Buffalo Chicken Wings in a Jar

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
Double-dip all you want! Each person gets their very own jar.

Fully Loaded Deviled Eggs

Rating: 4.5 stars 61
My children and husband go nuts over these. I made them for a potluck at work and have been asked for them ever since. (If you can keep people out of them, you're doing better than I ever could.) The time that I spend prepping this depends on how fast you shell your eggs. I have two girls so we knock this out in about 30 minutes (minus cooking time).

Strawberry Bruschetta

Rating: 4.5 stars 46
This is a delicious variation of the popular tomato based appetizer. The strawberries are warm and sweet and the sugar is caramelized and crunchy! Your guests will love it!

Creamy Cheesy Spinach Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 90
This recipe doesn't contain mayo or sour cream like most, so it's very cheesy and very delicious. I'm asked for the recipe every time I make it. For those who don't want a strong cheese like Cheddar, you can replace it with anything you like or even leave it out altogether. I like adding the Cheddar because it adds color and a little more flavor.

Air-Fried Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

Rating: 4.5 stars 7
These air-fried bacon-wrapped shrimp are simple to put together with only 4 ingredients, but big on flavor!

Crab Stuffed Mushrooms

Chef John's Hot Sloppy Joe Dip

Rating: 4.5 stars 39
For me this checks all the boxes for a hot party dip. It's relatively cheap and easy to make, but maybe more importantly, it's great hot, warm, or room temp. And it's also incredibly versatile.

Cinco de Mayo Salsa Cruda

Rating: 4.5 stars 45
Cherry tomatoes give this salsa real summer flavor.

Asparagus Wrapped in Crisp Prosciutto

Rating: 4.5 stars 272
Asparagus spears are wrapped in a sheath of prosciutto, then baked until crispy.

Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Rating: 5 stars 1882
Time consuming but it is well worth it! The brown sugar and bacon grease combine beautifully and give such a great taste.
