, cupcakes, crockpot meatballs...gosh, can you tell I'm hungry?

Sell crazy somewhere else, we're all stocked up here.

Hmmmmm

If it is post dinner time, I'd want lighter items.

Feta cheese drizzled with honey and black pepper and some crackers.
Mixed nuts
Spicey crackers like these can also be made with oyster crackers

Cookies or brownies
Maybe a plate of sliced Italian meets and cheeses
Marinated olives

cupcakes, cashews, fruit platter, cheese and crackers.
I've played pub trivia at meal times, then it's usually burgers and fries.

I'm addicted to the sauce at Burger Kind.  So bad for you, but so good with onion rings.

I saw an appetizer of egg salad on little pieces of rye bread that looked good to me.  People might actually like deviled eggs, too.

If it were very cold you might think about serving some cups of soup.

These are good & they're a bit more festive than regular nuts.  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/saras-secrets/mixed-nuts-with-rosemary-recipe/index.html

Thanks for the help, everyone. The nuts do look good. And easier to make than spiced nuts.

Egg salad sounds refreshing for some reason. I did think about soup. I could do chili. Thick enough to be scooped with those large Fritos.

I do think I'll make something similar to crock pot meatballs. I have a great recipe for sausage balls made with hot sausage, Bisquik and cheddar that's easy and very popular.

My problem is, I love finger foods and could make way too much.
