Antipasti and Appetizers – great starters, or a whole meal!
At Fantastico Italian Gourmet, we’re continually adding new antipasti and appetizers to our list. Here are a few ideas to start you thinking. We also have wings, pot stickers, and more. Perfect for special events or party food. If you have a favorite that you don’t see here, contact us and we’ll be happy to whip up a few special antipasti and appetizers just for you!
Arancini are “little oranges” made from rice and cheese and more. But the “more” – the spices, seasonings, and other ingredients – will remain a Fantastico Italian Gourmet secret! Lightly deep fried, they can be more than appetizers and antipasti. They’re perfect as a side order served hot and crispy with a great dinner. They’re a fantastic party food as well!
Bruschetta is a special Italian-style bread layered with an almost unlimited choice of spreads and toppings. Delight in Nonna’s roasted pepper recipe. Or choose artichoke or olive spread, or traditional tomato. Or design your own. Specify your favorite spread. Pick your preferred veggies. Bruschetta is the most versatile of all appetizers and antipasti.
Angel Hair Frittata
Frittata is another of Fantastico Italian Gourmet’s appetizers and antipasti that can serve as a main course. It makes a delicious brunch, a fantastic lunch, or a perfect starter treat for a wonderful dinner. Frittata is a lot like an omelette, or a quiche without the crust. Ingredients include pasta, tasty cheeses, and your favorite veggies.
Piccolini (little ones) – an olive; plus salami or prosciutto, or your choice of another meat; plus mozzarella or your choice of another cheese; on a long, easy-to-handle toothpick. We’ll customize them to your taste. A very popular starter for a formal dinner inside or out, or as a snack for an informal get-together. A big hit at a recent pool party.
Italian Deviled Eggs
Italian Deviled Eggs are a tasty change from regular deviled eggs. We mix the yolks with tuna that we’ve marinated in olive oil, add an olive on top, plus an anchovy if you want a Sicilian twist, or – if you prefer – a bite of tasty prosciutto.
This antipasti has chunks of fresh parmesan, delicious mozzarella, green and black olives, artichoke hearts, roasted peppers, Italian deli meats and thick slices of fresh tomato, all kicked up to a higher level with a reduced balsamic vinegar glaze.
