Collage of New Years Eve appetizer recipes.

Apps Only for NYE!

For years, our New Year’s Eve traditions have included all things bite-size. And by that, I mean a killer variety of delicious appetizers!

Why we love appetizers:

  • Easy. Many of these apps come together quickly or can be made ahead of time!
  • All night long. We love to have a big spread to munch on throughout the evening, whether we ring in the new year at nine or midnight!
  • Variety. Everything from meat pops to dips, to decadent desserts adorn our table.

Healthy options. Snackers are searching for healthier options. Try snacks that are high in protein, plant-based, or gluten-free like our favorite low-carb recipes: Greek Cucumber Cups, Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Caprese Kabobs, and Deviled Eggs.

Be bold. Use bold flavors that excite! Say yes to finger foods with bold tastes including Korean, Indian, and Mexican-inspired flavors like Corn Dip, Cream Cheese Salsa Dip, and Mexican Pinwheels.

Charcuterie boards. One other food trend is artful and inventive Charcuterie Boards – check out our beautiful Burrata Board!

Party Tips

  • Label any foods that you have specifically made dairy-free, gluten-free, or nut-free.
  • Keep appetizers warm with crock pots (set on low), chafing dishes, or small electric heating pads placed under trays.
  • Keep appetizers cold. Place ice in the bottom of a bowl with a slightly smaller bowl to fill with food nestled on top. Place serving bowls in the freezer before filling them with food. Only place out enough dip that can be eaten within the hour. Refill with extra as needed.
