Superbowl Party Ideas

So this Sunday is the big game day lets impress the guests with a planned spread. Most guests come for the food anyways so make it easy on yourself. Start prepping everything Friday or Saturday.

Chicken wings

2 lbs of frozen or fresh wings
5 tbsp lemon pepper
1 tbsp coarse ground pepper
1 tbsp sea salt
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp ground mustard (dried)

Hot sauce and butter (optional)

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl then cover all the wings with the dry rub. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 35 minutes covered with foil.

Uncover and bake another 10 minutes.

For the sauce if using, melt 1/2 stick butter and add 1 cup of texas pete hot sauce. Add to a large mixing bowl and coat the wings.

Serve with blue cheese dressing, celery and carrots.


Now here is an easy appetizer and it's great for you:

Carrots (baby or chopped in to sticks)
Celery cut in to sticks same size as carrots
Cherry tomatoes

Now for the dip:

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
3 tbsp. prepared horseradish
2 tbsp. fresh dill, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp. coarse ground mustard
2 tsp. red pepper sauce or substitute your favorite hot sauce

In a medium-size bowl, blend cream cheese, sour cream, horseradish, dill, mustard and red pepper sauce or hot sauce until well mixed.
