Next week, we are doing a progressive dinner with our youth group and a couple other churches youth groups. Our church is handling appetizers. We are looking at about 30 teens. I am looking for ideas. Other than the obvious, meatballs, cocktail wieners, wings, and bagel pizzas. Do you have any suggestions? Trying to keep cost low of course because you know this is coming out of my pocket.....

My teenagers love mexican pinwheels - they are inexpensive to make and they love them. buy a package of soft tortillas spread a thin layer of cream cheese over each one spread a thin layer of salsa over that - try not to get chunky roll it up as tightly as you can wrap in saran wrap and chill in the fridge to set take them out and make slices about 1/2 inch wide and lay them on a tray They are festive and yummy! Enjoy!

Jelly with some fresh fruit. Jelly is suitable as a appetizers for teenagers, especially those on diet program. Fresh fruit also good for health and it is cheap too. So you could save money and make everyone healthy.

well I think you covered the basic appetizers with the wings and bagel pizzas teenagers are simple to cater to just throw them some of the before mentioned wings and bagel pizzas and made some chips and they are happy my teenager likes corn chips with queso dip made out of velveeta and rotelle

I make marinated cawliflower flowerets with a dip on the side. I like a mayo with crushed garlic but teens will probably apretiate more the typical mayo ketchup dip that you can make in 2 seconds and it´s unexpensive. I also lower down costs making my own small pizzas. I buy bread, pain it with a little bit of tamato sauce, add a slice of cheese ( the unexpensive one that will melt) I put dry oregano over it and sometimes a slice of tomato or ham or a black olive. Take care!
