Tried and True Superbowl Recipes

Posted on January 30th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

The Superbowl is less than a week away and you are probably already planning your menus. It’s important to plan so you can try and use coupons and check out all the sales. Here are a few of my most favorite recipes that I make almost every year. They are generally pretty inexpensive to make and they are a MAJOR crowd pleasers!

Apache Bread Dip (or what I like to call, “crack dip”)

1 (9 inch) round bread loaf, I like to use the Hawaiian Bread
16 ounces sharp cheddar cheese , grated
8 ounces cream cheese , softened
1/2 cup green onion , minced
8 ounces sour cream
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 (4 1/2 ounce) cans green chilies , chopped
1 cup ham , chopped

Cut the top of the bread off reserving the top.
Hollow out the inside.
Combine remaining ingredients and mix well.
Fill the bread with the cheese mixture.
Replace the top.
Place on a cookie sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for one hour and 10 minutes.
Serve with tortilla chips and leftover bread that you scooped out.

Jalapeno Poppers
Slightly more difficult than the dip, but so worth it. These are my husband’s favorite!
12 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 (8 ounce) package shredded Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon bacon bits
12 ounces jalapeno peppers, seeded and halved
1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup dry bread crumbs
2 quarts oil for frying
In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, Cheddar cheese and bacon bits. Spoon this mixture into the jalapeno pepper halves.
Put the milk and flour into two separate small bowls. Dip the stuffed jalapenos first into the milk then into the flour, making sure they are well coated with each. Allow the coated jalapenos to dry for about 10 minutes.
Dip the jalapenos in milk again and roll them through the breadcrumbs. Allow them to dry, then repeat to ensure the entire surface of the jalapeno is coated.
In a medium skillet, heat the oil to 365 degrees F ( 180 degrees C). Deep fry the coated jalapenos 2 to 3 minutes each, until golden brown. Remove and let drain on a paper towel.

Sausage Balls
Ok, I admit I shared this at Christmas, but these really are my favorite appetizer and I make them every excuse I have. Do yourself a favor and make these!

2 (16 ounce) packages regular flavor pork sausage
1 1/2 cups all-purpose baking mix
4 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons minced garlic (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 F.
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl; stir well. Form into 1inch balls.
Place on ungreased baking sheet; bake 18-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from oven; cool 5 minutes before removing from pan.
Serve with cocktail forks or toothpicks.

Pulled Pork Mini Sandwiches
This is by far the easiest thing you can make and people will think you spent hours on it.

Pork Roast
BBQ sauce
Cajun seasoning
Rolls (I get them from the bakery at my local store)

Turn your crock pot on low and place the pork roast in.
Season roast with Cajun seasoning.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours or until meat shreds easily.
Shred meat.
It will make a little broth, leave it in.
Pour BBQ over shredded meat and let cook for another hour.
Serve on mini buns.
