Anyone who watches the Super Bowl.  Which is just about everybody.  Is going to have food that represents football.  Good stuff like pizza; chicken wings; potato skins; chips and dip; sodas.  The foods that can be unhealthy but you know everyone is going to eat this type of food during the big game.  Well I decided to make some of these items but homemade.  Sure it does take a little time and effort but the taste is worth it.

Chicken Wings

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and lightly grease with cooking spray. Place the flour, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and salt into a resealable plastic bag, and shake to mix. Add the chicken wings, seal, and toss until well coated with the flour mixture.

2. Whisk together the melted butter and hot sauce in a small bowl.

3. Dip the wings into the butter mixture, and place back on the baking sheet.

4. Bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink in the center, and crispy on the outside, about 45 minutes. Turn the wings over halfway during cooking so they cook evenly.

5. Enjoy!  And yes they were good and had a kick too them.

Potato Skins

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Scrub the potatoes clean then microwave the potatoes; rub all over with olive oil and cook on the high setting for about 5 minutes per potato.

2. Remove the potatoes from the microwave and let cool enough to handle. Cut in half horizontally. Use a spoon to carefully scoop out the insides, reserving the scooped potatoes for another use, leaving about 1/4 of an inch of potato on the skin.

3. Rub with olive oil and place skins on wrapped baking sheet.  Cook for 10 minutes on each side.  Then put cheese and precooked bacon inside skins.  Put back in oven until cheese has melted.  Then enjoy!

Quesadilla

  • 4 flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup Mexican cheese

1. Place one tortilla on skillet.  Put 1/4 cup of cheese on top then top with other tortilla.

2. Flip and toast tortilla on both sides.  Then enjoy!

I enjoyed these Super Bowl snacks with some diet root beer.  So on Monday it will be back to walking.  And job hunting.
