Here is one that is ALWAYS gone whenever we take it anywhere, and my husband always insists on it for Christmas, New Years, Superbowl, Easter, Tuesdays.....LOL

Large brick of Velveeta
Spicy roll of sausage (1 lb?)
can of cream of mushroom soup

Brown sausage and then combine everything in crockpot until well melted. Serve with tortilla chips. Very good! You can also use mexican velveeta to make it even spicier, or use regular sausage to cut down on the spice.

This is a great thread.

The brie that I make is also a PAula Dean. Take a piece of puff pastry and a piece of brie in the center. You can cut the top off the brie and place walnuts and brown sugar on it. Wrap up the brie and bake until the pastry if brown.

Another one that I make ahead and have in the freezer is pigs in the blanket. Thaw out 2 sheets of puff pastry.. Lay some good hotdogs on the edge. You might have to cut a hotdog to complete the row. Roll up and seal with some water. The puff pastry is folded into thirds and you can get 3 rolls using 1 and a 1/2 hotdogs from each sheeet of puff pastry. It will take 1 lb of hotdogs for 1 box of puff pastry. I then refreeze and take out when I need them. Bake in a 400 degree oven until brown. Make these ahead of time and it is one less thing to do. I have also been known to cut them after I make them and freeze them on a cookie sheet. When frozen put into a ziplock bag and take out as many as needed,

Thanks fo all the great suggestions.

.
This reminds me of something my aunt used to make but instead of using brown sugar and walnuts, she used apricot preserves. It was FABULOUS!

These are our favourite appetizers (next to the meatballs with grape jelly & chili sauce!)


Stuffed Mushrooms:

1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
1 pkg bacon,
Large fresh mushrooms

Fry bacon until crisp, crumble. Heat cream cheese slightly in the microwave to soften (30 seconds or so), or have at room temperature. Mix with crumbled bacon, and then remove stems from mushrooms and stuff with mixture. Put on baking sheet and bake at 350 for 20-25 mins, until mushrooms are soft. Sometimes I mix a little parmesan cheese in, but they are delicious just the way they are. Serve warm, and they will disappear!

Gosh, I want to make all of these. I am making a few of them, for something new. We also make this:

BAKED BRIE SPREAD

1 (8 oz.) wheel Brie or Camembett (I peel the top hard stuff off)
2 tbsp. (1/4 stick) butter, room temperature
1/4 c. sliced almonds
Fresh bread, sliced apples or pears, and I love to top it with raspberry jam (the one without the seeds).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set Brie in ovenproof serving dish. Spread butter over top. Arrange sliced almonds on butter. Bake until softened and heated through, about 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm with bread, apples or pears. 4 to 6 servings.

Hmm..I think I'll make some tonight, just to make sure it will be good tomorrow.

Here's another super easy one.

Stuffed Mushrooms

1 Pound Whole Mushrooms Cleaned and Stems Removed
1/3 Cup Melted Butter
Package of Stouffers Spinach Souflee (Thawed)
Shreaded Cheddar Cheese

Dip each cap into melted butter and spoon a generous amount of spinach souflee into each. Top with the shreaded cheese and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

These are really good and couldn't be easier. I only use 1/2 of the spinach package per package of mushrooms, so you can freeze any leftovers for next time.

Here's our family's favorite mexican dip.

Montezuma's Revenge

1 can refried beans
1 pound ground beef (browned and drained)
1 small can jalapeno relish or salsa
1 small bottle taco sauce
1 pkg. shredded cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 bag Fritos scoops

In shallow casserole layer ingredients in order listed, except for sour cream and Fritos. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Spread sour cream on top. Turn oven off and let sit in warm oven about an hour. Serve with Fritos.


Another favorite is:

Sausage Balls

1 pound sausage
2 cups baking mix (Bisquick)
1 cup shredded cheese
1/2 cup water

Fry sausage and drain. Put Bisquick in large bowl. Add cheese and water. Add sausage. Mix with hands. Roll into balls. Bake on cookie sheet at 350 about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Recipe can easily be doubled.


Hot Chicken Dip

2 cups cooked chopped chicken
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 8 oz. cream cheese
1 small pkg. sliced almonds
garlic powder
salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients and heat in sauce pan, stirring occasionally. Serve on Wheat Thins or other crackers.

Spinach Dip

In medium bowl blend 1 envelope Lipton Vegetable Soup mix, 1 (16 oz) sour cream, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, and 1/2 tsp. lemon juice.

Stir in 1 package (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach - thawed and squeezed dry.

Add 1 can water chestnuts, drained and chopped.

Chill. Makes about 3 cups dip.

Here's one my DH loves, and it is low fat:

Ham-Tortilla rolls

flour tortillas
1 8oz cream cheese (we use 1/3 less fat, the no fat version is lumpy)
1 jar salsa (you choose how hot)
shredded ham

mix cream cheese and salsa; spread on tortilla, add ham, roll up. Slice. We have found they slice easier if they have been refrigerated.

Another I love is Veggie Pizzas

1 can cresent rolls
1 8oz cream cheese (1/3 less fat)
1 pack dry ranch dressing
1-2 tbs. sour cream (low fat/no fat)
1 pack of broccoli-califlower-carrot mix*
shredded cheese

Chop veggies (grating works well, too), spread cresent rolls on cookie sheet-push together the seams- and bake. Mix cream cheese, ranch dressing, and sour cream. When cresents cool, spread mix on them then spread veggies and cheese on top. Refrigerate. Cut into squares.

*any veggies can be used; I added green onions this year

This is a bit pricey because of the cheese, but so worth it. People love them because of the surprise center. They look like mini cheese balls, but then have the burst of grape inside!


Roquefort grapes

1 10-oz. package of finely chopped, toasted nuts such as: pistachios, or almonds, or pecans or walnuts
12 oz. crumbled Roquefort cheese or Gorgonzola
1 8-oz. package cream cheese (room temperature)
3 tablespoons heavy cream
1 lb. seedless green grapes, washed and dried

If you get get untoasted nuts: Toast nuts in a 275° oven, then chop coarsely in a food processor or by hand. Spread on a platter.

Combine cream cheese, Roquefort and cream in a bowl, and beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Drop clean, dry grapes into the cheese mixture and gently roll by hand to coat them completely (like a peanut M&M.) Then roll them in the toasted nuts and put on a tray lined with wax paper. Chill until ready to serve.

2 pkgs frozen chopped spinach - thaw and roll in cheesecloth and squeeze, squeeze, SQUEEZE out all the liquid.

Mix with one large brick cream cheese and about 1/4 c. chopped bacon bits, and a little black pepper.

Roll into tortillas, like a hy-roller sandwich, slice and serve. Also good with the red pepper tortillas. Flour ones are way better than corn for this, IMNHO.

Harry & Davids Pepper & Onion Relish



Take half of that jar & mix it with 8 oz of cream cheese & do not share with anyone. Keep in the kitchen with you & a box of crackers/triscuits while you are cooking & declaire you do not want any help or anyone to set foot near the kitchen!


Mexican Dip-apread an 8x8 (give or take) pan with cream cheese followed by your favorite salsa on top of the cream cheese & then add mexican cheese on top of it & bake until the cheese is melted.


I can't think of anymore right now since I am hungry (haven't eaten dinner yet) & this thread is making me want to go to the store & buy everything & eat it all in one sitting!
