I choose appetizers that can be served at room temperature and everything is out on tables or ready to pass before the first guest arrives. Third, despite my passion for good food, it's not my first priority for a good cocktail party. The first one is the guest list. Are the people interesting?
Will they enjoy each other's company? Are there surprises? I sometimes ask people to bring friends who are fun so surprises happen. Cocktail parties with good, hearty food can be a very easy way to entertain, particularly on Friday night. I serve five or six different kinds of appetizers and three of each kind per person.
Plan a menu like a meal: seafood crab cakes , vegetables roasted eggplant , and meat chicken satay. You can even serve coffee and a country dessert platter at the end. What could be better? Roasted Eggplant Spread serves 6 to 8 This is not only good, it's good for you. Many years ago we developed a group of recipes that have almost no fat for customers who like to save their calories for dessert. I love to serve this alongside other Mediterranean specialties, such as hummus, pita bread, Greek olives, feta cheese, and stuffed grape leaves.
Cut the eggplant, bell pepper, and onion into 1-inch cubes. Toss them in a large bowl with the garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them on a baking sheet. Roast for 45 minutes, until the vegetables are lightly browned and soft, tossing once during cooking. Cool slightly. Place the vegetables in a food processor fitted with a steel blade, add the tomato paste, and pulse 3 or 4 times to blend. Taste for salt and pepper. Serve with toasted pita triangles or crackers. Lamb Sausage in Puff Pastry makes 28 appetizers; serves 6 to 8 Whenever I am catering a party and the husband wants good old "pigs in blankets" and the wife wants something more sophisticated, I recommend lamb sausage in puff pastry.
It looks the same but tastes so much better.

You can use any kind of thin fresh sausage for this recipe. I like to serve it with extra mustard. Bake the sausage on a baking sheet for 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature. Unfold the puff pastry on a lightly floured board. Cut each piece in half lengthwise and brush the top sides with mustard.
Divide the sausage into 4 equal pieces. Cut off the excess pastry. Roll the other 3 pieces of sausage in puff pastry. Place the 4 rolls, seam side down, on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush with the egg wash. Lightly score each roll diagonally to make 7 equal pieces. Bake at degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned.
Slice and serve immediately. Lobster Salad in Endive makes 24 appetizers; serves 6 to 8 If you want to be good to yourself and your guests at the same time, ask your fish store to sell you cooked fresh lobster meat, instead of cooking a lobster yourself. This is a great summer appetizer or a special treat for New Year's Eve. Louisa H on Jul 6, Enjoy Ina and her style. Ina rocks!!
