All ya need is a cold beer and a dash of hot sauce..

These little sandwiches are sure to please your Super Bowl guests! You can also have most of the ingredients prepped early so all you have to do is basically throw them together, pop them in the oven and their ready to be enjoyed by all…. But first let me share my week……………………

Tuesday we had to go to Gainsville to have a recall fixed on our car and while we were there, looked at some cars they had for sale. We were tired of having to drive all the way down there just to get the Tiguan serviced and wanted to have a vehicle that we could have taken care of here locally. Well folks, we drove home in a 2015 Equinox LS which is like brand spanking new; moved on up in the world, love it!

Kenny was happy to get a Chevy back in the driveway!

It took us 4 hours at the dealership and we were due to go visit granddaughter which we did do, but just not for as long as we would have liked. Urlic was sound asleep when we arrived and still out like a light when we left. Brother Niklaus on the other hand, was wide awake and Gram and Pappy got to hold him and give him lotsa  hugs and kisses as he is becoming much more alert now. He is only two months old and almost too heavy for this old body to pick up, gonna be just like his older brother and daddy, BIG boy! We also got to take Eric’s pickles to him (Normally Sweethot Dill Pickles which we will also enjoy on our platter on Sunday) and as he was at work already he didn’t get to try them when we were there. When he got home though, he about demolished the whole jar before the night was over, guess he liked them, YES, score one for Gram!


Back to the Super Bowl and these little bites from heaven. Rooting for the Panthers Sunday but really don’t care who wins as we like both teams, picked them to see some newer blood take the title! We will be having Kenny’s traditional Po-Po Platter filled with lots of cold cuts, cheeses and assorted pickles piled high on all different kinds of crackers…. Can’t wait as it always seems to taste better on the actual day of the Bowl. I was so excited shopping the other day as I found that crescent rolls now come in sheets without the perforations, so perfect for this and so many other recipes! So with that I give you…..

Taco Sandwich Bites
  • 1 pkg (8 oz) crescent rolls or sheet
  • ½ lb lean ground beef
  • ½ pkg taco seasoning
  • 1 small tomato chopped small
  • ¼ to ½ cup of chopped onion
  • ⅓ cup chopped bell pepper
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Taco sauce and sour cream for dipping
  1. Cook ground beef and season with taco seasoning; drain off any fat.
  2. Unroll crescent rolls or sheet and halve (if using rolls, press together perforations on both halves.
  3. Place one half on a lightly greased cookie sheet and sprinkle with one cup of the cheese.
  4. Sprinkle seasoned beef over cheese followed by the onions, peppers, tomatoes and finally with the remaining cheese.
  5. Place the other half of dough on top and pinch edges together to seal.
  6. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 12 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Cut into desired sized squares and serve.

Hope you enjoy………… Go Panthers!!!!

Beer And Cheddar Cheese Puffs

Such a perfect way to serve your guests during a football game party or during the upcoming holiday get-togethers! This recipe makes about 4 to 5 dozen little buns depending on how heavy handed the cook is, ha ha! Yes, I’m still on a cheese kick but with company coming this weekend, I wanted something to munch on while Kenny and I kick their butts playing poker! I came across this recipe in my older book, Recipes on Parade, and with a few changes, this was the way I rocked! You can fill these lite little babies up with anything your heart desires, from chicken salad to a cheese spread which I put on mine today. Kenny is now opting to use them for his Po Po platter for an upcoming football game. I was going to ask you to keep a secret for me but then I realized Kenny would find an open beer can in the frig with half of it gone. You see, I used his Yuengling lager beer for this recipe, OOPS! So with that, on with the party……………

Honey...You been drinking my beer?

Beer And Cheddar Cheese Puffs
  • ½ cup beer, not lite and I used the Yuengling lager
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ teas Worcestershire
  • ¼ teas salt, I used pink sea salt so I did not use quite as much
  • 1/16 teas cayenne pepper or more if you like them a little hotter
  • ¾ cup finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  1. Combine the beer and butter in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to low and add flour all at once; stir constantly for about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball.
  3. Remove from heat and add the Worcestershire sauce, salt, cayenne and cheese; beat well to blend mixture and cool slightly.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, beating until smooth after each addition.
  5. Drop by teaspoonfuls on an un-greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  7. Cool on a wire rack.
  8. Remove tops and fill with desired filling and return tops to serve.


Hope you enjoy at your next party, filled with your favorite filling or an assortment of fillings to satisfy everyone’s taste buds……………
