Seahawks Party Food – Seahawks Rice Krispies Treats

Seahawks Rice Krispies Treats

This recipe for Seahawks Rice Krispies Treats can be modified for any team you might be rooting for – but I think the blue and green is best. :)

INGREDIENTS

1/2 Cup plus 1 teaspoon butter

100 Jet-Puffed Marshamallows (big) or
10 Cups of Jet-Puffed Miniature Marshmallows (divided into 2 Cup increments)

Blue and green food coloring

15 Cups of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal (divided into 3 Cup increments)

INSTRUCTIONS

The original recipe calls for 5 layers, which I’m sure would look much cooler, but I simplified and did three layers. Because the food coloring covers the whole pan, I washed the pan before layers. I hate dishes, so that’s why you see three layers and not five. :) You do it how you like.

Seahawks Party Food – Golden Tate-r Casserole recipe

Golden Tate-r Casserole

This recipe is incredibly easy to make and it’s basically cheesy potato casserole, but I substituted tater tots for the hash browns. In honor of Golden Tate (Seahawks #81), I’m calling it Golden Tate-r Casserole or if you’re feeling a little feisty it can be called Golden Tate-r Kick-asserole 

INGREDIENTS

2 pounds Tater Tots (frozen)

2 cans condensed Cream of Potato soup (undiluted).
I used Cream of Chicken, because it’s what I had on hand. I think any cream soup will work. Low sodium would be best, since you have so much cheese in the recipe

2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese
If you can, I recommend using Tillamook cheddar cheese to represent the Northwest! 

1 cup sour cream

1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp garlic salt (optional)

 Optional: Top with bacon

Seahawks Party Food – Russells Sprouts cheese dip recipe

Russells-sprouts-dip-russell-wilson-seahawks

Pin it here for later!

This recipe is for all your Russell Wilson fans. It’s a Brussels sprout cheesy dip, but I’m calling it Russells Sprout dip in honor of the Seahawks. Think artichoke dip, but better, oh so much better.

INGREDIENTS

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 shallot, diced finely

2 cloves garlic, minced

3 Cups of Brussell sprouts, sliced thinly and broken apart (think slaw style)

1/2 Cup sour cream

1/2 package of softened cream cheese ( about 4 ounces)

1 Cup mozzarella cheese, shredded (plus more for top)

1/2 Cup grated parmesan cheese (plus more for top)

1/4 tsp salt, black pepper

HOW TO PREPARE

1.) In a skillet on medium heat, add 2 Tablespoon olive oil, garlic and shallot. Cook until tender.

Saute-brussell-sprouts-dip

2.) Add your Brussells sprouts, salt, pepper and cook until tender (about 5 minutes). They should be slightly wilted

3.) In a separate bowl, mix sour cream, cream cheese, mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Stir well.

4.) Scrap mixture into an oven safe cooking bowl. I used a stoneware bowl from Pampered Chef, a cast iron skillet (with higher edges) will work as well. Top with more parmesan and mozzarella cheese

5.) Bake at 375 for 11-13 minutes until hot and bubbly.

Serve with BLUE corn tortilla chips, crostini, bread, regular tortilla chips, vegetables, pita bread, or crackers.

Football Party Foods – Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe

Stuff mushrooms always look much more fancy than they really are. They are easy to make, relatively inexpensive and the perfect bite-size snack. My husband makes really good stuffed mushrooms so I had him share his recipe with us.

INGREDIENTS

15-20 mushrooms – preferably Crimini or a meatier, larger mushroom

6 pieces of bacon – baked and crumbled (or you can fry it up if you prefer)

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

1/2 onion or shallot (diced)

3 or 4 cloves of garlic (minced)

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons italian herb seasoning

Parsley to taste, fresh or dried

Optional – blue cheese, crumbled

DIRECTIONS

Preheat over to 375 degrees F

Remove stems and clean mushrooms

Saute onion/shallot in garlic, butter and 1/2 of the olive oil

When the onions are translucent, add parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and herbs

Stir for 15-30 seconds – transfer contents to mixing bowl. Add blue cheese (if using) and bacon. Stir until combined.

Scoop mixture into mushrooms – about 1 tsp in each (or more depending on size of mushroom)

Lightly drizzle olive oil over mushrooms.

Bake on baking sheet for 20-25 minutes until tops are golden brown.

Hope you enjoy this recipe. Thanks to my husband for his recipe and for making the mushrooms for the sake of this post (we gladly taste-tested them again for you).
