Unlike many bachelorette parties, bachelor parties rarely consist of a formal meal, a potluck spread or home-baked goods. Rather, premade greasy food tends to be the norm, as it requires little prep time and complements beer. If you will be hosting a bachelor party, choose foods that taste good, are easy to eat and will keep all your guests full throughout the night.
Pizza is inexpensive and can feed a large amount of people. If you'll be ordering pizza, opt for the party size and request different toppings on different sections of the pizza. If you'll be eating at a restaurant, order several large pizzas, each with different toppings. Many pizza places also serve garlic bread, cheese sticks, french fries and Caesar salad as side dishes.
Jumbo Submarine Sandwich
You can make jumbo submarine sandwiches at home or order them from any submarine sandwich shop. If you'll be making them yourself, you'll need to custom order an extra large sandwich bun from a bakery as few bakeries have these readily available. You'll then need to purchase several packages of sliced cheeses and meats, lettuce and various vegetables and layer them on the sandwich. Try to keep one section of the sandwich fairly basic for the less adventurous. Then, cut it up into manageable pieces, or leave the sandwich on the table and let your guests cut their own pieces.
If the bachelor party will be held in a backyard, consider having a barbecue. The smell adds to the party atmosphere and the process of barbecuing lends itself well to male bonding. Examples of barbecued food include hamburgers, sausages, hot dogs, stakes, fish and shish kabobs. Ideas for side dishes include mashed potatoes, french fries, steamed vegetables, pasta salad, potato salad, coleslaw, beans and corn on the cob.
Finger foods are good for a bachelor party because they are easy to eat, allow for more variety in the food and allow snacking throughout the night while other activities are taking place. Place them on a buffet table stocked with plenty of plates and napkins. Finger food ideas include chicken wings, cheese balls, jalapeno poppers, mini corn dogs, pigs in a blanket, spring rolls, pizza bagels, crescent rolls and veggies with dip. You might also want to add potato chips, pretzels or nachos to the spread.
