February 3, 2018

Whether you are cheering for the Philadelphia Eagles or the New England Patriots you can earn your own super bowl ring and enter the football food hall of fame by simply serving up the most delicious game changing, great to the last touchdown delicious treats. Enjoy a few of my winning favorite recipes for Super Bowl Sunday! 

 


{Cinnamon Sausage Rolls} 

1 - can of Pillsburry cinnamon rolls
1 - 14 ounce pack of your favorite sausage and being a Mississippi girl of course I use the one of the number one sausages in the state Cajun Country Pleasin' 
•Cut your sausage length wise so that all the ends are disconnected
•Unroll your cinnamon rolls  and have the dough at room temperature

• Cut into triangles and starting at the base of your sausage wrap the cinnamon roll dough counter clockwise top to bottom
•Place on a lightly oiled cookie sheet
• Place in a preheated oven at 375° and bake for 17 to 23 minutes until your cinnamon roll dough is a nice golden brown
• Meanwhile in a separate bowl add the premixed cream cheese glaze and a dash of hot sauce. Whip together really well and drizzle over your sausage rolls immediately after you remove them from the oven and serve ( or simply add the cream cheese glaze as is either way you win)

 

 

{Honey's "Touch Down" Sauce}

Honey's "Touch Down" Sauce pairs well with most meats. This yummy concoction is sure to heat things up the perfect half time teaser.


• In a medium-sized boiler turn on medium heat and 1 cup of packed dark brown sugar. (Looking for sugar substitute try replacing the brown sugar with a Mississippi brand of honey like Pennington Farms Honey)
• 1/2 cup water 
• 1/2 cup of creamy peanut butter
• 1 -1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil
• 1 bottle of your favorite hot sauce ( try Doe's it's made right here at home or go next-door to our cousin Louisiana hot sauce the hotter the better) 

• Bring your sugar and water mixture to a boil.

• Reduce the heat, stir, add your coconut oil and peanut butter.

• Stir until the peanut butter is nice and creamy. Allow the mixture to lightly thicken. Now add your hot sauce, bring to light boil and turn off the heat.

• You're ready to toss in your favorite chicken, baked or fried ribs ,steaks,  polish sausage or hotdogs. The  plays are endless it's even a perfect dip for your  french fries!

 

{Honey's Super Bowl of Beans and Rice}

• 1/2 pound of ground sausage
• 1/2 pound of lean ground beef
• 1/2 pound of link sausage thinly slice
• 2 cans of pork and beans with or without pork ( this recipe also works really well with canned red beans or one of my favorite black beans)
• 1 -10 ounce can of RO-TEL Diced tomatoes and green chilies
• 1/4 cup brown sugar 
• 1/2 cup of ketchup or your favorite barbecue sauce
• 1 cup water 
• 1/4cup heavy cream
• Cook in an extra large cast iron skillet or a big pot. Once your meat is browned, drain off all excess oil, place meats back into your skillet.

• Now add in your beans, RO-TEL, ketchup, brown sugar and using a large spoon give it a nice stir. 

• Now add in your water, heavy cream and reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 18 to 20 minutes.
• 1 pot of cooked rice
• 1- 8 ounce bag of your favorite cheese try mild white cheddar it makes the perfect topping for this dish
Place nice helping of rice in a bowl, top with your meat and bean mixture and finish with your favorite cheese. You are now in the end zone! ENJOY
