Appetizers are one of those food categories that new recipes are always needed. My family likes to do appetizers nights every few weeks. A full meal dining on a variety of appetizers is a fun change of pace for weeknight dinners and it is a great time to try out new flavor profiles with your family. Lots of appetizers are just miniature versions of full dishes.
I have gathered together 9 of the most popular appetizer recipes on the blog. You can check out all the rest here – Appetizers. There are a few staple tools that you are going to want for making many of these recipes. One very important thing is a standard muffin tin (two really), you can use them for much more than muffins! Another thing that comes in handy are appetizer serving trays.
Fancy Pigs in a Blanket – The addition of dijon mustard and sharp cheddar cheese to miniature smoked sausages and flaky crescent style rolls gives you Fancy Pigs in a Blanket!
Quick Shrimp Ceviche – This recipe for Quick Shrimp Ceviche lets you enjoy the delicious Peruvian flavors of Ceviche without risking the mistake of not fully curing the shrimp (or fish) with the citric juices.

Like these Jalapeno Dill Deviled Eggs – a little spicy kick along with the freshness of dill. Just be careful bringing them to the next function – because you will be asked to bring them every time!
