Cheap and Easy appetizers for summer BBQ!

Allenkii | Jun 6, 2013 09:29 AM

My husband is graduating university and we are having a BBQ in our back yard. I have about 15 people coming over the night of his graduation, so I won’t have a lot of time to cook. It will be a casual gathering with many hungry men in a small back yard!
For main dish, we are BBQing meat and I will have different salads – coleslaw, watermelon salad, berry salad and Caesar.
I will also have a cheese / cold cuts platter decorated with grapes.
But, I am struggling with appetizers. I wanted to have more variety, while keeping it relatively simple and inexpensive.
For smaller dinner parties (4 people or so), I often make cream cheese bacon wrapped jalapenos or crab stuffed mushrooms or escargots, but this is rather a large party and will be time consuming and pricey to make these appetizers. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!
