I was going to post these recipes later this month in time for the Super Bowl, but I have had so many requests for these recipes I wanted to share them ASAP

They will be perfect for the Superbowl, getting cozy by the fire, or any upcoming event or gathering

This is the menu from Monday night’s game

Tide Pride Fondue is adapted from Olla-Podrida’s Baked Pimento Cheese Dip, and you will be tempted to eat it by the spoonful

It’s a warm version of my favorite Pimento Cheese recipe, with the addition of cream cheese for extra creaminess, and Worcestershire for a kick.  If you want more spice add a dash of hot sauce, cayenne pepper or green chilies

Fritos scoops and celery sticks ensured a mouthful of cheesy dip

The cheeseburger is made with cooked ground beef and Italian sausage, seasoned with salt, pepper, and a dash of Dale’s or steak sauce, a cube of cheese, all wrapped in a piece of biscuit dough, and wrapped in bacon and secured with a toothpick

Quarter biscuits and press dough into flat thin pieces.  Top dough with some meat around a cube of cheese.  Enclose meat and cheese into a ball or log pressing dough edges together to seal.  Wrap in a bacon piece and secure with toothpick.

Deep fry dough balls in 375 degree peanut oil.  Balls cook quickly, 2-3 minutes.  Drain immediately on paper towels.  Serve warm.

    I think I’d like to have been at your house to watch the game. All we had was some popcorn. I have to confess that I was pulling for Clemson since it is an ACC team.
