6 Winning Super Bowl Recipes

January 29, 2015

Are you hosting a Super Bowl party this weekend? Or in charge of preparing a dish? Not to fret. Below are some irresistible appetizers that are easy and delicious!

Bacon-Wrapped Dates: the perfect combination of sweet and salty - very addictive.

*quantity is based upon party size. 2:1 ratio of dates to bacon strips

- Preheat the oven to 350
- Cut the bacon strips in half.
- Wrap date with bacon (I suggest securing the bacon with a toothpick, this also makes it easy for people to pick them up)

- Place the dates on a baking sheet.
- Cook for about 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes.

For a bit more of a crunch, you can substitute the dates for water chestnuts!

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus: Do you see a theme here? Just kidding - sadly, the bacon ends here.

*similar to above. Quantity ratio is 3:1 of asparagus spears to bacon strips

- Turn element or BBQ on to Medium-high (I prefer the bbq for these but the stove top works too!)
- I like to wrap 1 full strip of bacon around 2 - 3 spears of asparagus.

On the stove:
- Cook for about 5-7 minutes per side.

On the grill:
- Place the spears directly on the grill
- Cook for 10 minutes, turning after 5 minutes

Mexican Style Nacho Dip: I acquired this recipe from a friend years ago - it is the best nacho dip I have ever made and it is always a hit!

500mL sour cream
8oz cream cheese
1 pkg taco seasoning
1 tomato, diced
1 cup of cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup green onions, chopped

- Mix sour cream and cream cheese together with a blender
- Add in taco seasoning until combined
- Put mixture into a serving dish
- Garnish with cheese, tomato and onion

Tomatoes with Mozzarella: A staple in our house. One of my husband's favorite snacks!

- Slice tomatoes and mozzarella
- Prepare tomatoes on plate with mozzarella on top.
- Sprinkle with fresh basil, salt and pepper and olive oil (I prefer to drizzle balsamic vinegar on top as well)

Meatballs: Because what's a football game without them! Another delicious recipe I acquired from a family gathering.

1 box of frozen Swedish meatballs
1 Tbsp butter
1 medium white onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup grape jelly (not jam)
1/2 cup water
1 1/4 cup of chili sauce

- In a pan over medium heat, melt butter
- Saute onions until soft and transparent
- Add garlic, jelly, water and chili sauce
- Bring to a boil, then let simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes
- Add meatballs and let simmer for another 20 minutes

Or indulge in one of my favorite guilty pleasures, Deep Fried Pickles! I have not made this tasty treat at home before but the recipe here sounds delicious! Especially with the spicy mayo sauce for dipping!

What are some of your game day favorites?
