You can opt for a number of menus for New Year’s Eve, including a full three-course dinner (see Page D4) or you can go with a more casual atmosphere and serve lots of appetizer-sized nibbles.
To help you pull the appetizer option together, we assembled an easy menu that recasts some classic appetizers. Start off with a roasted take on the traditional shrimp cocktail. Make it funky by serving the shrimp and roasted grape tomatoes in individual spoons. We also have a quick and easy pineapple chicken salad served in lettuce wraps. And for fun, we offer up “Elvis cups” – mini phyllo pastry cups with bacon, peanut butter and banana slices.
