It's holiday crunch time! Whether you're looking for a quick appetizer to add to a party menu or to whip-up because guests are knocking at the door, we have five staff-favorites that fit the bill.
1. Pear-and-Prosciutto Bites
Cut ripe pears into wedges and wrap with thin strips of prosciutto.
2. Apple-Trout Canapes
Thinly slice Granny Smith apples into rounds and top with sour cream and smoked trout. Feeling extra-fancy? Caviar makes a great garnish!
3. Salami and Pickle Roll-Ups
Spread a little whipped cream cheese on a slice of salami, place a cornichon on top, and roll up.
4. Fried Almonds
Fry whole blanched almonds in olive oil until golden brown. Drain, sprinkle with salt, and serve warm.
5. Pecan-Crusted Goat Cheese
Roll a log of goat cheese in chopped pecans, minced fresh rosemary, and coarse salt. Drizzle with honey and bake until soft and warm. Serve with crackers and more honey, if desired.
