20 Fantastic Hors D’oeuvres Recipes.

These appetizer recipes range from super easy to a little more advanced, so you’re sure to find something that will work for both your skill level & your desired length of time you want to spend in the kitchen doing party prep.

What are Hors D’ Oeuvres?

Essentially it is what Americans refer to as an Appetizer…it’s basically a smaller serving of a savory food meant to be eaten while the main course of the meal is being prepared.

Don’t laugh at me too hard, but I was in my mid-twenties before I knew what the word meant… and by then I was too embarrassed to ask anyone…so I thought I would do you all a favor and include that for those of you that may be too shy to ask too.
