Easy and Unexpected Appetizer Ideas for Your Holiday Gatherings

Like many Vancouver residents, you probably have at least one holiday party or event to attend this holiday season or maybe you're playing host this year. Whatever the case may be, we're here to make choosing the perfect side dish to bring to the potluck or creating the perfect menu much easier with these simple-to-make, unique appetizer recipes.

Fruit and melted brie on a crusty slice of toasted bread is a tried and true favourite, so why not mix it up for the holidays with this five-ingredient surprisingly simple recipe? Store-bought puff pastry, salted butter, cinnamon sugar, brie cheese and dried cranberries are all you need. Assemble the ingredients on a baking sheet, slice and roll them up, then bake until gooey and golden.

It only takes about an hour and a few ingredients to whip up this tasty and healthy appetizer. Just preheat your oven, put the ingredients in a roasting pan, cover and bake for about an hour. Best served warm.

Deviled eggs are one of the most beloved appetizers around, but they can be a bit tedious to make. Don't have time for that this holiday season? No worries. Opt for this no-stuff version instead. A base of buttery crackers adds an unexpected and advantageous twist. Be sure to pick up a box of your favourite brand, along with traditional deviled egg ingredients like eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, paprika, salt and pepper. Rather than mashing and inserting yolks into the eggs, you merely have to slice and layer the fixings on your cracker. Easier to prepare and less messy to eat!

Quiche is a simple, yet elegant dish that's well-received at any get-together. You're sure to appreciate this recipe for its versatility. Feel free to adapt it to your tastes and preferences. You can add ingredients you and your party guests enjoy. Plus, there's no rule that says these have to be mini quiches. You can opt to use a regular muffin pan or even a large pie pan. You'll still end up with a tasty, fluffy, flaky, cheesy appetizer to share with the gang.

When heading out to do your holiday party prep shopping, why not stop at Famous Foods instead of running all over town to complete your list? We want to be your one-stop grocery store in Vancouver, where you'll find a vast selection of health foods and beverage items you need for every day of the year at prices you can feel good about.
