Can I tell you a little secret?
When I’m entertaining, I like to shock my party guests a bit with the menu I serve.
If were having a casual get-together, like a sports event or yard party, I like to serve dishes that are a slightly more elegant than expected.
I do this for a few reasons…
One, when we have a dinner party, everyone always expects my food to be outrageously elegant because I cook for a living. They come over expecting to have to be on their best behavior. Serving casual dishes puts people as ease, and acts as a conversation starter.
Two, when we’re having a causal get-together, I get tired of the same ol’ chicken wings and cheese dip. Don’t you?
Three, giving people what they aren’t expecting, makes the event more memorable!
Bagels may not seem like a fancy food. Yet, I’ve discovered you can dress them up to fit any occasion.
These simple 5-Ingredient Bagel Bites with Steak and Blue Cheese walk the line of casual and elegant. They start with tender Thomas’ Mini Bagels that have been toasted to golden perfection.
Then I topped each half with a fresh basil leaf, grilled rib eye steak, and shards of pungent blue cheese.
I drizzled thick balsamic glaze over the top, so that each 5-Ingredient Bagel Bites with steak and blue cheese, is kissed with tangy sweetness.
Thomas’ Mini Bagels are fabulous for stacking all sorts of appetizers and party snacks. They are small enough to serve as a finger food, yet filling enough to satisfy your guests. (They are also the perfect size for kids!)
These 5-Ingredient Bagel Bites with Steak and Blue Cheese could be served as fancy food at our casual parties, or casual food at my dinner parties… Just to keep our friends guessing.
