***Please note... I am not by any means encouraging you to throw a HUGE party or gather unintentionally. I want you to enjoy yourselves, but be smart, stay safe and respect others well beings.
OK, So with COVID, this might look different for almost everyone... but you can still make some fun food, and if you have a family at home, these recipes will be a great way to enjoy a fun time. We're a family of 7, so pretty much every meal is a rather large spread. But anytime I have an excuse to cook up some fun food we can eat all day, I will.
Chili is always a great grab when your hungry. It's perfect in a slow cooker. You can have the toppings ready in food storage containers, with spoons and tongs on top and a laddle on the side for the chili.
2. Sloppy Joes
Sloppy Joes are another great slow cooker item. Make the meat ahead of time, plop it in the slow cooker, have the bread and sides out for everyone to grab when they're hungry.
Tortilla Soup Gumbo is yet another great slow cooker recipe. Make the soup (minus the rice) and have it sit in a slow cooker. Make the rice, the tortilla strips and have all you toppings on the side ready for someone to serve up their own bowl.
These are perfect for lunch, dinner, appetizer, whatever. They can be made with beef, venison, chicken, turkey, or pork. Don't have Morels? No Worries! Use button mushrooms.
And Yes.... These can also go in a slow cooker (you know I gotchu).
Not Slower Cooker Friendly... But still Super Bowl Worthy
This one is sure to impress the family. This is a Summer favorite in our house. But with the glory of modern day grocery stores, you can make these all year round. It's a bright fresh food that will be a nice addition to the wings, sloppy joes, or brats. Have some picky eaters? No worries, just turn some into cheesy garlic bread. This is great as a meal or an appetizer.
Do I really need to explain this one? 😉
Fish, beer... add some fries, chips or just eat on it's own. Either way, it's a win!
This is not only a family favorite, but a fan favorite. I have received rave reviews on this recipe. Everyone that has had it has said they love it. My husband and I created this recipe together after many times being disappointed with boxed batter.
Since the 1920's these have been a go to appetizer for parties, events, and everything in between. They're cheap, inexpensive and just plain delicious.
Don't worry about buying a fancy egg platter. They look good just nestled together on a cutting board like this picture I took for the blog post.
