In many homes, Christmas dinner is a big production, probably just after Thanksgiving on the list of Hectic Family Dinners That Make You Drink A Bottle Of Wine Before 6 p.m. (this is actually an official list). So it goes without saying that in the midst of the craziness of preparation and cooking, it's nice to have something to make that is easy and fast, while still being delicious. It's hard to find a main course that looks elaborate but is also very simple, so this is where appetizers come in.

I've seen a lot of holiday appetizer ideas on Pinterest that look quite impressive, but also just a little bit insane. Options like breaded Brussels sprouts (not a full Brussels sprout, but a sprout that's actually picked apart with each little piece individually breaded) come to mind. In the words of a famous YouTube star, "Ain't nobody got time for that." Especially when "that" is happening while you're also making five other dishes and trying to keep your house/apartment relatively presentable.

If you need some ideas for holiday dinner appetizers that are delicious, pleasing to the eye, and stress-free, you've come to the right place. Here are 15 easy holiday appetizer recipes that will keep you and your guests happy.
