New Year’s Party Question 1

By Sarah

Q. I’m having a New Year’s Eve Party at my home on Tybee Island, Ga. Just heavy appetizers. How many appetizers should I prepare?

A. First of all I want y’all to know that Sarah works for me. She does a great job organizing my schedule, but I guess she forgot to invite me to her party! Sarah, I always figure on 10 appetizer bites per person. The number of different appetizers you make depends on the size of your party. I like to use this rule.

Intimate Party (8-10 guests): Make 3 different appetizer choices
Small Party (11-16 guests): Make 4 to 5 different appetizer choices
Large Party (over 16): Make 6 different appetizer choices

I like to serve heartier appetizers such as The Lady and Son’s Chicken Fingers and Shane’s Sweet and Sour Meatballs when I host a party that will span over a mealtime. For parties that are held in the afternoon or evening after the dinner hour, you can offer more lighter appetizer choices, like Curry Dip and Homemade Salsa on the Fly.
