12 Party-Ready Bites… On a Stick!

Item 1/1

[slideshow] Speaking of party planning, what’s the perfect party without a dozen bite-size goodies? Since you’ve likely put it together that we've got a weakness for obscure holidays, we’re pleased to let you know that tomorrow, March 28th, is Something On A Stick Day. What better way to celebrate such a ridiculous holiday than with 12 apropos recipes from all over the web?

1. Eggplant Lollipops: Lollipop lollipop oh lolli lollipop. Bet you never thought you’d see the words eggplant and lollipop in such close proximity. Think of it as a mini eggplant parmigiana, on a stick! (Recipe and photo: La receta de la felicidad

2. Elote On A Stick: Adapted from Matt Armendariz's aptly named snack cookbook, On A Stick, this colorful corn concoction is best fired up on the grill. (Recipe and photo: The Four Seasonings)

3. Pizza Pops: Pizza in pop form. Totally magical. We love the idea of adapting this recipe for your next pizza party, or for interactive hors d'oeuvres. This recipe is especially fun for kids! (Recipe and photo: The Decorated Cookie) 

4. Goat Cheese Pops with Herbs, Pecans, and Bacon: What looks like the saltiest marshmallow around is actually a sizable dollop of goat cheese. Creamy, delicious and covered with savory goodness. We recommend mixing it up and trying walnuts, dried cranberries, rosemary and a drizzle of honey for a sweeter mix. (Recipe and photo: Mom It Forward) 

5. Sesame Pumpkin Skewers: A great bite size move for the grill or the oven, all you do chop up some pumpkin, marinate in sesame seeds and a touch of sesame oil, skewer it up and cook! (Recipe and photo: JungleFrog Cooking) 

6. Lemongrass Chicken Skewers: Our second foray into skewers, we love the creative use of lemongrass as a stick in this recipe. For a veggie variety, replace the chicken with extra-firm tofu or tempeh. (Recipe and photo: Served With Love) 

7. Sweet Potato Samosa Pops: Now this is what we're talking about. What looks like a sweet pastry is actually a curry-filled pocket of deliciousness, straight from the subcontinent. (Recipe and photo: Veggie Belly) 

8. Raspberry, Mint & Mozzarella Skewers: A surprising and scrumptious combo, this skewer set screams summer.(Recipe and photo: Biscuits and Such) 

9. Cheese Lollipops: We can't help but giggle giddily at these savory lollipops. Sure, they're not traditional lollipops but they look so darling, and taste even better. We might have to try our hand at Latke Lollipops this holiday season. (Recipe and photo: Uno De Dos) 

10. Salad on a Stick: When that lonely salad of yours just isn't stacking up at the BBQ, put it on a stick! This works best with iceberg lettuce, but we recommend bundling up a few leaves of arugula and sneaking them in there as well. (Recipe and photo: The Food Network)

11. Mini Beer and Sausage Corn Dogs: What would a roundup of deliciousness on a stick be without Corn Dogs? Sort of an Eastern European take on an American classic, this recipe uses bratwurst or kielbasa covered in a beer-cornmeal batter. Beer-infused food? Yes please. (Recipe and photo: CHOW)

12. Crunchy Chicken Stuffed Waffle Pops: A close cousin of the sweet and savory Mini Chicken N' Waffles, this recipe makes use of a handy dandy waffle maker. What else could fill a waffle maker with and turn into a pop? (Recipe and photo: Snappy Gourmet)

As you can see, the possibilities for snacks on a stick are pretty endless. In fact, we found so many savory takes on the pop that we had to resist including any form of cake pop, Easter Egg Pop, or popsicle! Which recipe from this roundup is your favorite?
