Guests will love these oyster-and-maple-bacon-topped deviled eggs.
New Year's Eve is just around the corner. We can't think of a more perfect way to ring in 2014 than indulging in good food and some bubbly with loved ones, so we've come up with a few appetizers inspired by some of our favorite bites in Houston.

Check out these Restaurant-Inspired New Year's Eve Hors d'Oeuvres:

Fried Oyster-Topped Deviled Eggs
The Inspiration: BRC Gastropub

Deviled eggs are good. But do you know what's better? Deviled eggs topped with fried oysters and maple bacon. We know that now thanks to BRC Gastropub.

Make this recipe, then top each egg with a hunk of maple syrup-glazed bacon. The oysters scream class while the bacon screams you're drunk. It's New Year's Eve in an nuteggshell.

You'll want to try these curried lamb meatballs.
Miniature Vindaloo Meatballs
The Inspiration: Underbelly

Forget Swedish meatballs! Try making Indian-style lamb meatballs à la Underbelly instead.

We like these miniature lamb kofta meatballs in coconut-curry gravy. Or try these curried meatballs in a spiced red wine tomato sauce.

Serve them on a platter with toothpicks or in a bowl topped with chopped cilantro, chives or scallions.

And don't forget the hot pita bread.

Underbelly gets theirs from the nearby Aladdin Mediterranean Cuisine. We think you should, too.
