We only have a few vegetarian appetizers and may I say that some have cheese, which
may not always be strictly vegetarian.  I will note in the recipes, which things may
need some substitutions for strict vegetarians.  I found out through my readers that
Lee and Perrins has anchovies in it, I had no idea. 

Black Bean Spirals  Decorative and delicious.  These spirals will fill up any
hungry crowd.

Chex Party Mix  This is the original recipe.  Always use Lea & Perrins Worcestershire
sauce, the others are not worth the savings, they are weak and salty tasting.

Cranberry Brie Puffs  These are not just for holidays but are perfect for a holiday
buffet at a cocktail party.

Jalapeno Deviled Eggs  Nice and spicy eggs pair up well with a frothy beer
and a football game.

Jalapeno Poppers  Much better than the frozen store bought version.  You can
use cream cheese if you like.

Jezebel Sauce with Cream Cheese  Some cream cheeses have gelatin and the pectin
may not be for every vegetarian.  This is an unusual sauce that you will make over
and over.  It's good to use with many dishes.

Latke Poppers  A bit of a pain to make but so worth it.  Shredded potatoes are
filled with spicy cheese and fried.  Heaven.

Orange Spiced Walnuts  This is a great snack for both kids and adults.  It's
unusual and made with gelatin.  Good for parties.

Parmesan Potato Balls  If you have leftover mashed potatoes and some corn
flakes that are going a little stale, this is the recipe for you.  Plus they are
sooo good. 

Ritz Bitz Snack  This isn't exactly an appetizer, but our friend Don
brings this to our Easter Egg Hunt each year and he e-mailed the
recipe to share.  A big favorite with the kids.

Teddy Bear Snack Mix  A healthy mix of Honey Nut Cheerios, nuts, raisins and
teddy bear snacks.  Kids love to make this mix and a bowl left around the house
makes a quick snack that is good for them.  My kids rave over this.

Teriyaki Cheese Ball Teriyaki flavored cheese, rolled in toasted sesame seeds.
Much fresher tasting than purchased cheese balls.

Vegetable Pate  This red, white and green terrine looks like you slaved away
for hours.  With a food processor it is really simple plus its healthy. 
Must be made a day ahead.
