Super Bowl Ramp Up Series! Suburban Cheese Toasts

Since we just moved to Oregon, which we love by the way, don’t have a sphere of friends that we know well enough to invite over for the Super Bowl. Ahhh…poor Kirkleys. Don’t feel sorry for us. Actually this year will be a nice respite. Not to make Super Bowl foods for 25/50 people, nah…I love cooking for friends and family.  However, this year it will be just Jim and myself.

But we still want to take care of all our loyal readers. So here’s the beginning of our recipes for Super Bowl snacking, we’ll publish at least one or two a day during the next week. We usually have savory snacks, I’ve found in the past no one really wants sweets, but with this said, we’ll toss in one sweet during the next week.

I’m supremely OCD, all my friends and family give me a very wide berth. So I’m all about stuff that’s really good to eat but won’t destroy my Media Room and won’t look like a frigging mess half way through the dish. My best friend, Renee, once remarked, “Geeez, I’m glad I’m not in your head I think it is a very scary place.” So anyway, will give stunning recipes and they won’t make a mess. Yeah right!!! Don’t worry, you don’t half to get into my head, yikes!

I feel a little guilty to let you into my secret, since every cook wants their recipes to be awesome and appear very difficult. These are awesomely delicious and (falling off a log) easy.  Just make sure to prepare enough, I’m small and I can handily eat six or maybe twelve.    Make them ahead of time and pop them in the oven at half time. Sorry there my pesky OCD again, trying to organize all of you.  You’re going to love this go-to snack, trust me.
