Full Buffet Of Oscar Party Appetizers

The Oscars are right around the corner and if you’re anything like me, you’re relishing this prime opportunity to throw a party. I LOVE throwing parties because 1) it forces me to clean my house better than my normal spit shine, 2) I get to see all my friends and hang out doing something fun and 3) most important, I get to replace dinner with appetizers!

Oscar Party Appetizers

Like Cher’s character in Mermaids, in my ideal world every meal would be made up of finger foods. So, with the image of awards night dancing in my head, I went on the search for a full buffet of appetizer recipes that would impress my guests as much as Cate Blanchett in a Giorgio Armana sheath dress. Here is my menu of Oscar party appetizers.

Filet Mignon definitely says “fancy.” Throw in a little bernaise sauce and your guests might start to wonder if they are underdressed for your party. That is why these Filet Mignon Bacon Bites with Bernaise Sauce from Frugal Coupon Living are on my menu for Oscar night.

Of course, not everyone is a red-meat lover so you’ll want an equally impressive chicken option. I love these Chicken Artichoke Bites from Home. Made. Interest.

 If you want a lighter option for your clean eating friends, you could also serve the Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce from Simply Stacie. Are you drooling all over your keyboard like I am?

As long as we’re offering options, we should include some seafood offerings for our honored guests. I love this baked version of my favorite Chinese restaurant appetizer. Thanks to Newlywed Survival for this delicious Baked Shrimp Rangoon recipe.

If you’re more of a crab lover though, you might want to try these Quick n’ Easy Crab Ball Appetizers from Home. Made. Interest.

And let’s not forget our vegetarian friends! They’re sure to enjoy these Veggie Blossoms from Tastes of Lizzy T’s.

These delectable Spinach Feta Pie Bites from Organized 31 will be popular with everyone at the party since they’re flavorful, bite-sized, and healthy!

I’m personally looking forward to making these Cauliflower Bites from Simply Stacie. Much fancier and healthier than buttered popcorn!

If, like me, you want to add some variety of visual appeal in addition to flavor, you’ll want to be sure to include these triangular Southwest Wontons with Chipotle Lime Dipping Sauce from 2 Sisters 2 Cities.

Finally, if you have any kids coming along with mom and dad to watch the Oscars, you’ll want to have some kid-friendly options as well. They will definitely like these Pizza Puff Appetizers from Confessions of an Overworked Mom.

And though I came up with this recipe because of my personal love of BLT sandwiches, they have been a big hit with the kids so they are on my menu for Oscar night too. Trust me, your kids will gobble up these BLT Appetizer Cups.
