Smoked Salmon 7-Layer Dip

This recipe is a showstopping and grown-up version of everyone’s favorite party snack—the 7-layer dip.

Sweet Potato And Brussels Sprout Okonomiyaki

For this nontraditional okonomiyaki recipe, you need to julienne the potato. Use a mandoline with the shredder attachment, or slice it very thinly into planks and then crosswise into very thin strips. Makes a terrific appetizer!

Cacio E Pepe Chips

Cacio e pepe works on so many things, this chips recipe is just our latest obsession with using the whole flavor combination.

Seedy Oat Crackers

This crackers recipe features a variety of seeds, and the combination of colors and textures is impressive, but you can use fewer types—just make sure total volume stays the same.

Mashed Potato Skordalia

Traditional Greek skordalia is mostly garlic and olive oil with some potato or nuts added to thicken it. We flipped the ratio in this recipe: more potato, less garlic. Serve as a dip, or thin out with lemon juice and olive oil and use as a sauce for fish.

Lemony Smoked Trout Dip

If you can’t find labneh, use full-fat Greek yogurt, and thicken it by letting it sit in a strainer set over a measuring cup for an hour or two.

Fritto Misto

A fun first course to serve to guests in the kitchen. By the time one batch has been devoured, the next one will be coming out of the fryer.

Tempura Green Beans

A light batter and crunchy green beans will keep you from passing out in a food coma before the main course hits.

Israeli-Style Hummus

Intentionally overcooking the chickpeas then whipping the mixture is key. Have plenty of crackers and pita chips on hand.

Sweet and Tangy Hummus

Red pepper paste gives this garlic-free hummus its color and smoky-sweet flavor; find it in Middle Eastern markets or online.

Radishes with Dukkah

“A snappy breakfast radish is the perfect vehicle for this nut and spice blend.”–Claire Saffitz, assistant food editor

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Be sure to squeeze out as much liquid as possible from the spinach. Adding spinach that is too wet could upset the creamy harmony of the rest of the ingredients.

Pistachio Dip

This savory mixture lands somewhere between dip and spread but it’s dead on delicious. Like a holiday cheeseball…minus the cheese.

Horseradish-Cheddar Cheese Ball

This is part of BA’s Best, a collection of our essential recipes. And it’s no wonder the word “best” is associated with a tangy, savory, mouthwatering cheese ball like this baby.

Citrus-Marinated Olives

Cooking the garlic, crushed coriander, bay leaves, and red chile in extra-virgin olive oil infuses the olives with their flavor.


These delicate cheese puffs always impress. Once you get the hang of the dough, you’ll serve them at every opportunity.
