I am planning a party in a few weeks. Do you have any tried and true foods/apps that you know are always a hit? Or what foods have you had at parties that you loved?
Individual pineapple upside down cakes (check Betty Crocker website) and pumpkin fluff dip (Google).
Pulled Pork Sliders! I just made some for a Canada Day party, and it was a big hit. Slow cooked pork shoulder, hand pulled, home made BBQ sauce, Dinner Rolls and Cole Slaw. I received 100% likes.
Haven't tried it yet, but I read about a twist on traditional Rotel cheese dip. In addition to the block of Velveeta and the can of Rotel tomatoes & green chiles, you also add a block of cream cheese and a can of cream of mushroom soup. Sounds legit.
People love when I being my jalapeños stuffed with cream cheese, wrapped in bacon and glazed with BBQ sauce, or my homemade Mac n cheese, both which are so fattening I only make them when there are plenty of people to eat them ;)
Epicurious and BigOven are the only two recipe apps I have actually used to make anything.
Get a big bowl with a flat bottom and flat sides. First put in a can of turkey chili. Then layer on some cream cheese (you can use low fat if you're looking for something healthier). Then sprinkle on some shredded cheese.
2-5 mins in microwave, depending on how strong it is. Eat with chips. Soooo good!
It's always a hit with my aunt, who is on a never-ending diet. She says she loves it, and it's a healthy option with the low-fat cream cheese and turkey chili.
And I meant tortilla chips. Can't really imagine eating it with potato chips...
Thank u lots of good ideas
I have one of those three pot crock pots and one of the best things I did was a chicken dish, a savory bread pudding, and a spice cake in each pot using recipes found on allrecipes.com. allrecipes.com/recipe/brown-sugar-spice-cake/detail.aspx.
Eight ounces cream cheese with pepper jelly on top served spread on crackers is always a hit.
Meatballs or little smokies in a crockpot with a jar of chili sauce (found near the ketchup) & a jar of grape jelly - cook until the sauce& jelly are melted together.
Good with prepared meatballs instead of little smokies.
You can also cut up smoked sausage & put it in a crockpot with brown sugar & just enough water to cover the bottom.
After reading through through this, I gather you want easy ideas. This is easy. Townhouse crackers with a piece of bacon wrapped around it & baked. I can't tell you how good they are!!!
Tostitos salsa con queso with brown hamburger and dived sweet peppers. A crowd hit.
Watermelon basil margaritas, with frozen watermelon cubes for ice.
My wife makes a cucumber salad that everyone loves. I don't. Lol
I make my moms pico de gallo that is also loved. That I love as well.
Cajun shrimp hmmmmmm
Rocky Mountain oysters are always a conversation starter. With a good hot Pico they can be pretty tasty. Just watch out for the little ones, "because sometimes Señor, the bull, he does not lose. "
I bet those steers would have preferred the chemical method. ;-)
A good chicken enchilada dip is always yummy with tortilla chips.
Easy sweet that goes a long way because its so rich...
Also great new twist on upscale banana pudding, used 3 pans at my sons graduation party two weeks ago.
It's really this one
Sounds easy and good
It is my niece helped me make it. i just found the banana pudding link, it has pepperidge farm cookies!
Some roast beef, some chicken, a pizza...
Search for a recipe for artichoke and cheese dip - find a hot one - it is delish and people love it
Cream cheese with salsa over the top - people love this. You can use crackers or tortilla chips. And it is so easy - set your block of cream cheese out to soften a bit
Just a jar of salsa? Use the whole jar?
Yes - just put the block of cream cheese in a shallow dish and pour a whole jar (or whatever will fit - but you want a lot) of salsa over top
Pepper jelly (store bought) over cream cheese is always a hit, too.
That's true bamagirl
I always make meringues! And what I recently learned is that if you out vertical stripes of food coloring in the piping bag you can get colorful swirled meringues :$
Rlands - respectfully and in the most good natured way i decline. You want me to get out pastry bags and pipe meringue. Are you confusing me with Martha Stewart. .
Hahaha that's actually where I got the recipe :) it's really easy. Whip 1/4c sugar for each egg white, add a dash of vanilla, throw it into a plastic bag with a corner cut off and there you go!
This from someone who buys 10 bags of flour at once and thinks thats normal :)
Hahaha I'm surprised you remembered! I'm about halfway done with it :)
Yikes. What do you spend your life in the kitchen?
Haha a lot of it, yes! It's probably my favorite hobby. :)
