10 Best Appetizers for a Dinner Party 

In selecting the appetizers for your dinner party, there a couple of things I would suggest you consider. Obviously I want the appetizers to be tasty, but I have two other considerations. I want to be able to make them in advance so they don't interfere with my cooking of the main course. I also prefer appetizers that can be easily eaten by a guest holding a glass of wine. That means nothing that requires a plate and a fork, (even if you do want to show off your Ian Wilson Designs Flatware) and nothing that needs to be cut. Finally, I make sure not to have too many. It can be all too easy for the guests to be feel distracted upon arriving and meeting the others, and then eat enough to ruin their appetites for the main course.


So with all that, here are my 10 favorite appetizers to start a dinner party:

  1. Italian Stuffed Mushrooms         Betty Crocker

  1. Antipasti Bites      Family Fresh Meals



3) Spanish Artichoke Zucchini Bites        Delish


  1. Bacon Apple Crostini         Delish


  1. Bruschetta                Alyssa Rivers
