It’s happening in 6 days! The Super Bowl! Do you have all the snacks planned for the big day?
We’re taking a break from our normal work related stuff. Hey, even we like a good football party!
Here’s some recipes that we’ve shared with our fans in the past. (Share some in the comments if you’d like! If there’s some really good ones, we’ll add them to our post!)
Fried pickles, only baked. (Note: This is not our personal recipe! We’ve tried to find the original source, but can only find copy-cats that saw it on Pinterest and have tried it! If you have the original source, please let us know and we’ll link it up!)
- 1 jar pickle slices
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp hot sauce
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp Cajun seasoning
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
- Ranch dressing + hot sauce for dipping
- Turn oven broiler on high.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and flour. Add Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, garlic powder, Cajun seasoning, and pepper. Mix well.
- Place panko bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Dunk each pickle slice into the egg mixture, than dredge it in the panko bread crumbs.
- Place coated pickles on a rack set above a baking sheet and sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Place pan in the middle rack of the oven. Broil for about 3 minutes on each side.
- Serve with Ranch dressing and a dash of hot sauce.
This one serves 6.
(And if you’re not from the South, we know, this probably sounds disgusting. Personally, I’m from Northern Ohio, and it took me 24 years of living in Kentucky to finally try this dish. AND WOW. )
- 1 can Pillsbury Crescent seamless dough
- Gouda cheese (although we imagine you can substitute whatever cheese pleases you most!)
- Garlic Powder
Roll out the dough on wax paper; cut into 1″ squares. Sprinkle lightly with garlic powder.
Place dough squares into mini muffin tins, stretch and form into a cup. Cut gouda cheese into 1/4″ cubes and place on in each cup. Bake at 375 degrees until cheese is melty and crust is golden brown.
Of course, if you don’t like gouda (although seriously, if you have a Kroger near you, try the applewood smoke gouda. You won’t regret it.) just substitute another cheese that you do like! It’ll bake up the same!
Another alternative is if you have any panko breading left from the “fried” pickles, just roll the bits of cheese in some egg, then roll them in the breading and bake! Voila! Homemade mozzarella/cheese sticks!
