Superbowl Recipes

If you read yesterday's post then you know we went over to my parent's house to eat food, watch the Superbowl.

I decided I would give my mom the night off, and whip up some dishes that have been all over the interwebs, 3 of which came from Iowa Girl Eats.

I made Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies, Mini Corn Dog Muffins, White Pizza Dip, and Sausage Crustinis. I also made a Strawberry Champagne Margarita, but it turned out less than stellar so no need to waste the time posting it. 

First up...

Mini Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies from IGE

What You Need:
-1 pkg mini oreos
-1 pkg pre cut cough dough (24 count)

What to Do:
1. Preheat the oven according to the cookie dough package directions. Break off dough for one cookie and split in half. Flatten each half. 

2. Place a mini Oreo on top of one half and cover with the other half, sealing the edges.

3. Continue with the rest of the package, then bake according to cookie dough package directions.

Mini Corn Dog Muffins from IGE

What You Need:
-1 box Jiffy corn bread mix
-8 all beef hot dogs cut into 1 inch bites

What to Do:
1. Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray and spoon 1ish tablespoon of batter into each mini muffin cup. 
2. Place one hot dog piece into the middle of each cup. 

3. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until cornbread is golden brown. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes before serving. I served mine with a side of ketchup and regular mustard, but a homemade horseradish mustard would have been delicious!

Sausage and Cream Cheese Crostini
Wait for it...this is actually my own creation. I've been making this for a while and it's one of J's favorite. He can eat an ungodly amount of these.

What You Need:
-1/2 lb spicy sausage
-1/2 block cream cheese
-1/2 can rotel
-1 french bread baguette cut into thin slices

What to Do:
1. Brown the sausage. 
2. While the sausage is cooking, slice bread in 1-1 1/2 inch slices and bake on 400 degrees for 5 minutes.

3. Add cream cheese to the skillet and stir until melted.
4. Once cream cheese is melted, add the Rotel and heat through. 

5. Place the mixture on top of the toasted bread and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes.

White Pizza Dip
This recipe has been all over Pintrest and it did not disappoint.

What You Need:
-1 packet Lipton Savory Herb with Garlic Soup Mix
-16 oz Sour Cream
-8 oz Ricotta cheese
-1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 
-1/4 cup chopped pepperoni
Serve with toasted bread slices, Fritos, or tortilla chips.

What to Do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
1. In a bowl combine soup mix, sour cream, ricotta cheese, 3/4 cup of the mozzarella, and pepperonis.
2. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of mozzarella.
3. Bake uncovered for 30 min or until heated through.
