Finger Sandwiches

Finger Sandwiches True to their name, these fancy little sandwiches are perfect finger foods. To make them, all you have to do is make your favorite sandwich, then remove the crusts of the bread and cut it into four squares or four strips. Try cucumber, cream cheese and dill or roast beef with Swiss cheese and a dab of horseradish. Shrimp with avocado is another yummy choice.


Finger sandwiches are a great option for entertaining, as they can be served as a snack or appetizer. Additionally, they can be customized to suit any dietary needs. For a vegan option, try hummus and roasted vegetables. For gluten-free guests, you can use gluten-free bread and sandwich fillings. Finger sandwiches can also be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve. For a fun presentation, try arranging the sandwiches on a tiered platter or tray.


Chips and Guacamole

Chips and Guacamole No one willingly turns down guacamole and since you can scoop it with a chip in your fingers, it’s an ideal choice for a party. Guacamole is generally mashed avocado with tomato, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Corn chips are the perfect thing for getting it from the bowl to your mouth. Serve some salsa to for a real crowd pleasing snack.


Bacon Jalapeno Poppers

Bacon Jalapeno Poppers This is one of my favorite finger foods. I usually eat more than I should and regret it later. To make this one of a kind treat, cut a slit in several jalapenos. Remove the seeds and fill the cavity with cream cheese. Wrap each jalapeno with a half strip of bacon and grill or bake the poppers until the pepper is soft and the cheese is soft and melty.



Pinwheels All you need to have at home to make pinwheels is tortillas, cream cheese, sliced black olives and diced green chilies. Spread the cream cheese on the tortillas, then scatter with the olives and chilies. Roll the tortilla, then slice it into finger sized bites. Really – who doesn’t love these things?



Popcorn Popcorn is so easy to make and everyone loves it. In fact, I pop some anytime there are friends at my house. You can serve it with butter and salt if you want, but you can also glam it up so it’s something special. Try Parmesan cheese and chili powder or ranch powder. Tasty!
