Superbowl, what did ya make? Winners Vs. Losers

I totally didn't make what I initially planned to. I ended up with that great pan fried onion dip mentioned in other posts, a winner, and the traditional knors leek mix, spinach, water chestnut bread bowl dip, another winner. What did you end up with?
Yea Giants!

  1. The Buffalo Chicken Dip, posted a few times, was a really big winner.

    1. The biggest hits at my house were the coconut shrimp with apricot dipping sauce and the homemade pizza. I used Tyler Florence's dough recipe for the first time and it was delicious! We made one pizza with sausage and one with basil and fresh mozzarella. Good eats and a good game!

      1. Manhattan clam chowder. Maybe thats why the Giants won. :)

          I made hummus...kind of a miss with all the other sour cream based dips on the table but the rock star of the night was my cream cheese and green onion wontons...deep fried to crispy goodness gone in a flash!

        2. I didn't have a party _ just me, my 9-year-old and a friend of hers. But I made an Alton Brown recipe from the Food Network for wings with an orange juice-hoisin sauce-soy sauce glaze. I thought they were delicious.

            nothing interesting...pepperoni bread but the different thing I did this time was had marinara sauce on the side for dipping. that was excellent!

          2. There were only my son and I watching the game...we loved GoodHealthGourmet's Black Bean Dip:

                i'm so glad you enjoyed it. apparently, so did kathleen mc elroy at the ny times...


                score one for the hounds!

                next time try serving it with my homemade chips - it's even better that way.

                  There was a little leftover and I used it on a baked potato, topped that with a little cheese and fresh cilantro--great and simple dinner!

                    love the idea val..i'll have to try it the next time i make some.

                  Gio, did you ever try this dip with the cannelloni beans? I'm in deep and feel slightly addicted to this dip now...made another batch today but added some light red kidney beans to the black beans because the can of black beans that I bought only contained 15 ounces and after draining and rinsing, looked like a sadly paltry amount (must....have.....MORE!) so I added half of a can of light red kidney beans and it came out awesome! Would love to know if other beans work well with this. By the way, a co-worker is now also addicted to this wonderful stuff.

                  1. re: Val

                    I'm just seeing this post now Val.... yes, I made the dip with the cannelloni beans and then with red kidney beans as well. It's truly addictive! I also used some that was not inhaled as an condiment to a bison meatloaf. Vedy, Vedy gooood.
