When it comes to cooking, my favorite course is appetizers. Heavy or light, fancy or casual, there are so many things you can do to start a meal off right. You can even build an entire party around them.
One problem with appetizers, however, is that often your oven and stove are already occupied with the main courses and sides -- especially during big holiday meals. That's where your Crock-Pot can come in handier than ever.
Crock-Pots are perfect for making an array of appetizers and keeping them hot too. Plus they're nice and portable if you're bringing something to a gathering. Here are 10 of the best Crock-Pot recipes for appetizers to get you started.
Artichoke Cheese Dip -- Who needs dinner?
Chicken Wings -- With a hint of Asian flavor, these will spice things up.
Goat Cheese and Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms -- Simple and delicious.
Pepperoni Pizza Dip -- This served on tortilla chips is better than most slices you'll get.
BBQ Meatballs -- Quick and easy, these will definitely tide people over until the main course.
Jalapeno, Crab, and Corn Dip -- Flavorful and fantastic.
Fondue -- Melty and creamy, fondue is perfect for dipping everything from apples to crackers.
Easy Cocktail Wieners -- They're not so fancy, but everyone loves them, and they're incredibly easy.
Party Potatoes With Creamy Aioli -- A nice, unexpected choice.
Mexican Dip -- With beef, sausage, rice, cheese, and more, this is one hearty dip.
