The purpose of What’s For Dinner? is to provide you a recipe with items on sale this week, with no more than 10 ingredients (not including pantry items), and coming in at under $10 per meal.
This isn’t about dinner.
This is about all your favorite “snacky” foods coming together for one night. A night filled with friends, sports, amazing commercials, and hopefully no wardrobe malfunctions.
It’s the Super Bowl, baby.
Here are two of my favorite appetizer recipes that are easy, cheap and oh-so-good.
1/4 margarine or butter
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups of Stove Top Stuffing Mix
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup italian or mild sausage
1/2 lb sliced bacon
1. Place stuffing mix in large bowl.
2. In a small saucepan, melt margarine/butter in water. When melted, add to stuffing mix.
3. Add egg and sausage to stuffing mix. Stir and chill for one hour.
4. Shape stuffing mix into small oblongs, about the size of a pecan.
5. Cut bacon into thirds.
6. Wrap stuffing oblongs with bacon and secure with a toothpick.
7. Place on a rack with a shallow pan underneath. (I’ve used a cooling rack before.)
8. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes. Turn once halfway through.
9. Drain on paper towel and serve hot.
Poor Man’s Brie
1 container of crescent rolls
1 block of cream cheese
2 tablespoons dried dill weed
1. Unwrap cream cheese and sprinkle dill on both sides. Set aside.
2. Take crescent roll out of container as a whole and lay flat. Crimp all holes together to make one “uniform” dough.
3. Place cream cheese in the center and wrap crescent roll dough around cream cheese.
4. Crimp all ends together at the center and gently turn over so seam side is down.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until light golden brown.
6. Serve hot with crackers, fruit or a spoon. Yum.
