Grilled Pineapple Kielbasa Bites, a simple, easy and delicious holiday appetizer recipe featuring buttery Ritz crackers! Plus holiday appetizer party ideas!
Woo hoo it is officially holiday party season! I’m sure you have been to a few holiday parties already or have some in the works! Planning for a party can be super stressful. But, I’m here today to share some tips on making you next holiday party super smooth!
I really think planning out a huge meal is super stressful. So, I suggest throwing an appetizer party! Small bites that can be picked up and eaten with the hands. This way, you can have multiple items being set out at different times even, making having “dinner” on the table by an exact time so much easier.
Plus, this is serve yourself. No need for fancy china or utensils. Clean up will be so much easier too.
I suggest having one appetizer as a “main focus” and then building around that with items that will compliment. In this holiday appetizer party, my main focus dish were Grilled Pineapple Kielbasa Bites.
The recipe for these babies is at the end of this post! They are sooo yummy, a burst of flavor in your mouth! Sweet, salty, tangy, crunchy with that grilled flavor makes these over the top delicious!
Now, I used these as my main focus appetizer, putting them in the center of my buffet and working off them.
Then, I scattered other dishes around them:
Caramelized onion and bacon tarts, mini goat cheese cheese balls, dill cream cheese cucumber boats.
Asparagus fries with mustard dipping sauce, Rudolph cookie balls, eggnog creme puffs and strawberry cheese pastries.
Everything was a big hit and paired perfectly with the Grilled Pineapple Kielbasa Bites!
Everything you see here was purchased at Publix. I even purchased a couple pre-made items to make my life easier! They have an amazing selection of baked goods!
I kept the decor simple and festive. I picked up this garland from a local hardware store and it was such an amazing touch! Placing cranberry branches with it gave it an extra festive pop!
I did place candles out as well, but they are non scented. You really want the food to shine and not overwhelm your guests with other smells.
An extra little touch, these lighted trees to draw attention to the buffet area! I think it came out super cute!
Now for the recipe, these Grilled Pineapple Kielbasa Bites are so quick and easy, with only 4 ingredients!
