Playoff Football Fiesta: What We Made and Devoured

Published 1/20/14 by:

Full disclosure: my family loves the New England Patriots. When my parents are in Florida for the winter and the games aren’t nationally televised, they head to a restaurant or bar for the entire Sunday afternoon to be able to see the game. So when the Patriots are taking on Peyton Manning and the Broncos in a playoff game that leads to the Superbowl, and it coincides with a Three-day weekend? Well, friends need to come over, and food needs to be devoured. So below you will see two fantastic recipes that I will be adding to my personal cookbook because they were a total hit. For recipe details please see the included links from the blogs I found these delicious treats on.


Tater Totchos

Do you like tater tots? Eggs? Cheese? Guacamole? Then these Tater Totchos are a home run. This is a hearty brunch item, best served in individual crockpots like the French onion soup crocks you see in this picture. I used my Dutch Oven to cook everything, and gave my guests heaping servings on plates. I let them salsa and guacamole at their own risk. I think the next time I make these, I will add some onions into the mix.


These are sinful. These are muffins that are doughnuts, or doughnuts that are muffins. You make them in a mini muffin tin, and no frying is necessary, and yet they taste like sugary doughnuts. My brother coined them “muffnuts”, but I also like “duffins”. These mini doughnut muffins will be a hit with kids and adults. Perhaps next time I’ll serve them with some vanilla ice cream and instead of doing a cinnamon and sugar roll, I may put brown sugar into the mix. Okay, I’m gaining weight just writing this post.

What do y’all make for the playoffs? Better yet, what are you making for the Superbowl?
