You can never go wrong with hot foods like meatballs. This is another food that can be made in a variety of flavors. Swedish, barbecue, honey garlic, teriyaki, or Italian, this list goes on and on. Serve them alone as bite-size appetizers or serve them over a bed of rice. Either way, the host will be happy.

Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs could be an acquired taste for some, but for many, they’re a favorite. This easy dish consists of boiled eggs, mayonnaise, mustard, and dill pickle relish. Sprinkle it with some paprika and you’re good to go.

Pasta Salad

Pasta salad can be customized to your liking, from the type of noodles to the flavorful additions. There are tons of other ingredients you can add to this yummy dish to give it extra flavor. If this is your first time attempting to make it, consider cucumbers, sliced pepperonis, cherry tomatoes, provolone cheese, and red onions. Combine and mix all the ingredients in a bowl, and don’t forget a signature Italian dressing. Refrigerate overnight and dig in once it’s time to be served.

Chips and Dips

Plain potato chips are good, but pairing it with a bomb dipping sauce makes it 10 times better. The most important factor in chips and dip is indeed the dip. Whether you decide on guacamole, queso, buffalo chicken, or salsa, just make sure there’s an even consistency before serving. If you need to, taste test while creating the dip to ensure you’re on the right tasteful track.

Fruit Charcuterie Board

Show off your creative skills with a charcuterie board. The great thing about charcuterie boards is there are no rules to the types of foods you decide to display. Opt for fresh fruits like apple slices, grapes, pineapples, orange slices, and strawberries. Or, you can go classic and choose cheese cubes, salami, vegetables, crackers, dips, and more. This will depend on the size of the board and whatever type of food you want to offer. Remember, you want your board to look so good that guests won’t even want to eat it.
