2011 Holiday Appetizers

by Erica Dinho on November 9, 2011

Can you believe that November is here? This year I wanted to publish a series of posts of my favorite holiday recipes. Every post will have a “Meatless” list and a “Meat lovers” list. As you know my husband doesn’t eat meat and I think that every party should have a meatless alternative in the menu!

So, for starters, pun intended, here are my favorite appetizer recipes from my site. Are you planning a holiday party?

Roasted Asparagus Wrapped with Serrano Ham

Shrimp Cocktail

Shrimp in Garlic Sauce

Stuffed Tomatoes with Tuna Salad

Fried Green Plantain with Avocado and Shrimp

Shrimp and Tuna Cakes with Avocado Sauce

Prunes Wrapped with Bacon

Shrimp Deviled Eggs



Tortellini and Tomato Skewers

Mushrooms in Garlic Sauce

Endive with Herbed Cream Cheese and Caramelized Apples

Cassava Croquettes

Spinach Balls with Tomato Sauce

 Empanadas Filled with Peanuts and Potatoes

Bean and Roasted Pepper Crostini

Ripe Plantain Balls

I’m doing a TON of holiday cooking since I’ll be the only meatless eater and I will definitely be using some of these for inspiration!
