Effortless Easter Appetizers
Celebrate Easter Sunday this year with a spread of delicious appetizers. These small-bite snacks are easy to make and take along to lunches or dinners. Set out these pick-up options for guests to enjoy before the main meal, or you can choose to center your meal around these quick-and-easy finger foods. (Just be sure to make enough to feed a crowd.) Choose simple, no-cook options like Cured Salmon with Horseradish Cream and Strawberry Caprese Salad. As for traditional favorites, prepare our spiced-up version of pimiento cheese and classic ham-stuffed biscuits. And no Southern gathering is complete without a batch of deviled eggs. (We like this dressed-up version with spinach, poppy seeds, and bacon.) Another plus of these easy appetizers is the no-fuss prep steps and the quick cleanup afterwards. Don’t forget about including a few desserts to round out the meal.
