Treat the special women in your life to delicious and totally doable Mother’s Day appetizers. Let’s be honest, nothing tastes better than Mom’s cooking, so being able to put something together that makes her feel special is a wonderful gift. These appetizer recipes are easy to make and don’t take much time. Set up everything buffet-style, with a few floral arrangements to make Mom’s day. This is perfect for a casual gathering. The finger foods on the menu can be eaten in a few bites so everyone can mingle. Does Mom like things done a certain way? We’ve got the perfect solution. Set up a Mimosa Bar and a Shortcake Dessert Bar so everyone can make their treats to their liking. These appetizers will be bringing everyone back to the table to grab more, so don’t be afraid to make extra. And the recipes can be easily doubled depending on your RSVP list. We’ve included some twists on retro Southern recipes in our appetizer round up. We’ve added a crunchy Cheese Puff to the classic Ham Salad. Potatoes O’Brien has been updated to a finger-friendly appetizer using bite size potatoes. Avocados have been given the Southern fried treatment to make delicious Avocado Fritters. Remember mom’s egg salad? We’ve given it a kick and a crunch with our Deviled Egg Salad and Asparagus Tartines. Would it really be a party without shrimp salad? We didn’t think so. Our Shrimp and Bacon Salad gets loaded on toasted buns for fun sliders. What would a brunch be without sausages? Ditch the patties and go with easier to eat Breakfast Sausage Meatballs. We’ve made sure to include recipes ranging from sweet to savory. The Snickerdoodle Doughnut Hole Muffins might be the first to disappear. Everyone will also love the Baked Fingerling Potatoes with Smoked Salmon and Capers. These Mother’s Day appetizers will satisfy the toughest critic. Just make sure you have the perfect Mother’s Day gift to go along with it.
