New Year's Eve Appetizers | www.tasteandtellblog.com
Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms * BBQ Chicken Dip
Cucumber Dill Toasties * 7 Layer Chili Dog Dip

 
Do you have plans for New Year’s Eve yet?

Usually, my family all gets together and we rent a cabin. It’s a fun time, laying around in our jammies for a few days, eating lots of food, and playing lots of games. I seriously look forward to it every year. Unfortunately, this year, we weren’t able to find a cabin, so our plans have changed. We will still all be getting together, but just not for the whole weekend, and not in the mountains somewhere.

One thing that will not change, though, is our appetizer tradition. Every New Year’s Eve, we all just bring a few appetizers instead of having a meal. It works, not only because it is easier, but because then we can have an excuse to eat all night long! :)

If you are looking for a way to have an easy, stress-free New Year’s Eve, Sam’s Club is there for you. Whether you are looking for fresh food items or ready-made appetizers or gourmet baked goods, they have you covered. Above are some of the appetizers I’m thinking of bringing to our family party, and Sam’s Club is a great place to pick up the ingredients to make these delicious appetizers. In fact, for the stuffed mushrooms, the mushrooms from Sam’s Club are almost a must because they are so big, and you just can’t find great mushrooms like that at the normal grocery store!
 

 
And one I love to do is to browse the aisles at Sam’s Club to check out all of the ready made foods they have. The cream puffs are always a favorite of mine. Some other great choices would be the Artisan Fresh Artichoke Dip – a super easy heat and serve dip – or the Daily Chef Chicken and Bacon Bruschetta that just needs to be popped into the oven. You can’t go wrong with Cheesecake Factory Cheesecake, either! And don’t forget the tableware items – all to help you create the perfect table. They have the Bella Professional Triple Slow Cooker which is great for cooking and serving 3 different dishes simultaneously, or the Tiered Buffet Server.

Sam’s Club is there to help you save time with your New Year preparations. Did you know that they also have a 200% satisfaction guarantee on fresh meats, crisp produce, savory seafood and gourmet-to-go bakery items? You can always feel good about the quality of food that you are serving your friends and family.

    All our friends get together at our house, bring a dish and we ring in the new year, with all our small children, and sparkling cider. Staying in and having everyone bring a dish saves on what could be a very expensive night out. Happy New year to you and yours!

    I’ve tried a couple of these Sam’s products already. I love to go to Sam’s and just browse…like you….looking at all the new “stuff”. We buy their canned chicken and make chicken salad with it. We tasted the chicken salad at the store…and now won’t be without some cans in my cupboard. I’ll have to try the mushrooms.
    Happy New Year!

    I love those cream puffs from Sams too. We gave up our membership recently and I’m really missing it. Although we did sneak in recently to eat at their snack bar…love that cheap pizza and hot dogs… :)

  4. danielle says:

    Keep it local and homemade

  5. Kristin says:

    I love dressing up ready made food….with just a few simple touches you can spruce up almost anything! And….the people eating eat never knew it came from a box!

  6. Barbara says:

    I stock my freezer during the last quarter of the year so I am prepared for the holidays without a big dollar outlay all at once. Sam’s has great items for preparing this way.

  7. cindi says:

    I ‘try’ to plan ahead and purchase items on sale during Dec for holiday entertaining. And adding a few fresh ingredients to prepared items kicks everything up a notch.

  8. Tory E says:

    I love SAM’S, I’ve had the Cream Puffs, love their produce and Meat and Seafood section. Heck not much I don’t love about SAM’S.

  11. Margaret says:

    I buy things when they are on sale and store them until the big day!

  12. Katie Rose says:

    We buy in bulk so that we spend less, and we tend to keep it simple.

  13. Shanna says:

    I buy in bulk and definitely stock up when there’s sales!

  14. Denise O says:

    Purchasing item on sale and freezing/storing them until needed helps up be prepared for whatever comes our way, without stressing about it.

  15. Venetrise says:

    We have a huge family and to save on food costs, we each contribute to the holiday meals. That way the burden is not on one person, plus we get to have the family classics.

  16. Brady says:

    SAMs club taught me how to entertain as an adult while working at my first job out of college as a gallery manager-in charge of impressing and feeding hundreds of art lovers (who know how to party!) at art openings, for little cost. They have the items that take your party food to the next level. Cream puffs, the tray brownies cut up taste homemade, and other money saving items, as well as using the big awesome cheeses (like Brie and pecorino) they have to let your guests know that you know what you are doing!

  17. Jan R says:

    I always purchase what’s on sale.

  18. Ashley_M says:

    I try to plan what I am serving based on what is on sale. Also everyone is responsible for part of the meal.

  19. carmel says:

    I miss having a Sam’s Club near to where I live now (coast of SE Georgia) I used to go there every week to get items for the cafe my hubs & I owned in California. Now I just try to make everything I think my sons and hubs might want to eat.

  20. Lisa s says:

    Everyone contributes which helps to keep costs down, including champagne. Happy New Year!

  21. We don’t eat out (not during the holidays, or ever, really!) Ever since having our daughter, we eat at home. It’s more enjoyable for all parties involved (usually) but let’s face it…it’s wayyyy cheaper to eat at home!

  22. Natalie S says:

    I focus on make ahead meals that require few ingredients that aren’t too costly!

  23. i love stocking up on bulk items!

  24. I love to use shortcuts to make delicious mealssometimes-who doesn’t? Sam’s club makes it easy to entertain during the holidays, for a few or even a whole crowd!!

  25. melanie says:

    I look for sales and keep my menu simple.

  26. Debbi R says:

    I use coupons and look for sales and shop at Sam’s

  27. tiffany says:

    I try to follow the couponing blogs and maximize my coupons with what is on sale for the week. And then I plan my meals around that.

  28. Jen L says:

    I shop sales and buy in bulk and then freeze for future use

  29. Michelle Wright says:

  32. Susan C says:

    Potluck – and using coupons, shopping sales for my party supplies.

  33. Julia C says:

    Meal plan so that I am sure to use all the ingredients before they go bad.

  34. van pham says:

    Actually just went to Sam’s Clube yesterday to get my ingredients for pigs in a blanket but if not I would have certainly picked up their spankopita. One of the things my friends ask for over and over from Sam’s Club. But I never paid attention to their mushrooms so I think I will need to be on the look out next time for those.

  35. Chantal H. says:

    Less can be more! I use less ingredients so I can spend some on the ingredients I do use, to make sure they’re extra good, fresh, etc.
