Praline Crunch from Plain Chicken turned into Praline Party Mix for Mardi Gras

It makes a great gift too!  It was featured at Marilyn’s Treats for Thursday Favorite Things

 

Raspberry Jam & Bleu Cheese BBQ Potato Chips inspired by Epicurious are delicious and I call my version Bleu Raspberry BBQ Chips

 

 

Sesame Chicken Pot Stickers from Damn Delicious turned into Vegetable Pot Stickers adapted from Half Baked Harvest

 

 

Instead of Smokey Chicken Enchilada Potato Skins from Three Olives Branch we had their Loaded Bourbon Bleu Cheese Potato Skins

 

Dreaming of Summer,  Zucchini & Pimiento Cheese Strata is perfect for any occasion

 

French Onion Soup Casserole from Laa Loosh turned into French Onion Soup Bread, an interesting twist on an old favorite which I will be posting soon

 

Hassleback Hawaiian Chicken,  original recipe is so easy, you can have dinner cooked and ready in under an hour

 

 

 

Sausage & Noodle Gratin, turned into a festive Mardi Gras Gratin

 

 

Cheesy Party Burgers from Kevin and Amanda   turned into Cheesy Bacon Party Burgers and were a big hit!

You can assemble them ahead of time then bake right before serving

 

 

 

Red Velvet Dessert Lasagna from the Cookie Rookie turned into Raspberry Cheesecake Trifle

 

This was featured at Katherine’s Corner for Favorite Things Thursday

The Flavor of the Month for February was Party! and all of these recipes are sure to bring praise at any gathering…

  2. Nice wrap up and a good reminder to print that chip recipe. I’m pretty sure I don’t need the recipe except it will remind me I want to make them when my brain gets overloaded!
