Are you still looking for something special to make for the Super Bowl game? I have a make-ahead recipe that is a family favorite. Whenever I make these Pizza Rounds, they get eaten up in a hurry. I got this recipe from my sister years ago. You can make these a day ahead of time or early in the day of serving. Or you can make them and freeze until you need them.
■ 1 lb. spicy sausage
■ 1 lb hamburger
■ 1/2 tsp garlic salt
■ 1 1/2 tsp oregano
■ 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
■ 1 lb. Velveeta, cubed
■ party rye bread
In a large skillet, brown the sausage and hamburger until cooked through. Drain. Add the garlic salt, oregano and Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Add Velveeta and heat through on low heat until the cheese is melted, stirring frequently.
Spread the party rye bread out on a large baking sheet pan. (I use a jelly roll pan). Spread the meat mixture evenly on the bread. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 425 degrees, until hot and lightly browned. (if frozen, add several more minutes to cooking time.)
If you are a fan of chips and salsa like I am, you will like this next one. I first had this Black Bean Salsa when a friend brought it to my house for a Super Bowl game, and I could not stop eating it! It was so addictive!
BLACK BEAN SALSA
■ 15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
■ 1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
■ 1/2 cup chopped red pepper
■ 3/4 cup corn, cooked
■ 1 cup thick and chunky salsa
■ 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
■ 1 tsp garlic, minced
■ 1/4 tsp cumin
■ juice of 1 lime
■ salt and pepper to taste
Mix all in a large bowl. Taste it and add more salt and/or pepper to suit your taste. Refrigerate for several hours before serving.
