New Year’s Eve is arguably one of the most celebratory nights of the year. These simple, yet special, party food suggestions are a great way to welcome in a new year.
Whether you’re planning an intimate celebration or a large gathering these Savoury Appetisers will be a hit at your party.
If you are hosting a large party, try setting the food out as a buffet. It is one of the easiest ways of entertaining – your guests help themselves!
You’ll find that many of these recipes, or the elements of the recipe, can be made in advance. This will save you from spending your evening in the kitchen, and instead, allow you to celebrate with your guests.
Our collection of Appetisers for New Year’s Eve is the inspiration you need when planning your party menu.
Homemade dips are healthier, cheaper and tastier than storebought, and you’ll be amazed at just how simple they can be to make too! A dip platter makes the perfect appetiser for your New Year’s Eve party! Choose a variety of flavours and colours for creative presentation.
Serving suggestions for dips:
- Fresh, crusty bread or my Spelt or Gluten-Free Focaccia
- Mixed Seed Crackers
- Carrot, celery and cucumber sticks
- Crostini – ideal for bread that has been around for a few days!
- Homemade Pita Chips
