What to Make this December

Posted December 2, 2018 by Stephanie

It’s holiday party season! Which means, you’ll find me at the food table, stuffing my face with all the handheld food stuffs because handheld food is the best food! Here’s a quirky little list of tasty handheld foods of what to make this December.

Hand pies have got to be one of the best inventions ever. Flaky, buttery pastry around a juicy meat filling? Count me in! These guys are a Vietnamese take on the classic British pie. Try them! Once you have one, you won’t be able to stop.

Hello roast beef! Mini yorkshire puddings topped with thinly sliced roast beef, wasabi mayo, and sunny side up quail eggs? Holy beef, I’m in! Feel free to make these on toast too because fancy toasts are never a bad thing.

Jalapeño Bacon Ranch Mini Twice Baked Potatoes Recipe |

Twice baked potatoes are underrated. They’re so GOOD I always wonder why people don’t make/eat them more. Fluffy potato insides mashed up with ranch dressing, cheddar, bacon, and green onions then baked to golden perfection.

Sausage Cheese Balls Recipe |

Have you ever had sausage balls?! Crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, these balls come together so quick and are always one of the first things to go at potlucks :)

Handheld lasagna! Need I say anymore? These mini lasagna roll ups are all the things you love about lasagna in a bite size, pick-up-able form. YAAAAS.

Mini Hot Ham and Cheese Sliders Recipe |

Hot ham and cheese sliders. Warm and delicious, you can prep these ahead and then just pop them in the oven when you’re ready to feed yourself…I mean, people.

Mini Everything Pretzel Dogs Recipe -

If you want to impress, make these everything bagel pretzel dogs! Soft and pillowy pretzels and snappy hot dogs are a match made in heaven.

Nem Nuong/Grilled Vietnamese Pork Sausage Recipe -

Another kind of sausage ball because sausage balls are the best! These guys have a bit of Vietnamese flair going on – they’re incredibly juicy and flavorful. SO GOOD.

Alright, I’m off! Hope you guys have lots of holiday parties this month. Maybe even some parties planned just for one or two? Spoken like the true introvert I am LOL.

Happy cooking!

    The Panfried salmon potato cakes from Elegant and Inspired Viji’s cook book are amazing. A little tedious for a large crowd as they are best served hot from the pan but are so worth the effort

  2. Love the handheld lasagne idea!! Looks delicious <3
