Chef Aaron (still recovering from the Eagles loss in the NFC championship) decided to cheer himself up the best way he knows how --- Jump in the kitchen and create some SUPER recipes for the Big Game.
BUFFALO CHICKEN CHEESE BALLS
Big Daddy started off by picking the meat off of a cooked rotisserie chicken.
He placed the chicken in a large bowl and added scallions and cheddar cheese and mixed this in with hot sauce and black pepper.
He then rolled the chicken mix into 2-ounce golf-ball sized balls.
Chef Aaron then setup his favorite 3-bowl assembly line. He poured flour, eggs and Panko bread crumbs into their respective bowls.
After setting up the line - he rolled each chicken ball in the flour, then the egg and then the bread crumbs (only in that order) and set them aside until the oil in the deep fryer was hot.
He dipped the batch into the oil for about 2 minutes, removed the batch and dumped them into a paper-towel lined dish.
Spicy Jalapeno Sliders
Chef got himself into a spicy mood so he added a pound of ground beef in a bowl and mixed it with jalapenos (seeded and diced fine), shallots, panko, heavy cream, Monterey Jack cheese and garlic powder.
He mixed all the ingredients and formed several small patties and placed them in the oven for 15 minutes.
HOAGIE STYLE PIZZA
Big Daddy decided to put a special spin on 2 Jersey & Philly favorites, by joining them together in a Hoagie style pizza. He stretched out some pizza dough and drizzled olive oil onto both sides.
He then grilled the pizza dough for about 2 minutes on each side. He then created 2 special "pizza sauces" for his Hoagie Pizza, an Olive Tapenade and a Sun-Dried Tomato Chutney.
Hold up ... seems to me that Big Daddy was doing all the work for the big game, so he invited his buddies over to help him finish the job.
DA BOYZ !!
Wayne, Scott and Big Daddy's lil' bro Donovan went into the kitchen to help finish off the Hoagie Pizza and the Spicy Jalapeno Sliders.
While the other boys - Orion, Al and Tank were ..... ummmmm..... Supervising ??
