For any easy Super Bowl party, team up your appliances and tackle three dishes at once. Why work harder than you need to on the biggest sports day of the year? You can make three great party dishes all at once and be back on the couch before you can say touchdown. Follow these great recipes for simple and tasty game day eats.
ASIAN SESAME CHICKEN WINGS – (For the Oven and Stovetop)
Chicken – Two dozen chicken wings, salt and pepper, olive oil, two tablespoons of sesame seeds (toast in skillet before using) and chopped fresh cilantro.
Sauce – (make this the day before and store in the fridge). One juiced orange, ¼ cup hoison sauce, ¼ cup ketchup, ¼ cup brown sugar, three tablespoon rice wine vinegar, three cloves of garlic and once cup of soy sauce. Combine the sauce ingredients in large saucepan. Simmer until thickened. Store the sauce until the wings are ready.
Put all coated wings (salt and pepper to your liking) in a 400 degree oven on a baking sheet. Bake them for 25-30 minutes or until cooked all the way through. If sauce was chilled, reheat and mix wings and sauce in a large bowl until thoroughly coated. Sprinkle sesame seeds over the top and garnish with cilantro.
CLASSIC CHEESE DIP – (For the Microwave)
One pound of your favorite cheese spread and one can diced green chilies and tomatoes (don’t drain the liquid). Combine in a microwave safe dish and heat until all is melted together. Add jalapenos to give it a little more attitude. Grab a bag of your favorite tortilla chips and dig in.
ULTIMATE ICE CREAM BALLS – (For the Freezer)
To save time, you can make these days before the big game. Scoop and freeze ice cream until it is hard. Dip into lukewarm melted chocolate and freeze until semi-hard. Roll the chocolate covered ice cream in shredded coconut, candy pieces, nuts or any other topping and freeze again. You could cut them up and cover in fresh fruit toppings or just serve them like they are. Place a stick in each one for easy eating or put in a bowl with a spoon.
