    What are your favorite Super Bowl snacks? I like chicken wings, chili, chips and dip.

    Just made one of our favorite football/superbowl snacks, Buffalo Chicken Dip :D

    So good.

    Shredded chicken
    Cream cheese
    Ranch Dressing
    Cheddar cheese
    Frank’s Hotsauce

    Mix, bake, eat with chips, pitas, tortillas or straight up :cool:

    Also made a huge pitcher of a drink the wife found, Hippie Juice:

    Watermelon vodka
    Triple sec
    Malibu rum (used the new stevia product!)
    Pink lemonade

    I tend to put salad in my super-bowl and popcorn in the smaller ones.

    That sounds extremely appetising. How long do you bake it for?

    Please do bear in mind that 1) anything that sounds delicious on this thread - and what a wonderful idea for a thread!, and 2) anything that contains Ranch Sauce (an excellent American import I find I am rather partial to), will have me at the ready, subtly salivating, pen in hand (or keyboard near to hand), prepared to take detailed notes……...

    And what exactly, pray tell, are 'pigs in the blanket' to those of us from Across The Pond?

    Basically it's hot dogs wrapped in some sort of bread.

    Wow. Thank you very much for enlightening me.

    Are they bought as they are, pre-packaged and prepared, or do you make them yourself? And, are there different versions, or brands, with one known to be better than the others?

    Above all, are they especially delicious, the sort of thing that gives rise to finger fights over the bowl?

    About 10-15 minutes at 350 or so. It’ll get a little crust, and start bubbling through the top.

    Specifics:

    8oz cream cheese
    1/2 cup ranch
    1/2 cup of Frank’s (any cayenne based hot sauce)
    2 cups of shredded chicken
    1/2 cup (shredded) sharp cheddar

    We go a _little_ “lite”: 2% cheddar, lite Marie’s ranch (best ranch on the market), 1/3 fat free cream cheese. While you can use +good+ canned chicken, but we buy a fresh rotissarie chicken, shred/chop it.

    After I posted that, a friend/neighbor brought over some Oysters Rockefeller with fresh oysters he just bagged this morning - fantastic!

    There is also Klobasniky which is like a longer pigs in a blanket with different dough and cheese. We have those on the weekends with our donuts. :D

    I like tortilla chips and dip, but this year my dad replaced them with potato chips which is not as fun. :mad:

    We had fajitas too.

    Thanks for the detailed instructions & recipe; I'll certainly keep it in mind, as it sounds absolutely delicious.
    Ah, a variation on that theme; fascinating. Sounds extremely interesting; what do you serve them with?

    Chickpeas, spiced and baked for an hour or so. They make delightfully spicy snacks, better than popcorn.

    We usually just have them with donuts. I usually just have one of them, then one or two donuts, and then my coffee/milk/or juice. I cannot eat more than two of them at a time, to me it's like eating sausage, or bacon (I know people will disagree!).

    I always used canned and never add the salt and I go very easy on the garlic. Feel free to experiment with oven temp and time, depending on desired crispness. Some of them will pop open.

    In Texas, these are available at nearly any donut shop.

    I think it's fun and easy to make them yourself - you can use just about any kind of sausage and any kind of bread dough - yeast rolls, pretzel dough, etc. My favorite is to get the small-ish smoked sausage links and roll them in croissant dough. They come out looking like this:

    Well, I'm a long way from Texas, but they do look very tempting. Thanks for posting this.

    Some mouth watering snacks have been offered here.

    As I mentioned a few posts ago, I am rather partial to Ranch Dressing - an excellent export (from you) and import (to us) from Across the Pond.

    Indeed, this was a dressing I only encountered when a dude from the US travelled back to be with his wife who was from my mom's home town, whereupon he opened a specialist delicatessen section in his father-in-law's huge store, and subsequently, opened an upmarket American gourmet fast-food outlet (an excellent one) in my mother's home town twenty years ago; until then, not only had I never tasted Ranch dressing, I had never even known it existed.

    Anyway, the point of this post is to humbly beseech my American cousins to offer more recipes/ideas/thoughts on variations on the theme of ranch dressing. They will be most grateful received.
