Are you ready for some football?
The big game is upon us. Honestly I couldn’t care less about who is playing in the Super Bowl this year, because I am a big fat loser.
None of my teams — the Buccaneers, the Steelers, or The Patriots — made it to the game, so I’m a little bitter. However, I can still put on a brave face and fake it.
Because you know what? Football isn’t only about the ball.
In my opinion it is ALL about the food. We’re talking foods of all kinds.
You have to have a nice spread.
I have some delicious recipes on my site that would be perfect for the last big football game of the year.
This year I decided to take the ever-so-popular Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip and make it more fun.
Anything rolled up in a crescent roll is just about perfection in my opinion.
I brought these little bad boys to the playoff game, and two men ate all of them in 0.2 seconds, I kid you not.
Fortunately, I did get a bite and they were deeee-licious!
And the dip, I could lick the bowl.
I had a spare second when I wasn’t running the kids to baseball or gym, so I cooked the chicken two days in advance to make this scrumptious little appetizer even easier.
Then on game day, all I had to do was mix everything together and throw it in the oven. Super FAST and SUPER easy.
Take your crescent roll dough and slightly spread it out while pressing with your fingers to close the seams together.
Spread the chicken wing dip over the crescent dough.
Roll her up.
Using dental floss, shimmy the floss under the dough where you want to make the cut. Take the floss ends in each hand and wrap up and around so the floss now crosses and “cuts” the dough. It basically squeezes the dough until it is sliced. Bake!
And there you have it! YUM.
