Tapas Finger Food Recipes are anything on a stick, bruschetta topped with a variety of veggies or meat and easy to prepare small plate dining, in my kitchen!
Finger Food Gatherings
Whether it’s out on your patio or nuzzled fireside, an evening meal of Finger Food can be most enjoyable!
Like many tapas spreads, they can be carefully planned or simply rummage around in your fridge and pantry to pull together a delicious spread of dishes.
You’d be surprised how fast they can look and taste as though carefully planned.
Bruschetta As Tapas
One item I often keep in my fridge is Onion Jam, a recipe that simmers a heap of onions, some garlic, a splash of sugar and a hint of Ghost Chili.
Onion Jam is great on anything from hotdogs and burger, to a beautifully showcased Brussels Sprout Slider. For this spread I added it to roasted beets with fresh herbs.
Every Great Tapas Spread Needs Fabulous Bread
Basically, anything that is easy to eat as a finger food can be served on a tapas spread, on lots of small plates.
However, much like the way the Middle East dines, scooping food with a piece of bread, tapas selections are enhanced with great selections of bread.
Absolutely, consider stopping at a neighborhood bakery for a few loaves of hard crusty bread, or plan ahead and make any variety of nutritious as well as pretty bread choices.
- Butterfly Pea Flower Tea Bread – often purple or blue in color which beautifully braids with a white dough
- Beetroot Spinach Bread Bread – magenta and green in color, and most flavorul
- Spelt Potato Bread – rustic and hearty
- Pumpkin Pita Bread – also made with butternut squash
Mini Kabobs For Finger Food
Don’t you just love anything on a stick? I’ve always found it a great way to feed the kids; less messy and it seems they eat what’s on a stick before they will a plate.
If chicken kabobs are what you’re after, I’ve loved basting the flavors of a Sweet & Sour Mango Sauce before roasting.
This sauce is easily made with fresh or frozen mangos, garlic, chili peppers and the sweet and sour of vinegar and sugar or honey.
But the kabobs don’t stop there; not when you’ve got a few other tried and true recipes that make for great kabobs;
Avocado Toast For Tapas Gatherings
Also vegetarian options, such as avocados, some pureed and some sliced, and hard boiled eggs over olive oil toasted baguette slices, with a few micro-greens.
Nothing quite as refreshing, healthy and filling as an avocado toast with an egg on it! Store bought baguettes make this tapas dish easy.
Simply slice, brush with olive oil, place in the oven just to toast the tops and it’s ready for this luscious topping.
Eggs Are Always Welcome As Finger Food
Always welcome on my tapas table spread, is eggs, especially if they are as colorful as my Beetroot Avocado Egg Salad.
Or perhaps a power-packed Egg Muffin Cups with everything in them from meat to dried fruit.
Tapas Finger Food
For me, a tapas style of serving food at a gathering, is just a wise way to make lots of easy to assemble dishes, offer lots of variety, do much of it in advance and have lots of time with guests when it’s time to eat!
Everything here is fast and easy. Grab a few baguettes from the bakery, and head home to work with what might already be in your fridge.
