  • For an app. I would just do a simple cheese, cheeseball, summer sausage, and cracker spread. You don't want anything they could easily fill up on. For sides you could do Rosmary Roasted Potatoes, Sauteed Garlic Asparagus, egg noodles in a simple oil and butter suace. Baked Macaroni with Velveeta and Cheddar Cheese. Nice Hardy greens Salad with a simple vinegrette dressing.

    For dessert .. A cheese cake with a creamy chocolate topping. A simple pumpkin bread with a creamy sugar icing, or just warm Pumpkin bread over vanilla ice cream. Carrot cake with a simple cheese cake icing. A simple fruit and cream trifile.

    Those are the ideas that I could think of, with a little help from google. I hope they gave you some direction! Happy Cooking!

  • MMMMMMM! Sounds yummy I'm thinking I might make primerib but will see where that goes because I want to make something different I usually make turkey but am sick of that. Pork loin with apple butter sauce yummy I might make something like that instead of primerib..I usually draw a blank with sides and appetizers sorry I'm not much help...I love food network they inspire me a lot. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

  • Hashbrown casserole - I don't follow a recipe, but shredded hash browns, some cream of whatever soup, sour cream, cheese (co-jack's my favorite, but cheddar, colby, cheddar-jack, etc, all work), some garlic if you like, black pepper - mix it all up til it looks good, spread in a baking dish, and bake an hour or so til done. A veggie salad...fruit salad...pies for dessert. I don't do apps.
