finger food recipes for a couples wedding shower??

Published by at 2:55 am under grilling

We are giving a couples shower for my brother and his fiance. There will be about 20 couples at the shower. We are wanting to serve finger foods, but are concerned that finger foods are not going to be "manly" enough for all the guys at the shower. We just don't want to grill or have any type of "sit down and eat" foods, because there will be so much going on, and there will be drinking and we don't want every one to think they have to sit down and eat a "meal". Have any ideas or good finger food recipes?

Make you own trays; always have a veggie tray.

A fruit tray too:

1 (8 ounce) package strawberry cream cheese, softened
1 (7 ounce) jar marshmallow creme.
Using an electric mixer, blend cream cheese and marshmallow creme until mixed thoroughly.

Pigs-n-a-Blanket:Smokies wrapped in biscuits.

Queso: (for the men who needs meat)
1 Large box Velveeta
1 Pound sausage; cooked and drained
1 can HOT Rotel
1 can Regular Rotel

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips:
INGREDIENTS
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 Golden Delicious apples – peeled, cored and diced
8 ounces raspberries
1 pound strawberries
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons fruit preserves, any flavor

10 (10 inch) flour tortillas
butter flavored cooking spray
2 cups cinnamon sugar

DIRECTIONS
In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, Golden Delicious apples, raspberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar and fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator at least 15 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Coat one side of each flour tortilla with butter flavored cooking spray. Cut into wedges and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Sprinkle wedges with desired amount of cinnamon sugar. Spray again with cooking spray.
Bake in the preheated oven 8 to 10 minutes. Repeat with any remaining tortilla wedges. Allow to cool approximately 15 minutes. Serve with chilled fruit mixture.

    Black bean & mango chicken salad

    16 oz. black beans, drained
    10 oz. frozen corn
    1 C chopped mango
    1/2 lb. grilled chicken
    1/2 C chopped red pepper
    1/3 C fresh cilantro
    1/3 C red onion
    1/4 C lime juice
    1 C Italian dressing

    Toss all ingredients together, refrigerate at least an hour and serve in a large salad bowl with chips or crackers. You could even put it into pita bread and cut it into wedges. Just make a few batches of this to serve everyone adequately.

    You can make tiny finger sandwiches with cool cucumber and creme cheese filling, or smoked salmon. Mini burgers can be manly too:-). You can fill up puff pastry shells with brie cheese. My brother and my husband loves Caribbean patties.

    Sausage balls or sausage rolls are good. These are both Bisquick recipes. For the sausage rolls you mix 2 cups of Bisquick with 2/3 cup of milk. Separate the dough into 2 balls. Roll out half the dough and spread 1/2 lb sausage on it. Roll it up like a jelly roll then wrap it in wax paper and then aluminum foil. Do the same with the other half of the dough. Freeze the rolls. When ready to bake, thaw slightly then cut into 1/4" circles. Bake for 15 minutes at 350degrees.

    I can't remember the sausage roll recipe right off the top of my head, but it should be pretty easy to find. It is basically Bisquick and cheeze and sausage, roll it into balls and bake.

    BOURBON HOT DOGS
    1 small bottle BBQ sauce
    1 lb. brown sugar
    Bourbon whiskey to taste
    5 lbs. hot dogs, cut into bite-sized pieces
    Heat BBQ sauce in large pot. Add brown sugar and stir until dissolved. Add Bourbon, then sliced hot dogs. Simmer on very low heat for 1/2 hour. Turn heat off and serve in chafing dish to keep hot (or crockpot)… Serves 12-15

    HAM BALL
    1 (4-1/2 oz) cans deviled ham
    3 TB. chopped stuffed green olives
    1 Tb. prepared mustard
    tabasco sauce to taste
    1 (3 oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
    2 tsp. milk
    parsley
    assorted crackers
    Blend ham, olives, mustard & tabasco. Form into ball on serving dish & chill. Combine cream cheese & milk; frost ball with this mixture. Chill. Remove from refrigerator 15 min. before serving & trim with parsley. Serve with crackers….

    These 2 appetizers are "manly", and you can do some mini cream puffs and fill them with egg salad…. Veggie plates are popular (my husband and sons-in-law all love them)….The standard Spinach Dip (on box of Knorr pkg. vegetable soup mix) in a hollowed-out sourdough loaf….

    Cold cuts, cheese and crackers, and breads of various types, with all the condiments to make your own mini-sandwich…..also veggie trays, and fruit trays, with dip. And a variety of chips and nuts. That along with the cake should do.

    I don't mess with finger foods that have to be prepared at the last minute. All of these items can be made a couple of days ahead and served chilled or warmed in the oven before serving.

    BBQ chicken wings
    cocktail meatballs
    deviled eggs
    sliced fruit/veggies with dip
    sub sandwiches sliced every inch
    stuffed mushroom caps
    mini quiches
    celery sticks stufed with peanut butter/cheese filling/tuna salad
    crab puffs
    cold boiled shrimp with cocktail sauce
    cookies
    brownies

    Buy frozen meatballs and heat some up in the slow cooker. Use different sauces for dipping such as marinara, sweet and sour, and barbecue. A nacho or a tostada bar would be good too. Put out chips or tostadas, cheese, shredded chicken and beef, salsa, guacamole, and sour cream.

    Meat ball/Sausage biscuits. You take Pillsbury biscuits pull each one apart and spread one half on baking sheet. Spoon your favorite pasta sauce (I like Prego) over the biscuit half, cut meatball in half press on top of sauce, sprinkle with mozzarella (shredded cheese) and put the other half of biscuit on top. You can sprinkle with oregano/parsley/melted butter mixture on top. Bake 350 for 15 minutes. ENJOY!
