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 swarming all over the interwebs-3 of which may have come from Iowa Girl Eats.

I made oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies, not so mini-mini corn dog muffins, spinach and sausage pinwheels, white pizza dip, and sausage crostinis. I also made a strawberry champagne margarita, but it turned out less than stellar so I decided it doesn't deserve it's presence on this blog.

First up...

Mini Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies from IGE

What you'll need:
-1 pkg mini oreos
-1 pkg pre cut cough dough (24 count)

Preheat oven according to cookie dough package directions. Break off dough for one cookie, split in half, and flatten each half. 

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

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

Mini Corn Dog Muffins from IGE

What you'll need:
-1 box Jiffy corn bread mix, or you can make it from scratch
-8 all beef hot dogs cut into 1 inch bites

Note: Since my mom didn't have a mini muffin tin (*hello, present idea). My mini muffins weren't so mini.

Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray, and spoon 1 Tablespoon of batter into each mini muffin cup. Place one hot dog bite into the middle of each cup. I barely filled mine one quarter of the way filled since they were the regular size.

Bake for 8-12 minutes (oven temperatures vary), or until cornbread is golden brown. Cool in muffin 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 may have eaten an ungodly amount of these.

What you'll need:
-1/2 lb spicy sausage
-1/2 block cream cheese
-1/2 can rotel
-1 french bread baguette 

Brown sausage. While sausage is cooking, slice bread in 1-1 1/2 in slices and bake on 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

Add cream cheese

Once cream cheese is melted, add rotel and heat thru

Place mixture on top of toasted bread, bake for an additional 10 minutes.

Spinach and Sausage Pinwheels from IGE
To be honest, these were my least favorite and I probably wouldn't make then again. That being said, if you want to try them for yourself here's what you'll need:
-10 oz frozen spinach ( I used wayyyy less. maybe 1/3 cup)
-1/2 c ricotta cheeese
-2 oz feta cheese crumbled
-1 tsp. Italian seasoning
-1/3 lb spicy sausage
-1 tube Pillsbury Crescent Roll Dough Sheets ( I couldn't find just the sheets so I just bought the rolls and pinched the seems together to make one sheet)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together spinach, ricotta cheese, feta cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a bowl. 

Sprinkle cooked sausage evenly over both halves, then tightly roll each half lengthwise, pinching the seams when it is fully rolled to seal.

Cut each half into 8 slices with a sharp, serrated knife, for a total of 16 pieces. Bake on a non-stick sprayed baking sheet for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

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

1envelope LIPTON® RECIPE SECRETS® Savory Herb with Garlic Soup Mix
1container (16 ounces) sour cream
1cup (8 ounces) ricotta cheese
1cup shredded mozzarella cheese (about 4 ounces), divided
1/4cup (1 ounce) chopped pepperoni (optional)
1loaf Italian or French bread, sliced

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In shallow 1-quart casserole, combine soup mix, sour cream, ricotta cheese, 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese and pepperoni.
2. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese.
3. Bake uncovered, 30 minutes or until heated through. Serve with bread.

I served mine with Fritos scoops and tortilla chips instead of bread per recs on Pinterest.

What recipes did you make for the Superbowl that I need to try?
