Superbowl Game Day Recipe Exchange

My friend Noel from Noel's Kitchen Tips asked me if I wanted to participate in her Superbowl Game Day Recipe exchange and I of course said yes! I mean really...who can refuse football and great tasting food? Not me! This year I am super stoked because my team the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing for the Superbowl title. Go Steelers! (rah rah rah)

I thought today I would share some of our favorite game day recipes that we like to make.

First up...Spicy Hot Wings! No superbowl party is complete without some great tasting chicken wings!

Spicy Hot Wings Recipe
24 chicken wings
1/4 cup hot pepper sauce
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 tbsp. white vinegar
2 pkgs. Hidden Valley Ranch Mix
1/2 teaspoon paprika

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Dip chicken wings in mixture of melted butter, pepper sauce and vinegar. Place in a baking pan. Sprinkle with 1 package of dry dressing mix. Bake for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Turn wings and add the second package of dressing mix. Bake for an additional 20 minutes or until done. Remove from oven and sprinkle paprika on top while the wings are still hot.

Next up...my favorite recipe for crock pot country style spare ribs!

Crock Pot Country Style Pork Spare Ribs Recipe
2 1/2 to 3 lbs. pork spareribs
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1 (1 lb) can sauerkraut, drained
1 apple, cored & diced
1 tbsp. brown sugar

Cut spareribs into serving-size pieces. Sprinkle with salt & pepper. Place on rack in baking pan. Brown in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, turn and brown on other side for 15 more minutes. Pour off drippings. Spoon sauerkraut into slow cooker pot. Top with apple, sprinkle sugar over the apple and put the ribs on top. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender and done. Makes 4 servings.

Next up...my aunties recipe for baked beans! My hubby loves them with his chicken wings!

Auntie D's Homemade Baked Beans Recipe
4 (28 oz.) cans Baked Beans
1 1/2 lb. bacon
2 medium onions.
1 1/2 to 2 lbs. brown sugar (to taste)
1/2 to 3/4 c. ketchup (to taste)
2 heaping Tbsp. sweet relish

Cut bacon into small pieces. (I use kitchen shears to do this). Place in skillet on stove and fry. Dice up onions and add to bacon while it is frying. When bacon pieces are crispy, turn stove down to warm and add the brown sugar, ketchup and sweet relish. Continue to heat until brown sugar dissolves. (mixture should taste sweet). Remove from heat and add baked beans and mix. Pour mixture into a baking dish and bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or place into a crockpot for 4 hours on low.

Besides the 3 recipes above, we also like to make a variety of appetizers such as my hubby's seafood layer dip for our Tostitos, my spinach dip to go with our veggie sticks and I always make a big cherry cheesecake for dessert. All of these recipes can be found right here on my blog.
