Around here we love to eat, but making food constantly through the holidays can be a chore. Here are some of our favorite, quick and easy appetizers to see you through the season! 

  1. Caprese Skewers: Skewer cherry tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil leaves, then drizzle with balsamic glaze for a simple and elegant appetizer.
  2. Cheese Platter: Arrange a variety of cheeses, such as brie, cheddar, and gouda, with some crackers, nuts, and dried fruits for a delightful and easy-to-assemble appetizer.
  3. Stuffed Mushrooms: Fill button mushrooms with a mixture of cream cheese, herbs, and breadcrumbs, then bake until golden brown for a savory and satisfying appetizer.
  4. Spinach and Artichoke Dip: Combine spinach, artichoke hearts, cream cheese, and grated cheese, then bake until bubbly and serve with tortilla chips or bread slices for dipping - or just buy a good version from your favorite grocery store! 
  5. Cranberry Brie Bites: Top mini phyllo cups with a small piece of brie cheese and a spoonful of cranberry sauce, then bake until the cheese melts for a sweet and savory appetizer.

These appetizers are not only quick and easy to prepare but also delicious and perfect for holiday gatherings or parties.
