I love the holiday season, but New Year’s Eve always has a special place in my heart. There’s nothing better than dressing up in sequins, being with my friends while relishing champagne, and yelling “Cheers!” to the endless possibilities of an upcoming new year.
New Year’s Eve is a really fun holiday for entertaining. The star of New Year’s Eve are the appetizers. What I love about New Year’s Eve appetizers is that there are no set expectations with the menu. You can go as fancy or casual with the menu as you prefer. If you’re like me, you love giving your guests plenty of options by including appetizers that are on a little bit of the heavier side. These catfish BLT sliders are really going to impress your guests. When making these sliders, make sure to purchase U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish. In this recipe, U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish really takes this recipe to the next level.
I enjoy cooking with this particular catfish because it’s low in calories and packed with lean protein, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals.When cooking with U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish, you’ll appreciate that it’s very versatile, sustainable, and healthy. The key to this slider and any sandwich is layering. When layering your slider, put the proteins at the bottom of the sandwich. Crunchy toppings and veggies work best at the top. Prior to your New Year’s Eve party, be sure to assemble the sliders as close to serving as possible. #USCatfish
