Finger Food for Parties

Finger Food for Parties

Last week was my 17th birthday and I celebrated with my friends and family. I decided to cook/bake the food. I really love to prepare food and drinks for parties and family events. It’s always stressful and a lot of to do but after all the long preparation I enjoy my work and I am very proud of myself. So I’ll share my recipes with you!


On Saturday I invited my friends I started with a bowl of exotic fruit and first served them a delicious fruit infused water with blueberry and lime.

BLUEBERRY-LIME WATER:
take a glass (it doesn’t matter which size), fill 3/4 full with water or sparkling water. Add 3 or 4 ice and an half sliced lime and a half hand full of blueberries. Drink immediately or freeze for a few hours. Enjoy!


In additon to my bowl of fruit, I made different kinds of pikant croissants with Prosciutto and ham.

HAM-CHEESE CROISSANTS: (approx. 6-7 croissants)

  • 1 pack of flaky pastry
  • 3 (approx. 2 millimeter thin) slices of lean ham
  • 1/2 pack of chopped cheese (I used a very mild cheese, for example mozzarella)
  • olive oil
  • 1 egg 
  • salt, pepper

At first chop the ham in to small cubes and put the cheese and the ham into a bowle. Season it with salt, pepper and a little shot of olive oil and stir the mixture.

After that preheat the oven to 210 degrees (top and bottom heat). Then take out the the pack of flaky pastry and spread it out on your work surface. Cut it into well-proportioned right-angled triangles and oil them (olive oil). 

Next take a bit of the mixture and put it on the more wide side of one of the triangles, then form them to croissants. After this step put them on a baking tray with a baking parchment and apply a mixed egg on the top. At last put the baking tray in the oven and bake them for 10-15 minutes, until they’re lightly golden brown.



PROSCUITTO-PESTO CROISSANTS:
(approx. 6-7 croissants)

  • 1 pack of flaky pastry
  • 10 dekagram of Prosciutto
  • 1 glass Pesto (basil or tomato)
  • 1/4 pack of chopped cheese (I used a very mild cheese, for example mozzarella)
  • 1 egg

At the very first chop the Prosciutto in to small pieces. After that preheat the oven to 210 degrees (top and bottom heat). Then take out the the pack of flaky pastry and spread it out on your work surface. Cut it into well-proportioned right-angeled triangles and daub them with Pesto. 

Next take a bit of the Prosciutto and put it on the more wide side of one of the triangles, then form them to croissants. After this step put them on a baking tray with a baking parchment, apply a mixed egg (on the top) and sprinkle it with the cheese. At last put the baking tray in the oven and bake them for 10-15 minutes until they’re lightly golden brown.

(HINT – don’t put too much Prosciutto into the croissants because the Prosciutto is very salty)

You can also put paprika, tomatoes (and so on), chorizo (Spanish sausage) or other sausages into the croissants.
Of course you can leave the Prosciutto out if you are a vegetarian.

Enjoy the finger food and have much fun baking!
