My first appetizer are Slow Cooker Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs, smothered with marinara sauce and grated Parmesan. So good that I made an extra batch to enjoy during the week.

Holiday party planning can be stressful so I’m all about quick and easy appetizers that can also be show stoppers. Baked brie is one of my go-tos because it’s super easy to make, and you can easily switch it up for any season. While the brie bakes up in the oven (only takes 10 minutes!), create the wine soaked blueberries by adding blueberries, red wine, and sugar to a small saucepan. I like to also treat myself to a glass of wine while I’m cooking in the kitchen, it is afterward the holidays!

The H‑E‑B Soft Ripened Brie Cheese Wheel is perfect for baked brie recipes! Just remove from packaging and place on a parchment paper, and bake until bubbly.

Serve with your favorite sliced bread, mini toasts, and chips. I’ve been loving these Stonefire Naan Crisps that are perfect for scooping up that ooey gooey brie.
