Keviniscooking has you covered for this New Years Eve with plenty of party appetizers. I’ve put together a group of some of my favorite and most popular party appetizer foods for some New Years Eve celebrations! Many can be made quickly with pantry items you already have. Check them out!
Call these breadsticks or twists, my Bacon Puff Pastry Cheese Twists are sweet, savory, crunchy and another perfect handheld appetizer for any party.
This easy, cheesy, creamy Feta Spinach Stuffed French Bread is deliriously rich and tasty. It reminds me of a Greek spanakopita, but all stuffed inside a wonderful loaf of sourdough bread. Sliced, it’s a perfect appetizer for parties.
Talk about complex and multi-layered flavors, these Cheddar Bacon Jam Puff Pastry Bites are made with bacon, onions, figs and a variety of other ingredients that make up the perfect, handheld appetizer.
When it comes to snacking and dips, I must say that hummus is my go to for being healthy, filling and versatile. I like to spice mine up a bit and this Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus is a kicker in flavor.
I’ve got a great appetizer dip that sometimes finds it’s way on top of french fries, baked potatoes and steamed vegetables. This scratch made Beef Queso Dip is a kicker and one I find myself making often it’s so easy.
These Baja Yellowtail Tostadas may be small, bite size appetizers, but the flavor is big time and out of this world good.
Ever go to a Mexican restaurant and have those pickled, spicy carrots? Well I think I have a great make-it-at-home version that has us eating these like mad! Perfect to snack on and a great appetizer
These Garlic Chili Edamame are an easy to prepare snack that can be on the table in 10 minutes from start to finish.
What’s better than a Sloppy Joe sandwich when you’re in the mood for a little childhood memory and comfort food all rolled into one? These Chipotle Sloppy Joe Flatbreads are my updated version and served flatbread style.
This Honey Glazed Crispy Pork Belly is roasted and crunchy on the outside, fork tender on the inside, with a basting of honey to contrast the Spanish dry rub spices. Meat candy right here people. Delish.
A fantastic, easy and delicious pull apart bread that’s great for the family, when entertaining guests and is perfect to bring along on a picnic or beach outing. This Pull Apart Cheesy Pesto Bread with Salami went over BIG time the other evening. How could they resist, right?
Start with puff pastry, a coating of maple syrup and a sprinkle of brown sugar. Scatter some shredded sharp cheddar cheese, then rendered pancetta on top of that and repeat. Then bake. Deliciousness just happened.
These smoky, nutty pecans coated with a delicious and exotic mixture of spices will soon become your new snacking addiction!
These chickpeas get roasted after tossed with oil and a spice blend. I make my Turkish Roasted Chickpeas spice blend from some beautifully aromatic spices that include toasted cumin, black and pink peppercorns, oregano and Turkish bay leaf, sweet paprika, cayenne pepper and sumac.
Super easy and a flavor bonanza, this Roasted Garlic, Spinach and Artichoke Dip is a party classic dip.
These Buffalo Chicken Meatballs get a crunchy exterior from Panko breadcrumbs and are drizzled with a bleu cheese dressing with hot sauce. Skewered with celery to serve as appetizers.
These crunchy, buttery, puff pastry breadsticks are twisted and layered with all sorts of goodies. From a wonderful Lemon Cashew Pesto I made (or use regular pesto of choice), to salty, crispy rendered pancetta and then a generous dusting of black pepper.
Who wouldn’t want a couple of these Green Chili Chicken Mac and Cheese Muffins? Mac & Cheese mixed with a green chili chicken mixture with red peppers all covered with a crunchy breadcrumb and parmesan cheese topping.
And one last tasty flatbread that can be cut into smaller pies for that tasty hand held appetizer. This Greek Lamb, Chickpea and Feta Tart is one of those meals that comes together in 30 minutes and looks like you spent a lot of time making it. Instead of using the traditional phyllo dough I opted for what I had on hand and used a puff pastry. Supremely delicious!
