Quick + Easy Appetizer Ideas

Holidays mean entertaining and parties, which also means cooking and eating. Let us help you with your menu or potluck item this weekend with these four perfect appetizers.

Oh what? You don’t want to spend two hours ‘letting it firm completely’ or ‘marinate for 8-12 hours’? Me either. These recipes you can make an hour beforehand.

quick + easy winter appetizers

Butternut Squash, Sage and Ricotta Pizza - Pizzas are easy. Pizzas give you an outlet to use any and all produce you may need to use up. Our favorite is to use gluten free Natural Decadence pizza crust (which is basically regular crust but super crunchy) and top with some creative additions. 

Warm Goat Cheese Toasts with Walnuts, Rosemary, and Honey - spice up your goat cheese and toast appetizer with these seasonal touches.

Smashed Potatoes - tired of toast, crostini and bruchetta? Try smashing and roasting some potatoes. 

Buttery Roasted Chestnuts - I haven't yet tried chestnuts in this traditional way. I always imagined it would be difficult to prepare. But all it takes is about 30 minutes of roasting time and your done. That I can certainly handle.
