The Weekend Dish: 2/5/2011

Super Bowl weekend is upon us and I hope I’ve done a good job of supplying you with tons of recipes to choose from when you make your game day menu! I am a huge sucker for dips and appetizers so I live for days like this! Especially when my hometown team is playing (GO STEELERS!) and I have a vested interest in the game. Not to mention the Pens playing the Caps earlier in the day; hopefully my heart survives Sunday! So, have you decided what you’re making for the game yet? I’d love to hear your menu! And, just as importantly, who are you rooting for??

Now as always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy! :)

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

45 Super Bowl Recipes for Super Bowl XLV – A roundup of perfect game day food from the site, including appetizers, snacks, main dishes and of course sweets!

Seven Layer Dip – A fun dip with a little bit of everything – refried beans, cheese, jalapeños, avocado, tomato, sour cream and olives. Delicious!

Online Bake Sale – I participated in an online bake sale to auction off my Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. The proceeds went to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and over $1,700 was raised!

Buffalo Chicken Dip – A party classic and certainly fitting for any game day menu.

Caramelized Onion, Mushroom & Gruyere Tartlets – A great appetizer for any occasion and puff pastry makes everything delicious, right?!

Hot Reuben Dip – Cream cheese, corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing baked up bubbly and served on mini rye bread. Amazing!

Sausage Dip – Only three ingredients and addicting – a perfect dip in my world!
