New Year’s Eve is around the corner, and we’re ready to ring in 2020 with a fun, festive gathering of family and friends. On the menu? A host of crowd-pleasing appetizers that are as easy to make as they are enjoyable to eat. Here are five fabulous, Goodtaste-approved appetizers, perfect for all your New Year’s plans.
Hosting a New Year’s Eve brunch? These adorable chicken and waffle bites from Pure Wow are sure to be the hit of any celebration. Sprinkle them with a dusting of powdered sugar and serve with a dipping bowl of maple syrup for a savory-sweet appetizer that the whole party will love.
Imagine a blister-capped cross between the crowd-adored artichoke dip and the supremely easy-to-assemble French onion dip, and you’ll come close to envisioning the deliciousness of this warm crock of goodness from The View from Great Island. Combining crunchy-sweet Vidalia onions with a mix of mayo and sour cream, and the gooeyness of not one but three(!) different cheeses, the dip is baked until bubbly and served alongside sliced, toasted baguette.
Need a use for all that leftover cranberry sauce taking up precious Tupperware space in your fridge? These cranberry-brie bites from The Country Cook transform a tube of Crescent dough, a wheel of brie, and that aforementioned cranberry sauce into a colorful, party-ready app that’s ready in under 20 minutes.
If y’all haven’t yet used wonton wrappers as a shortcut in your cooking, this recipe from Peas and Crayons will have you convinced to try them out ASAP! These crispy cups of appetizer perfection combine frozen spinach and marinated artichoke hearts with a trio of cheeses (cream cheese, mozzarella, and Parmesan) all baked into crunchy little wonton bowls. They’re the perfect bite-sized party snack.
Developed in our own test kitchen, these simple sliders provide a tasty mix of carbs, protein, and fats—just in case you open an extra bottle of bubbles over the course of the night and need something hearty to help fill the bellies of you and your guests. Resolutions? Don’t worry—they’ll be there waiting for you tomorrow.
