Are you ready for some football?
I fully admit the Super Bowl is more about
the snacking and the commercials for me.
The January/February issue of Food Network Magazine had 50 flavors of popcorn with recipes designed using 12 to 16 cups freshly popped popcorn. There were at least a dozen flavors I wanted to try.
The Buffalo flavor jumped out a me for a Super Bowl snack and I had some Frank’s RedHot Sauce I picked up for our Buffalo Meatballs.
I made half a recipe to experiment and see if this flavor would be a touch down for game day. Buffalo flavored anything is a winner is my book but there is a holding penalty with this popcorn, it needs to be eaten right away so the popcorn doesn’t get soggy!
For Buffalo Flavor Popcorn:
Pop your corn using your preferred method. For 16 cups of popcorn, melt 6 tablespoons butter and combine with 1/3 cup Buffalo hot sauce; toss with hot popcorn, 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese and some celery leaves. Season with salt.
Serve in plastic cups for a crowd and a with a celery for garnish. Instead of mixing the blue cheese in with the popcorn, you could offer it on the side and let everyone help themselves, sprinkling in the amount they prefer.
You can find the 50 flavors of popcorn for your snacking from Food Network, here.
I’ll leave you with my favorite Super Bowl commercial of all time. I’d love to know if you have a favorite :)
