    I like shrimpies. 😛  

    I think a lot of other people do too, they seem to go fast.

    I love the rolls, oh I made these avocado and sun dried tomato eggrolls before and they are the bomb!! PM if you want the recipe and I’ll dig it out for you.  You could do bacn wrapped shrimp – a friend and I just did this a few weeks ago with jumbo frozen shrimp and turkey bacon and they were awesome.  Plus really easy to do.  And I LOVE LOVE cheese, so anything cheesy would be good.  You could do a cold layer dip (cheese, guac, salsa, whatever you want) that you can make beforehand.

    One of my all time favorites is brie en croute. It is super easy to make and very elegant. Just get a wheel of brie and some puff pastry. Wrap the brie in the puff pastry and seal the edges with egg wash. You can also make some cool designs (like holly leaves) with some extra pastry. Then put egg wash on the top. Bake until golden. You can also add jams and nuts either on top of the brie inside the pastry, or serve on the side for people to add if they want. Delicious!

    i wouldnt be able to choose just one appetizer since i love appetizers so much more then a meal. i have been making a super easy cheeseball that everyone loves. but i am definitely in the dips and spread category.

    I’m a big fan of either your basic chilled shrimp with cocktail sauce, or crab/spinach and artichoke dip with bread dippers. Yum!

    Okay, now I’m hungry …

    Yes to everything? 

    In all seriousness, I think my favorite appetizers are seafoody things–either shrimp cocktail or crab cakes.

    I’m a HUGE fan of apps.

     

    Some of my “hits” have been:

    Salsa strips – Buy crescent roll dough (if you can find the Pillsbury seamless sheets, they are amazing). Spread flat on a cookie sheet. Mix about 1/2 cut of medium salsa with a tablespoon of mustard (I use semi-spicy mustard, but I like the kick). Spread the salsa mixture on top of the dough. Cook at 350 for about 10 minutes, then sprinkle mozzarella cheese over the top. Cook for another 10/until brown. Let cool a little and cut into slices. Top with cilantro (optional).

    Meatballs – Put one jar of chili sauce, one can of cranberry sauce, 1 tablespoon brown sugar and a tablespoon of lemon juice in crockpot. Put on low for about an hour so you can mix it together. Either make your own meatballs or use the frozen store mini-meatballs (can be added frozen). Put meatballs into the crockpot, mix, cover and wait a couple hours.

    I love Caprese Tomato Bites! They are easy to make, delicious and not too heavy that you’ll ruin dinner!

    Just had them on Thanksgiving!
