Fancy One Bite Appetizers

(This post has been updated and was originally published in 2013.)
I don’t know about you, but I am tired of cranberries, and sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts. I am tired of turkey and maple anything and if I ate ham, probably ham. Add sugar to this list. I am so sugared out. I never thought I would admit that! I am almost ready for healthy food but I still have one more event to get through! Yeah. I know you know what I’m talking about.

The New Year is upon us. We best start preparing now. It’s time to strut the stuff and have some fun. No religion, but a lot of praying…you know the kind of praying that you mumble deep inside, about keeping all those resolutions. Yeah. I know. We all do it. Right? This is the year I ‘m going to officially lose weight and pay off my bills and believe in myself more. I’m going to have more strength because I’m going to exercise more. Yeah. I’m just sayin’…let’s do it after we eat some of these simply fancy, one bite appetizers.

My goal is to keep simplifying. That means food, too. I have a tendency to overdo when I have company over and sometimes get worn out before they even arrive. This has got to change.  Inventing these simply fancy one bite appetizers that require no cooking, is a great way to get the party rolling. These appetizers are a bit more sophisticated than a dip, which means I have to be a bit more polite when I chow. Serve these fancy apps to company and they will be amazed that such simple and fairly inexpensive ingredients combine to create one incredible bite!

One bite appetizers are quick to prepare and no cooking involved. They are easy on your waistline as long as you don’t overdue, which I guess is true of most food! Figure 6-8 per person if it’s a cocktail party, and 4-6, if it’s a dinner party.  If you are making all 5 of these for a cocktail party of 8; make 12 of each and you will have a few extra. Maybe! But enough math for now!  With food like this it’s not hard to be the host or hostess with the mostest! And if you don’t feel like assembling each individually, just place one on a platter and let your guests copy it.

Your pantry creates many opportunities for creativity. Look what you can do with tortilla chips, potato chips and dried fruit. Take a crostini and add a mini Caesar salad. Take a look and see what you can come up with.  Manservant kept eyeing these plates and asking if this was lunch. He’s not one to let a good thing escape. And neither should you!

    Abbe, these dishes are so inspiring. I know what you mean by sugared out and I am on the same boat. I like all five bites but my vote will to go the bacon and goat cheese with chips!

    Holy shizz Abbe – those all look amazing!! My favorite appetizer was at a restaurant I worked at as an Assistant Manager – I could eat whatever I wanted – including filet mignon, but I always got the baked goat cheese appetizer over proscuitto and a balsamic glaze – so good!

    I'm tired of ham. 🙂 I really playing favorite to that potato chip/candied bacon thing. Great line up, they all look good. And I agree, I tend to overdo when company has been invited. Simplify is my new mantra also. Happy New Year Abbe. Let's make a NY Resolution that we should meet in person … I mean really, we live so close.

    Favorite hmm?? SO hard to choose. I would say for casual it's a bacon wrapped pretzel that is dipped into a mixture of brown sugar and cayenne before baking. SO good.

    For something nicer I sure do love brie that's been topped with fruit and brown sugar and wrapped in phyllo dough before baking. I could eat the whole thing!

    I love some of your simple bites because you really shouldn't overdo it so much so that you can't enjoy company…it's he chatting I love even more than the food! 🙂

    You have a ton of good ideas here! I'm always looking for appetizer ideas – I tend to like these much more than main courses (main courses have too much of the same flavor, whereas with appetizers you get to change flavors with every bite – bliss!). Does it count for anything in the giveaway if I already subscribe? 😉 Getting simple (you know what I mean!) is a great New Year's resolution. One I should make. Fun eats – thanks.
