Among my memories of a reunion held on my farm are these savory meatballs a family member made. That's where I got this recipe that I now make for potlucks and get-togethers. It's so handy to transport and keep warm in a slow cooker, and it makes a great appetizer, too.
I was planning on bring veggies and dip to my grandson's graduation party, but I wanted to do something special. So I created a mini garden by arranging by corn, cherry tomatoes and other small vegetables on fa foam board. I was a big hit!—Barbara Wellner, Menominee, Michigan
Chock-full of color and lively flavor, this salsa makes a nice appetizer paired with tortilla chips. "It's great for parties because it's easy and delicious," notes Chris Behnke of Fruitland, Iowa. "My husband loves it."
"My grandmother came up with her own version of fried green tomatoes years ago. Our family loves it," says Melanie Chism of Coker, Alabama. "It's a traditional taste of the South that anyone anywhere can enjoy!"
AT HARVEST PARTIES, fall festivals or any autumn event, the flavorful fellow here will raise a crop of smiles! To stuff this savory appetizer full of good taste, our Test Kitchen cooks shaped a scarecrow using red peppers, carrots, broccoli and lots of other fresh veggies. Since you can make the crust with refrigerated dough and quickly prepare a cream cheese spread to put on top, you'll be ready to form your own colorful character in no time.
Here's a deliciously different sandwich. It's yummy warm from the oven or off the grill at a cookout. The cheesy filling is complemented by a mix of garden-fresh ingredients and crusty bread. I usually serve it with a salad and onion rings.
Over the many years I've been cooking, I've had my share of flops, but these well-seasoned chicken wings have never failed my. Crisp and cheesy, they're outstanding as an appetizer and always draws a crowd.
As soon as my husband tasted this tantalizing dip at a party, he suggested I get the recipe...not knowing I'd already asked the hostess for it! Attractive and zesty, it's one of my most popular appetizers.
