We’ve got a party planning tip for you, pulled straight out of the “How to Throw the Most Awesome Party Ever ~ Party Tips Playbook.” (Ok – so maybe we made that up. As far as we know, there is no such book. Although, there really should be, don’t ya think? Hmmmm … maybe we’ll write it …)
Anywho … here’s the tip (which is totally not made up):
Rule #37 When hosting or attending a party, always be sure to include appetizers. Lots of appetizers. This applies to holiday parties like Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner, football parties and tailgating, picnics, cookouts, block parties, birthday parties, and (most especially!) New Year’s parties. Pretty much any party, ever.
Well, for one thing, everyone loves appetizers! In fact, some of the very best bashes are appetizer buffets where you can sample lots of wonderful nibbles without really overly committing to any of them! A little taste here, a little taste there …
And also because, when all else fails, appetizers can save the party! Yup! When the rest of the food is off schedule or the guest of honor is running late (and everyone else is sizing up the yum-potential of your cardboard drink coasters) … a few little appetizers will keep the party rolling merrily along.
So, just in time for Christmas and New Year’s and the many, many football games to come, we’ve put together a terrific, totally inspiring line-up of finger food appetizer recipes!
As you’d expect from THK, we searched for recipes that look completely droolworthy, but are also easy and so much healthier! No one will notice that they’re eating healthy … they’ll just notice “delicious”! But, everyone will head home pumped up with a few more great nutrients, feeling just a little less overstuffed … and everyone will be asking for your recipes!
Oh! And all the recipes in today’s list are finger foods … great for nibbling. If you’d like to round out the appetizer spread with some fantastic hot dips, then be sure to check out our list of the Top 10 Healthy Hot Appetizer Dips, too! From a healthier buffalo chicken dip and a skinny queso, to a spinach dip recipe and baked hummus … they’re absolutely noshable, easy and healthy, too!
Happy Holidays to all our THK friends! May all your parties be delicious successes!
