I’ll admit it.
I pin tons of appetizer recipes. Oodles.
I make none.
Usually it’s because they require more time and ingredients than I want to invest in. I am a huge fan of effortless entertaining. I want it to be affordable, easy and without stress. During the holidays we have a lot of gatherings with our friends and family. We host game nights, TV nights, holiday soirees, etc. and this means we serve lots and lots of appetizers to nosh on.
Here’s one of my new favorites. As you can tell, the bag is ripped open. These are GOOD. I’ll admit some of the frozen appetizers leave a lot to be desired, but these Tyson Bruschetta Any’Tizers are delicious. It’s chicken, spinach, cheese, and an alfredo like sauce all gingerly nested on top of a delicious mini toasted bread.
You can find them for about $6.98 at Walmart in the area where all the appetizers are (they also have a chicken and bacon variety, which is next on my “must buy” list):
They come with about 2 dozen in a bag, which is a great value. They bake up in under 10 minutes, so they’re perfect for entertaining. Pop them in when guests arrive, serve up on a platter, and you are good to go.
And you know me, I always have a comment about calories—you can eat 3 for 170 calories (maybe pair with a salad and call it a dinner!) They are pretty meaty and the spinach doesn’t have a soggy or gross texture/taste. These are truly restaurant quality to me.
I had a friend over this weekend, and we were busy playing video games and having fun. We got hungry and I literally took 2 minutes to plop them into the oven, and 10 minutes later we were munching away.
This lil’ guy was obsessed with trying to steal them from us. He eventually succeeded. Gotta love Pee Wee’s perseverance.
And if you need more entertaining ideas or even craft ideas, you can read my post about the Holiday Celebrations 2012 eguide created by Party Bluprints Inc. & Collective Bias. It’s totally free and even features savings to some great retailers like Sears and Otter Box.
I may have to try this Holiday Sangria from the holiday e-guide this weekend:
Bottom line—don’t stress this holiday season! Holiday dining or entertaining doesn’t have to cost a lot or be complicated to be delicious thanks to Tyson Bruschetta.
I hope it’s an item they’ll carry year round because I am obsessed. Ya hear that Tyson? 🙂
What are your favorite appetizer or entertaining secrets for a quick, stress free holiday season?
