College football means one thing...FOOD!

Saturdays in the South mean one thing. College football! Now me personally, I am more of a NBA fan but all of my friends really love it so I see it as an opportunity to cook! This past Saturday I tested out some favorites along with a new recipe I found on Pinterest. Everyone loved what I made but with it being free food, who would complain? Our menu was: French Bread Pizza, Jalapeno Poppers, MexiCorn Dip, and my grandma's Chocolate Sheet Cake. In this post I am just going to talk about the appetizers and have the cake in my next post. It is a lot more labor intensive the other foods today! Let's get started!

French Bread Pizza
This is a Recipe that is just what it says it is. Pizza made on halves of french bread purchased from the grocery store. It's simple enough. Bread base topped with pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni and stuck in the oven to warm up and melt the cheese. My pizza went in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes but really just place it in the oven until the cheese is all melted and gooey! Yum

Jalapeno Poppers
For these poppers all you need is a can of crescent rolls, cream cheese, and sliced jalapenos. One can of 8 crescent rolls will yield 16 poppers. To prepare cut each crescent roll triangle in half, place a small dollop of cream cheese on the new smaller roll, then place two jalapeno rings on top of the cream cheese. Wrap up in a bundle and bake at 350 until golden brown. You might want to make more than one package of these because they go fast!

MexiCorn Dip
This dip is my go to dip to take to any gathering I am invited to. It is so simple, requires practically no prep time, and is always a hit! For this dip you need one 16 oz container of sour cream, 2 cups of shredded cheese, 1 can of drained Rotel, and 2 cans of drained MexiCorn. Now throw all of those ingredients into a container, stir it all together, and chill until you are ready to serve! The picture above does not do it justice! I had to fight off my roommate's boyfriend just to get this picture!
