Stuffed Mushrooms
According to Saveur magazine, the flavors in this dish embody a delicate sweetness due to marsala wine and a sharpness from the pecorino romano cheese. They are also incredibly easy to make and are a real crowd pleaser.

Pancetta-Wrapped Scallops with Lemon
Food & Wine magazine recommended this delectable appetizer for your next party, as it pairs perfectly with cocktails or a dry white wine. With the addition of crispy pancetta, aromatic lemon zest, green rosemary and fresh scallops, you are going to have a hard time finding a guest who isn’t going to fall in love with this pick.

Crab Rangoon
Perhaps one of the most beloved Asian-inspired hors d’oeuvres, these crunchy and decadent snacks are very popular, so make sure to make plenty of them on hand! Fresh wontons, scallions, garlic, crab meat, toasted sesame oil and cream cheese all combine to make a great appetizer that is best served with sweet chili sauce or Chinese hot mustard.

Make sure to serve something light alongside your hors d’oeuvres, such as cocktails, red wine and champagne for adults, and fruit punch for the kiddos. After making all of these classic treats for your friends and family, they will definitely want you to host the next party.
