Ready to Rock? It’s Super Bowl

The biggest football game/party of the year is only hours away and you’re probably still wondering what you’re going to do to entertain that rabble you call your friends. Have no fear…the Big Dipper is here!

First things first. Relax.

Those guests are coming over to watch a football game, chat with each other about the tawdry cheerleaders, make fun of the poor schlubs who paid big bucks to sit in the cold and snow of New Jersey, drink all of your booze and eat everything – ANYTHING – you put down in front of them. The best way for you to have fun at your Super Bowl party is to get some easy-to-prepare-but-delicious food (This is where Gordo’s Cheese Dip can be invaluable), some game day decorations and a LOT of libations.

What’s on the Food Table? 

We’ve all been to parties where somebody (probably your poorly-organized friend Beverly) went to the grocery store, bought a vegetable platter and called herself ready. Don’t be that person! It’s too easy to prepare good stuff. The trick is to find finger food that is easy to dip in one of the six Gordo’s Cheese Dips.

Want an example of this? How about Buffalo Chicken Meatballs, made from 99% fat free chicken breasts. They sound challenging, but they’re not!


Buffalo Chicken Meatballs

Makes 16 meatballs

Ingredients:

1/4 small red onion, minced
3 gloves garlic, minced
1 egg white
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried dill
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound 99% fat-free ground chicken breast
4 ounces block Feta cheese, cut into 24 ½-inch cubes (will have 6 leftover cubes)
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup buffalo wing sauce

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400°F. Add red onion, garlic, egg white, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and seasonings to a large bowl then stir with a fork to combine. Add ground chicken then mix until combined – do not over mix or meatballs will be tough. Divide chicken mixture into quarters, then each quarter into 4 balls. Press a cube of Feta into the center of each ball then close mixture around cheese to seal. Place meatballs onto a buttered cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet then bake for 20 minutes.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat then add buffalo wing sauce and stir to combine. Add cooked meatballs to skillet then use a spoon to coat in sauce. Place a lid on top and turn heat to low to keep warm.

Serve with a bowl of Gordo’s Cheese Dip and you’re more than good to go!

This Year’s Super Bowl Commercials

The Super Bowl has become ground zero for the best new TV commercials. Because of the huge audience, Fox Network will be charging an average of $4 million for each of these spots. At that price, they’d better be good!

As a public service, here’s a peek at some of this year’s Super Bowl commercials. Feel free to enjoy these spots now and when there is a commercial break in the game, you won’t have to sit there and watch. You can go EAT more Gordo’s and DRINK more adult beverages because you’ve already seen them. Is this a great Internet or what??

Decorating for Super Bowl 

When hosting a Super Bowl party, it’s easy to get carried away with the decorating and associated minutiae. If you have time and are “crafty” there are an endless variety of decorations, knick knacks and paddy wacks which can enhance your party.

Here are a bunch.

And Finally, There’s the Game

When they finally tee it up on Sunday evening, probably about 6:30 pm Eastern, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will determine which is the best team in football, at least for this year. The Broncos have been favored in 18 games this season, obviously counting the playoffs. They’ve fielded the most productive offense in NFL history; it just doesn’t make sense to have them as the underdog. While the recent trends did show a spike toward Seattle that could drive the lines further, it seems unlikely to happen.

On the day before the game, the professional gamblers favored Denver by about 2 points – not exactly overwhelming odds. This COULD mean a competitive game, coming down to the last few minutes of play. However, there have been a lot of Super Bowls (47, in fact) and many of them were supposed to have been tight, but turned into blow outs. Yours truly, the Big Dipper says Denver wins by a field goal. Unfortunately, my Super Bowl predictions have not been that super of late.

Does it really matter? Nope. If you have your friends, your loved ones and plenty of Gordo’s Cheese Dip, you’re a winner in our book!

Now get out there and party! Let’s make some noise! Let’s raise a ruckus!! Bring on those Broncos and bring on those Seahawks. Let’s get this party started!

And don’t forget the Gordo’s!
