Best way to do it!
You don't want to be working on food at your own party!
Eat, Drink & Be Merry!

Michael, I too am hosting a get together with appetizers and am planning to serve:

Meatballs with Heinz chili sauce/grape jelly – recipe on back of Heinz chili bottle. It’s very good. Prepare mini meatballs as you usually do (I fry mine) and heat up in a sauce pan with the two sauces combined.

Pizza bagels, hamburger sliders, chicken nuggets with several dipping sauces (always a kid pleaser and most adults enjoy them too)

Finally it’s a toss up between Stromboli or tortilla wraps. Depends on how I feel. Stromboli is made with pizza dough and you can virtually stuff anything in it and bake. You can pre make it, wrap in aluminum foil and reheat before your guests arrive. I like to stuff mine with slicing pepperoni and mozzarella adding an egg wash on top to make it golden brown and I sprinkle sesame seeds on top. You can also stuff with sliced Italian cooked sausage, tomato sauce, and sautéed peppers/onions.

For the tortilla wraps I like to buy several different flavors and fill with cold cuts. One variation is turkey with a cranberry/mayo and the other is roast beef with a horseradish/mayo and arugula leaves. I use Hellman’s mayo and mix in horseradish sauce or use Ocean Spray Cranberry Sauce for the other one. Roll up and cut into pinwheels.

I've posted this before but I think it's worth another run here. Scallion bread: It is easy, cheap and really good. any stale or fresh french/Italian bread loaf. Cut in half legnthwise and spread with 1/2 inch of a topping made from mayo, cheapo grated parm cheese and sliced scallions. Broil until bubbly and starting to brown, slice and serve. I use 2 parts mayo, 1 part cheese and as many scallions as I have that are getting a bit old. Good stuff!

Going to make this tonite for our starch for dinner!
Sounds good, and you have never steered us wrong yet!
Thanks!

The party was amazing. Lots of food and lots of libations. Here is what I ended up making.

1. Sweet and Sour Meatballs
2. Spinach Balls
3. Crab Dip with Veggies
4. Shrimp apps
5. Cheese balls ( different fillings)
6. Cucumber Sandwiches
7. Corn Chowder

and Kim's awesome Cheese Cake

I can post any of the recipes I used if anyone is interested

Thanks for all your help.

Next Event - New Years Eve - a quiet night with someone special, some Alaskan King Crab with melted garlic butter, Filet Mignon and potatoes au gratin and cauliflower or broccoli with a nice cheddar cheese sauce and a Louis Latour Chardonnay (We discovered this wine at Le Cottage)

--------------------
Cheers

Michael
