Caprese Skewers

Our Caprese skewers live up to our client’s expectations with their bite-size appearance. This tiny set of mini tomatoes and mozzarella cheese is the perfect dish to whet your appetite for our main course.

Banana split bites

Banana splits aren’t just for dessert, they can also be the perfect candidate for appetizers here at Deli House Catering. The combination of pineapples, strawberries, chocolates and bananas is the perfect way to give yourself a treat before you dive into our delicious main dishes. 

Our banana split is a twist from your usual dessert with ice cream on top. For this appetizer, we excluded ice cream to give it a little twist from the traditional banana split dessert.

During its preparation, our chefs use the following ingredients:

  • Bananas
  • Cored Pineapple
  • Strawberries
  • Dipping Chocolate
  • Chopped Peanuts.

Upon serving, we cover the button of the ingredients with chocolate ganache and top it with chopped peanuts for extra crunchiness.

Spicy chicken meatballs

Caramel apple cream cheese

Bacon cheeseburger meatballs

  • Cheese
  • Hunk of bacon
  • Tomato 
  • Lettuce 
  • Pickle.

What makes this appetizer healthy and delicious is its baked patty which is different from the usual fried or grilled one. Upon serving, our chefs will top each patty with a slice of cheese and let it sit for a few minutes until it melts. 

Garlic bread

Fill your tummy with our oh-so-cheesy garlic bread that’s also great as a side or snack. During preparation, our chefs fill our garlic bread with garlic cloves, cheese with jalapeño peppers, red pepper flakes, chives and melted butter. 

To enhance the taste of the bread, we added more garlic cloves on top of the bread.
