As the mini food trend continues to be a crowd favorite at parties and events, it’s important to be well-versed in everything these little unique bites have to offer. Offering mini menu items is a great way to incorporate variety into your food selection while adding a creative twist. Whether it’s just to snack or to act as a meal, here is a list of miniature bites and eats that will satisfy the crowd at your next event or gathering.
Served either hot or cold, soup shooters are a great way to experience an array of flavors on a grab-and-go basis. This is also a chance to highlight the produce of the season by using local- sourced foods and seasonings. Have the soup served in small glasses without spoons so that your guests can sip freely. Add a mini grilled cheese on the side to give your guests the classic soup and sandwich combo.
Mini Burger Sliders
Turn your ordinary burger into the perfect party bite. This crowd favorite is great for feeding hungry guests of any age. By shrinking this finger-food down to miniature size, you can ensure there’s no greasy mess or clean up. You can choose classic toppings like cheese, tomatoes, and pickles, or give it a southern twist with pimento cheese and BBQ sauce!
Just when you think you can’t make something mini, think again. Mini tacos are the perfect way to spice up your event. Choose between a variety of proteins such as carnitas, steak, chicken, meat-less tofu, or even consider trying fish or other seafood options to give a fresh and different taste! These mini tacos can be perfectly paired with chips and salsa or a delicious mini margarita.
Mini deli sandwiches are great for serving a variety of flavors with little preparation. The beauty of sandwiches is that each guest is bound to find a flavor or style they love. Mix it up by offering mini crab cake sandwiches or even a mini Philly cheesesteak option. Get creative and give your guests a simple yet delicious bite that can be devoured by the numbers.
You know what’s better than your average pizza party? A mini pizza party! Indulge in some cheesy goodness by serving bite-sized pies that you won’t feel guilty about after. Serving mini pizzas is a fun way to jazz up your event and get your guests involved. Have a self-serving station with various toppings and sauces to cater to each guest’s needs!
If you are wanting to serve something sweet yet unique, this one’s for you. Mini donuts are a fun and creative way to cater to a guest’s sweet tooth in a convenient way. Serve them in little paper bags or cups for the perfect on-the-go treat!
Mini Fall Treats
With the fall season in full swing, spice up your event with autumn-themed treats and sweets. This could include mini pumpkin pies, decorative cake pops or even red velvet mini cupcakes. Everybody loves a fall-centric dessert due to its sweet and cozy feel, so start thinking what type of mini seasonal treat you’d like to serve at your next event!
