We have selected for you some fresh ideas and 2 thematic recipes to make the Easter Fingerfood Buffet yourself.
Make your own delicious ideas for the Easter Fingerfood Buffet: Healthy stuffed eggs without mayonnaise
At Easter, of course, there are plenty of eggs to eat. Stuffed eggs or also known as Russian eggs and deviled eggs are a popular choice for numerous parties and finger food buffets. The classic recipe requires mayonnaise, which is not really tasty for everyone and consists mostly of oil. Nothing for guests who want to take care of their figure.
Instead, you can use whole milk yoghurt, like Greek yoghurt, or even humus as a milk-free alternative. The main thing – they are just as firm as traditional mayonnaise, otherwise the filling remains much too liquid.
Here are the necessary ingredients for 20 portions of healthy stuffed eggs:
10 hard-boiled eggs
1/2 cup yoghurt or humus
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp finely chopped chives
Smoked paprika, salt and pepper
Boil the eggs for approx. 12 minutes and remove. Immediately place in a bowl filled with ice-cold water and allow to cool for about one minute. Remove from the cold water and peel carefully so that the proteins remain intact.
Halve the eggs and remove the yolks. Put the egg yolks in a bowl with the remaining ingredients, except paprika, and puree with a hand blender. Pour the mixture into a piping bag with a large cake decoration and fill up the egg halves.
Garnish with paprika and serve!
Make your own delicious ideas for the Easter Fingerfood Buffet: Chicks cheese balls for dipping
Cheese balls are great party appetizer. This recipe, however, is a completely new interpretation of the usual cheesy idea. These cheese balls resemble cute yellow chicks. Perfect for Easter and almost too cute to eat!
These chicks are also real calorie bombs and should be enjoyed in moderation. You can spice them to taste strong or rather mild. You can also stir in bacon or coarsely chopped nuts of your choice and give your cheese balls more crack. Don’t forget to add enough bread or salty crackers for your guests to dipp with.
You will need the following ingredients for about 30 portions:
250g softened cream cheese
250g finely grated cheddar cheese, split into two
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
5 crispy fried and crumbled bacon strips
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts
finely chopped chives and parsley
2 teaspoons turmeric, 1/4 teaspoon oregano, pepper
To garnish: carrots for beak and feet, small black olives for eyes, halved crackers for wings
Mix all ingredients except one half cheddar well and leave to cool in the fridge for about an hour.
Form into a large ball or make smaller balls out of it and roll in the rest of the cheddar.
Carve beak, feet, eyes and wings and place on top.
Keep in the fridge until serving, then place on a large serving tray and spread crackers all around.
