Christmas Appetizers. They’re often overlooked by their bigger cousin, Christmas dinner. But these appetizers are an important part of any holiday gathering. You don’t need an excuse to go all out on eating and making appetizers, but something about the season just makes overindulging that much more fun.
It’s been a busy couple of weeks here for me, but busy with all good stuff! I haven’t been able to get any new recipes up lately, but over the next few weeks and into the new year, there will be tons of good new stuff coming your way…including my new obsession, mushroom pot pie with a puff pastry topping! Ahhh!! I think Santa is bringing your girl a professional camera this year so I’ll be able to up my photography game and add better pictures to my website.
In the meantime, here are delicious, tried and true vegetarian Christmas appetizers to bring to any holiday gathering.
What appetizers do YOU plan on cooking up this holiday season? I’m always looking for more ideas!
One of the Christmas classic recipes I grew up with is Liptauer cheese. It’s a paprika-infused cheese that you spread on crackers and it’s one of my all-time favorite appetizers. I’ve actually never made it myself (my mom or grandparents always made it). But one day I am going to create my own version and I’ll share my recipe with you once I do!
I always like serving a bit of a variety which is often hard for me. If it were up to me, I’d just serve 18 goat cheese appetizers because I love them so much! But having a mix of things with some fresh veggies, bread, cheese, and proteins is a nice way to make sure there’s something for everyone to enjoy. It also adds color to your spread and makes it all look more appealing.
