5 party food ideas for a quick get-together at home

In these first few weeks of the year, you’ll probably find yourself pencilling in parties in your planners. And if you happen to be hosting one, you know it’s not an easy affair. There are some great party food ideas that can help you. Here are 5 party snack ideas that’ll come to your rescue when planning a get-together.

1. Beetroot, garlic and mushroom canape recipe



Step 1: Take 150 grams of chopped beetroot with 125 grams of ricotta and 3 tablespoons of creme fraiche, and put these ingredients in afood processor for your canape recipe.
Step 2: Once the mix is a little coarse, transfer it to a bowl and mix in some dill which is roughly chopped. Put the bowl in the fridge to let it chill for a few minutes.
Step 3: In a large frying pan, add some butter and let it melt over a low flame. Add in some chopped mushrooms and some finely chopped garlic, and fry until deep brown.
Step 4: Spread some whole-wheat olive oil crackers out on a large serving platter. Remove the bowl with the mix from the fridge and put small spoonfuls of the beetroot mixture on each cracker. Place a few of the garlic-fried mushrooms on top of the beetroot mix and serve.

 

2. Fruit and cheese platter



Step 1: Choose three types of cheeses for your platter. Try to use different shapes and textures so as to offer your guests a variety. Since the texture of the cheese often gives it its shape, you can aim to identify your cheese based on this. The best pairings are soft and sweet brie cheeses, or burrata, with a hard cheddar or gouda, and a crumbly blue, gorgonzola or feta cheese.
Step 2:To amp up this party food idea, pair your cheeses with fruits that are known to go well with them, like olives, pears, grapes, apricots, figs, pomegranates, blood oranges, and berries like blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries. 
Step 3:Finally, choose a nice dip or chop up some nuts to add to your platter. Meats, bread, crackers, and even dark chocolate also pair excellently with cheeses.

3. Blue cheese and shallot pizza recipe

This pizza is minimalistic and works as an easy party snack recipe to prepare, which can double up an appetizer or a complete meal.
Step 1:Take a frying panand heat a tablespoon of oil and 25 grams of butter in it. Add 8 finely sliced baby shallots and cook them until they turn a slight golden brown. Set these aside. Add a few small sliced leeks to the pan and cook them until they are soft. Stir in some garlic cloves for flavour, and cook for no more than a couple of minutes. Set your pan aside to cool down.
Step 2:Place a few readymade pizza bases on a tray and brush them with oil to prep. Sprinkle half a tablespoon of semolina below each pizza base. Then, spread on some pizza sauce, and place your toppings of leeks, shallots and garlic on each base. Sprinkle blue cheese and a handful of chopped walnuts over the topping. Let these bake in your oven until you see the base become golden and crisp. 
    

4. Strawberry cheesecake shots recipe


Step 1:Crumble some biscuits, preferably digestive biscuits for the best flavour, into a bowl. Crumble about 75 grams of biscuits, or more according to how long your guest list is. Pat a spoonful and a half of this crumble into as manyglassesyou’ll be serving. 
Step 2:In a large bowl, mix a can of condensed milk with the juice of one lemon, as well as a little zest. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract and stir the mix together until it’s thick and heavy.
Step 3:Whisk about 150 grams of light cream cheese with 150 grams of greek yoghurt in another bowl until the mix is smooth. Fold this mix into the thick condensed milk mix. Ensure you don’t beat the mixture too much.
Step 4:Take spoonfuls of this mix and top the biscuit base with it, leaving room for some fruit. Put these in the fridge to chill, and chop 300 grams of strawberries. Mix them with strawberry jam and add this as a top layer and final touch to your cheesecake. 

 

5. Fruit punch recipe



Step 1:In a large bowl, combine 2 cups each of pineapple juice and orange juice, 1 cup each of grapefruit juice and water, and a tablespoon of lemon juice. Add some diced or sliced fruits to this fruit punch recipe like apples, oranges, pineapples, grapes, strawberries and lemon wedges. Stir well.
Step 2:Place the bowl in the fridge for about 45 minutes to allow it to chill.
