These Party Appetizers are Perfect for Your New Year’s Shindig
The holidays are known for the endless sweet treats and savory centerpieces, but that doesn’t mean your guests wouldn’t love a few tasty party appetizers — particularly if you’re planning a New Year’s Eve bash. (You’ll notice a lot of these recipes use bacon, because pre-resolutions, you have to #TreatYoSelf.)
Here’s what to serve this New Year’s Eve — or any other day that calls for delicious party appetizers, really:
Filet Mignon Sliders with Black Cherry Sauce
Brie and an easy-to-make black cherry sauce make these mini-burgers juicy and oh-so-snackable.
Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus or Baked Asparagus Fries
Whether you opt for asparagus lovingly wrapped in savory prosciutto or are more keen to try the light, bright, baked asparagus fries from Damn Delicious, one thing’s for sure — your guests will love either. (We say go for both!)
Crab Cake Sliders
Miniature crab cakes, plus a roasted red pepper aioli? If that’s not the perfect finger food, we don’t know what is.
Easy White Wine Fondue
Swiss. Gouda. White Wine. Add it all up and you’ve got us tweeting #FondueForever thanks to this awesome recipe for White Wine Fondue from The Cookie Rookie.
Baked Goat Cheese Cranberry Appetizer
Grab some crackers to give your guests something to dip with — otherwise, they might want to swim in this warm, creamy, and subtly sweet goat cheese appetizer from Honey and Birch. (Seriously, you might want to make more than one batch.)
Jumbo Bacon-Wrapped Scallops
How do you take a delicate scallop to the next level? Wrap it in crisp bacon, obviously. (Then, you know, give it a little maple sugar glaze and make it easy to make.)
Loaded Baked Potato Rounds
When the words “loaded” and “potato” come together, you know it’s going to be magical — just like it is in this recipe from Pip and Ebby.
Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignon Tips with Maytag Cheese
Bacon again? You better believe it! This time, wrapped around tender filet mignon and Maytag blue cheese.
Classic Stuffed Mushrooms
A fan-favorite for a reason, these stuffed mushrooms from Peas and Crayons boast some real garlicky goodness and are simple to make, too.
