6 easy appetizers to make for your next party or barbecue.
1. Mini Cheese Balls on a Stick
This has been my most repinned appetizer! Everyone loves these and you can customize them by changing the type of cheese or nuts you use. These mini cheese balls can be made well ahead of time too. Just put the pretzel in right before serving.
2. Fig and Goat Cheese Crostini
Surprisingly fabulous! Hints of orange flavour in the fig paste that you can make a few days before you need it. I’ve frozen the fig paste so it’s ready for last-minute appies, although it will last for a week or more in the fridge.
3. Smoked Salmon Cucumber Appies
Ready in less than 10 minutes. Easiest appy ever.
4. Caramelized Onion, Apple and Cheese Crostini
Not your everyday grilled cheese! Caramelized onions, and warm sweet apples all smothered in melted cheese. So good!
5. Roasted Grape and Goat Cheese Crostini
Who ever heard of roasting grapes? Sooooo good! Serve on goat cheese and drizzle with honey. A party favourite.
6. Mediterranean Romesco Sauce Tapas
This sauce takes a little more time (only if you are roasting your own peppers) but the heavenly smells wafting from your kitchen make the effort totally worthwhile! This Romesco Sauce can be made well in advance. Toss it with pasta too!
