These mushrooms are topped with bacon and two kinds of cheese, and then are cooked in a pool of butter. Yes, this dish is heavenly. We've never tried Bobby Flay's recipe, but we know that this version from SheSpeaks member erinvictoria19 will earn raves at your Big Game party.
If you are looking for something a little lighter, and you love hot wings, try these Buffalo Cauliflower Bites from SheSpeaks member CupcakesAndCrossbones. They're easy to make and come out crispy from the oven. This one will please vegetarians and meat-eaters alike!
Shrimp cocktail is always a hit, but this version comes with an easy-to-make homemade dipping sauce that elevates it to another level. Just mix Pace Chunky Salsa with chopped cucumbers, avocado, jalapenos and cilantro. We especially love how forksandfolly shows it on her Instagram page - with individual cups of dip. No more double-dip worry!
Here's another twist on an old-favorite: Avocado Deviled Eggs. Originally from Food Network star Katie Lee, but submitted by SheSpeaks member rkosully, these eggs prove that avocado is not just for guacamole.
Made with ground sirloin, biscuit mix and provolone cheese, this bite is the perfect addition to any party buffet. Submitted by SheSpeaks member Kimbr1968 from Rachel Ray's cooking show, it's the big taste of cheesesteak in a small bite-size package.
