Super Bowl Deliciousness
Super Bowl Sunday is almost here and it’s all about the great food…oh, and football of course! Do you have your menu ready yet?? Here’s what some of the Sac Foodies have lined up for the big game!
Maria Chacon Kniestedt – I’ll be serving up some delicious chicken and andouille sausage jambalaya on Super Bowl Sunday because, well, all of the signs were there: Just this past weekend, my husband asked if I would make some Cajun fare, like jambalaya or red beans and rice, for dinner soon . Then, I learned the New Orleans Saints would be in the Super Bowl – not that this made an impression (clearly, I’m focused on Kings basketball not football!). Right now, I’m reading a great book that’s set in New Orleans (James Rollins’ Altar of Eden), and then, this morning, the epiphany: the perfect recipe for jambalaya in today’s Sacramento Bee. I simply can’t ignore a good theme! I’ll add a crisp green salad, some crusty pugliese and whip up some beignets for dessert. You know it’s going to be a great day when food AND books AND sports come together.
Brittany Mohr – My favorite part of the Super Bowl is almost always the commercials! But when it comes to food, you just can’t beat the dips – homemade guacamole is usually my vice.
Karlie Bettencourt – My grandma always made Wiener Crescent Roll-Ups for holidays and birthdays. So in honor of tradition, whenever I need to make an appetizer, Wiener Crescent Roll-Ups are the first thing that comes to mind. They are so easy to make (only two ingredients: cocktail wieners and crescent rolls) and are always devoured within 10 minutes. Try serving them with mustard, ketchup, or other dipping sauces for a little extra flavor. My Super Bowl just wouldn’t be the same without them!
Cecily Fuller – I’m all about the dips on Super Bowl Sunday. Salsa, seven layer bean dip, guacamole – you name it, I’m game. Guacamole is always a favorite, so I’ll definitely be whipping up some of that, but I want to try something new, too. I think this Spicy Blue Cheese Dip I found on the Food Network Web site will be the perfect addition to those spicy chicken wings I can never seem to get enough of!
