Appetizer Recipes

These are a few of my go to appetizer recipes that I have been making for years. And best yet, they are all super easy!

Cheesy Reuben Appetizer

8 ounces of cream cheese
1 1/2 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Thousand Island salad dressing
1/4 pound corn beef, chopped
1/2 cup sauerkraut, drained

Directions: Mix cream cheese, 1 cup Swiss cheese, salad dressing and corn beef. Spread in a pie plate and top with the sauerkraut and 1/2 cup Swiss cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Serve with rye party squares or pretzel crackers.

Italian Sausage Appetizer

1 pound Italian sausage
2/3 cup mozzarella, shredded
1/2 cup sour cream
6 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon worshteshire sauce
Party Rye bread squares

Brown the sausage and then cool. Mix all ingredients together. Place a good amount on a slice of the party rye bread. Place pieces of prepared bread on a baking sheet and place under broiler until bubbly.

Ham Appetillas

1 package large tortillas (I prefer Azteca Supersize flour tortillas)
16 ounces cream cheese
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons green onions, chopped
1/4 cup black olives, chopped
1 pound sliced ham lunch meat

Mix cream cheese, mayo, green onions, and black olives. Spread a thin layer of this mixture on a tortilla and then top with a layer of ham. Roll up and wrap each roll with cellophane until ready to cut and serve.
When ready to serve, unwrap each roll and cut off ends. Cut each tortilla roll in 1 inch servings.

Those all sound great, especially the Reuben appetizer. My husband loves the sandwiches so will probably love those!!
