It’s the season for
Who doesn’t love appetizers? The season of holidays is coming soon! I serve more ‘small meals’ and appetizers than just about any other time of the year.
Do you like to serve delicous yet simple small dishes? I know I do. Small dishes seems to be a new way to describe appetizers, starters, and tapas.
Often for us, these small dishes are served in lieu of lunch or for the interlude before a special meal like Christmas Eve. Many times I have set out food prior to a concert or Christms Eve service so we can enjoy a little food before we go out. These special events start times would make being on time and a eating a meal before a frenzied effort to feed the family and get out the door on time. To avoid that when my children were small, I laid out a selction of hot and cold appetizers for us and guests.
It’s a tradition we continue today. Just keep them simple!
Baked Brie is one of our all time favorites. But like most appetizers we only have it a few times a year.
Baked Brie is maybe a little snazzier because well, it has a French name and you buy it from the fancy cheese section in the grocery store.
Use a cute baking dish. Mine is a Polish Pottery heart-shaped dish. You can find it HERE.
