The holidays are all about indulging in what you like and not feeling guilty about it afterward (most of the time). When family and friends are gathered, it’s what the season is all about! So of course, when the guests arrive at your home this year for the holiday party, you want to wow them with those apps. So if you’re in search of a few unforgettable holiday appetizers, here are five that should go straight to top of your app list.
Need we say more? This is a super simple and easy to create. Whip up your favourite stuffing dish and combine it together with some pork. Add a few holiday seasonings and pepper. Roll them into balls and then pop them in the oven until cooked. For an extra bonus, you can roll them in breadcrumbs to get the extra bit of deliciousness.
Turkey Dinner Grilled Cheese
This is the perfect appetizer that is hearty enough to really satisfy your guests. It combines all of the goodness of Christmas dinner in a bundle of grilled cheese goodness. Include sliced turkey, stuffing, a touch of cranberry sauce, and of course, some of your favourite cheese. Grill it up between bread and your guests will be melting as they dive into these.
Roasted Tomato and Goat Cheese Flatbread
Who doesn’t love flatbread? It’s like your own version of a pizza! Season your flatbread and add some roasted tomatoes, topped with goat cheese, onion, garlic, and any other topping that you enjoy. Bake it in the oven until golden and it’s ready to be served.
Cherry Pecan Baked Brie
Think of all the goodness of baked brie, added with the sweet, tartness of cherries and the crunchiness of pecans. This is super simple and takes about 10 minutes to make. You can bake the brie or leave as is. Add some cherries and a little sugar into a pot and simmer until they have just begun to melt. At this point you can add in some pecans, or toast them separately, and then top the brie off with both for one tasty sweet treat.
Salmon Sesame Croquettes
If you’re looking to add a touch of nutrition to the app table, this is the perfect dish to make. Combine salmon, sesame, and ginger. Roll up into a ball and cover with tempura. Bake until crispy.
Take your appetizer game up a few notches by incorporating some of these dishes to the table. And just be sure that you make enough, because you can bet that your family and friends will be coming back for more!
