Super Bowl Recipe day at the Garden

Welcome to Super Bowl Recipe day. And yes this is part of my release party (three weeks long, can you say Partay?)

If you'd like to be entering into a drawing for my latest release Classic Murder: Mr. Romance all you need to do is post your favorite Superbowl dish in the comments. I will announce the winner tomorrow.

And yes I'm playing too, here's my dish.

Cheese Head Potatoes
Russet Potatoes (Number is determined by how many people you'd like to feed) Cut into flat pieces about two inches or larger with skin. Place the potatoes on large cook sheet, (spray with cooking oil) skins down.
Chopped onions
Chopped Jalapeno's
Grated Cheddar and Monterey Jack Cheese.
Mix the onions and Jalapeno's in a bowl, then sprinkle evenly over potatoes and broil until potatoes are almost done. Then sprinkle the cheese over the top.

1 pint Sour cream
1 Tbsp. Chives
1 tsp. Dill
Mix together and serve with hot potato skins. 

Okay I can't wait to hear yours!

Hey Mary! I have a recipe for you. It's one of my "stand-bys" for those parties and get-togethers where people snack the entire time!

Southwest Chicken Salad
2 10 oz. cans of white meat chicken (or the equivalent of that in cooked chicken breast)
15 ounce jar of your favorite salsa (I use chunky medium)
8 ounces sour cream
2 small cans water chestnuts, chopped
8 oz. shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
1 pkg dry Ranch Dressing mix

Mix all of the above ingredients together. Mixture will seem runny until you add the cheese. Serve with tortilla chips, Fritos Scoops, or wrap in whole wheat tortillas and slice into pinwheels!

This is my favorite Super Bowl party recipe: Crispy Pizza Bites:
Crispy Fried Pizza Bites (serves 8)

They taste fried, but are actually baked, which keeps the kitchen smelling good, and makes life much easier if you’re feeding a crowd. They can be made a day or two in advance and heated up on Game Night.

30 wonton wrappers (I’m guesstimating 3 or 4 per person)
2 large balls of mozzarella cheese
8 – 10 tbsp marinara sauce (shop bought is fine)
30 small slices of salami
1 egg
Vegetable oil

* Pre heat the oven to 400
* Spoon a blob of marinara sauce into the center of the wonton.
* Top with a cube of cheese and a slice of salami
* Crack the egg, and give it a quick whisk. Use a pastry brush (or your fingers) to dab a layer of egg around the edges of the wonton wrapper, then fold over into a triangle (try to seal out air pockets)
*Repeat for the rest of the wontons
*Brush both sides of each wonton with vegetable oil and place on a baking tray
*Bake for about 10 - 15 minutes until the parcels are golden and crispy – keep an eye on them

If You Can Make That You Can Make This:

Switch out the salami for pineapple chunks and sliced ham
Or mushrooms and a drop of truffle oil
Or chopped black olives
Switch out the mozzarella for goat cheese
Or Cheddar
Leave out the tomato sauce altogether and go with cooked bacon and cheddar cheese
Or replace it with pesto and add chopped cherry tomatoes and mozzarella

There's an illustration of folding the wontons along with some other snack ideas here:

That looks great. I can't wait to try it. I'm doing the switch out because I love goat cheese.
