Big game today, Packers vs Cowboys. I love sports. I love making snacks for game day parties. I have many go to recipes (I’ll post more as the parties go on throughout the year) for parties. One of the ones that is most requested are my Spicy Pork Biscuits. These are super easy to make and are pretty quick to make. Who doesn’t love easy and quick snacks? What are some of your favorite game day snacks?
Spicy Pork Biscuits
– 1 lb Hot pork sausage (if you don’t want it spicy use mild)
– 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
– 2 canned refrigerated biscuits (10 biscuits in a can)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Brown sausage over medium heat. Drain sausage.
Mix sausage and cheese together in a medium bowl.
Take each biscuit and divide into two layers.
On each flattened biscuit, put one tablespoon of meat mixture on half of the biscuit.
Fold biscuit over and pinch sides shut.
Place on cookie sheet and back for 13 mins or until golden brown.
After what seemed to be a really long week. I wanted to make something light and refreshing to end the week. My roommate and I love sangria. I wanted find one to make for us to enjoy on Friday night after work. When I searched for white sangria (our favorite kind), I found this Peach Mango Pineapple White Sangria. I just had to try a version of it. I made it Thursday night so we could enjoy it on Friday night. The recipe says that it tastes better if it sits for awhile. For the bottle of wine I used Moscato as that is what I had on hand. I also just used an 8 oz can of pineapple chunks. The last part I changed was the amount of sugar. I used only 2 tablespoons. As Averie said “to taste.” I liked it just using the 2 tablespoons, but everyone has different tastes.
Since I don’t have a large pitcher I just divided up the mango chunks and pineapple chunks into three mason jars. Then in a large measuring cup, I poured the wine and peach schnapps and added the sugar. Stirred that together and then added the pineapple juice. After that mixed, I pour the liquid evenly into my three mason jars, put the lids on, gently shook them and put the in the fridge.
In the morning I gently shook them before I headed off to work. All day at work all I could think about was the sangria that was in the fridge waiting for me. I could not wait to try it. When my roommate and I got home, we sat out on the porch to enjoy our sangria. It was delightful.
