Savory Holiday Party Ideas with Bumble Bee

Bumble Bee

Holiday season is just around the corner, so here are some easy ideas that will make you look like a star in the kitchen, without breaking a sweat.

These surprisingly simple, undeniably flavorful recipes will have everyone enjoying the night and savoring every last bite that comes out of your kitchen. Let's get started!

Tuna Meatballs.

Mix Bumble Bee tuna with breadcrumbs, feta cheese, and a pinch of lemon juice. Shape the meatballs, sauté them for one minute in a hot pan with olive oil, and serve over fresh tomato sauce. You can also make sliders for a fun holiday variation.

Tuna Tapas with piquillo peppers.
Mix Bumble Bee tuna with olive oil, a touch of garlic, and white onion (or red onion, chopped very small) in a bowl. Add a touch of sherry vinegar to taste. Leave the mixture in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. When serving, place a piece of jarred piquillo pepper over a slice of fresh bread and top with the already marinated tuna. These tapas make your table look great and, trust me, you won't have any leftovers.

Crab Pita Pizza.
In a bowl, combine whipped cream cheese (or goat cheese) with a pinch of garlic, salt and pepper, and lemon zest. Spread the cheese on top of the pita, add Bumble Bee crab, mozzarella cheese, and cilantro. Consider arugula or pesto sauce in place of cilantro. Either way, you can't go wrong. It tastes so good!

Crab and Mushroom Pasta in a Pumpkin Sauce.
This dish goes perfect with white wine. Sauté sliced garlic, crab and fresh mushrooms in olive oil for one minute. Add a splash of white wine (can even be the glass you're enjoying while cooking), salt and pepper, and sauté for one more minute. Meanwhile, boil sweet pumpkin in vegetable or chicken broth and, once cooked, liquefy in a blender. Season the mix with salt and pepper, and then add to the cooked pasta with the mushrooms in wine sauce. It's perfect as a cold appetizer or served warm at your Thanksgiving or Holiday dinners.

Tuna Antipasto.
This one is extra simple. All you have to do is sauté garlic, onion, green and red bell peppers in olive oil until onion is translucent. Add the tuna, mushrooms, a pinch of tomato paste, ketchup and Worcestershire sauce like my mom does every Christmas and cook covered for ten minutes. Enjoy on top of crackers or bread and give everyone at your party something to talk about!

Bumble Bee

Potato Salad.
Boil potatoes and mix Bumble Bee tuna with mayonnaise, cooked carrots and sweet peas, preserved (jarred) red peppers, a bit of lemon juice and some cilantro or parsley. In my country, people like to add chopped apple in small pieces, boiled eggs and olives as well. I'll leave that up to you if you're feeling creative!
