50 Amazing Appetizer Recipes

50 Amazing Appetizer Recipes that are perfect for New Years Eve, Christmas or any large gathering. 

The holidays always get me thinking about appetizers.  I’m sure it has something to do with all of the fun parties we go to each season, but this is when I have a renewed appreciation for finger foods and miniature entrees.  Sweet or savory, there’s really nothing prettier than a bite-sized piece of gourmet party food!

I like to have a few recipes on hand that I can make up when we’re asked to bring food to a party, and that’s when dips come in handy.  Dips, spreads, and finger foods really are the way to go if you are hosting a New Year’s Eve celebration or another winter get together.  Take a look at the tasty tidbits I’ve line up in my holiday recipe files.
