Recipe Rescue: Superbowl Snacks; Touchdown!

What to put out for snacks on Superbowl Sunday can be as easy as pushing that last yard for a touchdown or as hard as a 63 yard field goal. Let’s push for easy.

It’s no secret that I love puff pastry, its easy to work with and adds a delicious touch to just about anything.

What You’ll Need:

a football cookie cutter or a steady hand and a paring knife :) , 1 pkg of puff pastry sheets, 1 pound of hamburger, 1 small onion, 8 oz of shredded cheese, half of a pound of bacon, one egg and a Tbs of water.

Putting it all Together:

pre heat the oven to 400 degrees

brown the hamburger with the small onion (chopped) add salt and pepper, when cooked through set aside on a plate to cool. Roll out both puff pastry sheets, about two rolls each way. When the meat has cooled, transfer it to one of the puff pastry sheets, top with bacon and cheese. Now gently lay the other puff pastry sheet over the top and lightly press down the edges. Then take your football cookie cutter or your made freehand skills and cut out footballs. lightly press down the edges to hold each football together and put on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Using a basting brush, brush each football with the egg wash (one egg-one Tbsp water) -You can also do this before cutting the footballs out. Take a paring knife and make a small lengthwise slit in each football, get fancy if you’d like and follow that with three short lines across the lengthwise slit to resemble the stitching-you are really do this to let the steam escape from within so that the pastry can “breathe” and it doesn’t get soggy, but the design is nice, kind of like in a pie. The meat is cooked so you are really just looking for a brown pastry, about 15 minutes, just keep an eye on them-remove from oven and set on serving platter.

****TIP**** only hand make a couple of items, buy the rest! Less stress goes well with good company and great snacks-you don’t have to do everything.
