Weekly Round Up: Holiday Hor D’oeuvres

I love Christmas cookies, I really do, but you can’t eat them ALL DAY LONG or as the only appetizer during holiday get togethers. You’d get sick of them, and most likely, sick in general. Everyone does Christmas cookie recipes for a round up, so I figured, why not doing something a little different than everyone else. I am the one that has to find time to cook, so this will probably save others time, too! Here are some of the best festive appetizers I found!

Here is the list of the pretty appetizers:

Baked Apples
Crock-Pot Baked Apples via Skinny Chef

Sparkling Cranberry Brie Bites via Yummy Mummy Kitchen
Baked Brie & Sun Dried Tomato Dip via Menu Musings of a Modern American Mom

Mutabbal (Middle Eastern Eggplant & Tahini Dip) via For the Love of Yum
Pinecone Cheese Ball via Crafts a la Mode

Mini Beet and Goat Cheese Salads via The Endless Meal
Shrimp Wrapped with Roasted Red Pepper and tied with Green Onion.....
Gift Wrapped Shrimp Bites via Apron Strings

10 Minute Caprese Skewers via Iowa Girl Eats

I have a few that would be good additions to this as well!:

Tempura Fried Green Beans
Stuffed Artichoke

By the way, big thanks to Cara at Fox Claws for helping me find these fun recipes! She makes pretty incredible nail polish racks like this Roxy rack you can get at her Artfire or Etsy store!
