It’s appetizer season! And you don’t need to be at a glam party to enjoy them.
Seriously, the holidays are my favourtie time of year. And though a huge part of it is the cheer, the gifts, the traditions… but the thing I love most about the holidays, is THE FOOD! I mean, what other time of year can you nibble on chocolates and munch on hors d’oeuvres? Day or night. Entertaining or not. I’m not a sweet lover (though my kids are). I’m more of a salt fan, and my favorite snack bits usually feature a touch of salt.
On busy nights during the holidays (and most nights ARE busy) I like to put together a dinner for my family that is also easily added to, just in case unexpected company arrive. The simplest is to always have some sort of cheese tray on hand. On the Kraft Canada website you’ll find lots of simple options, like the Easy Cheese Wreath Recipe. There are also lots of party appetizer recipes there that can easily transform into a fun meal for the family. I reshaped our cheese wreath into an Old Cheddar & Pepperoni Christmas tree, using our favourite local pepperoni and Cracker Barrel Old Cheddar. On the side I had a variety of crackers, olives & pickles. As well as a veggie and fruit tray. It’s a easy balanced dinner… prep was a flash… and very little clean up.
The best part?
My kids eyes when I brought in the tray full of delicious morsels.
