Holiday entertaining is a blast. Who doesn’t love to get gussied up, pour a quick cocktail and laugh with friends?! I certainly do. To make entertaining easy on myself I usually stick to a tried and true bunch of appetizer recipes that always please a crowd. Usually this includes at least two or three cheese-based dishes. It may be a mixture of dips, cheese plates, and baked cheese in dough, or something like that. Whatever I make the cheese apps are always the first to be demolished. The good part about these dips is that they are really, truly a cinch to make and always feed a crowd. Here are seven of my favorite easy cheese party appetizers. I hope they are super popular with your guests and make your entertaining repertoire easy and enjoyable!
