What Are Finger Foods

Finger food is food meant to be eaten directly using the hands, in contrast to food eaten with a knife and fork, spoon, chopsticks, or other utensils.
Commonly, finger foods are often either appetizers (hors d’œuvres) or entree/main course

Popular Finger Food Examples

Although most of these are available in the frozen foods section of your local supermarket, making your own with unique flavours will impress everyone.

Examples of generally accepted and common finger foods are;

  • Miniature meat pies.
  • Sausage rolls.
  • Sausages on sticks.
  • Cheese and olives on sticks.
  • Chicken drumsticks or wings.
  • Spring rolls.

It is interesting how “finger food” is used frequently in some cultures, but is frowned upon in others.
For example, around family you can use your hands to dip a chunk of bread into the pasta sauce, but if you were in a fancy restaurant it would not be as appropriate.
