The family is gathering in a few short days, and you need holiday buffet recipes now! That’s me pretty much every year right before the holidays. Get your game face on because I’ve got a list that is going to bring all the compliments. Oh, these meatballs are lovely, and that veggie platter is darling! Check out my list of simple ideas to add to your holiday buffet that are quick, easy and most importantly delicious!
7 Of The Best Holiday Buffet Recipes
Cranberry Orange Crock Pot Meatballs
These cranberry orange meatballs are sweet, savory and only four ingredients? This recipe from Sugar and Soul sounds like an especially festive flavor combination. Add a crock pot full of meatballs to your holiday buffet and just watch your guest’s faces light up.
Add a touch of cheer to your buffet table, this Snowman Cheeseball is going to make your guests smile! Savvy Saving Couple did this cheeseball right, I totally want to dig in with a cracker!
Pesto Pepperoni Pinwheels
Yum, have you ever tried making a pinwheel style recipe? They are super simple and always look a bit more fancy too. Check out these Pesto Pepperoni Pinwheels for a burst of holiday flavor, yum! Pro tip? You can easily sub in cooked chicken breast or turkey instead of the pepperoni for an equally delicious bite.
Veggie Platter Wreath
Kitchen Counter Chronicle has the holiday spirit! Check out this super adorable Christmas Wreath Vegetable Platter. Just add dip in the middle and don’t forget that cute bow!
Easy Spinach Artichoke Mini Tartlets
Oh here’s another one of those recipes that looks like you made something fancy, but is super easy. During the holidays I sometimes need a few shortcuts, and these Spinach Artichoke Mini Tartlets have all the right moves. Just a little bit of bacon combines with store bought tart shells make this adorable appetizer come together so fast.
Antipasti Appetizer Skewers
Here is a fun skewer option from Holley Grainger that requires little to no cooking. Your stove is probably covered in other pots anyway if it’s anything like mine! Check out these super easy antipasti skewers. So maybe they cheated a little with the tortellini (that’s pasta!) but these super easy skewers will be hit whether you add pasta or not. I love that you can have guests choose their own, or prep the skewers ahead.
Panko Stuffed Mushrooms
These Panko Stuffed Mushrooms from As Easy As Apple Pie feel awful fancy but are super simple to make. I love how tiny mushroom caps quickly become the perfect finger food. These look amazing!
