Quick Gourmet Appetizers

If guests stop by unexpectedly, or you’re strapped for time before a potluck party, try whipping up one of these easy-to-prepare recipes that use basic supermarket ingredients or things you may already have in the refrigerator. Frozen dumplings and quiches can be topped with fresh ingredients to make them more gourmet, or use slices of tomatoes, cheese or prosciutto to create simple yet delicious starters. These recipes are perfect for cocktail parties, pre-dinner apps, or mid-afternoon snacking.
