5 Recipes for “Snacky” Dinners

We love snacky dinners. Little bites of several dishes or dips and veggies are always fun to eat and easy to prepare ahead of time so that you can eat when you want. We sometimes plan a game night or movie night around these dinners to make them even more fun!

Garlic Shrimp Dip (click for link to recipe)

Garlic Shrimp Dip with crostini, crackers, or crisp vegetables is delicious! Simple to make ahead and refrigerate until you are ready to heat and serve. My family loves dips for dinner with cocktail meatballs or Little Smokies Sausages (see below). A green side salad and I feel just fine about a snacky dinner.

Egg and Feta Bites (click for link to recipe)

These bites are made in pre-made shells which makes them super easy to make. You can add extra garlic, minced onions, or spices such as dill to make them to your taste! They are good plain but are even better when you add extra flavorings that your family likes.

Mac & Cheese Pizza Bites (click for link to recipe)

These are a super hit in our house whenever we made them. Easy to make and fun to eat these little Mac & Cheese Pizza Bites pack in the flavor. A side of pizza dipping sauce and they are AMAZING!

Barbecue Chicken French Bread Pizza (click for link to recipe)

We went through a phase where we made everything into French Bread Pizzas. We love this recipes. Super easy to make because you don’t need to make the dough and it has tons of delicious sauce, chicken, and cheese. Slice the bread into 8 pieces when it has set for a few minutes and everyone can dig in!

Sweet Little Smokies in Slow Cooker (click for link to recipe)

Sweet Little Smokies Sausages are one of those items that we love. I only serve them two -three times a year but they are always a hit! So easy to make in a slow cooker and half of your dinner is ready when you want to sit down to watch a movie, chat with friends, or just have a pick up meal.

Hope these give you some ideas for a fun snacky dinner! We are making Calzones today for our dinner. What are you having?
