This three ingredient Appetizers for a Crowd Recipe is quick and easy and everyone loves them. These are the perfect one bite appetizer to make for a New Years Party. Such festive colors and the flavors are perfect for holiday time. I made 24 Cranberry Brie Bites one night and then used up the remainder of the brie and cranberry sauce a few days later to make 24 for another event. There is no trick, these appetizers are super simple and there is no cooking outside of baking them for 15 minutes. The second time I made these, I prepped them about 30 minutes in advance, covered them and then baked them. Because it uses tubed crescent rolls, I would not assemble them too far in advance.
How to make Three Ingredient Appetizers For A Crowd
Simply roll out the tubed crescent rolls and roll them out slightly with a rolling pin. Then cut into 24 squares. I found a pizza cutter to be the perfect tool for this.
Cut off the rind of your brie round, and cut into small pieces. In a greased mini cupcake tin, add a square of crescent roll, a dollop of whole cranberry sauce and a piece of brie. That’s it!
Bake for about 15 minutes and you have a tray of inexpensive, and flavorful hot appetizers. While they may not look like much in the cupcake tray….
Plate them up with a few sprigs of Rosemary and if you have fresh cranberries throw some of them on the plate too.
Each cranberry brie bite is like a piece of heaven. The perfect no plate needed appetizer to serve this holiday season.
