No one turns down a holiday appetizer or three!

Turkey and all the traditional side dishes and trimmings are nothing short of fabulous, but you know what else everyone just loves to eat during the holidays? Finger foods. Appetizers. Hors-d’oeuvres.

Whatever you call them, those little snacks that you hold delicately in one hand, chatting away with family and friends while the cooking aromas drift out of the kitchen, are irresistible.

Umm…We’re a Little Busy Here?

But hang on. Isn’t there already enough to do?

What with basting, steaming, sautéing and baking, can’t we just open a bag of potato chips or something?

Sure, you could…and everyone would be happy.

But if you want to push the appetizer-boat out just a little further – we’ve rounded up three delightful ideas that take minutes to prepare and will perfectly satisfy your guests’ appetites.

Each recipe roughly feeds 12 people – so multiply or divide as needed!
