Whether you’re preparing starters for dinner or arranging the perfect gameday spread, these quick appetizer recipes come together in a snap!

Potato Skin Bites

These bite-sized potato slices are great as a starter, and they can even share space on the plate if your steak dinner needs a side. To get started, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F, then scrub a few russet potatoes clean. You’ll need to slice them into even, half-inch pieces, then toss them in olive oil. Extra flavor comes from garlic powder, cayenne, salt, and pepper, and once they’re all seasoned, the bites should go into the oven for 30 to 40 minutes, with a flip midway through. When they’re out, sprinkle cheese and bacon over each one, then broil them until the cheese melts.

Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Peppers

To add a splash of color to your dinner table, try these vibrant stuffed mini peppers. Many grocery stores carry bags of mixed sweet peppers, so look for a variety of yellow, orange, and red. As your oven comes up to 400 degrees F, you’ll need to cut the peppers in half and carefully remove the seeds and inner membranes – that’s where the heat of a chili pepper really is. To make the filling, mix cream cheese, chopped and cooked bacon, cheddar, garlic powder, green onion, and Worcestershire sauce, then fill each half pepper. They’ll need to cook in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes.

Buffalo Chicken Rollups

If you want to start your meal with a little spice, these buffalo chicken rollups offer just enough kick to wake up your taste buds. It’s also a great use for leftover chicken. Shred the chicken about two cups of chicken while you preheat the over to 350 degreed F. Make the filling by combining shredded chicken, cheddar, cream cheese, and buffalo sauce in a bowl. Warm up the mix in a pan on low heat, then lay out crescent roll triangles on a baking sheet. Spoon a scoop of the mix onto each triangle, then wrap the dough around the scoops and seal each rollup. They’ll need to bake for about 25 minutes.
