The Super Bowl is this weekend, and it's time to start thinking about a menu! Whether you're having a crowd over or simply watching the game with a significant other, it's fun to make a special meal packed with game day eats. To inspire you, I've scoured through all of our recipes and come up with a winning menu. It has got two dips, a hearty sandwich, and a decadent dessert, so start clicking for the recipes.
The classic recipe combines marinated artichoke hearts with frozen spinach and cream cheese. White wine makes it a little gourmet, parmesan cheese enriches the flavor, and a healthy shake of Tabasco adds heat. To test this dip out for yourself get the recipe — it would be wonderful served at a Memorial Day barbecue! — after the jump.
However, there are 38 spinach artichoke dip recipes on Food Network, and I had no clue which one the host used. So I started to make spinach artichoke dips and hoped my tastebuds would lead me to the correct recipe.
It took me six years and 10 spinach artichokes dip recipes, but I finally found it. One bite of this chunky melted dip and I knew instantly: this is the dip I've been waiting for! Turns out it's an Emeril Lagasse recipe, and the secret ingredients are brie and bacon. It you want to kick your classic spinach artichoke dip up a notch, I highly recommend you make this variation.
To start, there's nothing quite as crowd-pleasing as artichoke-spinach dip. This cheesy variation is simple, all you have to do is mix the ingredients together and bake. Also on the appetizer spread? Pizza pockets! Store-bought pizza dough makes these hand-held snacks a cinch. Feel free to change the filling to suit your family's needs.
Finally, during halftime, we'll feast on a Mexican selection of store-bought guacamole, salsa, queso dip, and homemade quick beef tacos. These recipes are ideal for the beer-guzzling bachelor in your life, share them now.
