A bunch of nasty little foods on platters at a social event. Often they are the only meal served during the entire event because the hosts are too cheap to provide a main course.
Dude, they found maggots in the hors d'oeuvres at the company party, so nobody had anything to eat the entire evening.

A meal you eat. Usually comes right before dinner. I'm getting really hungry now!
We ate antipasta as our hors d'œuvres.
