An old standby here is weenie wraps.. hotdogs cut into small pieces wrapped in bacon and baked. My MIL would make them all the time for family gatherings and I've continued the tradition at home. I do make chipotle mustard to dip them in though so I've added a twist to her standby.

How did I miss that?
.... Not really a fan of Ramsey
As it was, I made these with two(2) of my finest students for today. We were so far off the reservation of the given recipe that pretty much the only things remaining were the idea, the zucchini and the pine-nuts.
We used farmer's cheese. And we added sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, roasted red-pepper and a small shallot, all finely minced. We made caps of the extra condiments for them. At the very least, a third of them never left the kitchen. One of the worst offenders was the facility owner.
Ramsay's personalized videos are so very much different than his TV shows. You should try watching a few and you'll see a really big difference.
(My two(2) finest students are my niece's kids; a 8th grader and a HS Junior.)
Can cheese and crackers be a finger food? Because I am simply addicted to a cracker or slice of bread topped with camembert and fig jam. It's like buttered candy for adults :)
Oh k-girl, Ramsay is a top bloke in my book. Don't watch the stupid FOX shows he does, try to watch a few episodes of the f-word, it's a brilliant show and much more likeable Gordon, I'm so sad it's no longer on the BBC. Also, check out his youtube videos of cooking (many are excerpts of the f-word) and he makes some awesome stuff! Here's some of my favorite Gordon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5uXIPhxL5XA
Miss KK, ya’ know, I use to watch the F word as well as the other Ramsay TV programs in the past and he just turns me off for some reason.
And yes, I have watched some of his You Tube ‘blurbs’ as well Iceman, just not a fan. he makes very nice food, but…
As to finger foods, Love crackers! It must be a woman thing, crunchy, salty, all that…
Tried to make my own crackers a few times and it was a disaster!
@lee, I have never tried a chipotle mustard dip, but sounds like it would ROCK bacon-maple-wieners !! I still have half of a package left and we still need to feed guests for New Years Eve!!
New Year's Eve supper started with thick cut bacon wrapped lit'l smokies with two dipping sauces of honey mustard and sweet chili, as you can see they went fast I had to grab these two that were left on the platter...I only turned around to fill champagne glasses, where'd they go?
There's definitely something about bacon wrapped weiners that drive people to madness, I love them.
Hey kgirl, off-topic but are you rooting for the Hawaiian chef on Top Chef?
Here's something easy, while not cheap (stolen from Mark Bittman). Smirna dried fIgs, parmesan cheese, prosciutto:
Make tiny sandwiches:
Change the fruit, the cheese, the prosciutto (ham, bacon, etc.), add mayo, mustard, cream, etc. and you have some variations.
Another pleasant finger food: apricots in syrup, filled with a mix of blue and cream cheese. A fresh surprise in the mouth. No pics, sorry.
Ya' know Miss KK, I don't watch that program. Is that the one with Sam Choy? I love braddah Sam! His place in Honolulu on Nimitz Highway, BLC (Breakfast Lunch and Crab) is fantastic. If anyone has the chance, I highly recommend this restaurant, try the fried rice
No, it's Sheldon Simeon but he cooks a lot of Hawaiian food. I'm surprised you don't watch the show, it's good.
For a party last week I did some shepard's pie in mini muffin tins. Crusts are circles of whole wheat bread, flattened with a rolling pin. The mince has lamb, mushrooms, shallots, garlic.
Here they are waiting for the gravy and the mash. And that is chopped fresh mint on there.
They went fast.
MJB, that looks very interesting, flattened out bread you say?
Did the gravy bleed through at all?
I think I need to entertain more than at the holidays,
even if I make these foods for DH and I, two is a party, right?
I adore finger foods!
A friend calls it party food, true true!
oh, he's cooking on Maui at Star Noodle, I'm from Oahu, we didn't get over to Maui very often
as to the program, I stopped watching most of the cooking shows
