Every party with family or friends starts with some appetizers, little and surprising snacks to get into the mood and warm up for the main course. Sometimes the event consists of a series of appetizers, more tapas-like. Over the years I collected a lot of them, here are my favourite 10 easy and surprising appetizers.
Date candies with orange is my personal all time favourite. I found it in an international cookbook and to me, it feels quite exotic. They are very sweet but this is compensated by the oranges.
These delicious banana canapés are a genius combination of bitter, sweet and sour on a small piece of roasted baguette.
Bacon wrapped Brussels sprouts are the perfect starter for autumn or winter. You only need three ingredients and a toothpick to make them.
Also for dates filled with goat cheese and walnuts you only need three ingredients to make it. It is super easy to prepare.
You can make mini zucchini pizzas in many variations, as with real pizza. Be creative! Everybody will like it and it is also very healthy.
The celery snack with roquefort and walnut fits into the same category as the dates with goat cheese and walnuts. Of course, with celery and blue cheese you get a whole different sensation in your mouth.
With fresh vegetables like carrots and bell pepper these dip sauces are very tasty and healthy.
How to bring north and south together in one snack? The dates represent the south and sweet. Smoked mackerel and skyr bring it to Iceland. A surprising combination of skyr, smoked mackerel and dates.
It cannot get much easier: cucumber, brie, half a walnut and a drip of honey. Therefore it gained the title of the easiest healthy easter snack.
