Old Bay is a staple at my house, we literally buy it in bulk at Sams Club. I use it every year during Sperrys & Stripes to make our clam boil, for summer salads, and of course for our seafood dishes. Imagine my joy as I am scrolling through the BuzzFeed site and came across this article with even more ways to incorporate Old Bay into my life. I think I’m most excited to try the recipe for french fries (and let’s be honest the Bloody Mary).
There are no exact measurements for this recipe because it’s all about personal taste. I don’t like a ton of mayo so I usually go with just enough to coat the shrimp and then load on the Old Bay.

When it comes to preparing party food phyllo cups are my best friend. They are the perfect bite size treat and provide a great base for a variety of appetizers. These mini fruit parfaits are great for brunch and only take a few minutes to prepare.
