Grape, blue cheese, and pecan bites. 3 ingredients! Repin to save.

I am a die-hard bargain shopper, frequenting thrift stores far and wide. Part of the fun for me is going in, not knowing what you are looking for – and leaving the store with some fabulous if unexpected items.

The last time I went to Goodwill, I stumbled upon The Deen Bros. Cookbook, Recipes from the Road, written by Jamie and Bobby Deen (of Paula Deen fame).

While the Deen brothers’ cute smiles certainly didn’t discourage me, the real reason I bought the book was for the recipes.

These addictive little snacks are super easy to make.

In 5 minutes flat, you can assemble an impressive, party-ready appetizer.

The Cost

This quick and easy appetizer is also quite cheap. Serve these bite-sized snacks at an appetizer or wine-and-cheese party – or make some to enjoy for yourself.

To save money, purchase the pecans in the bulk food section and the blue cheese in the grocery store salad bar. For 24 bite-sized snacks, I paid just over $3.00.
