Game Day Appetizers

Well, with the big game day quickly approaching, I thought I’d pop in & leave you with a few yummy appetizers that everyone will love!  Enjoy!

This first appetizer, I stumbled upon while perusing on Pinterest.  It looked like a super cute and easy idea for a quick little meal in a jar.  Chili in a mason jar, topped with cornbread….how easy is that??  Super portable, individual servings & super cute to boot!!  Check out the how to over at the giverslog blog.

Spinach Artichoke Dip

1 (10 oz) box of frozen, chopped spinach (thawed)
1 (14oz) can of artichoke hearts, drained and roughly chopped
1 cup Shredded parmesan/romano cheese blend
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
10 oz prepared alfredo sauce
1 tsp. minced garlic
4 oz (1/2 pkg) of softened cream cheese

*Combine ingredients throughly in a bowl and spread mixture into a small baking dish.  Bake in the oven, preheated to 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until cheeses are bubbling and melted.  Serve warm with tortilla chips. YUMMO!!

BBQ Cups

3/4 lb lean ground beef
1/2 cup of BBQ sauce
1 tbsp dried minced onion
1 (12oz) pkg refrigerated biscuit dough
1/3 cup shredded chedder cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the cups of a muffin pan.

  1. In a large heavy skillet over medium heat, cook beef until evenly brown. Drain excess fat. Stir in barbeque sauce and dried onion. Simmer for a few minutes over low heat.
  2. Flatten each biscuit, and press into cups of the prepared muffin pan. Make sure the dough comes to the top of the pan. Spoon a portion of the meat mixture into each dough cup.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, and bake for 3 more minutes.

This one is always a big hit!  You can also fill the cups with pulled pork, taco meat, etc…

Yummy Taco Dip

Equal parts sour cream and cream cheese. I used 16 oz. Of each. 1 1/12 packets of Taco seasoning. You mix that all together and spread in the bottom of a 9×13 dish. Then chill overnight. The following day, top with chopped lettuce, cheddar cheese, tomatoes and olives.  Get yourself a bag of tortilla chips & you’re set….so good!!

Anyways, those are just a few of my favorite apps that are super easy and will win over the hungry crowd every time!
