10 Frozen Appetizers to Bring to Parties

We all know that the food is the most important element of a party, whether it's a classy dinner party or a backyard BBQ. While you could go to the effort of making homemade spinach artichoke dip or pigs in a blanket, there are many options for frozen snacks that are just as delicious and much easier. Here are 10 frozen appetizers to be the star of the snack table.

1. Trader Joe's Parmesan Pastry Pups

Trader Joe's has their frozen snacks down, and their Parmesan Pastry Pups are no exception. These frozen snacks are mini hot dogs wrapped in buttery puff pastry and then sprinkled with parmesan cheese. Bake them in your oven until golden brown and crispy, and you have an addicting party snack.

2. Tai Pei Egg Rolls

You can never go wrong with a crispy egg roll. The Tai Pei brand is a go-to and can be found in the frozen food section of most grocery stores. Choose between chicken pork or veggie egg rolls, or go all out and try all three! These frozen appetizers are wrapped in a crispy egg roll wrapper similar to a wonton wrapper and come with sweet and sour dipping sauce.

3. TGI Friday Mozzarella Sticks

Sometimes you want a particular snack from a restaurant without actually leaving your couch to go get it. Fortunately, you can buy the TGI Friday Mozzarella Sticks to enjoy whenever you like! These quick and tasty appetizers are made with mozzarella cheese coated in a garlicky breading and served with marinara dipping sauce, and they'll be the first to go at any party. Try the TGI Friday Potato Skins and Chicken Wings too!

4. Costco Chicken Nuggets

Chicken Nuggets never get old, no matter how old you are. The Just Bare Chicken Nuggets at Costco are said to taste just like Chick-fil-A's, which is reason enough to buy them in my book. These chicken bites are slightly bigger than those you'd find at Chick-fil-A (which is definitely not a bad thing), and they taste just as juicy as the real deal.

5. Totinos Pepperoni Pizza Rolls

Pizza Rolls are a true classic, and they're the perfect frozen appetizer for any occasion. Totino's Pepperoni Pizza Rolls are ready in minutes and are an addicting combo of pepperoni pizza toppings and a golden crust. Bring these to parties to satisfy the cheesy cravings of every guest.

6. TGI Fridays Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeño poppers are my personal favorite when it comes to appetizers. The pairing of spicy jalapeño, creamy cream cheese, and crispy breading is too delectable to resist, and I can never eat less than three or four. Plus, they come with a raspberry habanero dipping sauce for even more spicy deliciousness.

7. Tai Pei Potstickers

Tai Pei also does their potstickers right, providing the perfect Asian-style appetizers for a get-together with friends. These juicy, flavorful dumplings come with a dipping sauce that makes them even tastier. Boil them, use the microwave, or cook the potstickers in a skillet to get them nice and crispy.

8. Tyson Buffalo Style Chicken Wings

Tyson's Any'tizers Hot Wings are classic bone-in chicken wings topped with spicy buffalo sauce, making them ideal for game day. For juicy chicken, crispy breading, and addictingly tasty sauce, these are the way to go. Cook in the microwave or oven, or grill them for the ultimate treat.

9. Bagel Bites Pizza Snacks

Childhood wouldn't have been the same without Bagel Bites Pizza Snacks as a late-night treat. Choose between three cheese; cheese and pepperoni; cheese, sausage and pepperoni pizza, and more to get the frozen pizza snack to fit your preferences. Bake them in the toaster oven or oven to get the crust nice and crispy, and enjoy the flavor combo of melted cheese, pepperoni and flavorful tomato sauce.

10. El Monterey Taquitos

El Monterey Taquitos are simply rolled tacos, full of authentic Mexican flavor. These snacks are made with chicken, Monterey Jack cheese and spices rolled into a crispy flour tortilla. Dip them in salsa, ranch, guacamole, cheese sauce, or snack on these flavorful frozen appetizers on their own.
