Summer is in full swing and I'm guessing you've already been invited to your fair share of bbqs, cookouts and parties. Am I right? If so, you've probably been stuck in the unfortunate position of filling your plate with delicious food and then not being able to find a place to sit. In these situations, you're then forced to try to balance your plate in one hand and use a fork, spoon, or even a knife, with one hand. The end result- MESSY! Potentially even disastrous if you drop your plate. 

The best way to eliminate this pesky problem, in my opinion, is to encourage people to choose finger foods! That way you can fill your plate, but you can also easily eat sitting down or standing up! Just grab and eat!

So in the spirit of making your life easier, I rounded up 21 delicious finger food recipes that would make perfect appetizers for a bbq and don't require any utensils to eat!
