So, there is a big event coming up.
I know this because my fiance told me that we have to hold a party for it.
I have never hosted this kind of party. This isn’t really a dinner party. It isn’t an awards show party. And there will be no pairing of wine with cheese.
It’s a big bowl party.
Wait…no… a SUPER bowl party.
There’s going to be a football game and for some reason, people are super psyched.
I will try very hard to watch some of the game and not just play Candy Crush the entire time.
The good thing about this party is that the main focus, besides football, is on food. Not intricate, complicated dishes with subtle spicing, but with the trashiest food possible. Hearty in both ingredients and flavoring, it has to be stuff that feeds a crowd with varying palates and allergies and is also delicious. So, here is what I am thinking of making:
The last time I made these was almost 2 years ago and they were so popular that they went without me even getting a chance to go back for seconds. They are handheld, they are filling,they are cheap, and they are major crowd pleasers. They aren’t overtly Indian, just slightly spicy and fragrant – the perfect twist on a deviled egg.
I mean, come on…this stuff is tailor made for a Superbowl party. It’s hot, it’s meaty, it’s cheesy, it’s INCREDIBLY unhealthy, and you are supposed to eat it with Fritos…it’s literally PERFECT. I mean, right?
Because why just serve normal bread when you can have one stuffed with cheese and bacon?
These are the perfect thing to snack on in between platefuls of meat and cheese. Just grab a a handful and munch while playing candy crush – I mean, watching the game. They are the perfect mixture of sweet and savory – tasty but not too hoity-toity gourmet. This is good stuff to have sitting around the house. I might mix it in the bowls with plain popcorn.
Gonna get maybe 4 or 5 cans of pizza dough and bang these babies out. Might top some with chicken sausage or duck prosciutto to make it kosher.
These are as close as I can get to heaven. Pork. Fig. Cheese. and Carbs.
Obviously, making some guac, too.
What are you eating on Superbowl Sunday?
