One of the most popular catering trends of 2019 was miniature finger foods, and the novelty has yet to wear off! Mini sandwiches are still among the top-requested items at catered events this year. The great thing about sandwiches is that they are so versatile; you can make them as gourmet or kid-friendly as you like, and even match them to your party theme. Other popular choices have been mini veggie wraps, turkey burger sliders, and mini chicken brats. Use a whole-grain or homemade bread, coupled with some tasty condiments that are good for you, like ground mustard, avocado, or an olive-oil based vinaigrette. Also, using real cheese slices really enhances flavor and texture.
Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits
When you mix cream and fruit together, you get a delicious and better-for-you dessert loved by people of all ages. Fruit and yogurt parfaits are great because they can be made with an endless combination of fruits, creams, juices, and yogurts. And the fancy parfait glasses are usually a big hit as well. You can match your recipe you’re your party theme, or provide an array of options for guests. Parfaits are quick and easy to make, and provide a healthier, natural alternative to processed sugar. You can also make them with frozen yogurt for summer occasions.
Grilled Vegetable Kabobs
Again, finger foods are a popular item for parties. And what better way to spice up veggies than to put them on a stick and grill them? Kabobs are convenient, no matter what you put on them, and vegetables are delicious when grilled. The flavors of grilled vegetables really pop, so people like them more when they are cooked this way. Putting them on a stick makes them easier to eat, so more people are likely to go for them too. The best part about veggie kabobs other than their healthiness is their versatility. You can mix and match a wide range of vegetables, and match them according to theme or season.
