You can add the toppings prior to baking, or after, depending on the flavoring you’re wanting for your appetizer. Baked brie is served with sliced baguette pieces for dipping, crackers, or celery and carrot sticks.

Dip the bread in the mixture of olive oil and balsamic for a savory bread appetizer.

Spinach is added to the pan and wilts as it cooks. Once it’s done cooking, remove it from it from the heat source.

Cream cheese is mixed together with sour cream, mayo, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and a little hot sauce.

Cooked spinach is added to the cream cheese mixture along with chopped up artichoke hearts.

The dip is finished baking when the cheese begins to brown and bubble.

You can make different types of sandwiches for a winter baby shower such as:

  • ham and cheese

Kids will appreciate the unusual presentation, and adults will appreciate the ease of cooking.
