New Years Eve Menu

2018 is almost upon us and we need an epic New Years Eve menu!! But first… after 30 years of life I’ve come to a conclusion….

Going out on New Years Eve is MAJORLY overrated. It’s all about hosting a little (or big) soiree at home and throwing a kick ass bash. And I’ve rounded up a bunch of great bites and drinks to make it the best and easiest party you’ll ever host. If you want to do more of a sit down dinner party – well, here you go! Lots of dishes can be made ahead, some require no actual cooking and they are exactly what you want to be eating while you ring in the new year!!

Savory things:

Thyme and Garlic Baked Camembert

Cheesy Artichoke Dip 

Brie Stuffed Mushrooms

Loaded Guacamole

Cheese Board

Jalapeño Bacon Loaded Potatoes

Loaded Hummus

Fried Ravioli

Garlic Wedge Fries

Crudité Bar

Hot Caprese Dip

Bruschetta Bar
