Five Appetizers for $25

Five Appetizer Recipes

Dinner parties have their place, but they also have their down sides. That’s why a finger food party can be a great alternative. It keeps guests moving around and lets everyone talk to each other. You get to eat a variety of foods without feeling stuffed, and there’s always something for everyone.

Problem is, preparing so many appetizers can be time consuming and expensive. That’s why I’ve come up with five super easy apps that cost a total of $25 (with help from a few basic pantry items I had around the house).

 

Here are some tricks to help you save time and stretch your app dollar:

  • Crostini/Bruschetta makes for an affordable appetizer, especially when you offer several different toppings. Buy a baguette, slice and toast it , then pick two or three different toppings to make different finger foods.
  • Mixing and matching creates different flavor combinations that allow you to prepare a variety of apps with minimal ingredients. The consistency of certain flavors will make the dishes complement each other without being repetitive.

Here are my Five Appetizer Recipes for $25:

Roasted Garlic Spread Recipe

1. Roasted Garlic Spread
Quick tip: To remove the garlic from the skin, use your thumb to squeeze from the bottom of the clove upwards.

Thai Toast Recipe

2. Thai Toast
Quick tip: If you only have regular (untoasted) sesame oil, that’s fine too, although the stronger, nutty, charred aroma of the toasted variety alone is worth a trip to the store.

Smoked Oysters on Crackers

3. Smoked Oysters with Hot Sauce

Caprese Salad Skewers Recipe

4. Caprese Salad Poppers

Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic Hummus Recipe

5. Garlic and Pepper Hummus
