We all need easy recipes to help us get through the holidays. Here are AC’s top easy Christmas appetizer recipe articles! Thanks to all the Content Producers who shared their recipes with us, and good luck planning the menu for your own holiday parties!
Nicole Humphrey gives us Bacon Cheese Wheels, Cheesy Mushrooms, Hot Seafood Dip, Sausage Balls, and Bacon Tomato Bagel Melts. Lots of great ideas, and those mushrooms sure sound good!
Tommie Sandlin offers up easy recipes that can be made in advance, like Cheesy Spinach and Artichoke Dip, Shrimp and Cheese Stuffed Jalapeño Pepper Wrapped in Bacon, and Pickle Wraps. This is great for anyone who has a very busy holiday and needs to get things done ahead of time.
Morgan Burns suggests White Chocolate Snack Mix (and I’ve tried it – excellent!), Cream Cheese and Picante Dip, Deviled Eggs, and Chocolate Chunk Cookies. The deviled eggs can be a hit with everyone too – make some without the filling for your pickier guests.
Piper Poirot wrote an article for recipes to make ahead of time as well, featuring Cheddar Cookies, Cheese Balls, and Dill Dip with Rye Bread, which sounds wonderful to me!
Pendragon gives us party-specific recipes like Zucchini Hors D’oeuvres, Stuffed Dates, Bacon Wraps, Cantaloupe and Swiss Cheese Hors D’oeurves, and Chicken Roll Ups.
Kerrilyn Bachler-Connor suggested that before guests arrive you can make a Salmon cheese ball, Pecan and Olive Cracker or Pita spread, and Baked Brie. Lots of love for the cheeses here!
Louisa Burgess is kind enough to share her mom’s Stuffed Mushrooms recipe. She also details both crab and sausage stuffing. Make both, and you’re sure to satisfy all the people in the room, seafood lovers and meat lovers alike.
A new Content Producer, Trish Frederick, offers up her first AC article, featuring recipes for Melon and Prosciutto and Mini Pierogies. She guarantees that the melon and prosciutto will disappear off your plates!
Kathryn Mitschelen offers some appetizers that are manageable on a tight budget, even for a large party. Christmas tortilla wraps, Christmas Tree veggies and Dip, BLT Dip, and Italian Cheese and Sausage.
Michelle Miller offers more Christmas party recipes like Sausage Balls, Shrimp Cocktail, and Antipasto Platters.
Stacey Doyle bids us to KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid), with interesting recipes like Baby Christmas Meatballs, Quickie Piggies, Leftover Yuletide Garlic Biscuits, Sticky Cranberry Cereal Delight, and Santa’s Italian Cheese Sticks.
Our Content Producers have great ideas, and I hope you benefit from it! Happy holidays and have fun with the cooking!
