Summer is almost over and Fall is upon us, and if you are planning a backyard bash to get the season started off right, then you need to be thinking about the right appetizers. We’re going to take a look at some favorites that can keep guests satisfied until the main event without detracting from the meal itself. Here’s our list of the best appetizers for your 2019 Summer is almost over Party!

Hot Appetizers:

Pulled Turkey Sliders: Instead of serving mini hamburgers, get festive with pulled turkey sliders. Add some slaw to complete this mouthwatering appetizer.

Chicken Skewers: Nothing quite screams summer like eating meat from a stick. Add a tasty dipping sauce, and you have a sure crowd pleaser.

Turkish Spiced Meatballs with Pomegranate Yogurt Sauce: These Turkish meatballs are so juicy, light, and flavorful—not to mention easy—they’ll be the star of any cocktail party at which they make an appearance.

Sesame Chicken Drumettes: Serve these saucy chicken drumettes with plenty of napkins.

Figs-in-a-Blanket with Goat Cheese: Spicy, honey-glazed figs and creamy goat cheese are baked in puff pastry in this fun vegetarian play on pigs-in-a-blanket.

Goat Cheese Croquettes With Spiced Membrillo: We’ll be spreading Membrillo (quince paste) inside bread for grilled cheese from now on.

Carrot Tart with Ricotta and Almond Filling: Arranging the carrots in a geometric pattern transforms this savory tart into a truly show-stopping appetizer.

Cold Appetizers:

Caprese Skewers – A summer twist on a Mediterranean favorite. Tomatoes, mozzarella, and pesto on a stick provide a great vegetarian alternative to meat skewers.

Sushi – Fresh seafood, wasabi, pickled ginger, and soy sauce. It’s the perfect combination of upscale ingredients to greet guests with.

Tuna & Apple Crostini: This lovely, sophisticated take on an open-face tuna sandwich includes sliced tart green apple and a little parsley. Try it with a sparkling rosé..

Pickled Shrimp and Cucumbers Spears: The shrimp and cucumbers need to marinate overnight, so plan accordingly

Fennel, Apple and Avocado Crudo: Pink peppercorns (no relation to the black or white variety) are slightly spicy but fruity, with a mild citrus taste. Here, they flavor the salt sprinkled on a super easy vegetable crudo.

If your mouth started watering as you read the descriptions of these appetizers, just imagine how your guests will feel. The best part is – you don’t have to prepare or cook any of it! Superior Catering offers a wide array of both hot and cold appetizers to meet your backyard party needs.
