I love the Super Bowl. I could not care less about who is playing or who wins. I am intrigued by the Super Bowl ads, but I could take them or leave them. What really gets cheering is the food. Appetizers are my most favorite course. I save recipes from magazines, online and from family friends. I have an extensive app collection, and not the one on my iPhone. I have compiled a list of my faves that never make it back to my home stadium.
Sweet and Tangy Meatballs
• 2 12-oz jars Heinz Chili Sauce
• 1 jar grape jelly
• 1 package of frozen meatballs
Combine jelly and chili sauce in a crockpot and stir until smooth. Add meatballs and set temperature to low. Cook for 2 hours on low.
Spicy Cheesy Chicken Dip
• 2, 8 oz packages of cream cheese, softened
• 2, 9.75 oz cans of chicken, drained
• 2 tbsp of hot sauce, more if desired
• 3, 16 oz packages of Monterey Jack or Colby shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cream cheese, two packages of cheese, chicken and hot sauce until smooth. Transfer mixture to 9 inch casserole dish. Tope with last package of shredded cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbling. Serve with chips.
Bacon Wrapped Scallops
• 2 lbs regular sliced bacon
• 2 lbs sea scallops
• 3 tbsp butter
• 1 tbsp minced garlic
• 1/3 cup chicken broth
Cut bacon strips in half. Wrap piece of bacon around each scallop and secure with a toothpick. Broil 5 inches from heat for 3 minutes each side or until bacon is crisp. In a skillet melt butter; add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add broth and bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes. Place scallops in a large bowl and add broth mixture. Toss lightly to coat.
BBQ chicken sliders
• 2 cups shredded boneless rotisserie chicken
• 2 cups BBQ sauce

Mix chicken and BBQ sauce. Cook 2 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly heated. Spoon 3 tbsp. chicken mixture onto sweet roll and top with pickle chips.
Fig preserve and prosciutto bruschetta
• Fig preserves
• Goat cheese
• Sliced prosciutto
• Toasted sliced French bread
Spread goat cheese on toasted bread, top with fig preserves and sliced prosciutto. Serve chilled.
No matter who wins or loses, these apps are sure to be a touchdown. Enjoy!
