Garlic & Cheese Pull Apart Bread
Who doesn’t like bread & cheese? Perfect for an appetizer, your festive night is guaranteed to be off to a great start with this deliciously warm, garlic infused option.
Spinach Artichoke Stuffed Mushrooms
Wonderful for when you want to seem like you really put in the time and effort. In reality, however, it was pretty simple to put together, but amazingly tasty!

PRO TIP: If you’re already baking a ham this year, use the leftovers to create these!

A different take on the classic potato for a different option if you decide regular mashed potatoes just aren’t enough! And there isn’t such a thing as too many potatoes, right?
To round out our short, quick list of suggestions, we have a super simple, yet delicious dessert idea for you. Instead of slaving over a tedious pie, opt for smaller, individual servings.
