Five 30 minute or less appetizers for New year's eve

It’s about time to ring in the new year! Our New Year’s Eve plans typically consist of a family party at home with an all-appetizer dinner and lots of games.

Staying up just long enough to watch the ball drop in Times Square. Although in past years, we’ve cheated and used the Eastern time to celebrate “midnight” with the kids. They’d never make it to midnight our time (Mountain Time)! 🙂

Here are five appetizer recipes for New Year’s Eve we love to make. They are sure to be family/guest favorites when you make them as well.

Have a happy New Year!

  1. Those smokies look absolutely delicious. We went over to our neighbors house and they told us not to worry about bringing anything. Otherwise any of these recipes would have been delicious to bring. If we host a Super Bowl party that Mexicorn dip will definitely be at the top of my list to make. Thanks for sharing!!!

      Yes, the Mexicorn dip would be great for a Super Bowl party! It’s almost addicting, but at least it has some healthy ingredients. 🙂

      I appreciate you stopping by!

  2. I like making sushi with a bunch of vegetables and homemade sauces. It’s always a hit with my friends!
