On the day of the big game, we get together to watch football and have fun, but we also gather for another important reason: eating delicious food. Typical fare for Super Bowl parties includes crowd-pleasers such as wings, pizza, burgers, and nachos. Those things are popular for a reason–they’re delicious–but we’re offering ideas to put your own twist on traditional Super Bowl recipes. Make your mark and wow your guests with these 3 spins on classic favorites.
1 store-bought rotisserie chicken
1/4 cup hot sauce (recommended: Frank’s Red Hot)
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 3/4 cups sharp Cheddar
1/4 cup freshly sliced scallions
1 cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups panko bread crumbs
Vegetable oil, for frying
Blue Cheese Dip:
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
1/2 cup packed blue cheese, broken up
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
Shred chicken and place in a large bowl, then add the hot sauce, pepper, cheese, and scallions, tossing to combine. Roll into golf ball-sized balls. Dip each ball into flour, then the eggs, and then the breadcrumbs. Fry in 350 degree oil for 2 minutes and drain on paper towel-lined plate. Serve with sauce and enjoy!
1/2 cup mayonnaise
One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Monterey Jack cheese
2 green onions, finely chopped
1 dash cayenne pepper
8 butter crackers, crushed, such as Ritz
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Corn chips, crackers or bagel chips, for serving
Mix cheeses, onions, and pepper. Bake in a shallow baking dish for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Top with bacon and serve with chips.
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
4 to 5 tablespoons hot water
3 to 4 teaspoons baking cocoa
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and beat well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine dry ingredients and then incorporate slowly into wet. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours. Roll out dough on a lightly-floured surface and cut with a football-shaped cookie cutter. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
For the icing, mix sugar and hot water until desired consistency. Set aside 3 tablespoons. Add cocoa to remaining glaze and spread on cookies. Pipe white glaze on cookies to form football laces.
