    I make my own meatballs. One year I had to come up with a quick appetizer to take to work. I use icecream scoops to make my meatballs. I didn't have but 1 1/2 #s of ground beef. I had a frozen pizza dough in the fridge. Made my meatballs (I also add sausage w/o sage (allergies). Put all the meatballs (using small scoop; tsp works fine) on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. In the oven for about 20 mins at 350. Rolled out the pizza dough and used cookie cutter. I did sprinkle the dough with grated the dryer parmesan grated cheese. After the meatballs were done, I tossed them into pizza sauce. Then place one meatball on cookie size pizza dough, folded over and pinched the edges. You can either put into the oven for about 10 minutes and reheat later or heat up before the party. Sprinkle with more cheese before serving. This can be made a day or two ahead of time also.

    So many ideas. I do veg pizza, fruit pizza, Lefse, chex Mix, 7 layer salad, apple cider w/red hots in it - you can serve this hot or cold. I also Use a mix from tastefully Simple - Beer Bread Mix (recipe is on box then serve with a dip. really good. They say you can use soda instead of beer but it is not as good and I am not a beer drinker and can not taste the beer. Do a cheese, sausage and cracker plate.

    It's a dip using ham to use with what ever kind of crackers.

    1 1/2 cups finely chopped ham, 2 tbsp. dijon mustard, 1 tbsp. pickle relish, 1/2 cup finely chopped peanuts

    grapes coated in herbed cream cheese and rolled in diced almond slices.. shrimp and cocktail sauce endlessly easy and always inhaled. going crazy make a cream cheese mixed with a bit of worchestershire sauce 2 tsps. , diced green onions, garlic powder.. make a ball coat it with bay shrimp the tiny ones and then pour red cocktail sauce over and serve with crackers..

    bacon wrapped waterchestnuts (have recipe its incredibly simple) and then there are.. oh go with what you like to smunch on.. and be happy and they will be well loved I think. go to pinterest for appetizers you will find tons.

    I make lean ground turkey meatballs, then dip in an oriental sauce (teriyaki, tempura, or whatever is on hand). Bake on a cookie sheet and serve. Very good warm or cool, freezes well for a quickie meal or add into chicken broth with scallions. I rarely cook so multi-use foods work best for me.

    We do a sausage /cheese dip made in a crock pot, it makes a big batch and everyone loves it.Also a cheese/egg /jalapeno quiche that is really good served hot or cold. Crab/cream cheese stuffed mushrooms. Bisquick/sausage/cheese balls. Country ham on either small biscuits or small dinner rolls.Cold shrimp and cocktail sauce. Wine, beer,soda and iced tea and lots of cookies, bars and candy.Christmas Eve is our family night , opening presents and sharing lots of love and laughter. On Christmas Day everyone is scattered about,but, those who can will come for a big breakfast. I'll share recipes .

    I do a make ahead smoked salmon and cream cheese spread. I mince a small package of smoked salmon and mix it with either chopped chives or green onions and a regular size package of softened cream cheese. I serve it with some nice crackers. My friends and family love this easy treat.

    My crowd loves these and they are so fast to make and look great on a tray. I make them as much as 2 days ahead. Just slide your tray into a ziplock bag, put in frig, and you're good to go. Sour, sweet and salty all rolled up in one.

    1 package cubed sharp cheddar cheese
    1 package of fresh pineapple spears (cut into chunks)
    1 jar of large green stuffed olives, drained

    I buy the fancy little plastic picks at Dollar Tree(the ones with hearts on the top). Thread onto each pick-

    1 cheese cube, 1 pineapple chunk, 1 olive

    I never have a single one left over!
