Super Bowl Extravaganza

30 Jan

LADIES!!!

It’s that time of year, some of you are ecstatic you won’t have screaming and yelling in your house again every Sunday until Fall… Others, like myself will miss it, a lot. I love Football Sundays, it’s guaranteed time with my man, cooking all day, Coors Light, lucky shirts, and good old fashion American competition.

I love all things football, but for my soon to be Mr it is a religious experience. I don’t quite know what to label it, but it is a passion few have for anything in life. The fact that the San Francisco 49ers are playing takes this Sunday to a whole new level. Now we have food. I love food, but have a passion for cooking. I love finding ways to make our tailgating favorites not as fattening without compromising flavor… Not always possible to lower calories, but I love trying 🙂

This is a Girl’s guide to Football Sundays, and THE SUPER BOWL. You don’t have to like football in order to have a great time. Get a fun outfit, add some Team colors to your makeup and manicure. If you’re hosting the party at your house, try making some of the crowd pleasing recipes below… I do Step-by-Step instructions to make it very easy. Have fun decorating the place and even get some betting going to add more fun. If you don’t care about the game, there is an equal amount of time of other things to watch, Alicia Keys is singing the National Anthem, Beyoncé is the Half Time performance and the BEST commercials you’ll see all year will be debuted. If that’s not enough to get you excited… You have a free pass to start drinking early and go overboard if you’d like… If you’re still not excited, well, I’m sure we’d never be friends.

Baked & Loaded Jalapeño Poppers

24 Jan

As the Super Bowl approaches the tailgating recipes continue… There’s many ways to make them, cream cheese filled, cheddar cheese filled, breaded or wrapped in bacon. No one likes to choose between these, so lets makes some with EVERYTHING!!!

8 Large Jalapeño Poppers

  • 4 Large Jalapeno Peppers
  • 2 Pieces Turkey Bacon (Or if you like swine, go for the real stuff)
  • 4 Oz Low-Fat Cream Cheese (If you can taste the difference go full fat)
  • 1 Cup Shredded Mexican Cheese Blend
  • 1 Egg Scrambled
  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 3/4 Cup Bread Crumbs (Or Panko Crumbs)

Let’s get started… Cut the peppers length wise leaving the stem attached. Then remove all the seeds and membrane. The spiciest part of the pepper is the seeds, so once you remove those and bake them they really are very mild.

Raw Jalapenos

Then, cook your Turkey Bacon (This one from Trader Joe’s is my personal favorite)… Let it cool then finely chop it.

Turkey Bacon

Put the cream cheese (room temperature is easiest for mixing) into a bowl, add the Mexican cheese blend and mix well. Then, mix in your chopped bacon bits.

Cheese Filling

Using a spoon fill your hollowed peppers. I like to fill them so they are rounded and really stuffed 🙂

Cheese Stuffed

Then I line up three bowls for my breading… Put flour in one bowl, scramble the egg in the second and bread crumbs in the third… Like so…

Egg Flour

First, dip in flour and cover them, but lightly tap to get the excess off. I ALWAYS try to keep one hand in the egg and one hand in the breading, but this always happens…

Breading Hand

Oops! 🙂

Back to the peppers… After the breading use your Misto, to spray Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This will help get the breading to taste like they were fried without all the extra fat.

Jalapeno Breaded

I use my cooking stoneware for everything, once again, the Pampered Chef one is my favorite… Pre-heat it in your oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 25-30 Minutes… AND…

Panoramic

Most people like to dip, so add some ranch or greek yogurt with a ranch packet mixed in… If you’d like to add some extra flavor put some more of your cooked bacon bits in the dip.

With Ranch

You can easily make this vegetarian but not including the bacon. Add this to your Super Bowl menu and it is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Thank you for stopping by Mrs. Training!
