Today I'll be sharing some delicious appetizer ideas that each call for less than five ingredients, take just a few minutes to assemble, and are bite sized pieces of deliciousness!
Traditional Caprese Salad Bites
Directions : On a toothpick, skewer a cherry tomato, piece of basil, and mini mozzarella ball. Serve with a balsamic dipping sauce or glaze.
Rosemary Caprese Salad Bites
Directions : Trim the leaves off the bottoms of a rosemary branch. Skewer a mozzarella ball, then a tomato. Serve with this sauce.
Smoked Salmon Cucumber Bites
Directions : Peel a cucumber, and slice into 1/4 inch rounds. Mix 8 ounces of cream cheese with fresh dill (I use a big handful, but you can do this to taste). Spread on the cucumbers, and top with a bite sized piece of smoked salmon.
Cranberry and Orange Crostini
Directions : Spread cream cheese on a brioche toast or crostini. Top with cranberry sauce and orange zest.
Bacon Wrapped Lil Smokies
Directions : Wrap about 1/3 of a slice of bacon around a lil' smokie, allowing a little bit of overlap. Pierce with a toothpick to secure, and place on a foil lined baking sheet. Repeat with remainder of smokies, and sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake for 15-20 minutes in a 400 degree oven and serve immediately!
