My favorite thing about ringing in the New Year? New Year’s Eve Appetizers!!!

Are you busy trying to finalize your menu for New Year’s Eve? Appetizers are a great choice! Make a few of these ahead of New Year’s to find your favorites.

Wondering what our favorites are? It’s a toss up. Those bacon bombs look amazing, as do the guacamole deviled eggs, 3 bite tacos and bacon wrapped pineapple bites!

Don’t you wish you could make (and eat!) them all?

Don’t forget to try this Bacon Cheddar Cream Cheese Dip as well — it’s divine!

Baked Spicy Spinach Dip

What’s better than taking a classic wintery dish, and turning it into a delicious party dip? This beef stroganoff dip is soooo good. Just serve it with some chips to your friends and family and watch it disappear! It cooks up so quickly, which makes it an easy addition to any party.

Bacon Bombs

4. Bacon Bombs

From Love Bakes Good Cakes

I love to make appetizers for New Year’s Eve. These garlic and herb cheese bombs are always a hit, no matter who I am entertaining!

If you’re doing a few appetizers, it can be difficult to figure out your timing for dishes. The great thing about these bacon bombs is that you can pre-make them and put them in the fridge, then just pop them into the oven!

They break open to reveal a cheesy, herby, bacon filled center.

Bacon Cheeseball

5. Bacon Cheeseball

From Housewife Eclectic

Cheese balls are almost as much fun to make as they are to eat. I could say the same about bacon. Why not have both?

This recipe is honestly delicious, and so much fun to serve up on New Year’s Eve. The chopped pecans on the outside add a beautiful crunch that really completes the dish!

Brown Sugar & Bacon Appetizer

6. Brown Sugar & Bacon Appetizer

From The Typical Mom

I love mixing salty and sweet foods. They just complement each other so well! The brown sugar essentially caramelizes the bacon when you cook these up, I can’t think of a better appetizer to serve up! The bacon gets so mouth-wateringly crispy as these cook, I love to serve these with an array of dipping sauces.

Homemade Hummus

7. Homemade Hummus

From Like Mother Like Daughter

Homemade hummus is SO much better than store bought, and it can be used for so many different things!

All you have to do is blend the ingredients together and you have an appetizer perfect for New Year’s Eve.

This hummus is seasoned with cumin, salt, and garlic. If you want to change things up, try adding in sundried tomatoes or roasted red peppers!

Stuffed Cheesy Garlic Pull-Apart Bread

The pineapple adds the perfect amount of sweetness to the bacon, and the barbecue sauce to top it off really pulls all of the flavors together.

Nothing beats bacon wrapped food.

Cheesy Shredded Chicken Bites

11. Cheesy Shredded Chicken Bites

From Dine & Dish

These bites are super easy to make, which leaves more time this New Year’s Eve to spend with loved ones.

People can just walk by, snatch one up, and pop in in their mouth! You can serve it hot or cold too, which makes it a pretty versatile addition to your appetizer spread!

Cheesy Bacon Bombs

12. Cheesy Bacon Bombs

From Step-By-Step Recipes

These bombs are dangerous, and downright addictive! They use ready-to-bake biscuits, bacon, and cheese. Definitely cuts down on the prep work!

Every time I make these, my pants do this magical thing where they shrink a size or 2. 😉

Shrimp Ceviche

13. Shrimp Ceviche

From Home Made Interest

Shrimp ceviche is packed full of flavor, bright colors, and fresh ingredients. Serving them in avocado halves is a great idea.

There’s always something so refreshing about the flavors of lime, cilantro, citrus, tomato and onions.

These can be started a day beforehand so that saves you a ton of time on New Year’s Eve.

From Six Sisters’ Stuff

I never miss the chance to utilize the slow cooker in my kitchen. These sticky chicken wings are so easy to make.

Slow cookers are my favorite set-it-and-forget-it way to prepare food. Every dish that comes out of it is a hit.

Individual 7-Layer Dips

From Creative Me Inspired You

These wings are so pretty. I love to add them to a variety of wings I serve at a party. They have a light delicate coating on them so they’re perfect for my kids who aren’t a fan of hot wings.

You’ll probably have everything in your kitchen that you need to prepare these except for the wings.

Chicken Fajita Quesadillas

Easy Vegetable Pizza

23. Easy Vegetable Pizza

From Wannabite

Pizza is the perfect way to sneak vegetables to your kids. This Vegetable Pizza is so easy to put together, it uses crescent roll dough and cream cheese to perfectly accent the veggies on it.

You can add whatever toppings you’d like, I like to add some mushrooms and spinach to my pizza.

Caprese Skewers with Balsamic Drizzle

24. Caprese Skewers with Balsamic Drizzle

I actually just recently made these again, they are one of my favorite appetizers. The fresh flavors of a caprese salad in bite-form.

Baked brie is my all-time favorite appetizer. Take a fancy cheese, melt it, add some cranberries, and pretend it is a healthy meal.
