Now that school is back in session and football season is getting started we are getting more invites to get togethers and I always like to bring a dish so I thought I’d share some easy appetizer recipes this week that are fabulous for entertaining or for taking with you to gatherings. You can’t go wrong with these fast and easy recipes when you want to impress or have a crowd to feed.
1) Hummus Cups With Cucumber and Tomato
These gorgeous Hummus Cups With Cucumber and Tomato from Inspired Taste look like they took awhile to put together but they’re made from refrigerated pizza dough so they’re super simple to make and so delicious.
2) Bacon Wrapped Scallops
Looking for a low calorie, low fat appetizer? Real Healthy Recipes Bacon Wrapped Scallops are a healthier appetizer choice and they’re also packed with protein so your guests will get filled up and they’ll also work for those on gluten free diets.
