Christmas Appetizer Puffs

It’s Christmas party time!

It seems like my friends all have something they are known for when it comes time to bring food to a party. Whether it is a savory side dish or a sweet snack, they quickly volunteer to make what they know best.

This foodie? I like to bring a veggie tray. My husband laughs at me every.single.time I say I’ll bring veggies to a party. It’s partly because then I know there will be something healthy to munch on, partly because it is easy, and partly because I love the pretty colors that veggies provide.

If you’re known for bringing veggies to parties just like I am, I’ve got a pretty appetizer display idea that you can bring, so your friends think you put much effort into making their party the best. But really? You’ll know these Christmas Appetizer Puffs served with veggies and hummus took no time at all.

Hummus is always delicious served alongside a veggie tray. Use Christmas-colored veggies for your next Christmas party: broccoli, celery, radishes, grape tomatoes, red and green peppers, and cauliflower.

Then to switch things up a bit, make these Christmas appetizer puffs to go alongside your veggies and hummus. They start with puff pastry cut into Christmas shapes.  Then they get a little brush of olive oil and a sprinkling of cheese or any savory seasonings that you’d like.

Bake them up and get pretty Christmas shapes! I loved their flaky, simple flavored texture and thought it paired perfectly with the more intense flavor and creamy texture of the Boar’s Head hummus.
