Super Bowl Foods

I confess that the only reason I'll be watching the Super Bowl this Sunday is because I love football.  I'm just not excited about either team this year.  There's always hope for the Bucs next year!  We're not having a watch party but I will be preparing food for the family.

If you have never tried Savory Saltine Seasoning, you are missing out.  This mix turns an ordinary saltine cracker into a gourmet party cracker.  I first tried the crackers at Save the Date in Macon.  They keep a canister of the crackers for tasting at the checkout desk.  These are so addicting y'all!

These crackers are great by themselves or try some of these recipes.  Serve them at tailgates or watch parties and they will definitely be a crowd pleaser!

The love the Original spice, but it's also available in Texas Chipotle or Garden Dill.

Recipe for Savory Saltines:

1 package Savory Saltine Seasoning
1 2/3 cups Canola Oil
4 sleeves of saltines
2 gallon zip lock bag

Combine Savory Seasoning and Canola Oil in a 2-gallon zip lock bag and mix well.  (The mixture will look similar to bar-b-que sauce).  Add the crackers and seal bag (leaving as much air as possible).  Toss crackers in the bag every 5-10 minutes for one hour to evenly coat crackers, or until Savory Seasoning is absorbed.  Allow crackers to sit in the bag overnight.  The next day, remove the crackers from the bag and they are ready to serve.  You may also transfer them to another airtight container and they should stay fresh for 2 weeks.

To make 1 sleeve of saltines, add 5 teaspoons of seasoning to 1/2 cup Canola Oil and follow the above directions.

Need a quick hostess gift?  Give the Savory Seasoning along with a box of saltines!

Of course, we're not just having saltines on Super Bowl Sunday.  I'm fixing a big pot of White Chili from my Taste of Gourmet pantry and loaf of Roasted Onion Garlic Bread.

The White Chili is fabulous!  I add 4 cans beans, chicken broth, and 2 pounds of shredded chicken breast.  The Roasted Onion Garlic bread mix is easy to prepare with one can of beer/club soda.

Y'all enjoy the game!

This reminds me, I still need to organize our Super Bowl nibbles. The game is on late in the evening here, so it can't be anything heavy.

Super Perfect!

Love your Super Bowl goodies! I tried to follow your label for previous Super Bowl ideas and nothing came up. Did you get rid of your catagories or am I just doing something wrong?

Miss Janice said...

Definitely try the saltines!

Miss Janice said...

Enjoy the game!

Merci Laura!

Not sure? Did you use "search this blog" in the right-hand column? Try searching "Gameday" or "Gameday foods."

I found it by using the search option per your suggestion. Thank you.

My mom uses that seasoning for her crackers too! I love them. They do go great with white chili! We use the saltine minis with our chili so that you don't have to break them up when you toss them in the bowl! Looks like Yall are gonna have a Sunday Funday!

Your seasonings look delish. I will have to try some one of these days. Happy game day. All festivities have been called off here in south east Michigan due to the blizzard that is rolling through. I forsee a fat week coming up since I have all this game food and no one to eat it :(
