New Year’s Eve is a time to celebrate, not to spend in the kitchen. It’s also a night to pull out the stops and live a little as you ring in the new year. These recipes deliver maximum elegance for minimal effort, so you can save your energy for midnight.
Festive green asparagus is woven with everyone’s favorite – bacon – and skewered in place. Chef’s tip: Be sure to soak your skewers so you don’t char them on the grill.
Take these favorites from picnic fare to black tie affair with decadent crab stuffing. Chef’s tip: Allow time to let the finished dish cool for 30 minutes in the refrigerator before serving.
Sweet, sour and savory meatballs are simple to make with only five ingredients and a total prep time of ten minutes. Chef’s tip: Skip the garnish and put the finished meatballs in a slow cooker on low for guests to serve themselves.
