North Carolina BBQ Wings/#FootballFood

It is finally time for "The Big Game"! Friends will be dropping by to eat and drink all kinds of yummy theme foods and cocktails, watch  commercials that are funny and produced for this very day, wear team themed shirts, and fun hats and have a great time! 
Make these North Carolina BBQ Wings part of your menu and fun! The sauce can be made a day or two ahead of time, so on game day, all you need to do is bake the wings! Simple and delicious!



North Carolina BBQ Wings
(printable recipe at end of page)

4 ounces Applewood Bacon (cut into large chunks)
3/4 cup Beef Stock
1 1/2 cups Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup White Vinegar
1/4 cup packed Dark Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Ketchup
2 teaspoons Red Pepper Flakes
1 teaspoon Chipotle Chile Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 1/2 lbs raw Chicken Wings (thawed, if frozen)



Cut each slice of bacon into 4 chunks and place in a medium sauce pan.

Add the beef stock, both vinegar's, sugar, ketchup, red pepper flakes, chipotle chile pepper and salt. Bring the mix to a boil, then reduce to medium low heat. Simmer approx 15 minutes until the bacon renders its fat. Remove from heat and set aside for approx. 20 minutes to allow flavors to develop. Remove bacon from sauce and throw bacon away.
While you are waiting for the sauce to finish up, place the wings on a baking sheet. 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Use a brush to spread sauce on each of the wings. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Remove tray of wings from oven and spread another layer of sauce on wings. Return to oven and bake for another 20-25 minutes. Check the wings in a meaty part of the chicken, to make sure they are fully cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees. Also, be aware that the size of your wings may be smaller or larger than the ones I used here, so adjust your time accordingly. 
Enjoy your wings with a side of homemade chips, and a side of BBQ sauce for dipping!

Cheese Steak Egg Rolls / #NewYearsAppetizers

I have to admit something to you~I am an appetizer junkie! They are so very hard to resist! Don't you think? I love going to events where appetizers are served! It's fun to try all the delicious little bites, and one of my favorites are these Cheese Steak Appetizers! They can be made ahead of time, and fried right before the party starts, which helps to ease that last minute scramble to get all the food ready. They are perfect for game day, birthday parties, cookouts, and almost any event you can think of, including New Years Eve! 

Cheese Steak Egg Rolls
Makes 10-12
(printable recipe at end of page)

1/2 pound Center Cut Top Sirloin
1/2 cup sliced Sweet Onion
sprinkle of Pepper
Provolone Cheese
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese 
Egg Roll Wrappers
Oil for frying
8 ounce Cream Cream, softened
4 ounce Sour Cream
1 tablespoon Buffalo Sauce


Slice the meat very thinly. If you don't want to use a slicer, just slice thinly with a knife. 
This is how it should look.
Thinly slice the onion and peppers.
 Melt butter in pan. Use medium high heat to cook the meat. Add the pepper. Once the meat starts to cook, add the onion.
Add peppers and cook until tender.
Continue to cook until the meat is cooked and all the vegetables are tender.
Sop up the extra juices in the pan by using a paper towel to remove the grease.
Add both cheeses to pan, making sure the grease is pretty much gone. Mix in as it melts.
Melt the cheese by placing small pan upside down over meat and cheese.
1. Place the egg roll mix onto the egg roll wrapper. Set the wrapper so that a pointy edge is at the top. Brush cold water around the edges of each wrap to help them stick.
2. Fold one side and then the other into the center of the eggroll wrap.
3, Pull the bottom up and tuck over the food.
4. Continue to roll the wrap until done.
At this point the egg rolls can be covered with plastic and refrigerated overnight until you want to fry. Fry in a small fryer or in a pan of oil heated to 350 degrees. Remove from fryer and drain on a paper towel.
Make dipping sauce by whipping together the cream cheese, sour cream and buffalo sauce until mix is smooth.
You are going to love this sauce!
Serve with chips! Happy New Year!




I joined a group of bloggers to celebrate New Years Eve! Check out their appetizer recipes below!
