Appetizer Recipes

Easy appetizer recipes to get the party started.

I'm always looking for great appetizer recipes.  Especially when I'm going to a party and the host says, "Just bring a starter dish!"  That sounds easy enough but sometimes you want to make something new and different.    Perhaps you are having a party yourself and are looking for an easy and interesting recipe to make.  I also find that many of these recipes make great snack recipes for after-school snacks or even just something to eat while watching a movie at home.

Whether your planning a party with friends, are asked to bring hors d'oeuvres to a party, or just want to make some snacks to watch TV or a ball game, the recipes listed below may come in handy.

Personally, I think these types of recipes can be the most time consuming part of any party.  They usually involve a lot of chopping and unusual ingredients.  I try to take the stress out hors d'oeuvres  by featuring easy to make recipes that feature common ingredients.  I've even included a section at the bottom where readers of this site have submitted their own favorite recipes!
