If you need an appetizer recipe for your next kids’ party, try my recipe.

  • 75 grams Flour, All Purpose
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 35 grams Butter, Chilled
  • ¼ whole Egg Yolk, Beaten
  • 35 milliliters Water Cooled
  • 12 whole Chicken Or Similar Veggie Or Fish Nuggets (can Be Purchased From The Gr

    Sift the flour. Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

    Next add approximately 1/4 of the beaten egg yolk and also add the water. Try to work quickly.

    Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 -15 minutes.

    Now take the chilled dough and roll out into a 10 inch square that is about 1/8 inch thick, using a rolling pin.

    Next prepare the nuggets as per the packet instructions. (I used homemade cutlets). Let cool.

    Next cut the dough. You need two dough cutters – one beak/ head/neck shaped cutter and one wings shaped cutter. If you don’t have cutters draw a shape on a piece of paper and cut it out . Place the pattern on top of the dough and cut it out with a sharp knife. You’ll need to cut out 12 beak/head/neck shapes and 24 wings.

    Next place them on a greased baking tray and bake about 7 minutes at 180 C degrees or until the crust is light brown. Remove from oven and let cool.

    You are ready to decorate. Make three holes in the nuggets using a toothpick. Then stick in the wings and neck, pressing down to seal. I’ve done this in the photo above.

    After that, you can decorate the duck shaped appetizer with eyes and mouth/beak. I’ve done so in the photo using food coloring for the eyes and mouth/beak.

Easy Party Appetizer Ideas

Cheesy Bread is always a hit when I make it for a party. It's pretty easy to make too. All you need is a loaf of Italian or French syle bread to start. I use my own Easy Bread recipe to make it and I've made it several times without the olives. Great with cream soups too. See the recipe below.

On this page are some ideas for appetizers for parties. Appetizers are fun to make and fun to eat, whether at a party or at a buffet.

Cheesy Bread

  • 1 loaf Italian or French bread
  • Swiss cheese
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 c. butter (depending on your size loaf)
  • 1 small onion, chopped fine
  • 1 Tblsp. poppy seeds
  • 1 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 small jar olives, chopped, (optional)

Slice the loaf 3/4 of the way through and place on aluminum foil. Alternate slices of Swiss and Cheddar in the cuts in the loaf.

Melt butter in a small saucepan, add chopped onion, poppy seeds, garlic, lemon juice, and chopped olives. Add the mustard powder last, (because it will thicken everything.) Take off heat and spoon into the cuts in the loaf, then pour remaining over top. Wrap in foil and bake at 350 for a half hour. Then open the foil and let it cook for 5 to 10 minutes more. Remove from oven and use a big knife to slice it all the way through the loaf in chunks. Serve immediately.

Sausage Balls

Mix all ingredients together. Roll into 1 inch balls. Spray cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 15 min.

Sausage and Pineapple

Cook sausages until done. Cut into 1 inch pieces. Place in crockpot or pan with pineapple and juice. Simmer or cook in crockpot several hours. Good dish for brunch.

Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Refrigerate any leftovers. Yield: 2 dozen appetizers.

Imagine you've forgotten once again the difference between a gorilla and a chimpanzee, so you do a quick Google image search of “gorilla." But instead of finding images of adorable animals, photos of a Black couple pop up.

Is this just a glitch in the algorithm? Or, is Google an ad company, not an information company, that's replicating the discrimination of the world it operates in? How can this discrimination be addressed and who is accountable for it?

“These platforms are encoded with racism," says UCLA professor and best-selling author of Algorithms of Oppression, Dr. Safiya Noble. “The logic is racist and sexist because it would allow for these kinds of false, misleading, kinds of results to come to the fore…There are unfortunately thousands of examples now of harm that comes from algorithmic discrimination."

On At Liberty this week, Dr. Noble joined us to discuss what she calls “algorithmic oppression," and what needs to be done to end this kind of bias and dismantle systemic racism in software, predictive analytics, search platforms, surveillance systems, and other technologies.

These all look so good! I'm getting hungry just reading about them. I will definitely be trying these the next time I have company over.

This is quite possibly the best page for party snack ideas. I really like that there are a lot of meaty options and even some zucchini parmesan chips, too. Fantastic!

There is nothing like the feeling of running through jalapenos in the food processor. This recipe looks like it would be worth the pain of it. I usually have a day with a big meal and the next are appetizers. This even looks festive. Adding this to my list for Christmas Day.

These snacks are perfect for New Year's day when you have lots of left overs, you are tired of eating heavy meals and of cooking and you want to sit back and relax. finally. We always have a family/friend get-together on New Year's day as each one of us has different plans on Old Year's Eve and go our separate ways. So this is where I am sourcing my ideas for that day!

Love your site. I do wish it had more pictures. Please add some type of logo that will pin your recipe on It is great advertising and we can use the recipes better. Please consider. Thank you.

Flavor-Packed Bites

Roasted Shrimp with Homemade Cocktail Sauce

Pea Pesto Crostini

Warm Brie with Fuji Apple, Pear and Melba Toasts

Pizzette with Gorgonzola, Tomato and Basil

Bruschetta with Tomato and Basil

Spanakopita Chicken Meatballs with Spicy Cucumber and Yogurt Sauce

Cheese-Stuffed Dates with Prosciutto

Blini with Smoked Salmon

Spanish Tortilla

Shrimp Cocktail with Quick Remoulade

Pasta Chips with Alfredo Dip

Here's one more way to love pasta: as a crispy snack. Serve it up golden fried with a smooth and creamy sauce for dipping.

This velvety-smooth sauce uses real cheddar (not the processed stuff) and comes together in less than 10 minutes. Serve as is with chips, fries, or chili dogs, or transform it into the best queso you've ever had. Pro tip: Skip the aged cheddar from the fancy cheese counter—the sauce will be even creamier with a block of no-frills cheddar from the dairy aisle of the supermarket.

Ok, this quick and easy hors d'oeuvre is a little retro, but that means it's just right for an Ugly Christmas Sweater party. And you'll want to scarf down these little cornucopias down as fast as you can make them.

Don&apost forget a dip for fruit dunkers. We made our tray with a Marshmallow Dip.

Choose variety: Pick fruits of varying flavors, textures, and colors for the most interesting fruit tray.

Keep it fresh: Even in season, berries and cherries can be pricey. Purchase berries just before serving since their life span isn&apost very long once picked.

Get ahead: Most fruit can be washed, peeled, and sliced up to 24 hours before serving. Store fruit in separate containers in the fridge until party time. Cut up apples, pears, and bananas at the last minute to avoid discoloring as they stand.

Size-wise: Cut up fruit into manageable pieces for easy dipping and eating.

Repurpose leftovers: Blend fruit leftovers into smoothies, add to salads, top ice cream, or garnish cookies and cakes.

Snack math: Plan on ½ to 1 cup fruit, 2𠄳 tablespoons dip, and 1 cookie per guest. For 12 guests, plan 6𠄸 cups fruit, 24 tablespoons (1½ cups) dip, and 12 cookies.
