Not up to putting on a formal dinner party for New Year's Eve? Can't blame you. And who cares? Most people would prefer the more casual atmosphere of lots of appetizer-sized nibbles, anyway.
To help you pull it all together, we assembled an easy menu that recasts some classic appetizers in fresh ways. Start off with a roasted take on the traditional shrimp cocktail. Make it funky by serving the shrimp and roasted grape tomatoes in individual spoons. We also have a quick and easy pineapple chicken salad that's served in lettuce wraps.
And for fun, we offer up "Elvis cups" -- mini phyllo pastry cups filled with bacon, peanut butter and banana slices.
