Superbowl Munchies



I don't plan to watch the game; nor will I watch that silly "Survivor" thing afterwards. But that
doesn't mean I don't have recipes for some good game or other gatherings munchies!

Seasoned Oyster Crackers

1/2 c. corn/vegetable oil 1 pkg. Ranch salad dressing (not the dip mix) 2 tsp. dried dill weed
2/2 tsp. garlic powder 1 large pkg. oyster crackers (unsalted)

Mix the first four ingredients and mix into a large bowl with oyster crackers. Stir until well
coated. Spread on a baking sheet and bake at 250F for about 10 minutes. Let cool, then seal in
ziplock bags to store. Set out in bowls as snacks at the party

Party Pizza's on Mini-Rye

1 lb. lean ground beef 1 lb. hot Italian sausage
3/2 lb. shredded cheddar cheese
4/4 lb. crumbled feta cheese 1 tsp. dried oregano
5/4 tsp. garlic powder 2 Tbs. dried parsley flakes 1-1/2 loaves party rye bread

Brown together the beef and sausage. Drain and return to heat; add the cheeses and herbs; stir until
cheese is melted. Set aside.

Spoon onto rye slices (about 1 Tbs. each) and place on a baking sheet. At this point you can freeze
them, separating the baking sheets with waxed paper.

When ready to cook, place under a hot broiler for 5-7 minutes, watching to be sure they don't burn.
Makes a LOT!

Jill's Hot Wings

These are broiled, not fried. And definitely not battered.

3-4 lbs. chicken wings pepper to taste 3 Tbs. butter 3-4 Tbs. Tabasco or other favorite hot sauce
6/2 tsp. spicy season-all

Separate chicken wings at the joint with a cleaver to make tips and drummies. Melt butter in a small
saucepan and add remaining ingredients. Place 'wings' on a rack on a broiler pan. Brush generously
with the butter/hot sauce mixture. Broil 15-20 minutes, brushing with butter/sauce mixture as you
see fit. Turn once. Broil until nicely crispy. Drain on brown paper. Serve with bleu cheese or Ranch
dressing and lots of beer!

Bacon Vegetable Dip

7/2 c. mayonnaise
8/2 c. sour cream
9/4 tsp. garlic powder
10/4 tsp. onion powder
11/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes pepper to taste 6 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

Mix all ingredients together. Cover and let stand (in the fridge) at least 5 hours. Stir before
serving with assorted veggies or crackers and chips.

Enjoy the game and the snacks everyone!

I got suckered into working instead. :p

On the upside, it'll be 12 hours of overtime at $30.00 per hour... ;-) Gonna be a nice paycheck.

Ah ha! But do you make your own bagel chips?!

Seriously, I have a recipe for those things. Lemme see...

6 plain bagels 5 Tbs. lowfat margarine 1 Tbs. Dijon Mustard
1/4 tsp. onion powder
2/4 tsp. garlic powder

Cut each bagel into 1/4" thin slices. Place on ungreased baking sheet. Combine remaining ingredients
and spread over the bagel slices. Bake at 300F for 20 minutes until crisped and browned. Let cool.

Oh, here's another favorite:

Tamale Meatballs

2 c. crumbled cornbread 10 oz. can enchilada sauce 1-1/2 lb. lean ground beef 8 oz. can tomato sauce
3/2 c. shredded monterey jack cheese 2 oz. chopped green chilies (optional)

Combine crumbled cornbread, half of the enchilada sauce with ground beef and mix well. Form into 1
inch meatballs. Bake in a shallow dish, uncovered, about 18-20 minutes or until meatballs are
browned. In a saucepan heat tomato sauce and remainder of enchilada sauce. Place cooked meatballs in
a chafing dish. Pour the sauce over the top; add the green chilies and top with shredded jack
cheese. Keep warm over low heat.
