Need retro appetizer ideas (recipes) for a themed New Year's Eve party.
Friends are having a retro cocktail party for new year's eve. Any ideas for appetizers that don't need to be cooked right before eating or can be just served warm, room temp (they have a ridiculously small kitchen). or cold? Thanks in advance!
How about the block of cream cheese covered with a jar of ??? whatever...I've seen that recipe bandied about and I do believe it may have originated somewhere from 'back in the day.' Of course, you serve it with Ritz crackers... I also have a recipe for Shrimp Mousse which I think is also quite retro if you'd like it.
Chex Mix is turning 50 this year, I think, so that would be appropriate for the fiftes, sixties, seventies, and eighties! FriedClamFanatic posted this variation recently.
"Spicy Chex Mix! Add a lot of red pepper, extra cashews and peanuts, Kix and Cheerios, potato sticks and Bugles. Double the amount of Worcestershire. A sure hit!"
Swedish meatballs. You can reheat them easily or keep them in a small crock pot (slow cooker).
If anyone has a fondu pot, that is very retro and you might be able to throw it together outside of the main kitchen activity.
Cheeze whiz on ritz crackers with a spanish olive slice.
