There are some rules to Party Food.

Not a lot, just a few. After all, parties are about lack of restrictions.  First, there needs to be a bit of portability involved. One hand, no utensils type of portability. If you’ve every tried to navigate the consumption of food that requires a knife and fork while trying to mingle, you understand the hard and fast nature of that rule.

You also need something low maintinace. Something you can set down and leave for your guests to grab, sans explanation.

Lastly (only three rules, after all, this is a party), you want something fairly quick and easy to put together. After all, you have other dishes to make, and dishes to wash, and people to mingle with.

But if you can work in beer, there are some bonus points involved.

  1. I adore party food. Despite the fact that it is usually harmful because it contains high calorized ingredients. It is always so tasty. This recipe is a nice idea for any party! I would like to eat a couple of such sandwiches.
