Veggie tray - (got some healthy folks in the crowd)
Salad rolls
Stuff on toast points or sesame crackers

Teeny weenies wrapped in bacon

I just wanted to say, I thought Braunschweiger was smoked liverwurst, like pastrami is smoked corned beef.....rrrright? It's delicious by the way.

How about some mini-buns with some meatballs, little meatball sliders?
And a plate of mini muffins, blueberry, chocolate chip, apple crumble?

I didn't realize that braunschweiger was considered liverwurst, so am curious myself. I don't really like liverwurst, but do like braunschweiger... as long as it's Smiths. I would have to say it's an acquired taste though. I can see it being great in appys and finger foods.

How about something on a toothpick? Take a piece of jarred roasted red pepper, a piece of artichoke heart, and a piece of fresh mozzarella and put them on a tooth pick. You can also swap out the artichoke for a black olive on some.

Yum How about topping some crostini out of one of those skinny baguettes and top with Avocado, mashed, mayoand a little evoo to hold it together, crushed garlic and several dashes of Tabasco Olives marinated in evoo, orange zest OJ crushed garlic and salt and pepper, these are goodEndive boats filled part way with smoked salmon whipped cream cheese some creme fraiche some grated sweet onion lemon juice and some fresh dill.

Awesome CJ! Keep those ideas coming and I'll pick what I can do and what I can't do now, I'll try for another party.

Dave, YUMMY! Now I just have to buy toothpicks...I'll definitely try this one.

Blissful, I like the mini muffin idea, but I don't have a mini muffin tin. I'd have to buy that. I'm considering being lazy on the dessert end of things and buying a box of those mini cream puffs at Costco, and a box of two bite brownies.

Hope this help it's fun
