With only six days to go I’m sure you’ve all planned what you’re eating on Christmas Day? I don’t know about you but I cannot wait for those pigs in blankets (my all time favourite thing) and those sausage stuffing balls (AMAZING).

That’s why today’s post is focused on New Year’s party food because there’s still some food planning to be done in between last minute Christmas shopping! This appetizer is so simple and is absolutely delicious, it can be made ahead of schedule which gives you plenty time to get ready for the bells with a glass of bubbly.

If you’ve never tried fried gnocchi then you need to make it a thing, like your new favourite thing! Instead of boiling the gnocchi they are fried with a little olive oil, rosemary and salt until golden and crispy. Honestly they are SO delicious this way, like little crispy roast potatoes only BETTER!

To make these little appetizers I simply add one fried gnocchi to cocktail sticks then continue to make a stack with good quality prosciutto crudo, small slices of pecorino cheese (soft rather than hard) and an olive.

You can make as many or as little as you want of these fried gnocchi appetizers and also change it up with leftover meats and cheeses you have in your fridge from over Christmas.

    Instead of doing a buffet for NYE, I always do one on Christmas Eve and these babies are definitely going to be a part of it! I’ve never, ever heard of this flavour combo before. But now you’ve introduced me to it, I can’t wait to give it a try!

    I am definitely in search of new appetizers this time of year! I am actually on app duty for Christmas dinner this year haha so these cute little toothpick bites would be the perfect addition to the dinner table. I especially love that they only have 5 ingredients!
