They c an be mild or spicy, hot or cold, made with meat or vegetarian style, and in many cases require little or no refrigeration.

Appetizer Recipes ▼

Baked Crostini
Baked Crostini (also sometimes referred to as Bruschetta or Canapé when topped with savory foods) are miniature slices of toasted (or baked) bread, typically made from baguettes (long, thin loaves of French bread). Served as an appetizer, they can be used as a base for an endless variety of food toppings or as a cracker-style snack for dips. Crostini are wonderful for social events, holidays, parties or anytime snacking.
Basil Meatballs
This easy meatball recipe features cocktail meatballs made with a combination of lean ground beef and ground pork, some Holland Rusk toast crumbs soaked in water and whipping cream, along with a some fresh basil leaves (or dried basil), garlic powder, cayenne pepper and salt and pepper. Basil Meatballs may also be made with other ground meats, and may be made as a main course with pasta and pasta sauce.
Black Bean and Corn Salsa
Black Bean and Corn Salsa is a vibrant and healthy salsa recipe that tastes delicious with Tortilla Chips, Crostini or other crunchy dipping snacks. While most salsa recipes contain tomatoes and/or tomato sauce, onion and cilantro, this festive salsa recipe combines black beans, kernel corn, tomatoes, red bell pepper, diced green chiles and fresh chopped cilantro, giving it unique and delightful flavor and texture, not to mention vibrant color!
Broccoli Puffs
This Broccoli Puff recipe features puffy random-shaped hand-size morsels made with a quick and easy dough filled with finely chopped broccoli florets and a hint of hot pepper sauce. These broccoli appetizers are deep-fried, giving them a light and crispy outer shell and a light and fluffy interior. Broccoli Puffs are served warm with a mildly creamy, tangy dipping sauce that gets its zing from lemon juice, horseradish and hot pepper sauce.
Broccoli with Hollandaise Sauce
Broccoli with Hollandaise Sauce can be served as a side dish or as an elegant appetizer for parties and events, and is a delicious way to add flavor and texture to this popular vegetable. The easy Hollandaise Sauce recipe is made with lightly seasoned egg yolks and butter briefly cooked together over low heat, and is flavored with a hint of lemon, giving the perfect complimentary flavor to crisp-tender broccoli florets.
Broiled Crostini
Broiled Crostini (small toasted slices of bread used for topping with various ingredients to be served as appetizers) produces a different result than Baked Crostini, though both can be used for the same purpose. With Broiled Crostini, the slices of bread are cooked more quickly under direct heat, and the crunchiness tends to be contained more on the surface of the bread, while the chewiness is still retained on the inside.
