- Layered Taco dip
- Veggie platter
- Cheese platter

Deserts will be whatever guests bring....

I'd like a unique appetizer that's easy and good... I always make the taco dip and buffalo chicken (folks expect it), but I'd like something new.

Any good ideas?
thanks so much!
How about hot dogs?

If you are looking for a hit of the party appetizer, you should try making BLT Dip. It is AWESOME! Everyone at the party will end up asking you for the recipe!

Interested?

Sure would, Marcus. You can never have too many mozzarella sticks.

(My recipe is similar to Giada's - except for the Parmesan cheese.)

That's it. Easy and yummy. I eat it with some
tortilla chips.
Middie - can I add a big fat squirt of fresh lime to this? Oh boy, I know what I'm making tomorrow for a munchie!

BLT RECIPE

What you need:

1 lb. of REGULAR sliced bacon (coarsely chopped)
2 medium vine ripe tomatoes (diced)
1 cup of sour cream
1 cup of mayonaise
1 leak (optional)
1-2 loafs of baggette style or french bread

Fry the whole pound of bacon (cut the strips in thirds) to desired crispness.
Drain fat and coarsely chop the bacon up
Combine all ingredients and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.


When serving, cut up the bread in slices and spread the dip on the bread.

AWESOME RECIPE!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me know if you have any questions.
