    Default Birthday food ideas.

    Hi everyone, I am throwing a surprise 50th for my mum and to save money we are making the food ourselves. I'm not the best cook so I would love some ideas!
    The crowd will be fairly bogan too so not so much into fancy foods lol

    How about roast beef or lamb and gravy rolls and then some salad platters? Or get some slow cookers and do pulled pork rolls. Or you could do lasagne (just make them in advance in the disposable trays and freeze then defrost and reheat on the night) you could do some vegetarian and some meat and salad platters. Would you want to do some finger food as well? If so, I'd do some cob loaf dips or just some dip platters.

    Cold meat platters, salads, quiches. Spit roast is always a winner!

    Sounds great! In that case, I would try and have all food prepped and ready to go before it starts, so you can enjoy the party too. A mix of cold and hot, savoury and sweet. I would avoid anything that needs cutlery- finger food is great- you can have nice napkins, paper plates if you like, and some decorations. Some food ideas (not all home made)- party pies, mini quiche, mini sausages pre cooked and held on warm in the oven (serve on mini buns with sauce), meatballs. Cold- have some platters pre-prepared in the fridge- prawn on bread, smoked salmon on mini pancake or on bread, boconcino, basil and tomato toothpicks, mini lettuce leaf filled with tuna, coriander and spring onions. Sweet- birthday cake,some nice slices, berries for garnish. Enjoy.
