Finger foods for lunch are excellent when you are hosting an event that involves plenty of mingling. When you want to make the most of every minute by meeting and greeting everyone, the last thing you want is to be seated for most of the afternoon. What some people might wonder is what kinds of foods they should serve and the good news is that you have more options than you think!
The first order of business are sandwiches. Now, we're not talking about your regular, plain bread and topping type sandwiches that you whip up for the kids when you're in a hurry. These sandwiches include a variety of toppings and you can even opt for baguettes or wraps if you prefer. Sandwiches should include meat and non-meat options as well as plenty of fresh salad items. The salad toppings like lettuce, tomato, and cucumber add flavour while keeping the sandwiches moist and that much more nutritious.
Apart from sandwiches, you can also serve a wide variety of other finger foods such as chicken wings, quiche (or mini quiches), kebabs (meat and non-meat options), prawns for seafood lovers, spring rolls (with meat, vegetables, or both), and a selection of dips of course. Since everyone has different preferences, it's good to offer several sauces and dips. It's also important to make sure that you choose your sauces according to the foods you are serving. Sweet and sour or sweet chilli sauce goes really well with foods like spring rolls whereas BBQ or ranch dressing might be preferred for those chicken wings. Make sure that you include at least one sweet, one spicy, and several mild options.
As for dessert, mini cakes, biscuits, and anything you can hold between two fingers are ideal. After enjoying all the delicious food set out on the finger food buffet, dessert is usually enjoyed in moderation. Keep the portions small. Your guests can always have more than one but it's best to avoid any waste. Fruit is also a great idea for a healthy dessert option. Fruit kebabs look great and they are easy for your guests to pick up and enjoy too!
