Cheese Finger Food Fun - Cheese Appetizers Perfect for Showers!

Bite-sized Foods with Cheese are the perfect fare for baby and wedding showers and parties!

The best finger foods take a few quality ingredients and combine them into a memorable meal or snack. With Ile de France Cheeses, it's easy to make even the simplest combinations memorably flavorful. Here are two simple shower finger food ideas and five new recipes featuring the best of Ile de France Cheeses.

These finger-food recipes are perfect for baby showers and work as easy gourmet appetizers.

Blue cheese, fruit and honey
Setting up a fruit tray with cantaloupe, peaches, watermelon and pineapples can easily become a culinary delight. Add some honey and include a hearty portion of Ile de France Roquefort and sliced baguette. The Roquefort's luxurious texture can easily be spread on fruit and bread. Its pungent aroma and defining greenish blue veins hold a robust flavor profile that salty and satisfying – and a perfect complement to sweet fruits and honey.

Mini potatoes with Ile de France Brie Cheese with Herbs of Provence
Our new Brie with Herbs of Provence makes for especially interesting wedding and baby shower foods. Try cutting small baked red potatoes in half and scooping out some of the inside and replacing it with the Brie with Herbs. The smooth cheese will melt into the potato while the herbs add an exhilarating flavor. Our Brie features hints of mushroom and nutty flavors along with a smooth, creamy texture that's perfect food for baby shower gatherings.

Hi tlsandeno, thanks for commenting!

Here are some recipes for desserts that would match the nautical theme of your party-

Chocolate Glazed St. Andre:

Spring Berry Fruit Bowl:

Cheese Stuffed Tomatoes:

This is a cute idea to try: Take a wheel of brie and cut a hole in the middle. Smear red jam of choice in four stripes equally spaced to make into a lifesaver!

Do let us know what you plan to serve and how it went!

Cookie cutters are awesome! Most parties have too much junk food. If you're a concerned mother like me make pre-schoolers favorite food cute by using cookie cutters. I make shapes out of white and orange American cheese slices using cookie cutters. Sandwiches too are cute with cookie cutters. Most kids don't like the crust and they will gobble up Pb&J and turkey cut into shapes. They also LOVE grapes and strawberries. It doesn't have to be too fancy. Then they can have a "make your own sundae" dessert bar after they have eaten their healthy food! Good luck!
