I love holiday parties. However, I used to stress out about them and spend my time at the party cooking and stressing about getting the food and drinks out to everybody. However, now I alway try to have easy appetizers, like this 4-ingredient Pepperoncini Gruyere Cocktail Crostini, that I can pop in the oven for 5 minutes and serve.
To make these Pepperoncini Gruyere Cocktail Crostini all you need is a baguette, gruyere cheese, Hillshire Farm Cocktail Lit’l Smokies smoked sausages and pepperoncini peppers.
I buy the 3-pound package of the Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies smoked sausages and use 1 lb for these Pepperoncini Gruyere Cocktail Crostini and then place the remaining Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies smoked sausages in a slow cooker with some barbecue sauce for an easy self-serve appetizer.
I love stretching a dollar and getting multiple recipes out of a single package of Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies smoked sausages. It is so easy to pick some up at Sam’s Club where you can find everything you need for your holiday party. One-stop shopping saves so much time.
For the party, your guests will love these Pepperoncini Gruyere Cocktail Crostini with a rustic crostini made with a French baguette, melted gruyere, pepperoncini peppers, and the Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies smoked sausages. They are elegant little bites that are full of flavor!
The hardest part is not eating all of them yourself before getting them out on the table. They are that good!
With the Pepperoncini Gruyere Cocktail Crostini and the Slow Cooker Barbecue Smokies, half your menu is complete with only one package of Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies smoked sausages. Then you can relax and enjoy the party spending time visiting with guests instead of spending your time in the kitchen.
