Spinach artichoke dip + chicken apple sausage = faster than the halftime show. Every year, I’m more interested in the food served on Super Bowl Sunday than the game. So this afternoon I tested out a couple of apps that would be perfect for the big game, or any party really:
- Spinach artichoke dip – Adapted from Everyday Food, I used more spinach than artichoke, so it produced a bright green color. Much healthier than the store bought version, it’s still big on flavor. (Note: I didn’t have scallions, so I doubled the garlic instead.)
- Homemade “chips” – Slice 1-2 tortillas into chip sized shapes and place in a pyrex dish; drizzle lightly with olive oil and fresh parmesan; mix to coat. Broil until crisp and golden brown (10 minutes or so). Place on a paper towel to cool slightly.
- Chicken apple sausage – I chose Bruce Aidell’s, but any brand is fine. Slice into 1/2-inch pieces before placing in the same pyrex dish. Broil until cooked through (10-12 minutes). Serve with forks or toothpicks.
The whole process took less than a half hour. Touchdown!
