    I generally love pigs in blankets.
    I’d generally try party food from anywhere.
    It can be hit and miss from year to year.

    What’s your favorite party food?

    Beef sliders (i.e. mini burgers).
    Works with beer or wine.

    Superquinn cocktail sausages cooked in the same oven dish that I baked and glazed the ham in. Flavour is delish.

    Homemade sausage rolls made with parmsean and sun dried tomatoes added to the sausage meat.
    Now with a few drinks in me I'd eat anything at a party!!
    A cheese board just for me. Cashel blue, smoked cheddar, St. Killian camembert. Homemade chutney and decent crackers.

    A few southern fried chicken gougons usually go down well...😎

    Fond of some nice smoked salmon on brown soda bread or chicken liver pate on toast... divine.

    I usually make honey, mustard and sesame seed cocktail sausages and they're loved by my family and friends. I went to look for the recipe there, I'd never printed out just used the same website. It's gone :'( I've found some kinda similar but not the one I love. It was by the late Ross Burden.

    Oh I love cocktail sausages! Them, and chicken gougons are my two favourites.

    I love: devils on a saddle, devilled eggs, smoked salmon blinis, pate (also seafood-based) on toasted brioche, gazpacho shots.

    Dunnes stores frozen sausage rolls cooked in the oven they are fab
    Any vol au vents I love them
    Chicken Goujons
    the Indian selections can be nice too

    Only thing I avoid is prawns because I am allergic :)

    Me too. Everyone thinks I’m mad cause they taste so good. The texture is horrible and they look gross too.

    Would a tempura prawn not tempt you?

    My poor late aunt had prawn cocktail for years then one Christmas Day she took a reaction to them, she was in bed after dinner I was up and down the stairs checking on her I never forget it she was so ill, not like her to take to the bed, it wasn't the prawns because my mam had them too

    In fairness if the first time I saw one was scurrying around on the floor it would not have occured to me to try to eat it. Ditto for lobster!

    I used to think prawns were gross but love them now, how on EARTH can you turn down a tempura prawn or filo pastry prawn with sweet chilli sauce... :p yum. :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,130 ✭✭✭ Surreptitious


    Tempura prawns with sweet chili dip
    Duck spring rolls with Hoisin dip
    Cocktail sausages


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,525 ✭✭✭ John_Rambo


    This is a great thread for ideas.

    As much as I love prawns, you have to admire the first human to try them. They are a bit mad looking. I wonder was it a survival thing.

    Loving the vol eu vent revival, nothing posher than a few in the eighties.

    I'm going to put classic butter & garlic fried crab claws out there. With a very cold glass of Chablis.
