Column: Susan McClanahan: A few game-day recipes (2/4/21)

The biggest football game of the year is coming in a few days, and that means snacks, finger foods and treats in front of the television to enjoy the game.

Some football fans enjoy their own food traditions, such as chili, barbecue or loaded baked potato bar, but at our house, we usually do a few finger foods and appetizer type items to enjoy throughout the game.

Today, I have pulled together a few recipes for you to look over and see if any of these might make it onto your football game buffet.

May your favorite team win!

Sweet Heat Pickles

Sweet Heat Pickles will leave you wondering why you haven’t made them before. These pickles are delicious on a sandwich or BBQ, but are also good nibbled on as a snack or on a cheese and snack board.

* 1 large jar (about 46 ounces) plain Dill pickles , about 6 cups sliced (not kosher dill – they do not work with this recipe – this is important)

* 2 cups sugar

* 6 cloves garlic, minced

* 2 teaspoons fresh jalapeño, chopped, less depending on how much heat you like

* 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes

* 2 teaspoons parsley, chopped

Drain pickles and discard juice. Save the jar to store pickles in later. Slice pickles into 1/4 to 1/2 inch.

Begin layering into a larger jar: 1-1/2 cup of pickles per layer. Top the pickles with 1/2 cup sugar, 2 cloves of garlic sliced or chopped, 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon of chopped jalapeño.

Repeat layers until all pickles are used. Pour any remaining sugar on top.

Cover jar and store on the counter for about an hour, or until the sugar begins to liquefy.

Stir, turn jar over and upside down, or simply shake to mix the pickles well, and pull any undissolved sugar up from the bottom.

Cover and leave on the counter for several more hours, or overnight. Stir and refrigerate 1 to 2 additional days.

Red Velvet Earthquake Cake

Earthquake cakes are usually made with a German chocolate cake mix, however this one uses red velvet and is prepared it in a different way.

Don’t forget to try Chocolate Fudge and Pumpkin too!

* 1/2 cup butter

* 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

* 1 teaspoon vanilla

Prepare cake mix according to the package directions. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Spoon dollops of the cream cheese mixture onto the batter leaving a 1-inch edge. Lightly swirl the batter around continuing to leave a 1-inch edge.

Bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes. Allow to cool before slicing.
