Super Bowl 2007 Suggestions
Okay guys, We are hosting the super bowl party this year and I am looking for your suggestions on dips, finger foods, grilling etc. In other words i want it all- What will you make for the big day of food and sports? :)
Easy Mariachi Drumsticks
1 1/2 cups crushed tortilla chips
1 pkg Lawry's Taco Spices
2 dozen chicken drummettes
Garnish: salsa, ranch dressing (homemade buttermilk kind)
In a large plastic bag, combine taco chips & Taco spices and shake well to mix. Dampen chicken with water and shake off excess. Shake a few drummettes at a time in the baggie until well coated. Bake on greased cookie sheet at 350 for 45 min. or until crispy. I've made before for a Superbowl pot luck.
I made homemade carmel corn and it was a huge hit... very easy to make... go the recipe from allrecipes.
This is my all-time favorite football food. Get up early and soak the chicken wings in the oil and garlic all day before breading them. Your house will smell incredible when you bake these! Note: I just buy the container of already-peeled garlic cloves for this...saves time. I eyeball what 3 heads would be...the more the better! I would also line the sheet with nonstick foil for easier clean-up.
Garlic Chicken Wings
2 lbs. chicken wings or drumettes
3 heads fresh garlic, separated into cloves and peeled
1 cup plus 1 TAB extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp hot pepper sauce
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 375. Split the wings at each joint and discard tips; rinse, then pat dry. Place the garlic, 1 cup olive oil, salt, and hot pepper sauce in a blender or food processor and puree. Pour into a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, and pepper. Grease a shallow nonstick baking pan with the remaining 1 TAB olive oil. Dip the wings, one at a time, in the garlic puree, then roll them in the bread crumb mixture, coating them thoroughly. Place in baking pan in a single layer. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes until brown and crisp.
