Easy & inexpensive appetizers/snacks for large crowd

jcattles | Sep 28, 2010 02:52 PM

I'm looking for ideas for appetizers/snacks/dips that are easy & quick to make. Also fairly inexpensive.

This is for a mid-afternoon baby shower & we are expecting between 30-50 people.

I will be serving coffee, lemonade, & iced tea for drinks & will have a cake.

We don't want the guests to fill up on food right before dinner, but we want to offer some sort of a snack.

There will be 4-5 of us who can cook. I just need some ideas.

So far I've come up with: buffalo dip, 7 layer bean dip, fruit dip, veggie tray, fruit tray. Maybe some chex mix or glazed nuts. I make some great pinwheel snacks with puff pastry, pancetta, parmesan & caramelized onions, but that can get expensive.

How much should I be expecting each guest to eat?

What else do you suggest?
