This year I discovered that my tolerance for football has a strict three hour limit – especially when it means that the additional 45 minutes was spent watching a blackout while missing the newest episode of Downton Abbey. However Beyonce rocked it, and company was good. So was the food.
My contribution was this take on loaded potato skins. I sliced the potato pretty thin, and so it got a little too soft when I boiled it – it turned out fine, more like potato squares with cheese, bacon, and chives, but if you want more traditional chips, I’d just bring the slices to a boil and drain immediately. The sauce was amazing and ended up on everything…wings, quesadillas, sandwiches the next day…. definitely a winner.
Also in the mix: a fantastic smoked pork shoulder with homemade bbq sauce, multiple flavors of wings (homemade and otherwise), chips, salsa, shrimp, jalapeno poppers, stuffed peppers, and banana pudding. Go ‘Merica.
