Easy New Year’s Eve Party Food Ideas


Although our Grilled Peppers Hors D’oeuvre do require a bit of prep time in the kitchen, you can easily make them the day before the big bash and have them ready to go when guests arrive. We love them because they’re just so unique!


A sandwich as an appetizer? No, we haven’t misread the definition of appetizer, just go with me for a moment. You’ve seen those giant sandwiches cut into pieces at parties, right? Well, our Salmon Baguette is definitely a bit classier, but serves the same basic function. It’s heartier than a basic appetizer yet still doesn’t require much work on your part.


Salad is one of the easiest things to whip together, but it can get messy during festivities. Our Avocado & Shrimp salad is served in pretty glasses! Guests can enjoy it while mingling! This salad goes awesome with our homemade garlic bread!


Speaking of messy, yes, these Nachos with Guacamole certainly aren’t the neatest appetizers, but WOW, are they yummy! Keep a stack of napkins handy! Need another dip recipe to mix things up? How about an Avocado Hummus recipe?


Skip the nuts and give guests a healthier salty treat that they can pop in their mouths with these tasty Sesame Roasted Radishes!


Throwing a party last minute and don’t have time to make even the easiest New Year’s Eve party food ideas? Toss together this Southwest Snack Mix in seconds! It will hold your guests over until you can pull together one of our other quick recipes.

There you have it! Plenty of easy New Year’s Eve party food ideas that you can either make ahead of time or throw together in moments.

  1. The nachos and salsa look really good. I’ve never had a New Years party, after hosting thanksgiving and Christmas every year, I’m usually good having a quiet night at home

  2. Hi Nicole,
