1. Sweet Pea Crostini

This recipe gives the word “toast” a whole new meaning. 

Bet you didn’t think you can make a delicious spread out of sweet peas! But yes, you can, and you definitely should. 

Sweet pea and ricotta are blended to make a creamy, sweet, and salty puree.

Topped with herby-licious gremolata and crunchy pine nuts, this bread spread has an array of flavors and textures that will breath new life to crostini. 

Homemade Spinach Artichoke Dip

2. Spinach Artichoke Dip 

Let’s be honest: spinach and artichoke aren’t the most beloved vegetables. But put them together and you can make the most addictive dip on the entire planet.

When it comes to dips, nothing beats the goodness of a creamy and cheesy spinach artichoke dip.

This recipe is more irresistible than others because it’s loaded with four kinds of cheese and a flavorful garlic alfredo sauce!

It’s also so easy, all you’ll need is to dump all the ingredients in the Crockpot, and it takes care of the rest.

3. Caprese Stuffed Mushrooms 

If you’re looking for a tasty starter that won’t ruin your appetite, go for Caprese-stuffed mushrooms.

These stuffed mushrooms are packed with flavor but are low-carb, which means they won’t fill you up so much.

Filled with mozzarella and tomatoes, roasted in garlic butter, topped with basil, and drizzled with a balsamic glaze, these Portobellos could not be any more delicious.

4. Greek Salad Skewers 

These skewers may seem simple, but there’s nothing basic about their flavors at all.

In one skewer, you’ll get a piece of feta cheese, Kalamata olive, grape tomato, and cucumber. First of all – bravo on the beautiful color combination.

Second of all, oh my God, the flavors and textures in these skewers are pure awesome. You’ll get sweet, salty, tart, crisp, crunchy, and tender all in one.

Last but not least, it’s a beginner-friendly recipe! You won’t even need to cook!

5. Easter Deviled Eggs 

You know what’s even better than sinfully creamy deviled eggs? Ones that look like adorable chicks, that’s what!

These Easter deviled eggs are not only insanely cute but are also super delicious.

They have the creamy goodness of the classic deviled eggs, but are a lot more Instagram-worthy.

Best of all, you’ll get to use up all those eggs you cooked for egg hunting!

6. Easter Cheese Ball 

What do you get when you combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and bacon? An irresistible dip!

While this dip is undeniably cheesy, in no way does it resemble a ball.

It’s served on Easter, after all, so instead of making it round, it’s shaped into a carrot! 

It’s just as creamy and cheesy as any dip, but with a more festive feel. The Easter Bunny would be pleased.

7. Asparagus Crescent Roll Bundles

I never thought asparagus would taste good in a crescent roll. Now that I’ve tried it, I’m a believer.

Trust me, this odd combination works! It’s a great appetizer for Easter, but it’s also perfect for any occasion.

Besides asparagus, these crescent rolls are also stuffed with cheese, adding an extra punch of flavor.

Best of all, it’s 100% vegan! It’s a delightful dish that everyone can enjoy.

8. Shrimp Cocktail 

If you’re planning a fancy Easter get-together, you have to start the party with an impressive shrimp cocktail.

Apart from the sweet and plump shrimp, what makes this appetizer extra special is the sauce. 

This bright and refreshing dip is a combination of salty and zesty with a bit of heat, thanks to horseradish, lemon juice, celery salt, and a variety of spices.

The flavor contrast with the sweet shrimp will give you pure bliss.

9. Brie Bites 

These brie bites are unbelievably good. Buttery puff pastry is filled with cranberry sauce, brie cheese, pecans, and rosemary.

With all those flavors and textures, one bite is like a party in your mouth!

Plus, look how charming these bite-sized beauties are! They’re so easy, to boot. In just 35 minutes, they’re ready to be devoured. 

10. Whipped Ricotta Board 

If you’ve never whipped ricotta cheese before, you’re missing out. You’d better try it today!

Ricotta is already delicious as it is, but when you beat it, it turns into a light, airy, and creamy dip. Season it with lemon, salt, and olive oil, and it’s golden.

Whether you serve it with crostini, crudites, chips, or crackers, it doesn’t matter. It’s a guaranteed hit!

11. Goat Cheese Tartlets 

Aside from ricotta, goat cheese is another fantastic cheese for appetizers. These tartlets, for example, are to die for.

Aside from cheese, these morsels of heaven are also filled with sweet, caramelized onions, topped with fresh rosemary, and drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

Man, this tartlet is like a flavor bomb, it’s almost impossible to stop at one.

12. Caramelized Onion Dip 

Speaking of caramelized onions, here’s another dish that features this phenomenal ingredient oh so well. 

Caramelized onions in a dip? Things are about to get exciting.

Besides the onions, this dip also contains cream cheese, sour cream, and white wine. That’s ultimate umami goodness right there.

It’s sweet, creamy, and 100% addictive. Aside from dipping, you can also spread it on burgers and sandwiches or whatever food you have on hand.

It’s so good, you’ll want to eat it with everything.

13. Strawberry Bruschetta 

Bruschetta is grilled bread that’s typically topped with something savory – tomatoes, vegetables, garlic, olive oil, and the like.

This recipe, however, gives the classic Italian appetizer a tart twist.

Instead of the usual toppings, baguette slices are topped with strawberries, basil, and balsamic vinegar!

It’s sweet, tangy, salty, and savory all at the same time. It’s a wonderfully refreshing starter for Easter.

14. Fava Bean Dip 

This dip is super rich and creamy and packed with flavor. It’s also made with fava beans.

Fava beans are pureed with garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, salt, and olive oil to make a delectable dip that also doubles as a bread spread.

It’s already spectacular as it is, but you can take it up a notch by mixing in chopped walnuts for an element of crunch. 

15. Melon Mosaic 

This mosaic combines sweet and juicy watermelon and cantaloupe to make a stunning work of art.

Let’s first take a moment to look at how beautiful this masterpiece is.

As if it couldn’t be even better, this melon appetizer also features avocados, cherry tomatoes, and feta cheese. 

Dressed with a blend of lemon, honey, and champagne vinegar, this appetizer is a feast for both the eyes and the lips.

16. Ham and Cheese Pinwheels 

These ham and cheese pinwheels couldn’t be any cuter! They’re savory, cheesy, and drool-worthy, too.

Ham and cheese is such a classic duo, and for good reason.

There’s nothing like the comforting combination of sweet and salty ham and rich and creamy cheese. 

Roll them in flaky puff pastry and pop them in the oven to get that beautiful golden hue. Pop one or two in your mouth and serve to guests.

17. Stuffed Dates

Give your sweet tooth something to look forward to with these fantastic stuffed dates. They’re sweet, chewy, and loaded!

Stuffed with goat cheese and pistachios, these dates aren’t only sweet, but also rich and crunchy.

They’re seasoned with salt, pepper, and paprika, too, for a wonderful contrast of flavors.

18. Roasted Artichokes and Garlic Dip

Roasted artichokes are crunchy with an earthy and nutty flavor. Sure, they can be a bit boring on their own.

But together, roasted artichokes and garlic dip make such an addictive pair!

You’ll be surprised at how good it is. It’s so tasty, it might even be the first to disappear at your party.

19. Roasted Beet Dip

This purple dip isn’t only beautiful, it’s drool-worthy as well. Aside from beets, it’s also packed with roasted garlic and walnuts.

Seasoned with fresh herbs, it’s a tasty vegan dip that even meat-eaters will enjoy.

It’s ultra-creamy and also happens to be gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free!

20. Cucumber Feta Rolls

Cucumber feta rolls may not sound as exciting as ham and cheese pinwheels, but they sure are amazing.

Inside these crunchy cucumber rolls is a blend of savory kalamata olives, sweet bell peppers, chewy sun-dried tomatoes, and creamy feta cheese.

Flavored with dill, lemon, and pepper, it’s a delectable filling that’s secretly healthy.

21. Smoked Salmon Tart

In many ways, a smoked salmon tart is like pizza. But it’s much lighter, and the toppings are fancier. 

Flaky puff pastry is topped with whipped cream cheese, rich smoked salmon, pickled onions, herbs, capers, and a spritz of lemon.

Sliced in bite-sized pieces, it makes a fabulous appetizer.

Homemade Crab Cakes

22. Crab Cakes

This recipe is a fantastic way of featuring the ultimate gift from the sea: the crab. 

These crab cakes are phenomenal! Sweet and tender crab meat is complemented with savory seasonings and crunchy breadcrumbs.

You can fry, bake, broil, or grill them. Regardless of the method, you’ll always end up with tender, flaky, and delectable crab cakes.

23. Orange Chicken Meatballs

In this recipe, you’ll turn the popular orange chicken into bite-sized meatballs. They’re so good, Panda Express is shaking.

These meatballs are outrageously moist and tender. The balls are coated in a sweet and sticky glaze flavored with orange, garlic, and ginger.

It’s Chinese comfort food with an American twist.

24. Fruit and Cheese Kabobs

When I hear the word “kebab,” my mind thinks juicy and savory meats, sweet tomatoes, and onions threaded on a skewer.

While that’s incredible, I also won’t say no to these fruit and cheese kabobs.

Apples, blackberries, grapes, pineapple, and cheddar cheese on a stick: this appetizer is colorful and flavorful. It’s a nutritious snack that even kids can’t resist.

25. Dill Dip

If your chips are feeling a little lonely, dill dip is the perfect company. It comes together in only 5 minutes, so you can easily squeeze it into your busy Easter preparations.

It doesn’t take much to make, either – only sour cream, mayonnaise, herbs, and spices. But the flavor?

It’s so creamy and earthy, you’ll never want to eat chips without dip again.

26. Three Cheese Pesto Spinach Flatbread

You had me at three-cheese. This starter is ridiculously loaded! This flatbread is homemade pizza at its finest.

Loaded with spinach, pesto, and three kinds of cheese, this pizza will blow your taste buds away.

It’s perfect for lunch or dinner, but if you cut it into small squares, voila! You’ll have the perfect party appetizer.

27. Cheddar Herb Cheese Straws

These rich and cheesy sticks are such an addictive treat.

The combination of cheese, rosemary, and thyme is such a delight to the taste buds. They look like soft breadsticks, but the texture will surprise you.

They’re actually flaky with a bit of crunch. Delish.

28. Thyme and Cheddar Shortbread

These shortbread cookies may not be sweet, but they are definitely delicious. I can eat them all day!

These cookies are crisp and soft and absolutely amazing. Cheddar cheese and thyme give them such a rich and earthy flavor.

Soft and Buttery Condensed Milk Bread

29. Condensed Milk Bread

Sweetened condensed milk and bread? I’m listening. 

This bread is extremely light and fluffy, but also chewy. The condensed milk gives it such a glossy look and a delectable flavor.

30. Basil Walnut Pesto

This basil walnut pesto is a cinch to make. It’s typically used as a pasta sauce, but you can also turn it into a bread spread.

Top toasted bread or crackers with this nutty pesto and appetizer is ready.
