When the NFL’s top 2 teams face off on the field on Super Bowl Sunday, make sure you’re serving touchdown worthy appetizers and party fare.
Over the next few days, I will be posting crowd-pleasing menu ideas and recipes which will be perfect for your Super Bowl Party or really any game-day gathering.
Did you know one of the top New Year’s resolutions made by Americans is to spend more time with family and friends? And, yes, a Super Bowl Party is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
Plan to serve 5-6 different kinds of appetizers, with 3-4 pieces of each kind per person. Think of your menu like a meal and offer a variety of dishes with different colors, tastes, and textures. Also, choose at least some dishes you can make ahead of time or, at least, prep ahead of time, so you can spend time with your guests on game day.
Pigs in a Blanket aren’t fancy, but they are a quick and easy, classic game day treat that your guests will love.
There are only a few ingredients which include: refrigerated crescent roll dough, mustard, cocktail franks or mini hot dogs, an egg and optional poppy or sesame seeds to sprinkle on top. You can also make a tangy dipping sauce from sour cream, mayonnaise, and mustard.
To get started, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Unroll the crescent roll dough and spread each triangle lightly with mustard. Cut each triangle lengthwise into thirds, making 3 long skinny triangles from each.
Put 1 cocktail frank at the large end of each strip and roll up.
Place each rolled up frank seam side down on a foil lined, greased baking sheet.
Add a splash of water to your beaten egg and stir briskly with a fork to make an egg wash. Brush the dough on each hot dog with a small amount of the egg wash and if you wish, sprinkle with a small amount of poppy or sesame seeds.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm.
While your Pigs in the Blanket bake, add the sour cream, mayonnaise and 2 mustards to a small bowl and mix well. Serve this dipping sauce with the Pigs in a Blanket.
