I am rooting for the Falcons. I typically root for the underdog in these instances. We will be watching the game at home. One eye on the TV and the other eye on the 2.5 year old.
I am probably going to make some buffalo chicken dip and I am going to attempt to make bacon cheeseburger bombs. Here are my recipes for both. Cheers!
Buffalo Chicken Dip
2 (10 ounce) cans chicken or a deli rotisserie chicken works well too
2 (8 ounce) packages of cream cheese
3⁄4 cup hot sauce
1 cup ranch dressing
2 cups mild cheddar cheese
Mix chicken, cream cheese, hot sauce, cheese, and ranch together. Add a handful of cheddar cheese for the top. Cook on high for about an hour then keep heated on low. You can serve on baguettes or corn chips.
Bacon Cheeseburger Bombs
1 can Refrigerated Biscuits (10 biscuits)
1 pound lean ground beef
½ onion, chopped
3 slices of bacon, chopped
⅓ cup cream cheese
1 tablespoon ketchup
2 tablespoons BBQ sauce
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
5 oz cheddar cheese, chopped into 10 squares
1 egg white
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large pan, brown ground beef, bacon and onion until cooked. Drain any grease. Add cream cheese, ketchup, barbecue sauce, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Stir over low heat until cream cheese is melted. Allow to cool. Roll each biscuit out very thin. Place 2 tablespoons beef mixture on each biscuit and add 1 square of cheese. Wrap the biscuit around the beef/cheese and tightly seal the edges. Place biscuits on a parchment lined pan seam side down. Brush with egg white. Put them in the oven and turn down the heat to 350 degrees. Bake 13-16 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm.
