We are catering a christmas party for a local bank. There will only be about 40 people amd they want appetizers. We have never been asked to do appetizers for an event. What do you suggest? Their menu is pulled pork, brisket, cheesy potatoes, and green beans.

Moink balls do sound yummy!

How about some smoked salmon that you then flake and serve with crackers. Maybe have a tray of cheese to go with the crackers too.

Best idea yet! :lol:

We do a BBQ every summer with a few dozen of our favorite, fellow Sharks hockey fans and one friend always brings a cooler full of jello shots. Yum-O!

Now your talkin!!!!!!


everyone,thanks for the replies. I have yet to try moink balls, but I sure will be trying them soon. Those bacon wrapped chicken look good also. Do you use a glaze with that(or some kind of dipping sauce)?

Either way, a assortment of dipping sauces may be cool! :biggrin:

Those look really good. We are considering a similar appetizer for an awards dinner in January that we are bidding on the catering. We were told this is a meat and potatoes kinda of crowd at this dinner. Hey, that seems right up our alley!

Smoked meat balls in sauce labeled "Reindeer Droppings" are always a favorite

I agree except I cut them into 4... makes a one bite serving that is great for this type of party....

I would also go with burnt ends... My customers go nuts over them... Cube the brisket point into 3/4 inch cubes and serve with toothpicks...

The other thing that goes over well is Spinich Balls... Basically Spinich and ground stuffing mix (and eggs and spices) and then cooked on a sheet pan and served with a chilled mayo/sour cream sauce...
