Delicious Appetizers For Your Next Holiday Party

Posted on

If you're hosting a holiday party, you'll likely need to hire a catering service to assemble an appetizer spread. Appetizers can be a great way to whet everyone's appetite and get the conversation flowing.

To help get you started, here are some delicious appetizer recipes perfect for your next holiday gathering.

Baked Brie With Pecans and Cranberry Sauce 

Baked brie with pecan and cranberry sauce is a delicious and crowd-pleasing appetizer perfect for your next holiday gathering. The combination of ooey-gooey melted cheese, crunchy pecans, and tart cranberry sauce creates a flavor explosion that will have everyone coming back for more.

To begin making this dish, your holiday catering service will carefully remove the top rind from the brie, then wrap it in pastry dough before baking until golden brown.

Once baked to perfection, they can add a layer of creamy cranberry sauce on top to give it an extra kick. A sprinkle of toasted pecans over the top can give it some added crunch and sweetness. Finally, the catering service may drizzle the meal with honey for some additional sweetness to give your guests a warm, gooey appetizer they won't be able to resist.

Baked brie with pecan and cranberry sauce is easy to make and can be prepped ahead of time, making it perfect for any holiday gathering or celebration. Your catering team can serve it alongside crackers or crudites vegetables as part of an elegant cheese platter or a stand-alone dish.

Sweet and Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Pineapple 

Sweet and spicy bacon-wrapped pineapple is the perfect appetizer for your next holiday gathering. This easy and delicious dish balances sweet and spicy flavors everyone can enjoy.

Your catering service can start by cutting the pineapple into small cubes, then wrapping each cube with bacon. The wrapped pineapple bites can be placed onto a baking sheet before being sprinkled with brown sugar and red chili flakes.

The bacon needs to bake in the oven until it's crispy and caramelized. Once the bacon-wrapped pineapple bites are finished baking, they can cool briefly before being served. The combination of sweet pineapples, salty bacon, and the hint of spice from the chili flakes makes for an irresistible appetizer.

Your catering service can serve this appetizer alongside other finger foods or as a stand-alone treat.

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus with Pita Chips 

Roasted red pepper hummus and pita chips are a classic appetizer combo that is sure to be a hit at your next holiday gathering. This flavor-packed dish combines creamy hummus with crunchy pita chips for an irresistible combination of textures and flavors.

Your holiday catering service can blend garlic, chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, and roasted red peppers until smooth and creamy. Once the hummus is ready, they can spread it onto a plate before topping it with fresh herbs, olive oil, and a pinch of smoked paprika. The hummus can be served alongside lightly toasted pita chips for added crunch and an easy dipper for your guests to use.
