My family has a tradition of having a Christmas Eve cocktail party with a country/region as our theme. We have had very successful Spanish Tapas and French hors d'oeuvre parties. This year the theme country is Germany (which I am stretching to include Alsace and Austria!). So far we have the following menu ideas but I would truly welcome any ideas for items that could be made into single size/appetizer portions.
-Sauerbraten dumplings (sauerbraten and a little red cabbage packaged in soup dumplings)
-Bite size "real" mini hot dogs using puff pastry and good wursts
-Alsatian mini flatbreads with emmentaler, caramelized onions and lardons
-Chestnut soup served in little shot sized glasses
-Spinach and warm potato salad
Thanks so much for any ideas you might have!
