We have been having issues with 24/7 so we didn't do Cooking on a Budget this week but here are the recipes for the food I gave the guys on Monday for the Football Food Review.
SHRIMP THERESA – My guests and I were trying to come up with a good name for these, as they are shrimp on toast, but shrimp toast is an Asian appetizer that I just love. Anyways, we liked the name Theresa for an Italian name so this is what we are calling it! For these I sliced up a French baguette and olive oiled each side and toasted lightly. For my topping, melt butter and garlic in pan, when garlic is fragrant add in chopped, deveined, peeled shrimp, softened cream cheese, chopped fontina cheese, shaved parmesan cheese, chopped scallions, chopped parsley, crushed red pepper, and old bay hot seasoning and mix until soft, combined and shrimp cooked through. Then put on top of your toast, and broil your toast until cheese is golden and bubble.
BACON CRACK – Cook bacon and then chop. Spread out salt and pepper kettle cooked chips (if you can find the waffle ones use those) on to a cookie sheet and then sprinkle with brown sugar and drizzle with maple syrup. Then top with your chopped bacon, shredded sharp cheddar cheese and bake at 375 until cheese is melted. Cool and then chop into squares.
PULLED PORK CRESCENTS – Very easy to put your pork butt in a crock pot with chunks of onions and seasoned with salt and pepper and let cook on low for 8 hours. When done drain the water, shred and add your favorite bbq sauce. I use half Kansas city and have original bbq sauces. Take your crescent rolls, put some shredded pepper jack cheese, top with your pulled pork, and roll and then back for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
