Welcome to the holiday season! Parties, get-togethers, small crowds, large crowds…. this means food.
Holiday parties consist mostly of really good appetizers. The hardest part of planning a party or going to a party is deciding what appetizer I am going to carry. I want it to taste good, look good, and be eaten by others.
I also want to make appetizers that are fast and easy. During the holidays I am so busy with shopping, wrapping, working and running EVERYWHERE that I don’t have time to stop and create a five-hour appetizer. Who has time for that?
I have put together 17 of the Best Appetizers for the Holidays to help make your holidays a little less stressful. These are the best appetizers, they are family friendly, and the easiest appetizers around. Your guest and your family will love them.
These appetizers will be a huge hit no matter the occasion!
