Great snacks for the Grey Cup Sunday

The Grey Cup is this Sunday and if you are having friends over there are many food tid-bits you can serve to your pigskin-watching friends.

The Grey Cup is this Sunday afternoon and if you are having friends over for the clash between the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Saskatchewan Roughriders there are many food tid-bits that you can serve to your pigskin-watching friends.

Snacks to enjoy while watching the Sunday Grey Cup can be more than just chips, dip and chicken.

No one can help themselves from taking multiple servings of finger food that is delicious and filling.

A scrumptious chilli cheese dip is easily made by first browning a pound of ground beef.

Remove the excess grease and then place the meat in a crockpot with a pound of cubed cheese and half a tsp of chilli powder.

Add one can of diced tomatoes and two tsp of Worcestershire sauce.

Mix well, cover and cook on high for one hour or until all of the cheese is melted.

Serve with tortilla chips.

Pepperoni rolls are made by brushing melted butter onto refrigerated crescent roll dough.

Then place three to four pepperoni slices in each crescent before rolling up.

Place pepperoni rolls on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Mozzarella cheese can also be included before rolling.

Hot dogs, of course, are favourites during half time and many will be consumed during the Grey Cup.

Here is a different way to do the chilli dog.

Wrap the dog in crescent roll dough and some bacon, and perhaps some salsa and then cook in the oven for about 10 minutes or until done.

Miniature sub sandwiches are other great football game snacks that are simple and easy to make.

Use various meats, cheese, pickles and olives along with some mayo, then place them on sub buns and cut into individuals servings.

Of course peanuts are always welcomed during half-time shows.

I’m serving some food that will have green food colouring added to match the colour of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

When Saskatchewan beat Hamilton in the Grey Cup it could be another very spectacular game.

The Rider VS Hamilton some years ago was one of the best Grey Cup games ever played, and I suspect this one on Sunday will be no different.

Prediction … Saskatchewan by 13 points and they will celebrate in Regina where the Grey Cup is being played.

Go Rider Go…

Bye for now and Goood Cooking.
