New Year’s Eve is just a few days away, while it is a time we look forward to spending with those near and dear, it is also a time to enjoy great food along with great company which makes everything seem so perfect. Whether you intend to celebrate big this year or keep it small you can treat yourself to something mouth-wateringly delicious to welcome another new year. So if you are wondering what appetizers to make for New Year’s Eve, you have come to the right place. We are sharing 5 of the most popular and easy to make appetizers. We have something for everyone! 

1. Pigs In a Blanket

They are quick and easy to prepare. Instead of wrapping the little smokies one by one which would take a long time, you could just wrap the entire hot dog and then cut it into smaller pieces before it goes into the oven. You can also make them ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. If you want to keep it for more longer, store it in the freezer.

2. Turkey Pinwheels 

Turkey Pinwheels are bite-sized finger food. It is a healthy appetizer. You can customize it to suit you. You can wrap them up in a tortilla or pita bread. It is a healthy appetizer because you can use leafy greens such as spinach, tomatoes, roasted red or yellow peppers and cheese and do not forget the sliced deli meat, Turkey.

3. Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Bites

Bacon-wrapped chicken bites are simply mouthwateringly awesome. It is a must have in your appetizer menu. The secret is the well seasoned tender juicy chicken. The chicken is wrapped in bacon and is baked until crispy. Perfection in one bite is a possibility here.     

4. Whipped Feta Crostini 

If you have feta cheese at home this is an appetizer to try out. It will take you between 10 – 20 minutes to make if you are really fast in the kitchen. You just smear it on toasted slices of French bread with a herby olive topping. You can also use crackers and any garnish that suits your taste buds. 

5. Baked Coconut Shrimp

With coconut and shrimp freely available on our lovely island, this is easy to prepare and who does not love shrimp or prawns as it is most popularly known in these parts. Shrimp cooks very quickly and in this recipe, you need to bake the coconut. How awesome is that! You can serve it with either spicy mayo or sweet chilli sauce. So deliciously mouthwatering!
