Bite Into the Holidays
For holiday entertaining, bite-sized apps are ideal. This allows guests to enjoy old favorites and new dishes. Keep Kikkoman soy sauce and panko on hand to add flavor and crunch to your cooking. Soy sauce is especially good for moistening and enhancing the flavor of meat. Here are a few recipes to kikk off your holiday season!
- When sweet and spicy team up, your taste buds are in for a treat. When it comes to these Honey Glazed Holiday Appetizers, honey and our Teriyaki Baste and Glaze, give smoked cocktail sausages a sweet sauce with a kick of spice. Prepare these in the slow cooker to keep warm throughout your party.
- Another savory meat option is Hoisin Chicken Sliders. Sweet marinated chicken topped with a crunchy slaw on a fresh roll will have guests coming back for seconds. This dish can also be prepared in the slow cooker. When preparing, make sure chicken is fully covered in Hoisin sauce. Tip: for the slaw, combine red cabbage, jicama and carrots with our Lime Ponzu sauce. The citrus tang pairs well with the chicken sliders.
- Have a ball! A meatball that is. Our Teriyaki Meatball Appetizers will tantalize your taste buds. With onion, panko, teriyaki sauce and ground beef, Kikkoman’s meatballs have an edge. The panko adds a crunch and texture that breadcrumbs lack.
- Another dish improved by our Panko is Crunchy Crab Cakes. Unlike other recipes that use crackers or breadcrumbs, the panko flakes will not soak up the oil and become greasy. Serve hot and consider whipping up a simple aioli to top it off.
