I love having some savoury nibbles in the freezer so that if friends pop in unexpectedly, of if they come for lunch and they're still there five hours later, it's so easy to pull some nibbles out of the freezer, pop them in the oven and you'll have freshly made finger food in no time (and no washing up!).
They also make a fantastic first course for a dinner party, so at least some of your preparations can be done in advance which makes the dinner much easier.
There's a chapter in FROST BITE dedicated to finger foods and canapes such as these Roasted capsicum and feta filo logs but I'm always on the lookout for new recipes so why not give these a try:
Proscuitto and pesto crescents from Claire K Creations
Fruit and nut crackers from Simple Bites which are ideal to serve with cheese
