Quick Finger Food Recipes for Your New Year’s Eve Party

A party is incomplete without appetizers. Be it a New Year’s Eve party or a birthday party, they are a must-have on every occasion. So, if you are looking for lip-smacking bite-sized dishes, you are in the right place. We have some easy and delicious finger food recipes for your New Year’s Eve party that will surely be a crowd-pleaser.

1. Bacon-Wrapped Scallops

This finger food will come together in mere minutes. You just need a handful of ingredients to make this dish – scallops, bacon, garlic, black pepper, butter, and some herbs (thyme preferred, but you can swap it with any other herb of your choice). Your guests will be highly impressed with your cooking skills.

2. Antipasto Squares

Antipasto Salad (assortment of cured meats, cheeses, and pickled or marinated vegetables) layered between flaky, buttery crescent rolls is a decadent dish that will leave the guests asking for more. Feel free to incorporate your favorite ingredients into the dish to make it more yummy. 

3. Almond-Crusted Chicken Bites

Almond-Crusted Chicken Bites are one of those finger foods that will win the award for the best dish. They are easy to make (only six ingredients are needed!) and are ready in 20 minutes. To add flavor, serve it with honey mustard dip on the side. 

4. Baked Salmon Sushi Cups

If you are a fan of salmon sashimi or enjoy salmon in your sushi (whether it be salmon nigiri or salmon maki), then you are in for a treat. Making authentic sushi at home can be intimidating and time-consuming.

Plus, not many like the taste of raw fish, so the finger food won’t necessarily be appreciated by everyone at your New Year’s Eve party. However, with this new version of baked salmon sushi cups, you can get all the flavors of your favorite roll without spending hours in the kitchen. 

5. Crispy Sweet Corn Wontons

Who does not like dishes that are sweet and crispy at the same time? These cheese-filled wontons are just that and more. The word gets its sweetness from the corn and can be served with sesame soy sauce and sweet chili sauce for added flavors. Also, the cheesy goodness makes it the perfect finger food for your New Year’s Eve party.

6. Mushroom Calamari

Umami-rich oyster mushrooms are lightly battered and fried for this finger food, offering one with a squid-free calamari dish. You can also use mushrooms of other varieties, but oyster mushrooms will be the perfect pick as they get perfectly crispy. To add a little spice, serve the finger food with spicy marinara sauce. 

7. Bacon-Wrapped Dates

Before you raise your eyebrows at bacon-wrapped dates, let us explain why you should try making this finger food for your New Year’s Eve party. The date’s sweetness perfectly complements salty and crispy bacon and creamy goat cheese, making it the perfect combo of flavors for your taste buds. Experiment with these and see them fly off the platter within minutes. Instead, we would suggest making an extra batch to meet the demand.

This easy pizza roll recipe has crescent rolls stuffed with Italian seasoning, pesto, garlic powder, pepperoni, and mozzarella cheese, then baked in muffin cups. Kids at your New Year’s Eve party will love this finger food.
