What are you going to serve at your Super Bowl party? Plan ahead, and you can use your crockpot to make some delicious Super Bowl party food Here are are few ideas to get started with.
Crockpots are awesome because they let you “set it and forget it” instead of being stuck standing by the stove. A crockpot can keep the food inside it warm until it is ready to be served. Crock-pots make it easy for guests to cook something at home and bring it to the Super Bowl party to share.
Crock-Pot Cheeseburger Joes
You may have heard of “Sloppy Joes”. They are typically cooked in a skillet on the stove and then served in a hamburger bun. The Crock-Pot Ladies have a great recipe for a crockpot version of this simple, yet tasty, food.
Their recipe makes 8 to 10 servings. You will need 2 pounds of lean ground beef, diced onion, diced red bell peppers, a can of diced tomatoes, some ground mustard, oregano, and barbecue seasoning. You will also need 16 ounces of Velveeta cheese (that has been cut into cubes). Cover the crockpot and cook it on low for 2 to 4 hours. Make sure you have hamburger buns to serve it on.
Marsha Goodemoot’s Slow-Cooker Turkey Chili
This crockpot recipe comes from Delish.com. It makes 6 servings. The use of turkey, instead of ground beef, makes this recipe a little bit healthier. You will need an 8 quart crockpot.
Start with 1 pound of turkey that you will brown in a skillet. Delish suggests you use 93 percent fat free turkey. You will also need chili powder, minced garlic, diced onion, diced green bell pepper, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of kidney beans, and a can of chili beans. When it is ready to be served, add a dollop of reduced fat sour cream on top of the chili.
Slow-Cooker Sausage and Peppers
A blog that is delightfully named “Pass the Sushi” has a great crock-pot recipe for your Super Bowl party. It makes messy sandwiches that are designed for people who have big appetites.
You will need some olive oil, 1 pound of ground sweet sausage, 1 and a half pounds of ground beef, 2 cans of fire roasted tomatoes, 1 can of tomato sauce, sliced onion, red pepper, and green pepper, and some sliced provolone or mozzarella cheese. You also need some fresh rolls to use as the bread for the sandwich.
Start by browning the sausage. After you have all the ingredients in the crock-pot, you will need to cook it on low for 5 to 7 hours. Toast the bread rolls with a slice of mozzarella on each until each is golden brown and the cheese starts melting.
