Friday Football Fare

One of the most fun things about Game Day to me is deciding what to make, making it and serving it! Whether at home or at the game, we always try to make it festive!
Pepperoni Rolls
1 pkg. crescent rolls
Pepperoni slices
Cubed Cheese
Preheat oven to temperature on the package of crescent rolls. Seperate each crescent roll and add about 4 pieces of pepperoni and 4 pieces of cheese to each section. Don't think this is too much - it's not! Press all the edges closed so that you can't see what is inside. Place on a baking sheet and bake according to package directions. These may be made ahead of time and refrigerated until ready to bake. Another option is to use cheese with diced vegetables such as peppers, mushrooms, onions and a little spaghetti sauce.
Note: This recipe was contributed to "Game Day Specialties" * (a fundraising cookbook for Sprayberry Education Center, Annie's school) by Karen Alles, wife of Todd Alles, former Director of Football Operations at the University of Alabama.

Fruit Salad with Honey Dressing

  2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. vinegar
1/3 c. honey
1 c. salad oil
1 1/2 tsp. celery seeds
1 tsp. paprika
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. grated onion

Place first 5 ingredients into small mixer bowl; mix. Add
oil, drop by drop; beat until dressing has thickened. Stir
next 4 ingredients together; add to honey mixture by
spoonfuls. Beat well until thickened. Store in glass jar;
use for any fruit salad.

Roasted Red Pepper Dip
1 C. mayonnaise
1/2 jar roasted red peppers
1 t. dried basil
1/2 C.sour cream
Blend mayonnaise, red peppers, and basil in a food processor until smooth. Stir in sour cream, chill and serve with tortilla chips! 
Butterfinger Pie
6 crushed Butterfinger candy bars
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 12 oz. carton Cook Whip
1 graham cracker crust
Mix first 3 ingredients together. Put in pie crust. Chill before serving. You might want to put an additional crushed Butterfinger on top!

 Pineapple Lemonade Punch
1/2 cup powdered lemonade drink mix
1 can large can pineapple juice
2 cans Sprite
2 cups water
Mix all ingredients. Chill and serve or serve over ice!
Note: My punch has more of a red/orange look because I used pink lemonade mix that I had on hand. Very refreshing and tasty drink! My girls loved it!

My cheerleaders and I enjoyed this "stay at home" tailgate spread
 while Daddy was working a game for ESPN!
 We love Game Day!
