Between Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years – it’s Holiday season, full force. A whole season of potlucks, hosting, dinner parties, and get-togethers. Finger foods are the glue that holds these things together! Creating easy to serve, small portioned dishes makes the party flowing, people up and talking and, of course – merry. These finger food recipes will keep things moving smoothly as you bounce from event to event, and keeping it simple, easy, and delicious along the way.
I just want to make these so I can walk around saying “puffy tacos?” over and over again. If the last 5 years has taught us anything in the food world, it’s that the people love tacos. So give the people their tacos, finger-food puffy style.

Appetizers and finger foods often just means miniatures of food favorites. Grilled cheese? Well, who doesn’t love that?!

Genius by re-purposing a mini muffin tin, you can serve up some ultimate comfort food in one bite portions with these macaroni & cheese cups.

These are so easy to make, and always a hit at parties. The asparagus crisps up along with the prosciutto making a finger food that will make you wish it was a whole side dish.

A few years back, Eggo came out with frozen mini waffles. Probably because parents were frustrated cutting up those full-sized varieties for their kids, and they were adorable and easy to serve, so whatevs. Now – in what I’m proclaiming as the “slider era” of appetizer foods, these little mini waffles sure are coming in handy!

Yes of course you can buy the frozen boxed variety of these, but cut down on costs, and get more street cred with the homemade version that’s oh-so-easy!

They’re actually even smaller than traditional sliders, with these homemade mini burger buns and mini burger patties, you’ll have women oohing and awwing while the men will likely just be happy at the sight of burgers at all.

Single serving, no forks required. It might be simple, but it’s got creative points, comfort food points, no-mess-bites-of-delicious points. Plus the ooh’s and aww’s!

No cheese knives needed for serving up this one. It’s like a poptart on stick – but made of puff pastry, brie cheese and jam and served up individually for the perfect brie experience.
