Sesame Street Party | Food

Don't stop your theme when you get to food! Make your food a feature! The labels that my best friend made were what made the food shine! Here is what we did with the SS theme for our food.




The labels were inspired from Pinterest.
This was the pinspiration:








I'm going to share with you what our foods were, their cute Sesame Street (SS) names and then some recipes.

Cheese and Crackers:: Ernie's Cheese and Quakers
Fruit tray and Chocolate Carmel Dip:: Oscar's Quick Dip in the Mud
Pizza Bites:: Elmo's Pizza Bites
Goldfish Crackers:: Dorothy's Goldfish Snacks
Deviled Eggs:: Big Bird's Squishy Eggs
Little Smoky Roll-ups:: Bert's Mini Dogs
Vegetable tray:: Grover's Superhero Veggies and Dip
Cookies:: Cookie Monster's Milk and Cookies
Sweet Tea:: Zoey's Sweet Tea
Grape Drink:: Abbey's Magical Grape Potion

Most of those are intuitive.The pizza bites were my personal favorite. I had never had them before and they were made by my best friend Sabrina. So I'm going to be sharing with you how she made those. Everyone has their own way to make Deviled eggs, but I don't have a recipe to share for that.

Pizza Bites

Ingrediants::
  • 2 Tube of biscuits. If the tube makes 8 biscuits, it will make 16 pizza bites. Don't get the fancy kind. The store brand, not flaky work best.
  • Bag of Mozarella
  • Bag of mini pepperoni
We doubled the recipe for the party.

Steps::
  1. Get your kitchen scissors. Make sure they are clean. Cut each biscuit into fourths.
  2. After all biscuits are cut take 1/4th into your hand. Put a little cheese and a pep or two on it.
  3. Add another 1/4th to over that.
  4. Add more cheese and pep to the outside. Use your hand to mash it into a ball.
  5. Put bit into a cupcake well. 
  6. Repeat step 2-5 for another bite.
Once you have filled all 12 cupcake wells. Place in oven and cook at 350 for 8-9 minutes.
I know it is very technical. But I think you can manage.

These bites are good warm or cold. They are good plain or with a spaghetti sauce for dipping.

Berts mini dogs

The little smoky roll-ups are so easy they really dont need 'steps' You can do it two different ways. Both ways involve store bought crescent rolls. Then you can decide between hot dogs or little smokies.
If you choose little smokies, you need to cut each crescent roll triangle in half up the middle (see visual, example A) If you choose hot dogs you leave the roll like it came out of the package and you cut the hot dog in half (see visual, example B)


you can add cheese to either before you roll them up. They bake at 375 10-11 minutes until the roll is golden.

I personally find using the hot dogs to be more filling and a little easier to cut than the dough. We did not end up making these because we had so much other food so I don't have a party picture for them.
