One of the lovely joys of life is the ability to get to know other people and socialize. It’s always nice to feel like you’re a part of a community and have the camaraderie of people you love around you. In order to strengthen the relationships, find ways to get see one another and spend time together. A great way to do this is through a really nice dinner party. Host a few of your friends and prepare an amazing meal. There’s nothing like good hospitality and in order to host well, pay attention to details like appetizers. Consider these perfect appetizers to give your guests while they wait for their food.
Mini-meatballs are delicious and fun to make. You can choose to make mini-meatballs using ground lamb, turkey or chicken. Add savory spices and fry the meatballs for a crunchy exterior. Add a sweet and sour sauce and bake the meatballs for 20 minutes on low heat. As the flavors combine, serve the mini-meatballs to your guests with toothpicks.
- Crackers & Cheese
Crackers and cheese might seem like a childish option, but consider using cream cheese instead. To make it more sophisticated, cut fresh chives into extremely small pieces. As you cut up the chives, you can sprinkle them on top of the cream cheese and mix them in as well. To take this appetizer to the next level, add smoked salmon as a topping. Organic crackers with a cream cheese dip topped with smoked salmon will be such a hit.
- Tortilla Chips & Guacamole
Who can turn down a delicious guacamole dip? The best guacamole is homemade. Find a few recipes on YouTube and try the recipe before making a bunch of it for your guests. Choose the ripest avocados, fresh limes and juicy tomatoes. Don’t forget to add seasonings like sea salt and garlic powder.
- Fruit & Veggie Platter
It’s always wise to keep a few healthy options available. You can easily purchase a fruit and veggie platter at your grocery store. You don’t have to worry about cutting up each piece of food and this platter will serve as a great source of fiber.
