I'm always looking for appetizers that are easy to make and easy to serve, especially during the holidays. We host Christmas dinner, but of course, I like to put out a few simple snacks before the meal is ready.
I know I'll be busy in the kitchen, but my kids and the guests definitely won't. And I know my kiddos will be super hungry by the time dinner is ready to eat!
Dips are always popular, but people just love finger foods, as well. I adore anything bite sized!
So I've put together a list of easy appetizers that you can serve for holiday entertaining and beyond. We always stay in on New Year's Eve and nosh on appetizers, and don't forget about the playoffs. You definitely need some good snacks for game days!
