You can make Superbowl food from your kitchen whether short on cash or run out of food stamps, no worry, you can make a Super bowl meal from what’s already in your kitchen. Super bowl weekend is an awesome time for the football enthusiasts who have $5000 to spend on one ticket and can be for anyone that is on a budget or just want to save a little cash. The key to sporting events like the Super bowl or any event is to work with what you already have in the kitchen.
The most common option is to do a potluck, everybody brings something edible.
The second option is to find a two for one coupon for pizza and 2-liter soda for $20.
The third option and most certainly the most fun whether you love to cook or not because your friends will be amazed at what you can do with a little imagination. Put on some music like Sam Hankins or JPenn for inspiration.
So lets say you got three friends coming over and you don’t want them to feel awkward about your budget issues but you want them to have as much fun as if at a bar or lavish party with food to the plenty. Get a few burger patties, onions, tomatoes, black pepper, italian seasoning or seasoning salt. Ok , if your onion is medium just us one, if small onions cut up two in circular slices and place on the bottom of the pan. Then lay the burger patties on top of the onions and let them cook.
When the onions are caramelized flip the onion and burger over so the pink side touches the pan. Cook through, then pile up the onion on top of burger it should be shaped like a bowl with edges curved up. Sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top. If you got nacho chips put about four of them on a plate. Cut the cheesy burger into pieces like you are cutting it into pizza squares. Scoop onto the chips, top with a little cheese and tomato, now each person has a nacho plate.
Take another onion, tomato, cilantro, lime, green onion (if you have one) green pepper or whatever color pepper you have in the kitchen. Chop all the ingredients squeeze some lime on it let it sit for about 30 to 60 minutes. Do not drain the juices from the tomatoes or ingredients. Stick a pickle on the plate if you want and no matter how much they jump they will be full and enjoy the game. You can also add onion dip to sour cream to make a second dip or add Pace Picante to cheese.
Easy dessert is dump cake. One can of any fruit or a fresh fruit, stick of butter.
Pour or cut up fruit into cake pan pour cake batter on top of fruit and them cut up stick of butter in pieces and place on top of the uncooked cake mix. Place in oven at temperature on box for the allotted time.
