I would rather do a 6 course dinner for 20 than make appetizers. I hate making them, to me they are time consuming and I always make a mess. I don't bake either. We are invited to a SB party and everyone is to bring a couple of appetizers. I am at a total loss because I don't do them. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, kelse

Some easy suggestions:

You could always do a veggie tray with dip or a tray with several different kinds of hummus and pita chips. Or fill a tray with a variety of cheeses and crackers.

Costco has a decent selection of frozen appetizers. The mini quiches are pretty good. Just heat and serve.

Get a large tub of Creme Cheese

1 package of thin Corned Beef

3 green onions

Place Cream Cheese in a large bowl and let it get soft
cut Corned Beef into small pieces along with onions (
use some of the green ) place in bowl with Creme Cheese
fold gently.

Line inside of the Creme Cheese tub with plastic wrap
pour contents from bowl into tub and cover with lid and
put in the fridge. Do a day ahead of time

Serving Suggestions;

Remove from tub and place in center of plate/serving
platter, Do Not remove plastic until you smooth over
the sides then remove wrap. Place crackers around the outside of the Mound of Goodness,
I also like to poke in a few pretzels so it stands out

It does not get any easier then this and it looks like
you spent sometime on it AND best of all it tastes GREAT

I don't care a whit about the Super Bowl, but my favorite things to make for other watch parties are:

-Buffalo chicken dip (less of a pain than wings, less messy to eat, same flavor)
-Texas caviar
-Chips and salsa
-Turtles made with mini-pretzel twists
-Cocktail wieners in the crock pot with the jam/chili sauce combo
-Shrimp cocktail with lots of lemon wedges

I have stuffed mushrooms for parties & everyone loves them! Here's some ideas but you could alter them to suit your tastes.

Atkins Chef Recipes | Spinach-Stuffed Mushrooms

Vegan Piggy: Vegan Stuffed Mushrooms

Another favorite of ours is thai spring rolls with the cellaphane wrappers. They are easier than you would think & fun to make. I wet my wrappers on a plate under the hot faucet then stuff & roll right on the plate. To those too, you can add what you want. I use bean thread noodles & a variety of veggies. Link to dipping sauce here too:

Have fun! We'll be skiing since nobody will be on the slopes!
