Sit-down dinners can be rather stiff. I much prefer trays of appetizers (and drinks!) on the table where people can pick a few once and come back for more as many times as they want until the food is all gone. Movement, to my mind, is the key to encourage people to talk and enjoy the company.
This is a list of appetizers that we have enjoyed tremendously in the past. They’re holiday perfect although there is no reason why you can’t prepare and enjoy them before Christmas and after New Year too.
If you haven’t perfected your appetizer and finger food skills, there’s time before the holiday parties begin. Just click on each image to view the accompanying recipe.
If these eleven small bites items are not enough to choose from, browse the entire small bites archive for more ideas.
