These recipes are so easy and delicious! I literally could eat appetizers for every meal and be completely satisfied. Does anyone else think they’re better than some meals? For Super Bowl parties bringing an appetizer is almost always a must! These options will have mouths watering and asking for more, including your recipe! Furthermore, the last dish is actually a family recipe of mine, that came from my Nana. It’s requested at just about every family gathering. The second appetizer has also been a favorite of my families and requested often. The first recipe is a dish I can never get enough of! In conclusion, I’ll be at the Super Bowl Party for the food, y’al. Seriously these appetizers are so yummy, I might have to whip up some now…

Bacon & Cream Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Take out 4 ounces of cream cheese from the fridge to let soften.
  3. Cook about 6 pieces of bacon on the stovetop.
  4. Wash 1 pound of button mushrooms thoroughly in the sink, using a clean paper towel to pat dry and rub off any excess. Remove the stems from the mushrooms. It’s easiest to use your thumb to gently pop them out. Take the mushroom stems and chop them up.
  5. Once the bacon is cooked, pat dry with paper towels and chop into bits. Keep in mind, the bacon bits will be going into your stuffed mushrooms. Consequently, the bigger they are, the chunkier your stuffing will be.
  6. Take the chopped mushroom stems and fry them in the remaining bacon grease until golden brown.
  7. Next add the cooked mushroom stems, bacon bits, and softened cream cheese. (For extra flavor, 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp. onion powder, and/or 1/2 tsp. grater parmesan cheese may be added but is not required). Stir gently until mixed. Take 1 tbsp. of the cream cheese stuffing and add it to each of the empty mushroom caps.
  8. Bake 18-20 minutes or until the filling is heated through. Enjoy!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Take out an 8 ounce package of cream cheese to soften. (I like to use the portioned carton).
  3. Chop 2 cups of cooked chicken and place into mixing bowl.
  4. Add to mixing bowl: 1/2 cup Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wings Sauce, 1/2 Blue Cheese Dressing, 1/2 Blue Cheese Crumbles, and the 8 ounce package of softened cream cheese.
  5. Stir and mix well. I like to use a potato masher to thoroughly mix the cream cheese, this way it cooks more evenly and the taste is uniform.
  6. Spoon ingredients into a shallow 1 quart baking dish.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes. Let sit for 5-10 minutes if a more solid dip is desired.
  8. Serve with celery sticks, Tostitos chips, and/or crackers. Yummy!
