8 Quick and Easy Party Appetizers

Dress up these must-have store-bought items for irresistible party foods guests will love

It doesn't have to take hours to prep great finger foods for a party.

Move over, cheese plate. There is another quick and easy appetizer this year — and it’s homemade.

Savvy hosts know that party foods don’t have to be made completely from scratch to taste good and wow guests. Between work and family, finding time to host a party is a challenge enough. So when it comes to serving appetizers, we’ll take all the help we can get.

Forget about picking up a tray of crudités and dip, or shrimp cocktail. We’ve taken eight common grocery store products that are easy to have on hand in the freezer, fridge, or pantry at all times. Doctor up mozzarella balls for an easy appetizer that delights guests, or spread on your favorite pesto or sea salt and herbs atop puff pastry for a gourmet version of pizza (that is oh-so-easy to prepare yourself). All you need is a bit of creativity, and the items that follow, and voilà — irresistible snacks that are sure to delight guests without sacrificing flavor. Plus, they’ll save you time in the kitchen, leaving you free to enjoy the party.

I mean, warm cheese and crusty bread, does it get any better than that?

Spend all of five minutes prepping the dish and then sit back to enjoy your holiday party. Oh, you can totally make a batch of your own cranberry sauce in advance. It will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator.
