Give them a try at your next family get together.

Mouthwatering Baked Buffalo Chicken: These baked chicken breast halves, cut into strips and dressed with Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise make for a great main course recipe because they’re easy to make, easy to serve and very easy to eat. Serve them on wooden skewers with cut vegetables and a dipping sauce.

Pineapple Jalapeno Wings with Creamy Dipping Sauce: A spicy recipe that’s easy to prepare, thanks to the savory taste of Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Light Mayonnaise. This dish is usually thought of as a popular party appetizer, but if you make a little extra, it becomes a perfect main course. Serve them with your favorite dip and a salad to complete the meal.

Serrano-Lime Marinated Shrimp: An appetizer that easily turns into a main course. The flavor and crunchiness that Country Crock® Spread adds to baked shrimp will make everyone’s mouth water. Serve with tortillas and a salsa verde.

Easy Tuna Ceviche: Ceviche is a staple in many Latin homes, and even though it’s enjoyed as an appetizer, it can also be a perfect main course for dinner. Instead of putting the ceviche directly on the plate as usual, serve the ceviche made with Knorr® Chicken flavor Bouillon on lettuce leaves, accompanied by fried plantains or chips.

Chicken Nuggets with BBQ Sauce: Delight your guests with a night of homemade nuggets. Adults and kids alike will love the idea of sharing an appetizer that’s transformed into such a delicious main course. Pair these nuggets with barbecue sauce and raw, cut veggies.

These fast and simple appetizer recipes transformed into main courses will surprise your guests and earn you the title of the family’s best hostess.
