Every Starter Platter Recipe You Need to Savour a Summer of Sport

A long marathon of summer sports calls for a truck-load of fun snacks.

Long marathons of watching summer sports on TV call for crowd-friendly snacks. Throw in a cold beer or cocktail and you've got yourself a party. Bite-sized, hand-held and perfectly portable, our recipes for the perfect starters are fun, easy and save on things like washing up.

If you're a die-hard burger fan, this nifty shortcut for making lots all at once will leave you pining for your next fix. With these All-American Beef Sliders you simply bake the burger mixture on a flat baking tray, add your burger toppings and melt. When you're ready to serve, grab the fluffiest buns you can find and slice the baked burger patties up. Your friends and family can build their own and add all their favourite extras.

If burgers aren't your thing but you have a burning desire for pizza, you have to try these mini Portobello Pizzas which trade in bread for juicy, flat mushrooms. Add your favourite toppings and slice into little pieces.

Of course, no summer party with friends would be complete without a big sharing platter of Shoestring Fries to nibble on.

Call your friends, turn on the telly and lay on a snackable spread to keep your hunger at bay during this summer of sport.
