Antipasto Sliders

Antipasto Sliders are a fun and easy appetizer to serve at any occasion! Layer the ingredients in a baking dish, let the cheese melt and enjoy!

We made it. 

Home that is. 

But only for a hot second. We have just enough time to unpack the car, do a few loads of laundry, catch an episode of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, pack up Juniper for daycare and reload the car with ski gear. Phew. Is it 2020 yet? 

The reason for our quick turn around is because we are off to our annual New Yurt Eve excursion. I believe this is the third or fourth year of gathering at 12,000 feet to ring in the new year. We play games, cook dinner over a fire, frolick in the snow, drink lots of giggle juice and simply, enjoy the peace and quiet. 

My plan is to bring a smorgasbord of options for us to nosh on like these Antipasto Sliders. Seriously, these are so freaking easy to make and taste off the charts. All you do is layer ham, pepperoni, provolone, and pepperocini inside a slider bun. Cook in the oven, watch the cheese melt AND BOOM! Appetizers for a crowd. 

Besides tasty appetizers, you can’t ring in the new year without a cocktail in hand. So I’ve rounded up a few cocktails that would be lovely to serve!

Spiced Merlot Sparkling Punch

Pomegranate Rum Punch

Turkish Old Fashioned

Apple Ginger Rum Shandy

Cardamom Rum Pina Colda

Sparkling Pear Cider

I hope y’all have a wonderful New Year! Cheers to the adventures ahead! xoxo
