5 Quick and Easy Holiday Appetizer Recipes

December 11, 2014

Appetizers can begin a holiday party, or play a supporting role to the entertainment. We love the holidays as a reason to make all the fancy bits that only come out when it's time to party! These appetizers are all delicious as well as quick and easy. Check it out!

Easy Baked Rice Balls

From Hungry Couple NYC

Baked rice balls (often called Arancini,) are a delightful treat for a party. Finger food that is crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside. These are fun to make and so tasty to nibble. 

Mushroom, Herb and Gruyere Cheese Mini Turnovers

By Blog.kj

Flaky crust, filling that is mushroom and herbs in Gruyere cheese; these are an appetizer that may not even make it to the table. They are upscale yet quick and easy to make. We love them!

Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip with California Raisins

From Sweet Cayenne

We especially love dips for parties. It takes the fussiness out of preparation, and often means serving more people overall because they can serve themselves and easily take just what they want. How about a pumpkin Cheesecake dip with sweet golden raisins? We thought you would love it. 

Prosciutto and Mozzarella Skewers

From Becoming Ness

This colorful appetizer is truly quick and easy, and the festive colors are perfect for a holiday table. Get the little chefs involved and make it a family effort. 

Ginger Steak and Brie Sliders

From Half Baked Harvest

Saving the most savory for last, aren't these beautifully delicious looking? We love sliders in any fashion, but these go above and beyond a regular mini burger. They are stuffed with steak and melted Brie, covered with delightful balsamic cranberry sauce, and every bite is heaven.
