It seems everyone this week is searching for Tailgating and Superbowl recipes.
The truth is, during the game you could just sit out a bowl of Fritos and Sam Adams and call it a night. Most guys won’t care. Most women would feel relieved not to have that pressure.
But let’s not do that, though.
Instead, my advice is to keep it simple.
Chips? Yes. I can’t recommend deep frying Wontons enough. Earlier this week I posted a recipe for BBQ Pork Nachos made with wontons. It’s quick, it’s different. It’s utterly delicious. The recipe on its own is fantastic, but you could certainly amp it up with some homemade guacamole. Here are three recipes for guacamole I’ve seen that look incredible…
Another REALLY easy thing to do? Mini Sandwiches. Sure, you could get a tray of them from Subway, or – you could take the Oh Yum Route. Meaning – Mini Croissants, piled high with turkey, crisp bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, a little mayo, and sliced avocado. Put a little flag through each one, sit them out, and watch your guests go to town. Expect applause.
If you are wanting to take a little more time, this is my grand prize winning avocado recipe. If it’s good enough to win a trip to the Rose Bowl, it’s good enough for Superbowl Sunday, right? Jim Beam Bourbon, Bacon, Shrimp & Avocado filled puff pastry. It’s hands down one of the best recipes I’ve created, so I hope you’ll try it!

No matter WHAT you have on the menu plan for Sunday, make sure you are safe. If you’re going out, PLEASE be sure to have a designated driver if you intend to drink. Be smart, be safe.
Also, be smart in the kitchen. You don’t want to get sick, and you certainly don’t want to make anyone else sick. Below are the Four Steps to Food Safety, put out by the Ad Council and USDA. You can find more info here.
I hope you have a GREAT weekend, full of fun, and friends, and of course, FOOD! And for those of you anti-football, there’s always the commercials to look forward to!
