Super Bowl XLVIII is almost upon us. If you’re not a Seahawks or Broncos fan, that means you’re spending your time focusing on one thing — Super Bowl food. I’m not a huge football fan, but I am a huge food fan (if you haven’t already guessed). That means this Sunday gives me yet another reason to create and consume mounds of delectable goodies.
I was attempting to finalize this weekend’s menu when I found myself scrolling through some of my own Cooking On Empty recipes. To my surprise, I have a lot a dishes that would be perfect for an easy, cheap, and delicious Super Bowl party. To make it easier, I’ve complied them all in one place.
Here are the top five Cooking On Empty dishes for the perfect Super Bowl party.
5. Super Bowl Sunday White Sangria
Don, my roommate’s live-in boyfriend, loves buffalo wings. He is also slightly health conscious, so he asked me to make him a healthier version.
I love cooking for Don because he always compliments my food, so obviously I said yes.
After some research, I pulled together a few recipes. The baked version does save some deep-fried calories, but considering wing sauce is a mixture of butter and hot sauce, you’re not doing your waist a huge favor.
With that said, if you’re going to eat buffalo wings, why not make them baked? Here’s the recipe I came up with.
