Appetizer Recipes

I’ve shared a number of appetizer recipes here on my site and as many of you know, I like to have a lot of fun with them. This is a compilation of some of my favorite ones to date.  Some are a little more elegant than others, some are easy, and some involve a little more effort.  All of them are delicious. These are sure to be a hit at your New Year’s Eve party, or any party throughout the year. Enjoy!

  1. Asian-style Steak and Veggie Rolls
  2. Salmon and Cucumber Bites with Capers and Dill
  3. Meatballs with Panko and Feta Cheese (make these appetizer size so they’re finger-food friendly)
  4. Steamed Dumplings with Dipping Sauce
  5. Fire Roasted Baba Ganoush
  6. Chicken Liver Pate’ with Bourbon
  7. Bloody Mary Shrimp
  8. Mini Vegetable Spring Rolls with Tahini Dipping Sauce
  9. Spicy Honey Sesame Wings
  10. Roasted Red Pepper Dip Spread (perfect for crostini or bruschetta)
  11. Hot Cherry Peppers Stuffed with Proscuitto and Provolone

I know I said I’d give you ten recipes but my stuffed cherry peppers are legendary with friends and family, so I couldn’t leave them out. Here are the photos of the appetizer recipes above, in order:
