March Madness Appetizers

Hello, friends! Do we have any basketball fans in the house? No? Yeah... me either. However, I'm all about making scrumptious party food! We're always looking for an excuse to enjoy a little party food and this month, March Madness is the answer! Below are some of my favorite appetizers to enjoy while watching sports

My Bacon Blue Cheese Truffles are one of the most popular recipes on Maps & Monograms. Inspired by some of my favorite pub foods, these mini-cheese balls are the perfect snack for the big game! What's even better is they take no time at all to whip up and the recipe is ridiculously easy!

Score a slam dunk with my Slammin' Queso Dip. This creamy combination of cheese, sausage, tomatoes and peppers is my ultimate-favorite dip! I could seriously eat a whole batch of this stuff by myself. It's that good! If you'd like to add a little freshness to it, you could also toss in some olives.

Cheesy Sausage Balls are a tradition here on the east coast but we Southerners add a twist to it by dipping these beauties in ranch. Trust me, everything tastes better with ranch!

Warm Chili Cheese Dip, mmmm, I'm salivating just thinking about this one ya'll. It's so stinking good! Who doesn't love the combination of chili and cheese? It's an American classic! If you haven't done so already, you have to try out this dip!

When I originally shared my Jalapeno Popper Cheeseball recipe I decided to be all cute and shape it like a football because I was serving it for a football game. With basketball you can just form it into a normal sphere and wham, bam, thank you ma'am it's festive! I love this dip because it combines the spiciness of jalapenos, the saltiness of the bacon, the freshness of the green onion and coolness of the cheese. This recipe is a crowd pleasure for sure!

These No-Bake Ranch Oyster Crackers are one of my favorite snacks from when I was younger. I recently started making them again and now I'm totally hooked!

Okay, so maybe you're a little more sophisticated than a no-bake cracker mix. I can be classy too ya'll! My Hot Caramelized Onion with Bacon and Gruyere is not only chic but it's also freakin' delicious.

If you haven't already tried the #1 recipes on Maps & Monograms, I strongly suggest you give my Chicken Bacon Alfredo Stuffed Bread a shot. It's jam packed with everyone's favorite foods, cheese, chicken, bacon and carbs, how could you go wrong with this?
