Looking for scrumptious New Year’s Eve dinner ideas to impress your guests? We’ve got some great recommendations that will enhance your dinner party and make it especially fun and festive. We picked recipes that are easy to make and serve. This way, everyone can eat and drink at their leisure, and you don’t have to worry about serving everyone at once.
Keep in mind that you also have the option to cater your New Year’s Eve party. With catering, you don’t have to worry about shopping, cooking and cleaning up. Everything is done for you, and you can even have the catering trays delivered to your home! Or, you may choose to do a bit of both - cook some foods and have the rest catered.
In the meantime, here are some tasty recipes to enjoy on New Year’s Eve.
Even though barbecue sauce and grape jelly might not sound like a good combination, they work well together - at least in this dish. Combine BBQ sauce, grape jelly and meatballs in a slow cooker and let them simmer for hours! You can use frozen meatballs to speed up prep times. Other variations call for grape jelly and chili sauce. Either way, this is an easy, delicious crowd pleaser that requires very little work on your part.
You can make this recipe in advance and scoop it onto bread right before your party. It’s easy, inexpensive and refreshing. Combine fresh diced tomatoes with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh basil and a few other staples, and let the flavors mix together. Spoon the bruschetta onto the bread when you’re ready to serve. Italian breads like ciabatta or French bread work best because they can hold the weight of the tomatoes.
Another delectable dish to serve at your NYE’s party is parmesan bread bites. You can make them using pizza dough, cheese and fresh herbs. Once you prepare the bread bites, simply put them in the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. You’ll top them with more herbs and butter, and you can serve them with honey if you’d like. Your guests will love snacking on these finger-friendly bites!
To make this tasty dish, combine pulled pork, barbecue sauce and red onions in a large bowl. Spoon the mixture onto crescent rolls cut into triangles, fold them over and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. You can serve these pork bites with extra barbecue sauce, too. Not only does this pork ring serve a lot of people, but also it will look great on your NYE table!
Whether you choose to cater, cook or do a combination of both, your NYE party will be nothing short of spectacular! It’s fun to experiment with new recipes, and these will be definite crowd pleasers, especially on a night of drinking, eating and dancing!
