We recommend a variety of appetizers, and here are 5 quick, easy, and tasty options! Best of all, you can invite friends or family to enjoy your creations!

#1: Classic Cheeseball

This is the throwback recipe that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. It’s a ball of cheese, so it’s pretty easy to see why this one has stuck around for decades. Plus, you can serve it with crackers, which are both easy to find and easy to munch on. Another bonus: there may be 10 ingredients, but you have to actually cook 0 of them.

#2: Cowboy Caviar

Step aside, salsa! There’s a new tortilla chip dip in town, and it’s fresh, bright, and easy to make. This blend of corn, black beans, tomatoes, avocados, and some seasoning elements is a crowd-pleaser and shows that you put some effort into your appetizer. Plus, you end up chopping only 4 things, and all the rest just needs to be measured or drained from a can. Another perk: it’s vegan friendly so everyone can enjoy.

#3: Italian Stuffed Mushrooms

If you’re willing to put in a smidge more time, this is a simple but tasty dish that does involve a skillet and the oven. There are less than 10 ingredients and only 5 steps between you and these delicious bites. Plus, they don’t involve a chip, dip, or cracker, so they’re likely to impress guests with their creativity.

#4: Berry Fruit Bruschetta

This is a great appetizer to change things up from endless meat and cheese-related items. Grab yourself some fresh berries and bread to make this tasty party-time treat. If you find yourself missing that cheese element, no need! You can include a fruit-friendly cheese to top it off. It also is a cold recipe, so you don’t have to monitor an oven, stove, or even crockpot.

#5: Star Puffs

If you’re looking for supremely easy, this is the recipe for you! You need a star-shaped cookie cutter, a cheese of your choice, and some puff pastry. That’s it.
