Antipasto Bites

Antipasto Bites

For most people the holidays might be cookie season, but for me its appetizer season! And I could not be more excited to share some of my favorites with you all including these super simple antipasto bites. I love an epic cheese tray, but its not always perfect for every party scenario. If you have a situation where you have passed hors d’oeuvres or just need a little bite, these are the way to bring a cheese tray into one little bite!

Need an appetizer for your next holiday party? Look no further than these simple, but delicious antipasto bites. They give all the same flavor as a cheese tray, but in one simple little bite!
 

For Christmas I get lots of food gifts and I am sure you would not be surprised to hear that I absolutely love these food gifts, but last year I got 3 different cheese trays for serving things just like these little antipasto bites. They are so beautiful, but I feel like I need to have some kind of event to put them out for, but I am making the commitment to use them on a regular basis in 2019. Who says a regular Tuesday night can’t also be fancy cheese tray night!?

I have given the recipe for these antipasto bites below, but its honestly more like a formula that you could follow with any antipasto items. I even have my girlfriend thinking of new combinations like goat cheese and prosciutto for the next round. Stay tuned because this is the first of many holiday appetizer ideas I have coming out this season! I have so many swirling through my mind that I may have to have an appetizer only party sometime soon! Perfect chance to use another one of these. As always, if you make these bites for a holiday gathering be sure to tag Mad About Food so I can see what you have made!
