The Best Foods For Your Holiday Party
Whether your holiday party is being catered at a Pawleys Island restaurant or you’re creating the menu from scratch, there are some easy appetizers perfect for any size crowd. When you want to offer the flavor of fine dining but the ease of finger foods, these are the best holiday party recipes to try.
Tomato Basil Soup
Tomato basil soup is the perfect party starter. You can make a large quantity of the soup and serve it in plastic shot glasses or cocktail glasses so party guests can sip and mingle without worrying about a spoon. If you’re not up for the tomato mashing, a quick search of restaurants near me in Pawleys Island will turn up Chive Blossom. Our recipe is thick and creamy and the red color is the perfect addition to any holiday setting.
Pawleys Island restaurants have become known for their Pimento Cheese. This southern favorite is an easy-to-make recipe or you can turn to Chive Blossom for delicious homemade Pimento Cheese, served with crisp lavash.
A basic Mango Gazpacho recipe will add a burst of color and unexpected flavor to your holiday table. However, if you want to treat your holiday party guests to a real fine dining treat, add avocado, shrimp, crab, and lobster.
Seafood is a popular dish for holiday parties, but a Pawleys Island restaurant-style crab cake will be easy for guests to snack on and filling without the need for a sit down dinner. Crab cakes seared until golden brown and served with freshly made cocktail or remoulade sauce will be a sure hit with your guests.
Sweet Potato Bites
A perfect side item to a formal dinner or casual cocktail party is a platter of sweet potato bites. The sweetness of the marshmallow from this recipe will be the perfect intro into dessert or will partner well with a dessert wine.
Another easy-to-make appetizer that offers a splash of holiday color is Caprese Bites. The mozzarella paired with tomato and basil are the perfect holiday colors and the flavor is like that of a fine dining Pawleys Island restaurant (all without even turning on the stove).
A class holiday party staple if the Shrimp Cocktail. If you need a hand, nearly any Pawleys Island seafood restaurant offers the dish. If you’re up for preparing the platter yourself, try your hand at this garlicky recipe.
Your holiday party is sure to impress and if you want to spend more time on the Secret Santa gifts than the food, hire a Pawleys Island restaurant catering service. Your guests will love the familiar flavors and you get to concentrate on your party instead of the kitchen.
