Weather you are hosting a New Year’s Eve bash or an intimate party, food is at the top of your list. AM I Right?

Today I’m sharing some delicious Appetizer’s for New Year’s Eve Party and New Year’s Eve Food Party Recipes.

Although Christmas is almost upon us, now is the time to plan for your New Year’s Eve Festivities. Our Virtual Supper has pulled together some great recipes and ideas you are going to love.

Hearty Appetizer’s for New Year’s Eve

Because I’m the main hostess for this month, I wanted a main course appetizer. Therefore, I’m sharing a Beef Tenderloin Crostini Recipe that’s sure to please.

In addition, you will see 3 more delicious appetizer recipes, as well as a cocktail drink and dessert recipe.

Our guest host this month is Aliya from Open Doors Open Hearts who is sharing a delicious appetizer.

You may be joining me from Stacy at Bricks N Blooms who’s Quick & Easy Prosciutto Recipe sounds so yummy. I’m so glad you stopped by and here is my recipe.

Beef Tenderloin Crostini – New Year’s Eve Food

Begin by marinating your Beef Tenderloin for approx. 1-2 hours. You can use a prepared marinate or our recommended recipe (see the full recipe below).

Next, sear the outside of the beef for approx. 3 minutes on each side. Move to regular grill and cook until the internal temperature is 135 degrees for medium rare beef.

Finally, slice beef into bite size pieces, approx. 1/8-1/4 inches.

While preparing your beef, you should bake the bread according to package directions. Then slice into thin, bite size pieces.

You can add butter to the slices and toast, as an option.

Appetizer’s Topping Recipe

For the topping, you can use regular horseradish, horseradish creme or mix together these 3 easy ingredients – Sour Creme, Horseradish & Worcestershire Sauce.

Details are on the recipe below.

Ingredients for Horseradish dip.

Serve Delicious Appetizer’s

I arranged the beef tenderloin on a platter with fresh dill garnish placing the bread and topping on the side.

You can add the beef and topping to the toasted bread slices or allow your guest to build their own crostini.
