Favorite Ingredient Friday

In anticipation of the upcoming Super Bowl, this Friday and next Friday's recipes will be appetizers, main dishes, desserts, whatever you serve at a Super Bowl party.

Super Bowl? What Super Bowl? There is no upcoming Super Bowl. I'm, uh, still in denial that the Patriots cough cough lost cough cough to the Colts last weekend. So yeah, there's no Super Bowl for me!

I do have a couple recipes to share, and don't forget about the Baked Triple Veggie Dip I posted previously.

Hot Broccoli Cheese Dip
1. 1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2. 1 C sour cream
3. 1 envelope Italian Salad Dressing Mix
4. 1 pkg (10 oz) frozen, chopped broccoli; thawed, well drained
5. 1 pkg (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
6. Wheat Thins crackers

Mix cream cheese, sour cream and salad dressing mix with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Stori in broccoli and 1.5 C of cheddar cheese. Spoon into 9 in pie plate or ovenproof crock.

Bake at 350 for 20 min.

Sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese. Bake an additional 5 min or until cheddar cheese is melted.

Baked Cheese Wedges

1. 1 pkg (10 oz) extra sharp cheddar cheese
2. 1/2 C seasoned dry bread crumbs
3. 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
4. 1 egg, beaten
5. Crackers

Cut cheese into 1/4-in thick slices (or buy the pre-sliced cracker-cut cheese!); cut slices diagonally in half.

Mix bread crumbs and pepper. Dip cheese into egg; coat with crumb mixture. Place on crackers; place crackers on cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 for 5-7 min or until cheese is melted.

Tip: For more cheesy flavor, sprinkle the crumb-coated cheese with grated Parmesan cheese before baking.

I like those...something to try. The Super Bowl is about 30 or so minutes from me.

these sound great! we're having a Super Bowl party so i've been looking for some good recipes...i think i'll give these a try!

Kathleen Marie said...

Two SUPER recipes! Wow! Both new to me as well, which is awesome!

I am feeling much better today! Thanks for the prayers!

K.T. said...

I have to try the dip-I am a little leary still of the cream cheese(dont know why)-but I will definitely give this one a try!

Doris said...

The broccoli cheese dip sounds like it will end up being a Christmas party recipe around here too. Thanks for sharing!

Sorry, Michelle, there is indeed still a Super Bowl game to be played. :)

Thanks for sharing 2 great recipes! I'm wondering if your Hot Broccoli Cheese Dip will prove to be a sneaky way that I can get Snuggle Bug to eat a veggie? :) I'll let you know!

I'm in major Patriots country up here in Vermont...all my friends from around here are in mourning.
These recipes do sound delicious! Thanks for sharing. Have a nice Friday!

Ok, I'm a cheese freak (might explain why I have too much junk in the trunk:D) so all these recipes are a must try with me. I might have to try the baked cheese wedges tonight.

Tammy said...

Those sound like some yummy recipes to try!
I'm big on football, but my friend is, and we're invited to their Superbowl party every year, so these would be good choices to bring! :)

Pamela said...

The Patriots sure gave it a gallant effort! It is so much fun when it is your favorite team!

Love the sounds of both recipes but especially the Broccoli Cheese Dip. It is definitely speaking to me! :)

Linda said...

They sound so good. All of these recipes are making my mouth water. I suppose this means we should have a Super Bowl party :)
Go Colts!!!
Have a blessed weekend.

Lori4squaremom said...

Oh Michelle, those sounds OH SO GOOD! I was drooling at the hot broccoli dip, then when I got to the cheese stick thingie mcbobbers (yes, it's a technical term :)) I was getting the computer ready to print! YUMMMOOOOO Thank you!

Julie Julie Bo Boolie said...

k now I'm hungry again and I just had supper!

Larae said...

I'm still in denial over the Patriots too, the only reason I'm "celebrating" the Super Bowl this year is for the great food at the parties, haha ;) Both of these sound amazing, I can't wait to try them out. Thanks for sharing & have a great weekend! =)

Barb said...

OK, maybe my comment will post on the third try.

I sure wish I'd had your slow cooker recipe last Sunday. I roasted a six pound pork roast. And it was nothing special. Your recipe sounds wonderful.

As do these appetizers, especially the first one!

PEA said...

Those two recipes are excellent for get togethers...thanks so much for sharing:-) Hugs xox

Kentucky Gal said...

Magi said...

Both recipes sound good, but that broccoli one is calling to me. Thanks!

FamilySnows said...

Cheryl Wray said...
