Whether you’re having the whole family over on Sunday, or you’re visiting and would like to bring something to dinner, here are four easy appetizers that will go great with your Easter meal!
These delicious bites are easy to make. All you need are grape tomatoes and mozzarella cheese balls. Toss them in some olive oil, basil, salt, and pepper, then place them on toothpicks or small skewers. Sometimes Easter dinner can be heavy, so this appetizer can start off the meal without filling everyone up too much.
Eggs are a big part of Easter, and making deviled eggs can be a fun way to use the eggs from your Easter baskets. Many people have their favorite recipe which usually involves a combination of mayonnaise, mustard, and some sort of relish. If you want to have a little more creative looking eggs this year, click here for a recipe that turns deviled eggs into baby chicks peeking out after just hatching! This variation will put smiles on everyone’s faces.
These handheld appetizers are great because children can help make them, and they’re easily transportable if you want to bring them! All you have to do is take slices of bread and flatten them out with a rolling pin. Mix crumbled up bacon, cream cheese, and herbs, and spread on the bread. Place a couple spears of asparagus in the middle and roll it up. Brush the outside with butter and sprinkle some parmesan cheese over top. Bake them until golden brown, and crispy. You can substitute crescent roles for the bread if you wish. These will be a delicious addition to the meal.
Hummus Vegetable Garden
Vegetable platters are always a big hit at gatherings, and spring is a great time for fresh vegetables. Instead of plating the vegetables around the plate with the dip in the middle, fill a tray with the hummus and stick the carrots, celery, and peppers in it! It will look like a garden ready to be picked, and it could be one of the highlights of the dinner!
