These are all great. I've made them many times, and have recommended them to lots of people:

Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms
Bruschetta with Roasted Peppers and Goat Cheese
Blue Cheese Broiled Tomatoes
Salmon Canapes

Will post and/or link you to any of these recipes if you're interested.

I'd be interested to find what you make.
Hi Laurie. Glad to find your post - I was looking under appetizers, as I had a few in mind. This time of year one appetizer I like is won ton wrappers stuffed with squash, pumpkin or sweet potatoes with a dipping sauce (cranberry etc.) Another stuffed won ton I like is filled with nutella & cream cheese and a hazelnut -- fry in oil and sprinkle with sugar. Another appetizer I like is shrimp wrapped in a won ton wrapper.

What about pickled eggs. You can make them way in advance and they are low maintainence for transporting and serving.

my newest one is appetizer shis kabobs
cook up some cheese tortillinis get salami and peperoni and cut them into chunks and put them on bamboo sticks. tortlinni-salami-tortillini-peperoni torillini or any way you want-- marinate them in Italian dressing and then serve.
I will put them in a large vertical container and pour the dressing in so the handle won't be sloppy when people eat them. I have made them also using grape tomatos, and fresh mozzeralla balls a basil leave line both of them up on a platter and as I have you will get great reviews.

forgot to give you my easiest one
1 - 80z brick of cream cheese place on a serving platter
2 cans of baby shrimp rinsed and drain well -- then mix it with one jar of cocktail sauce and pour over the cream cheese

I serve trisket crackers around it. they work the best.

Another is, Gordon's Ricotta-Stuffed Zucchini Rolls:

Ricotta-Stuffed Zucchini Rolls - Gordon Ramsay Recipe | Apple Pie, Patis, and Pâté

It helps balance out the sweetness of the pumpkin/sweet potato won tons. You could use chopped walnuts or toasted pine nuts in place of the almonds in the ricotta filling.
