Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!
I wanted to pop in real quick and share a super easy appetizer for you guys to serve up if you’re looking for last minute ideas for Christmas or are already planning ahead to New Years.
Your friends and family will think you’re so fancy if you serve this filet mignon wrapped asparagus to them, but it’s so easy to make so you’ll have them fooled!
Pretty presentation is so important when you’re serving finger foods and you should try to always make things as easy to grab with one hand as possible, since most of the time someone will have a drink or small plate in their hand.
I love serving these filet wrapped asparagus as little packets tied with a chive ribbon. It’s so pretty and festive!
Perfect for any holiday get together. 🙂
You can definitely do this with an assortment of meats, but today I chose to do filet because for the holidays I love to go all out.
It’s actually not terribly expensive either since you’re slicing the filet thin. This makes about 15 little packets.
I cook the filet to a nice medium rare, and then set aside to cool. The meat is so tender and juicy and compliments the asparagus perfectly.
But by adding a little dollop of horseradish cream sauce on top, it sends this little finger food over the edge and has all the flavors of the holidays for me. 🙂
Here’s how to make it…
I hope you all have a lovely weekend filled with good food, fun and laughter!
