TOP FIVE: One Dish Recipes for Super Bowl weekend
For me, the best part of the Super Bowl is a tie between the commercials and the food. But unfortunately, lots of super bowl snacks means lots of Super Bowl dishes, and since I usually end up washing baking sheets in the shower because the sink isn’t large enough, the fewer dishes the better. Here are my top five one-dish Super Bowl recipes:
Buffalo Chicken Dip
- 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch salad dressing
- 1/2 cup Buffalo Wing Sauce
- 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 cups chopped or shredded chicken
- Heat oven to 350°F. Place cream cheese into deep baking dish. Stir until smooth.
- Mix in salad dressing, Buffalo Sauce and cheese. Stir in chicken.
- Bake for 20 min. or until mixture is heated through; stir. Serve with crackers and celery and carrot sticks

Potato Chip Cookie
- 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 cup granulated sugar, divided
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon table salt (optional)
- 1/2 cup chopped and toasted pecans
- 1/2 cup finely crushed potato chips
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
Potato chip salt finish (optional)
- 1 tablespoon crushed potato chips
- 1 1/2 teaspoons flaked sea salt
Chocolate dip finish (optional)
- 4 ounces (115 grams) semi- or bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
- 1 teaspoon butter, canola oil or vegetable shortening
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter with 1/2 cup of the sugar until lightly and fluffy. Mix in the vanilla and table salt, if using, until smooth. Add the pecans, 1/2 cup crushed potato chips and flour together and mix until just combined.
- Place the remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a small bowl. Scoop a tablespoon-sized mound of dough and form it into a small ball with the palms of your hands. Roll the ball in the remaining sugar until coated. Place on prepared baking sheet and slightly flatten the cookies. Cookies only need to be an inch apart; they only spread a little. Sprinkle with a few flakes of the potato chip salt, if using. Repeat with remaining dough.
- Bake cookies until lightly golden at the edges, about 15 minutes. Transfer to cool on a wire rack.
- If dipping in chocolate, melt chocolate with butter, oil or shortening in a double boiler or in short bursts in the microwave. Stir until smooth. Dip half of each fully cooled cookie in the chocolate, and let dry and harden on a wire rack.
