You can never go wrong with cheese because it can go well with meat, fruit, wine – you name it! The great thing about using cheese in your hors d’oeuvre is that you don’t have to know any of those fancy recipes. Simply ask your caterer what kind of wine they’ll be serving then determine the type of cheese that will compliment it most.

As for the meat, you can go for roast beef, pork loin, smoked ham, smoked turkey breast, prosciutto, or salami. So much possibilities!

Best of all, it is perfect for guests who are a bit conscious with the food they eat.
Ricotta Cheese Crostini
Crostini is a type of Italian appetizer made from ciabatta bread that’s grilled or toasted, served with either meat, fruits and vegetables. Sometimes though this dish is only brushed with olive oil or a special sauce. The reason Ricotta cheese has become a staple crostini topping is because it’s slightly sweet in taste.
Common meat toppings are salami and prosciutto because the saltiness of the meat goes really well with the sweetness of ricotta cheese. Fruits that compliments the crostini are tomatoes, grapes, berries, and pears. Vegetable toppings can be peas (usually pureed) and butternut squash. You can add your favorite herbs as well.
Tuna-Apple on Toast
Now here is a light appetizer your guests can enjoy all throughout your glorious debut party. The tuna-apple toast is a superior variant of the usual tuna-apple sandwich that are the usual specialties of many coffee shops. Make sure that the tuna is creamy while the apple slices aren’t thick enough for the juice to ruin the tuna mix. Usually, havarti cheese, which has a rich buttery aroma, is used to give the dish a pinch of sweetness.
