10 Great Holiday Recipes: Appetizers

I’m hosting this Christmas Eve and I haven’t THOUGHT about anything yet. What am I doing for appetizers? Desserts? Drinks? EEK! There’s only a few days left. This is insane.

This morning, I went on a mad hunt for fun holiday recipes and decided to break it down into three posts. This post is all about holiday appetizers. Believe me, I’m trying to keep things simple! So, I chose easy appetizer recipes to post. See below:

Baked Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls

Veggie Cups

Winter Salad

Pears with Bleu Cheese and Arugula

Ricotta and Honey Bruschetta

Tomato, Feta, Thyme Tart

Cheese Appetizer

Tomato Tarts

Caramelized Onion and Apple Mini Tarts

Apple Crisp Baked Brie
