    Something quick & easy I make are pizza pinwheels i think they are called. They great warm or cold. It's basically sheets of puff pastry topped with pizza sauce and your favourite toppings as plain or gourmet as you like spread out on top or several different types

    Then roll up, slice into 1.5cm bits, brush with egg & bake until golden - they usually disappear pretty quick the taste website has some variations on them.


    Nibble platters with cheeses / cold meats / dips / olives etc

    At DD's birthday on the weekend one thing that was gobbled up quickly was the home made chicken fingers.
    The week before the party I cut chicken fillets into bite sized strips, crumbed them, browned them in the frying pan and then popped them in the oven to cook through. I them froze them until I needed them.
    On the day of the party I just had to defrost them and warm them in the oven. I served them with garlic aoli for people to dip them in

    Mini thai chicken burgers. I use turkish bread and a cookie cutter to cut out perfect sized buns, and I put lime & chili mayo on them with a tiny bit of lettuce. Soooooo yummy!

    I was going to say cob loaf -another great one that is always a hit that I do:
    Spread mashed avacado (mixed with a little lemon) over the bottom of a largish dish, then spread over a couple of tubs of sour cream, pour over a couple of jars of salsa (how hot you like it) and finally sprinkle grated cheese on the top.
    I serve with a variety of crackers, corn chips.

    RR (Laura) i think you might have to share your dip recipe here (... hey have you tried the Aldi mini quiches, they're yum )

    My fav party food would have to be the sweet side of things like good old-fashion lemon slice, jelly slice, choc ripple cake & cheesecake

    .... i always take my *** Pizza Pinwheels *** when i got to parties, & are eaten without fail (guys seem to love 'em) ... they can be eaten warm or cold, can make the night before too, ... my recipe is the scone dough one, ... If you'd like i can give it to you

    Anything smoked salmon!! Even when I am not pregnant (but can't wait till I have the baby and can eat a kg of it!!). My Dad rolls up bits of smoked salmon with a mix of cream cheese and marscapone cheese, held together with a toothpick and top with fresh dill and a squeeze of lemon....

    A different variation of brie/camembert is to use the whole round (not just a pie piece), top with chopped macadamia nuts...meanwhile caramalize some white suger in a pan until golden then pour on top and let it set. The cheese gets a little sweet but is still savoury and the toffee/nuts on top makes it really different.

    Home made sausage rolls are always a winner.

    We usually also buy some fresh chicken breast, slice thin and make our own BBQ'd kebabs...marinate in a couple of different marinades (ie mix of say honey/soy and another with say salt/pepper/five spice) and guests can either eat plain or have a satay dipping sauce.

    I also love dolmades too
