Heavy appetizers party
Karen Davis
Hello Ellen and I hope your holiday was great!!! I am doing another heavy appetizer party for our schools auction to raise money for scholarships for the kids. It is being held at 5:00 PM on a Saturday and will include only adults, no drinking and right now is 150 attendees. I have plenty of help and a large kitchen. I will premake what I can and freeze and reheat.
I am having 11 bistro tables set around the larger tables that will have silent auction items on them.
This is what I am thinking for the appetizers:11 stations with 225 pcs each ( I am planning on 1 1/2 apps per person)
Open faced chicken Parmesan sandwiches
Crispy ravioli w/ a spicy Alfredo drizzle on a Japanese spoon
Mac and cheese bites with bacon and cheddar cheese topping
BBQ Pulled pork bruschetta with crispy onion topping
Mini cheese balls served on pretzel sticks and several 9" cheese tortas with crackers
Cheesy corn dog mini muffins with a Chili verde glaze
Mini spaghetti cups with a meatball on a stick
Tea sized egg salad sandwiches and deviled ham sandwiches
Taquitos served in a champagne glass with layered Mexican dip
Goat cheese and honey served on a sweet cracker topped with pecans
Wonton purse with turkey, cranberry sauce and brie
What think you Maestro?
Decided to nix the mac and cheese and add shrimp balls with a cherry glaze instead. So with 11 choices, at least 225 pieces per type that gives them about 16 pcs per person. Is this about right? Function will start at 5:00 PM and goes for 90 minutes or so with people circulating around the room.

Ellen function is not until February 22 so no hurry for answers.
