Sliders are another fantastic option. You can make a variety and your guests can choose their favorites.
A large cheeseball means people have to crowd around the plate or go back again and again. These individual cheeseballs make it easy for people to grab a few for their plates.
If you’re not a fan of the sliders – or looking for something else to serve along with them – these pinwheel sandwiches are easy to make and transport. They’re also delicious!
They had us at bacon. These crackers are a yummy combination of sweet and salty.
There’s no such thing as too much bacon. We can’t decide which is going to taste better – the bacon-wrapped chicken bites or the dipping sauce. The combination sounds divine.
Sausage balls are a classic for game day. The addition of cream cheese kicks them up a notch.
If you have never had stromboli before, you are missing out. Similar to panzerotti, it’s almost like a rolled-up pizza. Scrumptious!

This might be a little easier to serve to a large group than the dip, but still just as delicious!
Each person can grab their own cup of dip and some dippers. No worries about having to stick around the serving table or about double-dipping!
These mozzarella sticks are made in the air fryer so they’re lower fat than typical ones.
These bacon-wrapped chicken bites have that yummy Teriyaki flavor to amp them up.
Another great lower carb option, these breadsticks are only lacking in carbs, not flavor.
