Appetizer Recipes

These recipes for appetizers will definitely get the party started.

From dips to chicken wings to brunch-friendly mini quiche to chips and salsa, and of course meatballs, these appetizer recipe ideas are ideal for if you’re hosting or assigned to bring a snack to a potluck.

If you’re in a hurry and need fast appetizer recipes, many require zero cooking (including Mini Cheese Balls, Ham Roll Ups, Copycat Chipotle Guacamole, and an Antipasto Platter). Or hit the “easy” button: my slow cooker appetizers (like Crockpot Meatballs with Grape Jelly Sauce, 2-Ingredient Barbecue Little Smokies, and Buffalo Chicken Dip) allow you to set and forget.
