For most of us, the holidays can get pretty stressful. With all the parties and events to attend, shopping there is to do, and planning to coordinate, we end up feeling anxious and run down. Not at all joyous and relaxed as the word holiday is meant to imply. A huge part of the festive season is eating. Everywhere we turn there's food to be tasted. You probably have obligations to bring a dish or two to a certain event. Let me ease some of your stress by suggesting some Deliciously Simple Cheesy Holiday Appetizers.
All of these ideas are so simple you'll be left wondering why you've been spending your time making boring cheese balls and basic bruschetta as your go-to Holiday Appetizers.
Holiday Appetizers Made Simple
Now, before we get into the great cheese debate (old cheddar vs brie vs camembert), let's check our preferences at the door and unite as one cheese-loving body. I mean, does it really matter if it's gouda or havarti? The important thing is that our holiday appetizers are cheesy, delicious, and simple.
