Cutefetti’s Festive Holiday Ideas
After this trying year, we all deserve some extra Christmas cheer. Even the smallest holiday get-togethers can and should be made special. Dawn from Cutefetti took over our Instagram and dazzled us all with her festive holiday ideas starring frozen appetizers!
“…My first idea is a nod to shrimp appetizer trees which seemed to be popular in the 70’s. This easy take uses @seapakshrimpco Butterfly Shrimp. Simply prepare according to package directions and then lay out over a bed of curly parsley or your choice of greens. Add an extra dash of festive color with shaped peppers using small cookie cutters or halved cherry tomatoes. For a fun finishing touch, use a small star dish on top of the “tree” and fill with cocktail sauce, or add a star-shaped pepper slice. 🎄🎄…”
“…Finger foods are the best! There is something about mini kebabs that make it extra fun. Create your own unique bites by using Celentano Mini Rounds Cheese Ravioli from @rosinafoodproducts. Just prepare the ravioli according to package directions and then add to a mini kebab stick or toothpick. To make these festive, add a basil leaf and a little red pepper star or snowflake made using a cookie cutter! Add dipping sauces such as marinara to make it extra delicious!…”
“…Next up, enter this tasty appetizer tree! 🎄 Turn your family gathering into an instant fiesta with @joseolecentral Taquitos! Trust me, you will hit a HO HO HOme run when you serve these! Layer a variety of Beef Taquitos and Chicken Taquitos to form a tree shape. Add veggie cutouts and/or rosemary sprigs for decorations. To take it over the top, prepare a cheese ball as a “tree topper”…”
“…This one is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser and you’ll get to kick back and actually enjoy your family because it’s SO easy to put together! Imagine a fun appetizer in 1, 2… 3! It really IS that easy when you create mini kebabs using Celentano Italian Style Meatballs and Celentano Mini Rounds Cheese Ravioli from @rosinafoodproducts. Simply prepare according to package directions and then add to a mini kebab stick or toothpick. For the perfect festive touch, add a basil leaf to make it extra festive! Add dipping sauces such as marinara to make it extra delicious!…”
