Domenica Ricetta Super Bowl snack ideas
To all the Elvis Presley fans out there Happy Birthday Elvis! He was born January 8th, 1935; had he lived he would be 77 years old. Jaxport here in Jacksonville which is off of of I 295 east and is just north of the Dames Point Bridge, is the seaport for business and pleasure boats. There is an Elvis Cruise from January 12th-16th that is heading from Jacksonville to Nassau in the Bahamas. Celebrate and remember the King, to all those that are sailing off, Bon Voyage!
Elvis’ favorite sandwich was Italian Bread with bacon, bananas and peanut butter. Eating Italian cannot look to the King for inspiration for Italian food. So this Sunday recipe is a simple no cooking recipe with 2 ideas for Publix Bakery Chicago Style Italian bread. Of course homemade bread can be used following the recipe for Italian Bread from Eating Italian published last fall. Getting ready for the Super Bowl in just about 4 weeks can be given a lending hand with today’s easy warm snacks or last year’s homemade sausage bread that can be made ahead and frozen.
***A quick recipe tip***
for this week is Pita Chips that are practically homemade. Use one 12 ounce bag of Toufayan whole wheat pita bread; cut each round bread into triangles in a random fashion; separate each triangle into 2 pieces; place on baking stone; spray or drizzles with olive oil; sprinkle with sea salt and heat in 350 degree oven for no more than 20 minutes; check after 10 minutes and then watch closely until golden brown. These go great with hummus or Publix Spinach Dip. Start Kickoff party planning now.
