I've a couple of teas/buffets to do over the festive period and was starting to think if there was anything I could do in advance and freeze ( and it occurred to me that others might be needing the same be it Christmas or New Year)

I've already identified little cheese scones (wonders if I could make some sort of pesto scone?) and there will be saus rolls and mince pies as well.

What else?

Little filo savouries - triangles with various fillings such as feta/spinach, curried veg, etc. They cook very well from frozen.

I always make a tray of the "tiny cheese, onion and olive scones" from the Delia Christmas book. They are delicious, and cook very well from frozen.

Cheese straws freeze well before baking, I haven't tried after, but as they're just puff pastry and cheese, I can't see why not.

Circles of puff pasty with different stuff in the middle - salmon, cheese etc.
Or, small pizzas.

A variation on these is to use feta cheese and garlicy sundried tomatos, they are rather moreish

I make little mini pizzas with a savoury scone base topped with a little tom sauce, bacon, cheese etc... anything goes really

I also make cheese scones and top them with cream cheese and a sprinkling of chives when defrosted, blinis freeze well and can just be assembled, pesto pinwheels look good and freeze well too (I will try and root out the recipe) - marinaded chicken mini kebabs can be cooked assembled and frozen too

Bagpuss had a party food thread some where from a few months ago here
