Appetizer recipes for the Holidays

What is an appetizer?

  1. 1.
    a small dish of food or a drink taken before a meal or the main course of a meal to stimulate one’s appetite.
    synonyms: starter, first course, hors d’oeuvre

Often when entertaining during the holidays people stop in and have a drink, open a gift and nibble. Many unless planned ahead of time do not come for the big meals. We have always done up appetizers on Christmas eve. There are usually so many varieties it would be impossible to include a big meal. Then when we do the BIG family meals many will bring a dessert or appetizer. It is the best way to feed a group it is also a fab way to feed guests while having a drink or chatting. If you are really organized some appetizers can be prepared ahead of time and frozen or kept in the fridge for a few days.  To help inspire you for your entertaining this holiday season I have a fabulous round up.
