Vegetarians Beware! Super Bowl Weekend Fare!

First off, how awesome is it that the Burp! Buffalo Chicken Dip won Noble Pig's Sam's Club Super Bowl recipe contest?! Huh? Judging from the slurpy-deliciousness of the other entries, we're truly honored. (Confession time: I was rooting for that yummy Pull-apart Bacon Bread myself... but who can argue with bacon??!)

If you're curious, I'd suggest checking out all the great entries over at Cathy's blog. And, if your'e feeling really daring, I'd suggest making EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM this weekend.

Why?
Well, it's the Super Bowl. And I can't think of a better reason to embrace full-on gluttony. In fact, I've got a suggestion or two of my own.

Since this is the weekend for serious finger foods, why not try a few of my favorites?
  1. Chipotle Shrimp (Serious smoky goodness for the chile-heads)
  2. Butternut Squash Soup with Beer & Cheese (You'll need a spoon for this one, but who can argue with a soup that features BEER as a main ingredient?)
  3. Zucchini Oven Fries (Alright, these border on being healthy, but you'd never know it cuz they taste SO good)
  4. Blasted Broccoli (GREAT with a variety of dipping sauces. And, as Lo would remind me, you've gotta get your veggies in there somewhere)
But, I've saved my best suggestion for last.
This is something a friend of mine turned me on to earlier in the week. And it gave me a serious craving. This is the perfect dish for those of you who've been starving yourselves for a couple of days in preparation for the Big Game. IN fact, I'd advise fasting not only BEFORE eating this lovely dish... but also probably for 3-4 days following.

Ready for it?

BACON EXPLOSION
Yeah, it's Big. And it's Bad. But, comeon people, it's... BACON!

Sure, you'll need a couple of pounds of bacon and an outdoor barbeque to get this one going. But, I'm going to suggest that the results outweigh any inconvenience (or frost bite) you might experience.

Oh -- and maybe call ahead for an ambulance. Cuz this is going to cause some serious artery blockage.

Enjoy the game!! And the food!! (Especially the food.)

  1. Way to go, guys - the dip looks fabulous! Makes you wish the Super Bowl came more than once a year so we'd have a good reason to try a lot of these great dishes :-)

  4. Congratulations on your win! It was well deserved. :) The bacon explosion is bad news for my diet but at some point I'm going to have to try it.
