Bread bowls aren't just for clam chowder, they're too happy-looking to just be for clam chowder, or any chowder for that matter. In formulating a series of dips for the Food Republic Test Kitchen, I decided to transform a beloved appetizer, stuffed mushrooms. Taking the mushrooms off the heat as soon as they release their liquid will keep the shroomy flavor intact, and frying shallots in bacon fat for a little texture and added bacon flavor is just a good idea.

It's tailgating season, which means it's buffalo wing time. I love spicy buffalo wings, but I have a love/hate relationship with those celery sticks they give you. The nice cool crispy crunchiness dipped in blue cheese dressing goes so well with wings. But...celery sticks. Nobody gets excited about celery sticks. That's where this awesome blue cheese-laced coleslaw comes in.

Chris Shepherd is a big fan of the Houston Texans. So much so that the acclaimed chef behind Underbelly used to cook up delicious tailgating food for friends and fellow fans in the parking lot before games. Then, a funny thing happened. Word got out one of the city's best up-and-coming chefs was turning out refined bites within view of the AFC South team's stadium, he was approached by the team to turn his tailgating operation into a second outpost of Underbelly. This season, he opened inside NRG Stadium. Football food just took a bold leap forward.

I love potato skins, but the combination of bacon, melted cheddar and melting sour cream can actually be a little too much even for a dish that's meant to be shameless. Don't shoot, I'm only human. Instead, I load my potato skins with creamy homemade spinach feta dip, sprinkle with parmesan and broil 'til crispy on top. That way you can eat more of them.

I love making appetizers that are two or more dishes in one. When it comes to snack food, hybridize all you want. That means not choosing between spicy popcorn chicken, sesame-orange chicken and chicken wings, because you can make all three in one delicious, deep-fried bite. Here's how to do it.
