Superbowl Recipes

February 2, 2010

Yaaaay! The Superbowl is this coming Sunday! Football! Rah Rah!! Okay, confession. I am really really not into football. But Superbowl is pretty much a national holiday, and a food holiday at that. To be more specific, Superbowl is a snack food holiday. Party foods!! And we here at the Food Blog Mafia are ALL about parties, even if we’re not all into the fooz-ball (but some of us are…just not me… the one writing the Superbowl post…hrmm…)

Last week, George from St. Louis Magazine contacted the FBM, wanting to use Iron Stef’s bacon kettle corn for a superbowl food segment on a local news sports segment, and asking for other guy-friendly party foods from us. Besides the kettle corn, Annie gave him cheese popcorn, and I clued him into the wondrousness of Rolo pretzels. Here is a video of the segment and the recipes used.

Oh, but we have more. Of course we do!! We like to party. Here are some Party food recipes from the FBM girls, never before posted on our individual blogs!! If we had a Superbowl party, it would pretty much be the best ever 🙂

Philly Fondue from Annie

  • 2 blocks of Philly Cream Cheese
  • 1 jar of dried beef
  • 1 tbsp dried mustard
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 c. milk
  • 1/4 c. chives finely chopped

In heavy saucepan, over medium heat melt milk with philly. When  combined well, and smooth…Add remaining ingredients. Serve with  crusty bread.

KBO’s Guac

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 1/2 chopped red onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 small Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • juice of one lime
  • chopped cilantro, salt, pepper, and cumin to taste

Mash everything together.  Serve with crudite or tortilla chips.

New Orleans Barbecued Shrimp from Kelly

  • 2 pounds shrimp (shell on)
  • 2 tablespoons creole seasoning (recipe below)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 head of garlic, peeled and minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Tabasco to taste
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/3 cup beer
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ½ cup butter

Toss the shrimp with the creole seasoning. Preheat a large skillet, add the oil and sauté the garlic and rosemary briefly. Add the shrimp, then add the Worcestershire, Tabasco, and lemon juice. Deglaze the pan with the beer and let reduce to half of the original volume. Taste and adjust the seasonings. (Add more creole seasoning if desired.) Remove the pan from the heat. Remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon. Swirl in the butter. Pour the sauce over the shrimp and serve immediately with French bread and napkins!

For the creole seasoning:

  • 4 tablespoons sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic or onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil

Mix together all of the ingredients. Makes ½ cup.

Best of Both Worlds Margaritas (Otherwise known as “Trouble”) from Steph

Put 1 12 oz. can of frozen limeade into a pitcher. Add a limeade can’s worth of tequila and a can’s worth of water. Then add a 12 oz. can of light, Mexican beer (I recommend Tecate). Stir. Serve with ice in a glass rimmed with salt. Use with caution.

Hot Wing Dip from Annie

Spread a package or two of cream cheese in the bottom of an oven proof dish.  Just enough for a good base. Mix grilled diced chicken with hot wing sauce (sweet baby rays is the best), top with blue cheese and cheddar. Bake till bubbly. Serve with tortilla chips or sliced french baguette.  Some folks sub ranch dressing for the blue cheese but…I can’t bring myself to do that.

My Little Bro’s Famous Queso Dip from Steph

I asked my Brother for this recipe, because it goes fast at his parties. I cannot stand American cheese, but, somehow,  I could eat this dip all dang day. I’m so proud of my little brother… he really can cook (don’t let the american cheese fool you!) Also, he has a band. They practice in my basement, they are awesome, and you should become a fan.

Shred a 1 lb. block of white american cheese into a microwave-safe bowl. Add about 1/2 cup of milk. Microwave for 1 minute, stir, and add more milk to desired consistency, microwave in 30 second increments until you have achieved the desired smooth, dippy cheese consistency. stir in some chopped fresh jalapeno, to taste. Put out some chips (otherwise people WILL use their fingers!) and watch it be the first thing to disappear.

All of that should make for a pretty kick-ass party. Of course, you must also have Kelly’s Infamous Taco Dip… so trashy and so addictive!

    Awesome. I want all those foods. Now.

    I think we should plan another “white trash food” party.

    Thanks for posting this, Steph!
