Behind every great hostess is a trick up their sleeve (at least this is what I tell myself), and these two simple, 5 Minute hors d’oeuvres with potato chips, Kettle Brand to be exact, are definitely a good trick to have on hand during the holidays. Why? Because half of the ingredients you can toss in a bowl since everyone loves kettle chips, and the other half you can dress to impress like these smoked salmon cream cheese and blackberry feta crisps.
Click through for the full recipe for each one, but trust me when I tell you they really only take five minutes, all you have to do is assemble!
Be sure to use kettle chips for these recipes and serve immediately for sturdiness! Kettle chips don’t fall apart or get soggy as quickly as other chips, that way they stay fresh longer just in case guests are slow to make their way to the snack table.
