Our 43 Best Holiday Party Appetizers

If the finger foods are good, everybody is happy

Finger-friendly, elegant, and (almost too) easy to eat, these recipes for appetizers and hors d'oeuvres are perfect for all of your holiday endeavors. Starting off with something unexpected, like salmon appetizers are one of our favorite ways to elevate any event, whether it's a fancy cocktail party or potluck dinner. But the classics are called so for a reason, so don't overlook go-tos like homemade pigs in a blanket, cheese gougères, or crab toasts. Any of these recipes can be scaled up to accommodate more guests. Now all you need is a festive drink.
