5 Delicious New Year's Eve Recipes

Start 2017 off right, with a delicious home cooked meal that you’ll remember all year long! If you’re hosting a holiday party, we’ve got 5 simple and scrumptious New Year’s Eve recipe ideas that’ll have your guests singing your praises!


Shrimp is a quintessential New Year’s Eve food and it is as versatile as it is tasty! Enjoy it in a new way this year, wrapped in bacon and paired with pineapple. The unexpected flavor combo will likely become a new favorite. With smoky, succulent and tangy flavors, what’s not to like?! With just three ingredients, it’s a breeze to put together. Place a pineapple slice in the natural curve of the shrimp, wrap a bacon slice around them and secure it with a toothpick. Cook in a hot skillet for three minutes, until the bacon is crisp and the shrimp are firm. Enjoy!


There are few appetizers as beloved as spinach artichoke dip. Add a pinch of nutmeg and some creamy gorgonzola cheese to the spinach & artichokes for a crowd-pleasing combo. Serve with crusty white bread, veggie sticks or pita chips and you’re all set!


The ultimate comfort food, a hearty pot roast is the perfect way to ring in the New Year. Let a chuck roast cook to tender perfection in a Dutch oven with the flavors of garlic, cognac, cloves, peppercorns, thyme and bacon mingling to create a mouthwatering dish to be enjoyed with hearty vegetables like rutabaga, fingerling potatoes, mushrooms and carrots. Is your mouth watering just reading this?


With fluffy marshmallows sandwiched between two delicate, yet rich and chocolatey cakes, whoopie pies never disappoint! For a dessert as simple as it is yummy, make 36 cake-like chocolate cookies. Cool slightly and transfer half the cookies onto a cooling rack. Flip the remaining cookies over and place a large marshmallow atop the flat side of the cookie. Place back into the oven for about 3 minutes, until the marshmallows begin to puff. Allow the marshmallow-topped cookies to sit for a couple minutes before topping with another cookie to make one delightful sandwich! You don’t have to wait before taste testing (We won’t tell)!

New Year’s Eve just wouldn’t be complete without a toast! Cheers with flutes of champagne-topped cocktails for a classy way to welcome 2017. For this delectable cocktail, blend together 4 fresh strawberries, 4 teaspoons of honey and 4 shots of orange-flavored liqueur into a food processor. Fill the chilled glasses halfway with your strawberry mixture and fill the rest with champagne.
