They say that at a great party people never want to leave the kitchen. That may or may not be true, but with the right appetizers at least you may entice them to another room.

At Southern Living we love appetizers so much that we're always looking for easier ways to get them on the table—even if it is the coffee table. Appetizers keep family and friends satisfied and whether you choose hearty or healthy treats, we're here to help you make every small bite your best yet.
