Ok, I have to admit, I’m not much of a sports fan (except hockey – one of my dirty little secrets), and I’m really not overly crazy about football, but Draco is a fan and the Super Bowl is one of the few sports-related events that he asks
So, what’s a girl to do when her man wants to curl up with the remote, a beer and root for his favorite team? Cook!
Tonight, we’re supposed to go to Witchlet’s house to watch the Super Bowl, so everything has to be take-along but I
didn’t want to spend the whole day prior to the game cooking my buns off. Since it’s only going to be the 4 of us, I decided that I’d seriously down-size what I was making. Here’s what’s on the menu for tonight.
Ricotta and spinach stuff Tortellini with Alfredo Sauce, Cesar Salad and I decided instead of making my customary
dip and Football bites, I’d just do a simple batch of muffins. Next year, I intend to plan a little further ahead (with all the stress over moving soon, I completely forgot the big game was this weekend) and I’ll add my football favorites back to the menu, but this year’s game is going to be simple and easy.
I hope you all enjoy the game!
For this recipe, I use the Red Klondike potatoes. I don’t really measure much around here (the bane of the Kitchen Witch), but it’s easy enough to figure out how much you want or like of the ingredients.
Red Klondike Potatoes (I start chopping until I have as many as I feel I want)
Cheese of your choice (Gouda is one of our favorites)
Butter (enough so that the potatoes have something to cook in and not stick)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut up the potatoes into bite-sized pieces and place in a baking dish, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Place aluminum foil over the pan and put in the preheated oven. I cook mine around 15 minutes or so, but time will vary depending on the size you cut the potatoes.
- Once the potatoes are fork-tender, grate cheese over the top, sprinkle with bacon bits and put them under the broiler just long enough for the cheese to get melted well.
Once out of the oven, you could add sour cream over the top if you wanted to, and I want to try that variation myself, but when I made these the last time, I didn’t have any. I also forgot to take any pictures, so the next time I make them, I will make sure to add them!
