I love Super Bowl time. Not just because of the creative commercials or the suspense of the game, but because of the awesome food at the parties! Here are some great ones I found on the Boar’s Head website.
1/2 Cup Sour Cream
8 Slices Boar’s Head Bacon
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 cup Green Onion, sliced
3 Medium Baking Potatoes
1/2 lb Boar’s Head Monterey Jack Cheese with Jalapeño, Shredded
Cook bacon until crispy.
Scrub Potatoes thoroughly and bake at 400° F for an hour
Allow potatoes to cool to touch. Then cut lengthwise. Scoop out the inside leaving a 1/4 inch shell. (You can use the inside for another recipe or discard)
Sprinkle the potato with salt and pepper.
Add Bacon crumbles and green onions and top off with cheese.
Place potato skins on a baking sheet and place under broiler until cheese melts.
You can top with sour cream or chives.
Sweet Slice Ham & Cheddar Crescent Rolls
8 Slices Fuji or Gala, apple, sliced in wedges
1 package Crescent rolls, refrigerated
8 tbsp Vermont Cheddar Cheese (Yellow & White), shredded
4 tsp Brown Sugar & Spice Ham Glaze Cooking Sauce
8 Slices Sweet Slice® Boneless Smoked Ham
Preheat oven to 375°F
Roll dough out onto a clean, flat work surface and separate into eight triangles.
At the wide end of the triangle, neatly layer one slice of ham, one tablespoon of cheese and one apple slice. Top with a 1/2 teaspoon of glaze.
Starting at the wide end of the triangle, roll up each crescent roll tucking the sides under.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm.
3 Pepper Colby Jack Cheese Dip
1 cup Mayonnaise
4 oz Cream cheese, softened
8 Scallions, chopped finely
8 slices Boar’s Head Fully Cooked Bacon, prepared crispy to package directions
1 cup 3 Pepper Colby Jack™ Cheese, shredded
1 cup Chipotle Gouda Cheese, shredded
Pre-heat oven to 350° F.
Finely dice the cooked bacon.
In a large bowl, mix together the Colby Jack, Gouda, mayonnaise, cream cheese and scallions (~½ cup).
Place in an oven-safe baking dish and cook for 15-20 minutes, until warmed through and cheese is melted. Stir before serving and garnish with crispy chopped bacon.
Elegant Cocktail Franks
1 jar Black currant jelly
1 lb Boar’s Head Cocktail Beef Frankfurters
1 jar Delicatessen Style Mustard
In a small saucepan combine equal portions of mustard and black currant jelly.
Heat slowly over low heat until jelly melts and the sauce becomes smooth and well blended.
Place cocktail frankfurters in the sauce to heat, approximately 5 minutes.
To serve, place mixture in a fondue pot or mini crockpot and let your guests help themselves.
