Easy Finger Food Recipes for
Super Bowl Sunday Party

Lobster Football Fritters
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 egg
¼ cup milk
1 cup finely chopped lobster or cod (or substitute vegetables such as carrots and zucchini)
1 tablespoon minced onion
1 tablespoon Tabasco Green Pepper Sauce
Olive or canola oil

In a medium-large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the egg in the milk and add lobster (or chopped vegetables), onion and Tabasco sauce. Pour this milk mixture into the flour mixture. Mix ingredients (do not beat) until blended. Batter will be thick.

In a skillet, add oil to cover about a ¼ inch in the pan. Heat on med-high til hot, but not “smoking hot.” Drop heaping teaspoons of batter in hot oil. Brown each side about one minute, or until well heated. Serve warm with sour cream. Eat with your fingers! (Can be made ahead of time and warmed up in a 400 degrees oven for 5-8 mins.)

Mrs. Stedman’s Pre-Game - Baked Bacon Breadsticks
1 box thin breadsticks (Alessi Grissini Torinesi , 3oz/product of Italy/our favorite brand)
1 package bacon 16oz – not “thick” slice
1 container parmesan cheese (“finely grated” packaged deli style)

Break each breadstick in half. Slice package of bacon “in half” vertically. Wrap a half strip of bacon on each breadstick. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on flat tray. Roll bacon-wrapped breadsticks in parmesan cheese. Then place each breadstick on a cookie sheet. Bake at 200 degrees for 1 hour or until “shriveled.” Freeze or eat. These are simply “outstanding.”

Aunt Karnee’s Winning Peanut Butter Fudge
1 lb box 10x powdered Dominos Confectioners Sugar
½ cup milk
2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup (more or less) peanut butter
1 1/2 - 2 cups marshmallow creme

In med-large saucepan, combine sugar, milk and butter. Over med-high heat, bring mixture to a full rolling boil. Boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and immediately add peanut butter and marshmallow crème. With a wooden spoon, beat in peanut butter and marshmallow until smooth. Pour into an 8-9 inch cake pan. Cool.

If desired, melt 5 oz Hershey’s Chocolate Candy Bar. Cool chocolate and spread carefully over fudge that has been allowed to set. Fudge can be chilled in refrigerator and then cut into squares. A perfect game ending treat - tastes great even if your favorite team loses!
