Porcelain #4 Size Coffee Cone Filter Holder with only one hole!. This search was inspired by this post over at Super Eggplant. Granted, we use our over-the-cup drip maker for single cups and a #4 may be way too large. Maybe using #2 filters in the #4 cone will work out?

We’re having a “tiny food” party / BBQ, and I need menu suggestions. at Ask Metafilter. I will never tire of tiny foods.

    I just discovered that I have a terrible reaction to Orbit gum because of the sorbitol in it– the “Understanding health risks and rewards in what you eat and drink” link really caught my eye. Wish it had a slide on artificial sweeteners like sorbitol!

    I’m with you on the tiny foods! I think those mini pies you made a while back would be perfect. I made those for a party not long ago and they went over so well.

    Yum, Edamame Hummus! Kevin, my boyfriend, hates chickpeas so this could be a hummus saver for us!

    For mini stuff, a good suggestion is meat loaf cupcakes. It’s pretty much what it sounds like – meatloaf baked in muffin tins – but I’ve seen pretty ones that are topped with mashed potato and cooked peas on top to pull it all together and resemble a mini meatloaf dinner.

    Dawn, the meat loaf cupcakes sound AMAZING! What a clever idea.

    my favorite tiny food is Bombay Sliders from epicurious.com. I blogged them in their extra tininess here:

    or, if you’re going to go to the effort of making mini buns, any type of sandwich is doable. here I cut presliced cheese into quarters and used a round cookie cutter to make the sliced meats the right size:

    fyi – The sweetmarias coffee website you linked looks like a phishing site. If you google ‘sweet marias’ you get another site that doesn’t look so suspicious, they have a different shopping cart . I could very well be wrong — it could just be there old e-commerce site.
