Buffalo Chicken Flatbread

It’s time to welcome in the New Year: 2022! And we’re not just tip-toeing into January, we’re starting the year with a BANG! There’s no better way to do that than with some tantalizing, spicy recipes. Think: buffalo chicken, spicy sausage, and cheesy jalapeño.

Every New Year’s celebration is what you make it. And, this year, we’re going bold with optimism for the future and these piquant dishes. No matter how or where you’re celebrating this year, we hope you’re inspired by these three new recipes to start 2022 with a BANG!

Cheesy Jalapeno Ham Sliders

Cheesy Jalapeño Ham Sliders

You can have these sliders on the table in 30 minutes by splitting two sheets of Party Rolls crosswise and topping each bottom sheet with garlic mayonnaise, chopped jalapeños, ham, Swiss, and mozzarella cheese. Then, close the sliders and top with garlic butter and poppy seeds. Bake for 10-15 minutes and, voila! You have a snackable appetizer for your hungry crowd waiting for the ball to drop.


  • 1 Pack Martin’s Party Potato Rolls
  • 1 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 5 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 Jalapeño Peppers, seeded and thinly chopped
  • ½ lb of Deli Ham, sliced thin
  • ½ lb of Swiss Cheese, sliced thin
  • 1 Cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
  • Garlic Butter
    • 8 Tablespoons Butter, melted
    • 2 Tablespoons Grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
    • 1 ½ Teaspoons Poppy Seeds

Why it Works

The combination of cheese and spicy jalapeño is hard to resist (think: queso, jalapeño poppers, etc.), and this recipe is no exception. An irresistible, handheld snack, this recipe is great for hosting or toting along as a dish to share.

Slow Cooker Spicy Sausage Dip

Slow Cooker Spicy Sausage Dip

This sausage-based dish certainly packs a punch, and its low-maintenance prep makes it perfect for any party or gathering. Just toss all of the ingredients into a slow cooker and let cook on high until the cheese is melty and bubbly. Alternatively, you can prepare this recipe in a pot over the stove! Simply put, if you have a kitchen, you can make this dip.


  • 1 lb Spicy Italian Sausage, browned and drained
  • 16 oz Sour Cream
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese, room temperature
  • 2 Cups Shredded Colby-Jack Cheese
  • ¼ Cup Green Onion, sliced
  • 1 Jalapeño, minced
  • 1 Cup Salsa
  • 1 Loaf Martin’s Potato Bread, baked into Toast Crackers

Full recipe:

Why it Works

We love this dip for New Year’s Eve because it’s got just enough spice to keep it interesting, yet is palatable for those who don’t want to feel the burn all night. Plus, it’s got all the best elements of a great dip: flavorful meat, a few spices and herbs, and plenty of cheese.
