Five Favorite Appetizers for Superbowl Sunday!

Since the Superbowl is this Sunday {Go Panthers!!} I am thrilled to share five of my very favorite, tried and true appetizers. I don't know about you, but my favorite way to enjoy the Superbowl is to have a nice, big spread of appetizers. Nothing better! Yes, I will watch the game {and actually be interested} but the food is of course the very best part. 


I haven't made these in a while, but oh my goodness, these things were DEVOURED at our tailgate the very first time I made them. Just a few ingredients for these tasty bites. Mixing sausage with cream cheese and crescent rolls is pretty much perfection!



My latest appetizer favorite. Since good old Chic-fil-A isn't open on Sunday, you could either get the nuggets ahead of time, find a similar version in your grocery store, or even better- pan fry your own chicken tenderloins. I promise, you won't be disappointed with this insanely easy app!



HAM BISCUITS

Raleigh {my hometown} has a fabulous little bakery that has THE BEST ham biscuits. I mean, they practically melt in your mouth. I've made my own little version of them, and while they aren't quite the same thing, they still are pretty darn good. Pictured below is the Ladyfingers ham biscuits we had with soup this week:



This is my version:

MINI HAM BISCUITS
-1 Package Sister Schubert Yeast Rolls
-1/4 pound shaved ham (I think ours was oven baked, we couldn't find country ham shaved)
-1/2 stick butter
-3 tablespoons brown sugar

Bake rolls according to package directions.
Melt butter and mix with brown sugar.
Stuff each roll with ham and return to tin pan.
Baste top of rolls with butter and brown sugar mixture.
Bake for another 10-15 minutes until rolls begin to brown on top.


This is such a good recipe, and a fun twist on bruschetta. The combo of the sweet and spicy peppers, mixed with the gorgonzola- oh goodness it is tasty! Side note, when I make them I leave off the capers and basil, although I am sure it is great with that addition. I think the original recipe I used did not include them so that's the way I have always made them!



We love this dip and in terms of dips- it isn't all that bad for ya! My Mom usually makes a big batch of this in the summertime when we are all at the beach house. We can pull it out of the fridge and snack away on it. It definitely makes a lot, so you can feed plenty with it!



So those are five of my very favorite appetizers and I am officially ready to snack away on Sunday night. One thing I am thinking about making is this Hissy Fit Dip, because you have to have a cheesy dip for the Superbowl! I would love to hear your favorites as well. Enjoy your weekend!

I've been dying to make chicken and waffles since last time you posted about it. YUM! And ham biscuits, yes please!

Can I have all of these?? We make the sausage bites for a lot of our tailgates and the plate is always wiped clean! Those chicken and waffles I have got to try! (well actually everything…)

The beer selection at this place was great and rotates often. Everyone who works there makes you feel welcome. At Chicago venues they remember your favorite drink and you will be glad to tweet about them.
