Bacon Wrapped Mushrooms
Mushrooms are an excellent vehicle for beloved bacon in these easy to make appetizers. Use toothpicks to hold the bacon in place while baking. I usually have to make a double batch of this party favorite to satisfy our guests.
Double Tomato Bruschetta
A delicious and easy appetizer. The balsamic vinegar gives it a little bite. Dried basil can be substituted but it is best with fresh.
This was a childhood memory that I was craving, so I called my nanny and she gave the recipe to me. The second I tasted it, I was flushed with happy thoughts. It tastes like caramel! Enjoy with slices of apples for a healthy snack! Be creative: You can add peanut butter, nuts or chocolate sauce, or try using strawberry flavored cream cheese. Have fun and enjoy!
Grilled Bacon Jalapeño Wraps
Bacon-wrapped, cheesy jalapeño poppers are grilled for an easy party snack.
Dog Food Dip
This "dog food" dip recipe was given to me by a co-worker some 15 or more years ago. She made it for potlucks at work, and it was always gone from the nurse's station before the rest of the food was put out! It's a simple mixture of beef, cheese, and jalapeños but it should always be made a day in advance to allow the flavors to blend. Serve with your favorite corn chips.
Bruschetta al Pomodoro
This bruschetta recipe is a great summer appetizer featuring fresh tomato salsa on toasted Italian bread.
Bruschetta with Roasted Sweet Red Peppers
This is a fast and easy appetizer or side dish which is colorful and delicious. You'll get compliments. My sons devour this in minutes!
Outrageous Warm Chicken Nacho Dip
Jazzed-up version of a classic queso dip for chips or adding to enchiladas.
