Cocktail appetizers for 20 guests

To figure out how many appetizers you need for a cocktail party, calculate on 10 appetizers per person over a two-hour period.



Hot Nibbles
Prosciutto Scallops: This delicious and simple appetizer is such a crowd-pleaser you may want to double the recipe.

Apple Pork Tenderloin Canapes:
Choose a long thin baguette with a crisp crust for these two-bite hors d'oeuvres.
Pizza Fingers with Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto: These pizza fingers have a crust thin enough to allow the toppings to shine yet firm enough so they don't fall off.

Cold Nibbles
Snow Pea Shrimp with Lemon Aioli: Snow peas add a fresh crunch to every bite of tender shrimp, made even more delicious with the aioli.
Belgian Endive Spears with Curried Chicken: Endive spears not only provide the base for this tasty filling but also add their pleasant bitterness.
Chicken Liver Pâté with Brandied Currant Sauce: A glistening sauce dresses up this familiar hors d'oeuvre. To keep it looking fresh at the party or to supply more than one occasion, it's divided between two bowls.
Smoked Salmon Bites with Dill Caper Cream: Garnish with additional dill sprigs or salmon roe.
Toasted Spiced Baguette Crisps: Thin slices of spiced baguette make tasty scoops for any dip.
Fresh Herb Dip: There are lots of fancy exotic dips nowadays, but this classic remains a favourite. Garnish with sliced green onion and serve with Toasted Spiced Baguette Crisps (recipe here) or crudités.
