Finger-Food Combination Generator Makes 500 Party Snacks

Finger foods are great for Christmas parties, and the varieties you can make are almost endless. All you need are three ingredients: a base, spread and garnish. Mark Bittman’s finger-food combination generator is like a flowchart for foodies, and suggests hundreds of possibilities.

For the base, consider not just crunchy bread or pita chips, but also veggies that make great containers, like celery sticks. Add a spread (the “glue”) for the main flavour, such as hummus or pesto. Then, finally a garnish for added flavour and texture: minced bacon, perhaps, or nuts. Voila! Hors d’oeuvres for entertaining.
