From appetizers, to mains, to desserts and midnight snacks, the holiday meal may be the biggest (and longest) of the entire year. Here at Abbey’s Kitchen, we like to keep the holidays going on for as long as possible, from Christmas morning ‘til the clock strikes midnight. And the best way to do that without tapping out at turkey is Christmas appetizers on appetizers on appetizers.
