It’s the big game day!
And all I’ve been thinking about for the last two weeks is what to ADD to our annual Super Bowl spread (as well as what to delete) to keep variety, that good old ‘spice of life’ into the traditional mix.
Cheesy Artichoke and Garlic Bread with a blend of four Italian cheeses was my top choice to add this year. I experienced my first bite of this bread at a friend’s party back in 2000. I absolutely fell in love with this amazingly delicious cheesy, garlicy bread! Any recipe with artichokes gets me every time and this recipe is at the top of my unforgettable recipes. Thank goodness she shared her recipe with me, which I’ve tweaked (quite) a bit.
If you like artichoke dip, then you’ll flip over this cheesy bread! Chunks of yummy artichoke hearts mixed in a plethora of cheeses and garlic, then baked to a melted, bubbly concoction of golden cheesy perfection . . . inside a loaf of Italian bread baked to a nice crispiness on the outside, yet soft and moist on the inside.
This year we’re just having a small gathering in front of the tube, so I decided to eliminate the Italian Sausage and Pepper Sammies that we’ve had in previous years. We always include our hot and spicy “Some like It Hot’ Chili”, as well as our awesome Guacamole that was chosen as one of Foodista’s best recipes for Guacamole. We added some baked buffalo chicken wings, a sausage queso dip with mini peppers for dipping, and from my archives dated back to 1979, a veggie dip that has withstood the test of time (all recipes will be in upcoming posts)!
I hope you try this Cheesy Artichoke and Garlic Bread and check out the recipes for our Super Bowl spread too.
What did you add to your Super Bowl feast this year? I’d love to know for future parties. Leave a link too so I can find it on your blogs!
Excuse me while I go pig out a bit . . . hey, it’s the Super Bowl!
