Welcome to the Christmas series! I know, we are early but once again it’s to help you get your holiday menus together! I love appetizers. To me they are always so fun and I love having a variety of foods set out to nibble on. The best part about appetizers is you can mix and match a bunch of different cuisines to suit your guests preferences. I just think these mini creamy bruschetta bites are soooo adorable and you can make them super quick!
