Hey, im 17 and my neighbor is having about 50 people over for a wine and cheese tasting party, afterwards, she wanted me to put out about 6 different hors d'oeuvres (3 that ill put on the table, 3 that people will walk around and serve to the guests)

I could really use some help with recipes (preferably ones that i could do a lot of prep for ahead of time cause the party's on a school night). I really dont know what to make and i could REALLY use all the help i can get!!!

Thanks so much!! ;)

Buy one of those "whole" smoked salmons - serve on baguette slices with a spread of cream cheese, red onion, lemon juice, and capers, top with a piece of salmon and a dollop of the cream cheese spread - you could even add some horseradish and cream to that spread so it's not so stiff.

Stuffed mushrooms can be made ahead and just reheated.

London Broil with Chimichurri sauce (many recipes on the web) - this can be served cold so it is idea to do ahead.

make some chicken liver pate and put it on some crackers, i don't have the recipe that i used with me (am at work) but it was so simple to make and my bf and friend LOVED it (i think i have a post on it with the ingredients but not what to do with them, search the net and you would find heaps). I also spread it on some puff pastry, rolled it and baked it (i had to get rid of it i made way to much)

i will see if i can find the recipe when i get home and post it!

buy a box of puff pastry dough, unroll it and cut it into squares. Spread a little bit of goat cheesse on it, add some chopped sun dried tomatoes, and bake them for about 10 minutes at 375 (basically bake them until they are puffed and brown).

you can make these up ready to back on parchment paper and keep them in the fridge until you're ready to bake them. they can be served cooled, but taste better served warm.

have fun!
