I have an easy appetizer spread for you today! St. Patty’s Day is coming up quick and I always enjoy putting together some easy apps for any kind of party. We’ll be serving green beer AND green wine!
To complement both the green beer and the green wine, I want a balance of delicious, easy appetizers that will go with both. We have just a few friends coming this year and since we’ll be heading out for a full dinner after, I think an appetizer spread will be just the thing! Keeping it super simple is also a priority. I want to enjoy time with my friends and have everything in the kitchen ready to go.
I put together a cheese tray with a couple different cheeses, some mild salami, bread toasts and a few strawberries. I picked up some spicy olives to go with it, too! Then I made a killer cheesy artichoke dip that can be served hot (baked) or at room temperature (unbaked). I usually serve it both ways since the preference seems to run right down the middle.
So that took care of what to serve with those who choose green wine. But what about green beer? Sure, I could have kept it as-is. But we all know what goes PERFECT with beer and St. Patty’s Day! You guessed it: WINGS!!
I let Cooked Perfect Fire Grilled Chicken take care of the heavy lifting and picked up two flavors from their Fire Grilled Chicken Wings line: Classic Style and Zesty Herbs & Spice. Both flavors went well with the other appetizers I served and they are so delicious and convenient! They’re fully cooked with great flavor from being grilled over an open fire, yet the only thing I have to do is pop them in the oven. They have more flavors, too, such as Szechuan, Bourbon BBQ and Buffalo Ranch. They’re tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside, just how we like them! I like mine extra crispy so I’ll pop them under the broiler for a few minutes, although that’s just my personal preference.
Cooked Perfect Fire Grilled Wings can be found in the freezer section of your local grocery store (check here to find a store near you that carries them). I keep them on hand for anytime since my girls LOVE them and they can pop just a few in the microwave for a quick snack. I may have been known to do the same thing on occasion! :)
