I've been invited to one of my best friends xmas party's this weekend, and she has a new born, so I offered to help with the food.
It's for afternoon nibbles and she said that she can take care of the swete things, but could I prepare some savoury snacks. I have no idea what to make.
I have two little ones of my own and am time poor, so was thinking I'd take 3 different things. One of which would be mini quiches (I'll just buy them and heat them in her oven). Has anyone got any tasty / fast / easy sugestions???
I have gone through all my cook books and there is nothing in this area at all!

Buy premade tartlet shells from Coles/Woolies
Fill with a mix of chopped tomato/onion/basil and dress witha couple of drops of balsamic vinegar
Fill others with a small scoop of cream cheese and some smoked salmon
Fill others with some roast beef (just get some slices from the supermarket deli) and a small dollop of horseradish cream

I am making pulled pork sliders for dinner tonight. They are often served in the States as a savoury snack on dinner rolls, rather than a fullsized bun.
Basically you slow-cook a piece of pork for 8-10 hours till the meat pulls apart with forks and pile it on a roll. Easy and substantial.
Other options are your traditional heat and serve food from the frozen section of the supermarket or an antipasto platter.

A variety of dips with some biscuits, bread and veggie sticks.
Home made sausage rolls are easy, and always popular!

Chicken wings? Pizza scrolls, sausage rolls, antipasto plate (cold meats, cheeses, olives, pickled veg etc), vege muffins, sandwich platter, chips n dips, wraps cut into small portions, toasted Lebanese bread with hummus, spring rolls or other frozen dim sum type stuff.

Actually sandwiches are a great idea. Buy a pre-made chicken, make a chicken and mayo filling, get some good bread and voila.

My mum does up one which is quite simple really.
Basically you get mini won-ton wrappers, pop them into a mini cupcake tin & bake them in the over at 180 degrees for 10 minutes - or unti golden.
For the filling
Mash up 2 very ripe avocado's mix with the juice of half a lemon, 1/2 teaspoon of tabasco sauce & 1 finely diced spanish onion.
Add into the won-ton wrappers & top with a quarter of a cherry tomato
i think the wrappers come in a packet of 80 - it's quite a cost effective dish as well

So crass and very 70's but, what about little volovants? You can buy the little cases and all you would need to do is make a mournay filling. I wouldn't normally think of them but considering you don't have a lot of time yourself I would be combining part ready-made with part homemade.
- Cheats sausage rolls - puff pastry and little chipolata sausages. Grab a jar of chutney to serve
- Finger sandwiches. Use easy fillings like shaved roast beef from the deli, sundried tomatoes, rocket or baby spinach and a nice soft cheese like Camembert or Brie. Other fillings could include a finely chopped BBQ chook, whole egg mayo and cress or alfalfa
There's a few suggestions for you.
