It sounds like a cliché already, but how time flies! I cannot believe that this year is almost gone, how did this happen? I am not sure if soon I’ll be one year wiser, let’s just leave it to one year older only.

Whether it was a successful year or not, a happy one or not, there is always that hope for a better year. And, of course, we have the New Year’s resolutions to worry about later on.

But, for now, let’s just enjoy the company of our dearest and nearest, and, of course, the delicious finger foods we have ready for the special moments. Each link will take you to my original recipe, enjoy and I hope you’ll have a wonderful party!

Happy New Year!

  •  Baked Italian Meatballs – a fantastic appetizer for your New Year’s Eve Party. A lot healthier than the fried meatballs, but so juicy, flavourful, and as quickly to make. Serve them with a nice tomato sauce, or just on their own with lots of grated parmesan and fresh parsley.

  • Extra Crispy Baked Chicken Wings – the perfect finger food for the most important party of the year. A lot healhier than the fried ones, these wings are absolutely delicious.

  •  Mini Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls – an impressive bite-sized party appetizer for a crowd. A lot lighter than the traditional sausage rolls, but so flavourful and easy to make. These turkey sausage rolls are great served either cold or hot.

These are the appetizers I think will be the star of the New Year’s Eve Party. They can be made in advance, and served cold at the party. No need to spend a fortune on food, just bring the drinks, the rest can be made at home.
