BILLINGS - The fever is on... we're talking Super Bowl fever! Between now and Feb 3, football fanatics across the country will be talking about only "the best" - the best players, the best strategies, the best TV commercials and of course, the best food that will make Super Bowl 2013 the most talked about event for months to come. To make your party, the best, Monica Sayler from Albertsons joined The Noon News team on Friday with some great Super Bowl food menu ideas.
"The most important thing to remember as a host is that you've got options!" advised Monica.
Albertsons can cater your party!
If you're all about sitting down with your company to enjoy the game without having to deal with too much preparation, then just stop by Albertsons' service deli and they'll take care of your whole menu:
• Foot-long sandwiches
• Chips and hummus
• Cracker and cheese tray
• Cookie & cupcakes
Or... Do it Yourself!
But if Super Bowl is the opportunity for you to show off some of your cooking skills, then here are some great and easy game-winning chicken wing recipe for you!
Original Crispy-Crunchy Chicken Drumettes
Drumettes, also called "drummies," are the meatiest section of the chicken wings.
-2 ½ lbs (about 20) frozen chicken drumettes
-½ cup all-purpose flour
-½ teaspoon salt
-¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
-2 tablespoons water
-2 cups Panko crumbs
-3 tablespoons Olive oil
-¼ teaspoon Cayenne powder
-Nonstick cooking spray
-Thaw the frozen chicken drumettes according to the package;
-Preheat oven to 375 degrees F;
-Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and fit with a wire rack;
-Spray the rack with nonstick cooking spray and set aside;
-Combine ½ cup all-purpose flour, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper in a medium bowl and set aside;
-Combine the 2 beaten eggs and 2 tablespoons of water in another bowl and set aside;
-Combine the 2 cups Panko crumbs, 3 tablespoons Olive oil and ¼ teaspoon Cayenne powder in another bowl and set aside;
-Line the bowls in front of you - the flour mixture, the egg mixture and the Panko
mixture. Dip a drumette in the flour mixture; roll around to coat. Shake off excess flour and dip drumette into the egg mixture. Transfer drumette to the Panko mixture; roll around until evenly coated. Place coated drumette on the prepared wire rack. Repeat steps with remaining drumettes and arrange, evenly spaced, on the prepared rack.
-Bake drumettes in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until drumettes are golden brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the drumette reads 165 degrees.
-Serve the drumettes with honey-mustard salad dressing for dipping. This makes 20 drumettes or 6 to 10 appetizer servings.
7 layer dip
Who doesn't love the traditional 7 layer dip? It's a favorite at my house. But instead of preparing it in a big pan, make individual servings for your guests!
-Refried pinto or black beans
-Shredded pepper jack cheese
-Diced olives, tomatoes & green onions
-Layer cups with each ingredient
-Top with the cheese, olives, tomatoes and onions
-Insert a few chips in each cup but make sure you have enough on hand .
***Remember that you can also ask guests to bring their favorite snack too!***
