Philly Steak Appetizer / #FootballFoods

It is time for "The Big Game" and where you have the game, you have lots of tasty food! You will want these Philly Steak Appetizers on your menu, and your guests will love you for it! They are full of flavor, and so easy to make. Plus you can make them ahead of the festivities, put them in the crock pot and you are ready for the game!


Philly Steak Appetizer
(Serves 4)
(recipe at end of page)

1 pound Steak
Garlic Powder
Black Pepper
1-2 Yellow and Red Peppers
1 small Onion
1/4-1/2 pound Provolone
1/4-1/2 pound Brie
Small bread slices



I used bottom round steak for this recipe, but top round would be a great choice also. I only needed one of the steaks shown above. Sprinkle the black pepper and garlic powder over both sides of the meat.
Chop and thinly slice a small red pepper and a small orange pepper. You could also use green if you prefer.
Thinly slice a small onion. 
Cut cheeses into small thin pieces for easy melting.
Start shaving the raw meat very thinly, into small little pieces. It should look like you are chipping away little pieces of meat from the big piece.
Start frying the peppers and onions in a large frying pan using pan spray or butter. Sprinkle with pepper.
As the peppers and onions begin to soften just a little, add the steak. Cook on medium high heat, stirring often, to keep from burning.
Turn the heat down to medium, and add cheese. Stir all together as the cheese melts, incorporating it into the meat and vegetable mix.
Once the cheese has melted, add the mix to the crock pot. It can sit there for several hours on low, stirring it often. 
Serve with little mini breads or crackers!

Apple Kielbasa Stack / #SundaySupper

I admit that I am not much for football, but I am very much for the food served at football games and parties! I am a finger food lover for pretty much any event. What is it about finger food? I think I love it because it is cute and small, and you can eat a lot of different types and not feel like you are eating too much! That is definitely the case with these Apple Kielbasa Stacks! Tons of great flavor, stacked to enjoy, and drizzled with Balsamic Glaze! 
 Apple Kielbasa Stack 
(printable recipe at end of page)

 Balsamic Vinaigrette (find recipe here)
1 tablespoons Butter
1 Granny Smith Apple
2 tablespoons dark brown Sugar
1 ounce Water (if needed)
1/2 teaspoon Roasted Cinnamon
Kielbasa
Dark Bread




Make Balsamic Vinaigrette. Set aside. Cut apple in to small pieces. Add butter to a frying pan set on medium high. Let butter melt and add apples, dark brown sugar, and roasted cinnamon. If sauce becomes too thick, add a bit of water, a little at a time.  Drop heat to low and simmer until apples become soft, but still have a little crispness. The best way to check them is to poke a couple of the larger pieces with a toothpick.
Slice kielbasa into thin slices. Cook in butter until brown like above, on both sides.
 Use a cookie cutter to cut out the pieces of bread. The cutter I used was 1 3/4" circle. You could use a 1 1/2" cutter also.
Stack a slice of kielbasa on top of each piece of bread. Top the kielbasa with a piece of sauteed apple. Use a wooden hors d'oeuvres fork or any type of appetizer fork to serve with the stack.
Drizzle each Apple Kielbasa Stack with Balsamic Vinaigrette. You can find the recipe here.

Bacon Cheese Pops

It's time for the "Big Game" and that means lots of food, drinks, and fun. Oh yeah....and some football! To help you celebrate I made these Bacon Cheese Pops! They are so good! They are kind of like your own little cheese ball, all to yourself. Plus they are cute! I used straws, that I cut in half, for my sticks. That way you can make them with team colors to show your spirit! I used an Herb and Spices Cream Cheese Spread, but if you have a favorite, use it!
These Bacon Cheese Pops are based on a recipe from my favorite grocery, Lowes Foods, with some small changes. Make these a day ahead of the game and be sure to refrigerate them!

Bacon Cheese Pops
(printable recipe at end of page)
1 tub Herbs and Spices Cream Cheese Spread
2 ounces chopped Bacon 
2 1/4 ounces chopped Pecans
Various Crackers
Sticks to place in pops

Cook and chop bacon. To get the necessary 2 ounces you will need to cook  pieces of raw bacon. You could also use bacon bits.
Chop pecans. If you buy them in the 2 1/4 oz. package, you still need to chop them smaller. They should be as small as the bacon bits.
Mix the bacon and pecans together in a bowl. Use a small scoop to form the cheese spread into balls. Roll the cheese ball into the bacon and nuts mix. You will have to help the pecans and bacon stick to the cheese. Patting the mix on helps it to stay.
I used straws for my sticks. Cut them in half for the appropriate size. Refrigerate the balls until you are ready to serve. I used this basket to make sure they did not flat. You could also place the straws in rice so they are elevated.
Serve on a platter with crackers. 
Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy the Big Game!

Sweet Party Nuts/#SuperBowlFood

Last week, I shared these Spicy Party Nuts which are the perfect addition to your Super Bowl festivities. Today I want to share another party specialty, the spicy nuts counterpart, Sweet Party Nuts! They are very easy to make, and can even be made ahead of time.
 Sweet Party Nuts 
(printable recipe at end of post)

1 pound Pecan Halves
1/2 cup Butter
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon 
1 teaspoon ground Nutmeg

Set slow cooker to high and allow it to heat for approx. 10 minutes. Place nuts in the slow cooker, and drizzle the melted butter over them. Mix so that all of the nuts are coated.
Add the sugar and spices, and stir, so all pecans are coated evenly.
Put lid on slow cooker and cook on high for 15 minutes. During those 15 minutes, stir nuts several times. Turn the slow cooker to low and remove lid. Allow nuts to cook until they are enveloped in a crisp glaze. This will take anywhere from 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Move nuts to a parchment covered baking sheet. Let cool.
Serve to guests, or enjoy yourself!
