Super Bowl Meatballs

myfamilyrecipes2u

Don’t you just love food you can just pick up and eat?  When you are having a get together, like super bowl, where everyone gathers around a TV easy foods are the best.  These meatballs were tasty and with individual servings were the perfect choice for this party.

As in any group, you have one person that tries to get in a good laugh.  This time would be my husband.  I had individual little forks in the meatballs for easier eating, he proceeded to use that tiny fork to eat the rest of his meal, even going so far as to put chili in the little bowl and eat from there.  His reasoning, it slows down my eating!!

Recipe: Cheesy Scrolls

mmmmm…. looks yummy!

Trojan Crackling

Cheesy ScrollsThis recipe for cheesy scrolls is my go to for a quick snack to knock up in absolutely no time if I have hungry guests. They’re also good after a little too much to drink and you’re sitting around with drunk munchies and shouldn’t attempt cooking anything too difficult. It only requires a few things kept on hand in the fridge, freezer and pantry and they are always a hit. They are, of course, in no way very healthy.

Ingredients

25 small vine-ripened tomatoes

1 bunch  fresh basil (about 80 grams or 3 oz)

400 grams (1 2/3 cups) ricotta, preferably homemade

1 Tbsp aged balsamic, preferably at least 12 years old

100 grams (3.5 oz) freshly grated parmigiano reggiano

salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

DSC02472
Halve the tomatoes crosswise.

Remove the seeds with your fingers (works best) or a small spoon.

Allow the tomatoes to drain on paper towels.

Combine the ricotta, most of the basil, and parmigiano in the bowl of a blender. Keep enough basil for garnish.
