My love for Greek food knows no bounds. Seriously just search “Greek” and you’ll find quite a few Greek-inspired dishes on this blog. I could legit eat Greek food every single day, and I don’t think I would get tired of it.
Today, the #SundaySupper family is sharing last minute holiday recipes to help you (ummmm, and me) finalize your menu this week!
I will be honest and tell you even as a kid, I would scour cookbooks for hours trying to find the right recipe and menu for a shindig. Then those books turned into food magazines, and of course now I just scroll Pinterest and Google for inspiration. Sometimes, there is just too much out there, and I start to overthink it all.
So this year, I am keeping it simple. We always host Christmas Eve for my side of the family – which I love! Though my family, they will tell you if they like or don’t like something. They have zero qualms about it.
I do have to work for a bit on Christmas Eve, and so I need a few light bites before the main attraction. For sure, we’ll have Prosciutto + Mozzarella Skewers, since they can be made the night before (I’ll just wait to add the balsamic glaze until right before serving). I’ll also serve a platter of Spanakopita Bites; my family loves Greek eats as much as I do.
I’m not reinventing the wheel here with my little bites of Spinach Pie. But I am keeping it simple, and that’s what I need this week – an appetizer packed with flavor, that takes little to no time at all. I like to add a litttttle cream cheese to my spinach mixture to avoid dryness – there is nothing more disappointing than a dry Spinach Pie.
