I love that dip lantana posted! Sounds like your dept. needs to offset all that sweet with something savory. I grew up inhaling those Bisquick sausage cheese balls lantana suggested around the holidays. To my underage palate, I always like them better hot/warm. They tended to be greasy when they were room temp/cold. But I was around people who used homemade sausage, so maybe it was the quality of the sausage.
How about the easy Cranberry Feta rolls Sheila in MD posted a few years back? Very festive and tasty if you use the red or green tortillas.
One of our local news shows did a version of this just this week, using only cream cheese, green onion, nuts, the Craisins and BACON!
Maybe pair with some savory nuts? Not that that's affordable these days, whew!!! Happy open-housing!
