Other App Ideas Needed (Beyond ABTs)

gmacgmac Posts: 1,574
I am doing an evening for my wife and her friends and I'm looking for appetizer ideas that can be done on the egg.  I've done ABTs many times but I'm wondering if anyone has any good appetizer ideas that would be good for this evening.  It's gonna be 10 or 12 ladies so I don't think they are going to want overly fatty, overly spicy things (I know a few of them are pretty picky so I can say that with confidence).  I figured I'd do some thin crust pizza but I'm sure that there are lots of good things I'm missing.  
Any advice would be welcome.
Thanks

    What about Green Lightning Shrimp? 

    They are easy and super-duper delicious. I don't think they are spicy, but you can always use less jalapeños or a sweet pepper instead of jalapeños if you think it might be too spicy for them.

    Do something fancy...

    Grill some romaine and top it with blue cheese chunks and thin slices of good steak.

    Or do some sesame crusted seared tuna sliced thin...

    grilled pineapple rings soaked in rum first and then hit with DP Pineapple Head rub. 325 direct to slight char.

    another is bacon wrapped pickled watermelon rinds - very tasty and not too heavy.

    Grilled fruit is always a winner
  • gmacgmac Posts: 1,574
    Great ideas.  Keep em coming.  Loving the shrimp and tuna idea, never knew you could cook watermelon rind (I've heard of pickling it but never grilling it).  Already do grilled pineapple or other fruits a lot for desserts with the kids.  Grilled pineapple ring covered in brown sugar and topped with vanilla ice cream is great.  Or cut peaches in a cast iron pan ladled over ice cream.  I want to do some desserts so maybe that will be an idea.

    I should mention I'm also doing asian lettuce wraps, panko fish nuggets, pulled pork sliders (doing the pork on the egg a couple days ahead and re-heating).  
    The idea was to just keep feeding them drinks and appetizers all night (doing this since she let me go fly fishing for a week...)

  • Pig shots always seem to be a hit, and not too spicy--especially with brown sugar based topping.

  • I do Grilled stuffed mushrooms when we have friends over. My wife loves them. Here is the link to the recipe. I add a little more cottage cheese and coat the mushrooms in some dizzy pig Tsunami Spin before I stuff them.

    Just bumping this.  
    After consulting with the hostess, we will be doing the shrimp, pulled pork sliders and some egged pizza.  
    I'm also open to non-egg ideas as long as that's not too blasphemous.

    I have two appetizers I like to make.

    Stuffed mushrooms with borsin and sharp cheddar topped with some butt rub.

    Brie smoked on a cedar plank. Top with some cherry preserves. So good!
  • robnybbqrobnybbq Posts: 1,907
    Pigshots are a great appetizer as well.
