Goodies for Grey Cup 2011

23 Nov

Party planning has begun for Sunday’s Grey Cup.

Unable to muster enthusiasm for yet another pot of chili, we are busting out saucy Italian meatball subs on crusty buns topped with havarti. So easy.

Deconstructed chicken wing dip is making another scheduled appearance with celery and other crudite. Our gang is a bit wussy about heat, so next time, we may use less than half a cup of Franks hot wing sauce. It still packs a wallop.

Cheesy refried bean dip is a must. An oldie but a goodie.

Chex Mix/Nuts and Bolts in wooden bowls harkens to our childhood. It’s not Grey Cup without ’em.

Fresh fruit skewers with strawberries, red grapes and whatever looks juicy should lighten the, ahem, load.

To wash it all down, we are featuring a special libation, the Smirnakee — a half-an-half concoction of Smirnoff Ice and Kokanee. Seems kind of game day to us.

UPDATE: Wish we’d seen this recipe sooner. Maybe next year!
From Paula Deen
1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken breasts (about 4 breasts)
1 (1-pound) package sliced bacon
2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons chili powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes. Cut each bacon slice into thirds. Wrap each chicken cube with bacon and secure with a wooden pick. Stir together brown sugar and chili powder. Dredge wrapped chicken in mixture. Coat a rack and broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken wrap on rack in broiler pan. Bake 350 for 30 to 35 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
