Serve these hearty appetizers at your next party. Choose from a spicy Buffalo Chicken Skillet Dip or a loaded Meat & Potatoes Crostada.
If you are hosting a party or a having friends over to watch a game and you want some stick-to-your-ribs, fill ’em up style appetizers these two recipes will fit the bill.
The Buffalo Skillet Chicken Dip has a ring of french bread around the outside your party guests can break off and scoop out the hot and bubbly dip.
I have to admit that buffalo chicken dip is not a beautiful looking dish but it’s such a popular appetizer to serve at parties that I tried to dress it up a bit. The puffs of bread around the outer perimeter of the dip add a nice touch aesthetically plus they add a wonderful balance of flavor to the spicy dip.
I love that this dip is baked and served in an oven-safe skillet, so there isn’t a lot of mess to clean up. That’s always a good thing at the end of the night when your party guests have all gone home.
You can find the recipe over at Tablespoon.com.
If you aren’t a fan of spicy food then this Meat & Potatoes Crostada may be more to your liking. It is loaded with sausage, bacon, cheese, and mashed potatoes and surrounded by a flaky pie crust.
Making a crostada is so simple yet the rustic looking savory tart is quite eye-appealing.
Serve slices of this appetizer with a big dollop of sour cream and maybe even sprinkle on some diced tomatoes. This recipe is hearty enough to be served as a meal along with a side salad, is pretty enough to be served at any party, but simple enough to make that it’s a perfect snack to serve while watching the game with your friends.
