I need appetizer ideas. My son's 2nd B-day is this Saturday and I'm going shopping today. I need easy peasy recipes. It doesn't have to be as simple as opening a bag and pouring salsa in a bowl, but along those lines. I just don't have time to get too elaborate. I'm drawing a blank help me out!!!!! Huh

I've got a dip recipe that's super easy to make but everyone LOVES it!!!  Seriously, people beg me to make this stuff.  I'll post it if you're interested.  Not sure if you want something this simple.

Okay, this is the best.  I can't remember where I first found it, but I think it may have been on the Food Network.  Good stuff.

Anyway, here goes:

2 large Spanish onions
1 stick butter (salted)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more if you like it spicier)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
salt and pepper to taste

Halve the onions and cut into very thin (1/8 inch) slices.  In a large frying pan, heat the oil and butter at medium-high heat until butter is melted.  Add the onions and cook for 10 minutes, stirring often.  Add salt, pepper and cayenne to your liking (remember, this is the only seasoning in the entire recipe).  Turn the heat down to low and cook onions for another 20 minutes until caramelized.  Remove from heat and allow the onion mixture to cool completely.

In a standing mixer (or with an electric beater) mix the sour cream, mayo and cream cheese until well combined.  Fold in the onion mixture until all ingredients are well blended. 

Refrigerate and serve with chips.


This is so good with any kind of chips (I prefer Kettle chips), but it's also good on sandwiches and I'm told it's especially good on burgers.

Oh, and it lasts about three to four days in the fridge.  If you can make it a day ahead of time, it's especially good if you let the flavors hang out together overnight.

Deviled eggs are always a hit. Plus, another make ahead.

I'd get some different crackers and cheeses.  that always seems to be a hit.  or cut up some fruits and make a fruit platter.

Are there going to be 2 year olds there?  Make something they'd like -

celery sticks with peanut butter with raisins on them...

vanilla wafers with little bowls of vanilla yogurt to dip them in - tres chic and yummy.

apple slices with caramel dip (also in individual bowls, 2 year olds cannot share)

CHeers!

Gothmom

oh yes and the artichoke dip I am famous for...

I can of artichoke hearts (drained and cut up)
1 cup of mayonnaise
1 cup of parmesean cheese.

Mix all in a bowl
Microwave for about a minute or 2

Serve with crackers, chips, bread, whatever.

ALways gets rave reviews.   Simplest hot dip evar.

Easiest dip style stuff I can think of is:
You can just have as is or add to
A can of refried beans warmed up
Additions: black olives, grated cheese, tomatoes, sour cream, green onions, guacamole, bacon bits

Potato skins, simply slice potatoes in half and half again or however you like cook, top with cheese, bacon, sour cream and onion if you prefer

Someone already said, Deviled eggs

Pigs in a blanket (hot dogs wrapped in bisquit dough with out w/out cheese) and kids love them!

The easiest but a little time consuming classic meat and cheese platter rolled up meat and slices of cheese, can also serve on or with crackers.

Trail mix = Chex mix, with m&ms, raisins, any other dried fruit or things you can think of.

Thats all I can think of for now. Good luck! Smiley
