ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?

I can’t believe how quickly this season is going.  Don’t forget to come join us and link up all your favorite tailgating goodies throughout the entire 2013-14 football season!

No matter who you are rooting for we’ll have fun.  I know not everyone enjoys football, but who can resist a good football food buffet? It’s time to start thinking about tailgating treats, appetizers, chips and dips, wings, and all the other yummy party things!

Having a game day buffet just makes it more festive!  I remember when I was a kid, My dad was a big LOS ANGELES RAMS fan. We always watched the games together and I was responsible for keeping the game food fun. I loved spending the day with my dad and it was always so much fun.
Martha over at Seaside Simplicity began Tailgating Time and it’s just plain fun not to mention a wonderful source for new recipes to try.  We will repost the linky on or around the first of each month as a reminder.

BAKED HAM & SWISS SANDWICHES

I wish I could tell you where I saw this recipe, but I can’t.  I did adapt it slightly, but it really makes the perfect football food – quick, easy and tasty. 

BAKED HAM & SWISS SANDWICHES
12 pack of KING’S Hawaiian rolls
4 slices thick ham, quartered (to fit on rolls)
4 large slices Swiss cheese, quartered (to fit on rolls)
1/3 cup butter
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder

  • Slice rolls in half and layer pan with bottom halves.*
  • Place a slice of ham and Swiss cheese on each roll.
  • Put the tops on.
  • In a small saucepan melt the butter.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce and seasonings and blend well.
  • Brush the tops of each roll.
  • Cover with foil and refrigerate over night.
  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes.
  • Serve immediately!  They are best hot.

As an added bonus they are really good as a “club” adding turkey as well to the ham.

*Original recipe called for using a 9×13 pan.  I used my lasagna pan and it worked out very well.

BEER AND CHEDDAR FONDUE

I’ve decided to join Ivonne at Cream Puffs in Venice who hosts Magazine Mondays in an effort to clean out my pile of ‘to do’ recipes from my magazines and cookbooklets.  This recipe was so good.  We’ll be making this again.

BEER AND CHEDDAR FONDUE 
from fine cooking Appetizers 2009
 

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/3 cup minced yellow onion
1 large clove garlic, minced
fresh ground pepper to taste
3 cups grated Swiss cheese
2 cups grated extra sharp white cheddar cheese
1 cup grated Gruyere
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon dry mustard (I omitted as I’m deathly allergic)
1 teaspoon caraway seeds, ground
1 12 ounce beer, preferably Budweiser (I used Dos Equis)
3 tablespoons Amontillado sherry 
Sea Salt
Dipping items – crusty bread, apples, sausages, etc…

  • Melt the butter in a fondue pot or heavy sauce pan.
  • Add onion and garlic, stirring until it carmelizes.
  • Add the caraway seeds and stir to brown them.  
  • Add the beer, increase the heat and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat and simmer to mellow the flavor, about 5 minutes.
  • In a separate bowl toss the cheeses with the cornstarch, mustard and pepper.
  • Sprinkle the cheese mixture, a handful at a time, stirring each batch until smooth and all cheese is incorporated.
  • Stir in sherry and adjust seasonings as necessary.
  • Keep warm over a low flame. 
Magazine Mondays are hosted by Ivonne at Cream Puffs in Venice

TAILGATING TIME

We have decided to make a change this year in the way Tailgating Time will work. Instead of a new linky for each week we will be using the same linky to keep all the great recipes in one place. This will provide easy access to the recipes and create one big awesome recipe index collection. There is no limit to how many you add – of course we hope you will add a new recipe each and every week! Tailgating Time will generally be posted each week on Sundays at noon.


It doesn’t matter if you are a football fan or not, great party food is always a good thing. Bring over your grilled goods, chips and dips, appetizers, chili and chowders, cocktails, or any recipes that would be great for the football party buffet!


If any of you would like to host along with us you can click –> get the InLinkz code to add the linky to your blog too. You can post it once in awhile or every week during football season, that’s up to you. The only thing we ask is that you leave a comment here to let us know you are co-hosting, and that you visit and comment on as many of the participants as you can.
We can’t wait to see what you will bring to the party. Let the games begin. Whoo-hoo!
