Tis the season to celebrate. Here are some enticing appetizers from around the Internet:
FIGS PROSCIUTTO: figs, prosciutto, cheese, honey.
ANTIPASTO SKEWERS: Salami, mozzarella, artichokes, olives, tomatoes, etc., marinated and strung on skewers. (We tried this one and it was a hit.)
SEARED PORK BELLY & GREEN PEPPER BRUSCHETTA: pork belly (!), spicy peppers, lemon zest, on toasted bread slices.
SANTA HAT APPETIZERS: strawberries, bananas, and marshmallows.
LAMB MEATBALL SLIDERS: lamb meatballs (you can keep them warm in the crockpot), slider buns, sauce.
BEET AND GOAT CHEESE NAPOLEONS: slices of roasted beets alternating with herbed goat cheese. Use yellow beets so they won’t bleed into the cheese.
CHRISTMAS TREE CHEESE PLATE: Lay grapes, cheese, and herbs out to form a Christmas tree. Or do it with tomatoes, cheese, and rosemary.
