Ring in the New Year in style with bites perfect for a big party, small get together, or celebration for two! From savory to sweet, we’ve got you covered with a spread of small bites easy to hold with a champagne glass in hand.
Start the appetizers off with creamy Chèvre Bacon Tartlets. Phyllo cups are filled with a mixture of luscious goat cheese, crispy smoked bacon, and peppery arugula then topped with more crispy bacon (because it's true every year, you can never have enough bacon) and an arugula leaf for a fresh crunch. Can't get enough bacon? No problem. Bacon Jalapeño Puffs are puff pastry bites filled with minced crispy bacon and jalapeño then baked to a golden, buttery perfection.
Spicy Sweet Potato Fritters will keep your vegetarian guests happy. Shredded sweet potato is combined with minced serrano, pepper jack cheese, sweet corn kernels, and fresh cilantro for a bite you, and your guests, won’t be able to resist.
Jalapeño makes another appearance in Spicy Lime Cilantro Beef Empanada Bites. These tiny empanadas are filled with ground beef seasoned with lime juice, minced jalapeño, and fresh cilantro, then baked to a crisp. Finally, for a nosh with less heat try Chorizo Stuffed Mushrooms with a savory mozzarella breadcrumb topping.
Chill the champagne, throw some confetti, and get ready to party. Wishing you a delicious new year!
