Christmas is on the horizon, and if you feel like your holiday spread is missing just a little something, this Meatless Monday recipe may just be the dish that completes it. Food Network Magazine's  Eggplant Ricotta Bites (pictured above) are the perfect last-minute appetizer addition, being as delectable as they are simple to make. Taking only 35 minutes to prepare, these crispy, savory treats won't cause you any added hosting stress, either.

And, if you were worried about a proper holiday presentation, fear not. These bites are seasonally colored in a snowlike white from the ricotta spread, a vibrant red from the diced plum tomatoes and a festive green from the fresh basil topping.
