If you’re planning to host a dinner party, there are certain types of food that can especially stand out to your guests. Serving the right food can make your whole party more enjoyable for everyone and create a memorable event. Any of these four food suggestions that will likely be a hit at your next dinner party.
1. Parmesan Garlic Spaghetti
This dish will be especially good if you plan to have guests at your event who are vegetarians. Classic spaghetti or linguine noodles can be used for the dish along with some garlic cloves and fresh-leaf parsley. Grated parmesan cheese and unsalted melted butter can be added to give this dish its distinct and appetizing appeal. For additional flavor, try adding some red pepper flakes. This is a classic dish that appeals to a variety of taste buds. It takes little effort, can be quickly made in large batches, and is a good option if you’re entertaining on a budget.
2. Chicken Burgers
Almost everyone loves a good chicken sandwich, and feeding your guests hearty chicken burgers will help keep everyone full and satisfied. You can use either fried or grilled chicken breasts along with fresh kaiser buns for the sandwiches. Optional lettuce, tomato, and avocado toppings can make great additions. You’ll also want to have plenty of mayo or other sauces for the sandwiches. This can be a more elevated take on classic hamburgers for a casual dinner party.
3. Filet Mignon
For something on the fancier side, filet mignon is sure to impress your most discernible guests. Even though you might think that filet mignon is difficult to prepare, you can make this dish with some beef tenderloin steaks that you get at the butcher or supermarket. You don’t even need a slow cooker or stew pot to cook filet mignon and can instead use grilling, pan-frying or other direct-heat cooking methods to cook the meat fast so that it’s ready on time for the event. Mushroom wine sauce can also be added to enhance the flavor. This can be a more pricey option, but it is one that is sure to be a hit.
Popular in bars and movie theaters, nachos can also be appetizing for your dinner party guests. You can set up a nacho bar that includes fresh tortilla chips, sour cream, and guacamole and have guests help themselves. Jalapenos and green peppers will make the nachos even more appetizing. Meat options can include seasoned chicken or beef. Red salsa that’s mild, medium or hot in intensity will add further spice to the nachos. This will create opportunities for more socialization as well. It will allow your guests to freely move around during the dinner party and eat as they please. Nachos are a great option for casual and social parties.
Your next dinner party is sure to be a success if you serve the right food. These food options can get all guests talking for the right reasons and will help make any dinner party an event that’s worth remembering.
