My love for my team and the sport has lead me to purchase the NFL package…
I like to think of it as having a second job.
I wake up early (living in Arizona means games start at 10 or 11)
Whip up yummy treats (on a typical Sunday we can have at least 10 people over)
Clean up after every one
OH and cheering for my/your team...
Even if you’re not a football fan, you have to love the fact that with football comes munching...
But all this munching is expensive. So I challenged myself to pick a recipe that I found off of pinterest and make it for the least amount of money possible... This way us, hostess with the mostessest don’t have to break the bank...
I used all store brand ingredients and coupons, oh and I had Mayo at the house (I figure most people do) but the total cost was $15.29 with bread and chips.
Here’s what was on today’s menu.
(I used & tweaked the recipe from food network I found via pinterest)
· 1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach (Store brand)
· 2 (13 3/4-ounce) cans artichoke hearts (Store brand)
· 1/2 cup mayonnaise (had at house)
· 1/3 cup sour cream (Store brand)
· 1/3 Philadelphia Cooking Cream (original)
· 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan (Coupon for Sargento)
· 1 cup grated pepper jack cheese (Coupon for Sargento)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a casserole dish with nonstick spray.
Heat the spinach in a microwave oven on high for 5 minutes and squeeze dry. Drain the artichoke hearts and use a food processor or by hand coarsely chop.
Combine all the ingredients except the jack cheese in a large bowl. Stir well. Scrape into the prepared casserole dish and sprinkle the jack cheese on top. Bake for 30 minutes. Transfer to a chafing dish and keep warm over a low flame. I use a little dipper crock-pot to keep the dip warm and the extra dip I keep in the oven. You can do as I do and replace after you take J
Serve with bread or chips or both…
