Kids' Birthday Party

Apart from preparing the birthday cake, setting up a kids' birthday party might be sometimes quite complicated. There are classic resources, such as sandwiches and crisps, but if you want to make this one an special one to remember, our suggestion would be to arrange a typical Spanish celebration with tapas, of course!

The recipes presented here can be served one by one, but I would advise you to prepare them in advance, and serve them at once. It will allow you to enjoy the party!

Our suggested recipes for this occasion would be the following:

  • Stuffed Tomatoes tapas: This one is a simple recipe, very handy when preparing a barbeque or a picnic party. Tomatoes here are used as a container for a delicious Spanish stuffing.
  • Ensaladilla Rusa (Spanish Potato Salad): This is a popular tapa recipe, made of vegetables and mayonnaise...
  • Spanish omelette: This is THE tapa! There is nothing more typical than a Spanish omelette!
  • Spanish Ham Croquettes: Croquetas are a common sight on bar counters and in homes across Spain, served as a tapa, light lunch, or a dinner along with a salad. The jamon serrano in this recipe could be replaced with chopped hard-boiled eggs, shredded salt cod, minced shrimp, chopped chorizo, cheese, or just about any vegetable.
  • Prawn croquettes: Croquetas are ubiquitous in Spain, although they most likely originate from the French 'croquettes'. Their beauty lies in the bechamel base which is then mixed with your particular ingredient of choice to give it a characteristic flavor. The possibilities are almost endless - here we have used prawns.
  • Empanadas: Empanadas, bread pies stuffed with shellfish, fish or meats, are iconic of Galician cuisine. The crusts and fillings vary from place to place, and nearly every Galician family, restaurant, and tavern claims to have the secret formula for making the best version. Of the many empanadas I have tasted in this beautiful northwestern region, these ones are my favorites - their crust is consistently delicate and delicious.
  • Pinchitos Morunos: Small Spicy Moorish Kebabs Europe's first kebabs were brought by the Arabs from Africa. Pinchitos morunos are eaten everywhere in Spain as a tapa, though nowadays they are made of pork, rather than lamb.

As well as this recipes, it is a good idea to present as well some dishes of sliced Spanish ham and manchego cheese and some Pa amb oli to go with.

As for the drinks, you can prepare some non-alcoholic sangria.

Happy Birthday!
