I',m thinking of serving chopped smoked salmon stuffed cherry tomatoes w/ an onion, jalapeno, cream cheese filling, garnish w dill.

Devilled Eggs !! Never goes out of style.

Chix WIngs. Choose a new or different Sauce. It's the only way I get to keep sneaking them onto the menu.

At our house Jr insists he has never Seen nor tasted pickled herring. I will have to Point out the serving dish that is on our buffet table Every New Years Day that has been served Every Year of his life. He and I will have a toast and a taste on a triscuit.

Ahh.... food apps.

I am such an idiot. I read the title and opening post and was thinking smartphone apps. I just couldn't imagine what purpose a New Years Eve "app" would serve. Would it count down to midnight? Would it remind you of your New Years resolutions?

My favorite thing to serve on New years eve is a sliced ham, small rolls and mayo, mustard and sliced pickles - folks can make their own sammies and it's easy.

I had to tell Stirling why I was laughing. Then I had to explain what a food app is.

I call them appys and we always go with:

Traditionally,

Shrimp cocktail
Marinated herring
Champagne

Not sure what else.

We usually just do crackers, cheese, meat, etc. at home. This year we are going to our church's "New Year's Rockin' Eve" and are supposed to bring finger foods. I will be bringing fried mushrooms.

I thought the same thing, Steve. I even went as far as to look at what forum this was under and ask myself, There's an app for appetizers?
I've only seen them referred to as appy's, also.

Not the best pic, but you get the idea. Crab stuffed cucumbers. Very refreshing and good for a seafood fix. If I recall, there was crab, green onion, lime juice/zest, celery and EVOO.

You are not alone Steve. I thought the same thing and was thinking how grateful I am having a simple phone that does nothing but let me make phone calls.

How about cheese fondu? Serve with variety of bread cubes, fresh pears, apples, crisp veggies, cubes of salami, ham, etc. We often have a fondu-like dip made of anchovies, olive oil, butter, and lots of garlic. It is served hot as a dip for raw, crisp veggies and Italian/French bread. Let us know what you decide to serve and Happy New Year!

The traditional supper for NYE in Denmark is cod, 'cause by NYE you have eaten way too much rich food.

I like the idea of fondue with nice refreshing pears, apples, and any cold fruits I could find it sounds yummy. We had fondue Christmas Eve but just if sourdough bred. This idea just might get a tryout the 31st.
Thanks.

YUM! Love the crab/lime/cuke combo, Thank you.

Thank you for all the ideas. I'm always looking for unique small bites anytime of the year.

I came across a few new ideas that I wanted to share with you, as well.

Pears slices smeared w/ goat cheese & sprinkled w/ pistachios &
cranberries
pears with goat cheese & pistachios keep it skinny

Endive boats filled w/ gooat cheese, walnuts, & honey, & garnished w/ dill.
endive boats keep it skinny

Thanks again, & have a healthy happy New Year.

If I had my way, I'd skip dinner and pig out on shrimps with cocktail sauce, lobster salad, octopus salad, fried calamari, clams casino, and Chinese spare ribs. But considering it's our wedding anniversary the boss dictates that we eat out. The $150+ per couple spent on mediocre restaurant food would buy a lot of chow and beverages for a house party.

What a shame that you have to go out. I hate going out on NYE. I only go out if I can walk to wherever.

My wife and her girlfriend have me bullied. Having to go out (and do the driving) does drastically curtail my consumption of liquid refreshments but I still feel washed out on New Year's day.
Oh to be young again
