Unique Appetizer Recipes for Parties
Everyone seems to love spinach and artichoke dip, and I am no different. Spinach and artichokes make a delicious pairing and when you throw in three cheeses, swiss, cream, and parmesan, then you have an even better combination! Puff pastry is one of my favorite products to use when making appetizers. It instantly elevates any recipe.
These puff pastry cups look super fancy and I absolutely love the elegance that they can bring to any recipe. But I have to be honest, these were bought completely by mistake, and it ended up being a great surprise! I thought I was buying the traditional rolls of puff pastry but grabbed these by accident.
These pastry cups bake up in about 18 minutes and the tops literally pop right out! If you don’t want to make spinach and artichoke dip, you could fill these with so many other fun things, cranberry and brie would be delicious for the holidays!
I sprayed mine with PAM Non-GMO Avocado Oil Cooking Spray before cooking to get those beautiful golden brown tops! You could also brush with an egg wash which is just egg mixed with a little bit of water then brushed on with a pastry brush.
I have been striving to eliminate GMO laden foods from our diet and I love the convenience of and ingredients in the new PAM Non-GMO cooking sprays. They have a Coconut and Olive Oil variety in addition to the Avocado one that I used in this recipe. They all have less than three ingredients, which are all Non – GMO Project verified, so you know exactly what is going in your food.
This recipe will become a go to when you need an appetizer recipe idea for a party or holiday get together! They are trending on Pinterest right now and for good reason– they are so delicious and so easy!
