Christmas is a time for family, friends, and good food. Finger foods are the perfect way to enjoy a Christmas feast without having to worry about utensils or plates. If you are in need of some inspiration, here are some of our favorites.

Pigs In A Blanket

These little sausages wrapped in pastry are always a hit. Pigs in a blanket are easy to make and can be served hot or cold. They are also very versatile, so feel free to change up the flavours by using different types of sausages or pastry, like puff pastry or croissant dough.

Antipasti Platter

A selection of Italian meats, cheeses, and olives is always a popular choice. Choose a variety of different meats and cheeses, but make sure the colours match. This way it will look very festive on a platter. Also keep in mind that some people may have allergies or picky taste buds, so having a selection to choose from is always best.

Shrimp Cocktail

A classic for a reason! Shrimp cocktail is always a favourite, and it’s easy to make too. Just buy a few bags of frozen shrimp and thaw them out before serving. For the sauce, you can use either store-bought or homemade cocktail sauce.

Mini Quiches

This savoury dish is perfect for a Christmas brunch. You can make mini quiches in a muffin pan with meat and vegetables to suit everyone’s tastes. This is a great option because it can be made ahead of time and is easily reheated.
