There are times that appetizers are the way to go! In fact, our wedding reception was a “Cocktail Reception”, so I have done a whole bunch of research on how to feed a crowd with finger food! Here are 20 Easy Appetizers that I use time and time again to keep the party going and hungry bellies filled!
20 Easy Appetizers – your blueprint for party success!
My mother served these all the time! They are super easy to assemble and can be made a day ahead! They’re sweet, salty and an easy to pick up finger good. A little time in the oven and they’re ready to go, especially if you’ve prepped ahead of time! These can also be served cold. Regardless, the prep can be up to a day prior! WIN.
Sandy at Simply Happy Foodie shared this Classic Hummus Recipe. Making this ahead only makes it better! Serve this with cut up veggies, pita bread, or both and watch it be devoured by your guests!
Everyone needs a good hummus recipe on hand!

I have recently found Matthew at Plating Pixels. What a great website. Love. It. Matthew makes easy and healthy recipes with simple ingredients! He has shared TWO recipes with us, and boy are we lucky he did!!

Having a Vegan recipe or two in your recipe box is important to do. Everyone has a vegan friend or two if they aren’t vegan themselves. Vegan Huggs is a great resources for these recipes! For this post, Melissa shared her Vegan Spinach Artichoke Hearts – and I don’t believe you need to be vegan to love them!
How delectable do these artichoke appetizers look??
