Our Favorite Wine Country Inspired Holiday Appetizers
The holidays give us an excuse to spend more time in the kitchen and to linger at the table with friends and family. Are you hosting a holiday party? Do you need some menu inspiration? At Clif Family, we’re here to help you with easy yet outstanding appetizers for your next soiree. Here are our favorite wine country inspired holiday appetizers for your upcoming festivities.
Easy Bruschetta Board
While a cheese board will never go out of style, it may be time to spice up your appetizer game with a Bruschetta Board. Start with the Perfect Bruschetta Bread and spreads like our Roasted Beet Dip or Green Olive Tapenade. Then add additional toppings like a soft goat cheese, prosciutto, olives, marinated peppers and grilled mushrooms. Your guests will have fun creating their own flavor combinations.
Don’t Forget Your Greens
We always try our best to sneak in delicious yet nutritious dishes to our menus. Chef John suggests drizzling our Chimichurri Sauce atop flank steak mini beef sliders. Or for a plant-based alternative, grilled Portobello mushrooms create a nice veggie base for the sauce.
Not Your Nana’s Cheese Log
Every holiday table must include a cheese log, right? Why not elevate your cheese game with this easy Bacon and Cheddar Cheese Ball recipe that can be made in advance. Highlighting our Organic Smoked Spanish Pimenton Almonds, the savory nut mix crust is the perfect pairing for hearty red wines.
