What Will You Be Cooking Up This Super Bowl Sunday?

Help Eagan Patch put together a list of lip-smacking snacks that readers can whip up for the big game.

Because I'm not a big professional football fan, the Super Bowl game is less important to me than the commercials—and the snacks!

Some of my fellow Patch editors and I are working to compile a collection of your favorite party-food recipes and create a Super Bowl cookbook of sorts for our readers to use. Have a fiery homemade buffalo wings recipe? Can you make a jello mold in the shape of a football? Does your salsa disappear off the table in the blink of an eye? Then we want you to send us your recipe!

Feel free to post your gameday recipes in the comments section below so all our readers can try them out. If you've taken a picture of your dish that you also would like to post, we'd love to see them. And a few brownie points if you've got a mouth-watering recipe that is healthy, too, but we certainly won't discriminate.

To get you started, Here's a contribution from Apple Valley Patch Editor Allison Wickler:

Pepperoni Dip

  • 1 10-3/4 oz. can cream of celery soup
  • 1 6-oz. package of pepperoni, chopped (a little more is definitely OK)
  • 1 8-oz. package of cream cheese, softened and cubed
  • Crackers (I like Triscuits for this, personally)

Combine the first three ingredients in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for about two hours, then set the cooker on the "warm" setting and people can munch on crackers and dip throughout the party. Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Thanks for all the recipes, Deb! I'm a fan of anything spicy, and to me the BBQ fries look particularly tasty! Are you planning using any of these ideas this Sunday?

The first two are pretty much standard get-together fare. The last one everybody likes but I think it is for the name 8)
