28 Hot Christmas Nibbles and Starters

As Christmas day comes nearer and nearer, so is the pressure to get the menu together.

The only thing that’s sure to be on the menu is wine. lol

Well, I gathered a list of my favourite finger foods the whole family would love to nibble on during Christmas and I’ll start building my menu from here. Hope this helps you, too! Lots of nibbles and starters to choose from!

1. Hot Mini Quiches

Mini Quiches are an Aussie standard – and the best thing about them is that you can make them in advance and freeze them! Then, on Christmas morning, just defrost them and heat them in the oven!

2. Caramelised Onion Pinwheels

Much like the Hot Mini Quiches above, these Caramelised Onion Pinwheels can be made in advance and frozen – they are delicious little morsels perfect for entrees on Christmas Day. If you want to make them a bit fancier, add a little Feta Cheese to the onion mix.

3. Spinach Cob Loaf Dip

I’m a sucker for a hot cheesy dip – and this one is just delicious – even though it has Spinach in it lol! You can grab frozen spinach from the freezer section of your local supermarket.

4. Savoury Baked Brie

You don’t necessarily have to use Brie for this recipe – any gooey round cheese will work. Best of all – this recipe is so quick, you can throw it together at the last minute!

5. Beer Cheese Dip

Beer and cheese go together like salt and pepper – the perfect match. And this hot cheesy dip can be made in bulk and served in the slow cooker if you are making it for a large crowd on Christmas Day.
