40 Cheese Appetizers That Are Ooey, Gooey and Oh So Easy to Make
There's one thing everybody at any party can agree upon: cheese. But it's time to go beyond a basic cheese plate, people (yawn). Instead, serve one (or several) of these drool-worthy cheese appetizers. We're talking decadent baked Brie, savory goat cheese dip and more.
11. Bacon, Onion and Asiago Fondue
This simple one-pan fondue doesn't require any special burners or equipment to come together. It might tempt you to eat a skillet full of cheese for dinner every night.
15. Pimento Cheese Stuffed Shishito Peppers
Aka the fanciest jalapeño poppers you'll ever eat. Creamy, rich pimento cheese is just the cooling match for smoky, spicy shishitos.
17. Cheesy Polenta Bites with Brussels Sprouts and Pancetta
You know how the crispy corners on cornbread are the best part? That's what every polenta bite tastes like, only with the added bonus of grated Parmesan cheese.
32. Homemade Cheese Crackers
Flaky, buttery cheddar-Parm crackers > bar nuts. It's just a fact. You just might never look at the store-bought kind the same way again.
37. Skillet Kale and Fontina Fondue
Who ever said eating your veggies couldn't involve dousing them in nutty, silky fontina cheese?
39. Mozzarella Bites
On that note, these toothpicked cuties are also a major hit with the kids. Of course, breaded balls of fried bocconcini will be right up your alley, too.
