In our house, a lot or socializing happens in the fall. There are school functions, parent meetings, sports team events, and what have you. We’re the kind of eager cooks who will happily bring some kind of homemade snack to just about anything but we’re also total DIY nerds who love to keep the things we made seasonal so they really make everyone feel at home no matter what time of year it is. That’s why we’ve had our eyes peeled for fall finger foods lately!
Are you feeling just as interested as we are, if not more, in the idea of learning how to make new kinds of seasonal finger foods you’ve never tried before? Check out these 15 fantastic recipes, ideas, and flavour combinations that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance.
1. Caramel apple nachos
Besides being the parent who loves to cook and share what you’ve made, are you also totally that parent who is always sneaking healthy elements like fruit into otherwise treat-base snacks, just to show your kids how delicious eating nutritious things can be too? Then we we think you just might be the perfect person to give these mouthwatering caramel apple nachos outlined step by step on Lil’ Luna a try!
2. Spinach artichoke pinwheels
Just in case you’d prefer something savoury and perhaps a little closer to being an appetizer, since the event you’re taking snacks to is awkwardly timed right near a meal and you know people will be hungry, here’s a portable version of a classic flavour combination! Check out Yellow Bliss Road to learn more about how they made these satisfying spinach artichoke pinwheels.
3. Maple bacon butternut squash skewers
Like us, have you completely fallen in love with how hard the idea of putting maple bacon elements into just about anything you make is trending right now? Well, we make recipes based solely on the inclusion of the words “maple bacon” all the time, so we sure can’t say we blame you! Check out Bite Sized Kitchen to learn how one of our favourite of those dishes, maple bacon butternut squash skewers, were made.
4. Creamy pumpkin pie dip
Have we actually still got you thinking about how much you’d love to make a portable, shareable dessert rather than a savoury dish but you’re looking for a unique twist on a much more classic taste, since you’re always trying to learn new ways to prepare your favourite flavours? Well, if you love pumpkin pie even half as much as we do then we have a feeling you’ll also get a real kick out of this creamy pumpkin pie dip and cinnamon sugar pita dippers, all outlined for your convenience on Wine and Glue.
