Any suggestions for Holiday Party Hot Hors D’oeuvres and Veggie Dishes?

JMF | Nov 18, 2006 08:17 PM

I am having a holiday party for around a 15+ folks the saturday after Thanksgiving. It's an all day and night party. I want it to be simple and easy for me since I will be doing some crazy cooking earlier in the week. I want to be able to actually sit and hang out with my friends for a change.

I am setting out a spread of stuff to nibble on all day and night. I need a few hot hors d'oeuvres that I can easily and quickly prepare ahead the day before and then just throw in the oven to heat and serve. Also a veggie dish that can be prepared earlier that day and left out at room temp that will go good with a sweet and spicy glazed ham. Thanks in advance -JMF-

So far my menu is:

Cold Foods-
Roasted sweet peppers in oil
Hot peppers stuffed with provolone and prosciutto
Shrimp cocktail with several sauces
Pickled asparagus and other veggies
Assorted dipping oils and balsamic vinegars
Assorted cheeses
Assorted breads

Glazed roast ham (Lemon/lime marmalade, hot peppadew, mustard, bourbon glaze)

mixed greens

Warm Foods-
Roasted root veggie soup
Veggie Dishes?

Assorted pies
Cranberry / Apricot / Apple crisp or cobbler
Whipped cream with vanilla

Whipped cream eggnog
Hot mulled cider
Hot mulled wine
Assorted liqueurs
Aged rum
Beer- Fuller’s, Erdinger, etc.
Assorted Wines
