I don’t know about you but next to the commercials, the food is all I care about when it comes to Super Bowl Sunday. I heard someone say that next to Thanksgiving, it’s the most food-focused day of the year and believe that. We don’t have any skin in this game (remember… we’re an Eagles and Cowboys house) and since most of the commercials have already been released, we’ll have the game on but it’s the food that I’ll be paying attention to.
What are you serving at your house? Here’s what we’re serving at the Rooster’s House (with a side of defibrillator, apparently)
1. Buffalo Chicken Dip – If you’ve never had this, you’re missing out. Serve it up with some Scoops from Frito’s or use the same celery and carrots you’ll pair with the wings. Notice I didn’t put wings on this list at all. Because if it’s Super Bowl Sunday and you don’t have wings there, your house is awkward from the beginning.
2. Guacamole – I have a confession (man, I’ve been full of those this week, haven’t I?!) up until 2 Super Bowls ago, I hated guacamole. Like it created a visceral reaction in me I hated it so much. But one day, I happened to see a picture in a magazine of the Hidden Valley Fiesta Guacamole version and I was like…ooooohhh… make this for me, please! And from there I was hooked. Steve had to make that for me like every weekend for a month straight. I don’t eat it that often anymore but you can guarantee it will be there Sunday.
3. Potato Skins – Some people buy these made but ew, yuck. Why do that when they are SO easy to make yourself. Whenever I make baked potato soup, I freeze the skins until I’m ready for some skins. Then I deep fry them and then lay them out on a cookie sheet.. sprinkle some salt, pepper and celery salt (no joke!) on them and then put your cheddar cheese on them and then top them with crumbled bacon. Throw them in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes, put them on a platter, sprinkle them with scallions and serve with sour cream on the side. Yummo!!!
4. BLT Dip – Another dip but another one that is so worthy of game day. Or any day really. I actually won’t make this dip in my house because no joke, I could eat the whole thing and I already have enough issues with my cholesterol. (Gee.. wonder why, huh?) I think the recipe calls to serve this with corn chips, but honestly I like it better with regular ruffled potato chips.
5. Velveeta Spicy Sausage Dip – Yep… another dip. This is Mackenzie’s favorite so I have to make it for her. Honestly. And while I love this one, she makes it so frequently that I can safely not eat it and save my arteries from a little bit of clogging.
So this is our house menu for Super Bowl Sunday… and believe it or not, we do spread it out throughout the day so it’s not complete overkill and I will have a crudite on hand to be sure we get SOME veggies in the mix but beyond that, this is not a day for the weak hearted or the calorie conscious, is it?! Oh and just so you know.. there was zero brand involvement in this post!! HAHA! See… I do mean it when I say you I speak the truth!
