10 Appetizers on a Budget

MyRecipes.com just came out with 10 Money-Saving Appetizers just in time for the holiday season! Click here to see the full article. Click on the name of the appetizer, and you will be connected to MyRecipes.com for the recipe.

Stuffed Cheese Puffs: These savory little cheese puffs are great alone, or you can fill them with crabmeat, mushroom filling, or chicken salad. The cost of the filling is not included, but at $0.23 per serving, you've got room to splurge.

Cheese & Guinness Spread: Think of this appetizer as a dip version of the ever-popular beer cheese soup. It's best to use Guinness or another type of stout so that you'll get the maximum beer flavor. The cost is $0.48 per serving.

White Bean Dip: Turn to a bean dip when you need a budget-friendly appetizer. All you need is a can of cannellini beans, some fresh herbs, lemon juice and olive oil, plus your choice of dippers. Fresh veggies or pita chips are great options. The cost is $0.29 per serving.

Sausage Rolls: These hearty sausage-filled puff pasty rolls are sure to be a hit at your next cocktail buffet or when you have folks over to watch the big game. The cost is $0.32 per serving.


Vidalia Onion Tarts: If Vidalia onions aren't in season, or if you can't find them in your area, use another type of sweet onion to top these biscuit-like tarts. Watch the video to see how to caramelize onions. The cost is $0.38 per serving.

Lemon & Black Pepper Cheese Straws: Make shortcut cheese straws by adding Parmesan cheese, lemon zest, and black pepper to frozen puff pasty dough. They're not only great for snacking, but also as an accompaniment for soup or salad. The cost is $1.11 per serving.

Tangy Marinated Cheese: Ideal for entertaining, this cheese appetizer is about as easy as they come. Make the entire recipe the night before your party, then all you have to do is pull it out of the 'fridge and serve with French bread or crackers. The cost is $1.08 per serving.

Cheese & Tomato Toasts: If you've got cream cheese on hand, you can use it instead of goat cheese. The goat cheese will be slightly tangier, but because of the tomato, garlic and olive, the flavor's great either way. The cost is $1.01 per serving.

Potato Nests with Sour Cream & Smoked Salmon: Using just a small amount of smoked salmon along with inexpensive ingredients such as potatoes and sour cream is a great way to make an impressive appetizer without spending a fortune. The cost is $0.52 per serving.

Creamy Dill Dip with Pita Chips: Thick and creamy Greek yogurt is the star of this easy dip. And you can save money by making your own pita chips rather than buying bagged chips or crackers. You can also make your own Greek yogurt. Watch this video to see how. The cost is $1.00 per serving.

Couponizer - Buy 2, Get 1 1/2 Off



The Couponizer is a great way to organize your coupons! It is made up of 18 category pockets for your grocery coupons and other coupon and discount categories. I love it because the pockets are organized the way most grocery stores' aisles are organized, making it easier to go through your coupons while you shop. It also comes with customer loyalty sleeves to keep your store loyalty cards & gift cards, a shopping list pad, a coupon tracker to track your savings, scissors to clip your coupons, and comes in a bag to carry around with you. I think my favorite part of the Couponizer is the CoupStacker, which is a mat that you lay out with each of the pockets' categories in order that the pockets are in the Couponizer. You just lay out the mat, place your coupons in each category as your clipping, and then slip them in the corresponding pockets when you're done! It makes organizing coupons so much easier!

The Couponizer goes for $19.95 each, but right now, through the holiday gift giving season, if you buy 2 Couponizers, you will get a 3rd Couponizer for half off. This makes each Couponizer $16.62 before shipping! Plus, you will only have to pay 1 shipping fee! You can get your friends together to put in 1 order for the 3 Couponizers or order 1 for yourself and give 2 (or more) as a nice holiday gift!

Click here to take advantage of this great offer and to see the other great products that The Couponizer Company offers!
