New Years Eve Appetizers

Here are some appetizers to make for New Years eve that I have tried and are delicious!

 

Mini Loaded potato bites

 

Ingredients: 

 

48 (about 1/2 of 32-oz. pkg.) ORE-IDA TATER TOTS
 
 
3/4 cup KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese
 
 
1/2 cup BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream
 
 
slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, cooked, crumbled
 
 
green onions, sliced
 
Directions:
 
Heat oven to 450ºF.
 
Place 2 TATER TOTS in each of 24 mini muffin pan cups sprayed with cooking spray; place on bottom oven rack. Bake 10 min.
 
Spray bottom of shot glass with cooking spray. Use (in twisting motion) to press TATER TOTS in each muffin cup to make potato cup. Return to oven; bake additional 15 min. or until deep golden brown.
 
Add cheese to potato cups; bake 1 min. or until melted. Transfer to platter; fill with remaining ingredients.
 
Tips: 
 
Spoon sour cream into small resealable plastic bag. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag. Use to pipe sour cream into potato cups before topping with bacon and green onions.
 
 
Guacamole Bruschetta
 
 
Ingredients:
 
  • 1/2 loaf French bread
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes, medium chopped
  • 2 avocados, medium chopped
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions:

 

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Slice the French bread on the diagonal into ½" rounds and place on a baking sheet.

Toast the sliced bread in the oven for 3 minutes, then flip each piece over and toast an additional 3 minutes.

Remove the toasted bread from the oven and immediately rub with the clove of garlic (it works best to first cut a small tip off the garlic clove so that the oils will seep out).

Brush the tops of the garlic-rubbed toasts with olive oil and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the chopped tomatoes, avocado, onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper. Mix together gently making sure the avocado is well coated in the lime juice.

Spoon a portion of the mixture onto each of the garlic toasts and serve.

 

Tips:

 

Top with Cojita cheese for extra flavor!
