Caramelized Onion Dip With Crispy Shallots
While there’s nothing wrong with french onion dip from a packet, this gourmet take on the traditional party dip can’t be beaten. With a flavor that is slightly sweet, intensely savory, and a touch tangy, you’ll want to make a double batch. It helps that this recipe is insanely simple, you’ll only need one pan and the serving bowl, and you’ll be good to go.
Cajun Sausage Puffs with Bourbon Mustard
If you’re looking for a simple and crowd-pleasing snack that offers an excellent payoff for minimal work, these sausage puffs are the way to go. Simply wrap pre-cooked andouille sausages in puff pastry that has been cut into strips. Brush the pastry with egg and bake according to the package just before serving. Cut into desired sizes and serve with whole grain mustard mixed with bourbon and honey to taste.
Buffalo Chicken Celery Sticks
While this recipe is a little more complicated, these Buffalo chicken celery sticks are a must for any super bowl party. Begin by creating a sauce of buffalo style hot sauce, butter, vinegar, Worcestershire, cayenne pepper, garlic, salt, and cream cheese. These ingredients will then be combined with pre-cooked and shredded chicken until thoroughly coated. The mixture can be kept separate until ready to serve to prevent the celery from going soft. Top cut celery slices with the mix and drizzle with ranch or blue cheese and top with scallions.
Loaded Tot Kabobs
Looking for an easy and comforting snack that will please both children and adults? Start with frozen tater tots cooked according to the package. Let them cool briefly and place six at a time on skewers, lining them up on a foil lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the skewers with shredded cheese and bacon bits and return the pan to the oven to allow the cheese to melt. Serve with sour cream mixed with fresh scallion.
