holiday party appetizers

The holiday season is an opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends – often over a shared meal. While many holiday dishes can be rich and indulgent, if you’re looking for a healthy holiday appetizer, Milton's Craft Bakers has you covered. Get inspired with these ideas for holiday appetizers, including gluten free and organic options.

Appetizer Ideas for Holiday Parties 

The holidays can be hectic. Whether you’re planning a holiday party or just want to be ready for unexpected guests, it’s helpful to have a few key ingredients on hand so you can quickly put together a delicious appetizer tray.  

At Milton’s Craft Bakers, we believe that everyone deserves to experience the joy of eating well, which is why we make a variety of Gluten Free and Non-GMO Gourmet Crackers that are perfect for dips, spreads, snack trays, and charcuterie boards. Our thin and crispy, gluten free Cauliflower Crust Pizzas are also a quick and easy option when you don’t feel like cooking. These are all great items to stock in your pantry and freezer, so you’re always ready to put together a holiday appetizer.

Creative Ways to Serve Holiday Appetizers 

Making holiday appetizers is a great opportunity to get creative in the kitchen. No worries, you don’t have to be a culinary whiz to impress your guests. Try these ideas for holiday appetizers the next time you entertain:​

Use Festive Shapes

Making a charcuterie board? Arrange your ingredients into a holiday shape, whether it’s a turkey, star, tree, or wreath. Check Pinterest for boards and snack trays you can replicate with your own cheese, crackers, fruits, and vegetables. 

Keep it Colorful

A simple way to stay on theme is to embrace holiday colors. For example, no matter what holiday you celebrate, you can use colorful veggies, fruits and other foods to bring color to your party. 

Use Cookie Cutters

Your cookie cutters aren’t just for cookies  – you can use them to cut snacks like cheese, cucumber slices, or tea sandwiches into holiday shapes. Take it another step further and create a festive pizza tray with Milton’s Cauliflower Crust Pizza. This is a fun way to get the kids involved in party prep, too!

What Are Some Good Holiday Appetizers? 

When hosting a holiday party, a good rule of thumb is to have at least one appetizer served hot and one served cold. 

Cold appetizers could include cheese and crackers, veggies with hummus, or even mixed nuts. Hot appetizers, like bacon-wrapped scallops, can be elaborate, or one-pan favorites, like baked Brie or a spinach and artichoke dip. Appetizers don’t have to be limited to savory bites – you can incorporate sweet seasonal flavors, too, like apple, cranberry and pumpkin.
