Football is my least favorite sport. However I do like to eat. So instead of rooting for a team this Sunday I plan on eating my weight in appetizers and finger foods.
If you are like me and just go to the party to eat... I have included 20 of my favorite tailgate foods from around the web as well as a new recipe for my Steak Bomb Egg Rolls with Horseradish Cheddar Dip.
Steak Bomb Egg Rolls with a Horseradish Cheddar Dipping Sauce
8-10 egg roll wrappers
1 tbs olive oil
pinch of salt
1lbs shaved steak (or rare roast beef from the deli)
1 large green bell pepper sliced thin
1 large yellow onion sliced thin
1 clove minced garlic
2 tbs butter
2 tbs flour
3/4 a cup of heavy cream
8 oz Cabot Horseradish Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1/2 tsp salt
2 scallions sliced thin
*additional olive oil for brushing
In a medium fry pan heat olive oil over medium/high heat. Add in peppers and onions. Saute until the onions are translucent. Add in steak. Fry until the steak is cooked through. Mix in minced garlic and a pinch of salt. Set aside.
Lay egg roll wrappers out flat. Fill the centers with your steak filling (about 1/4-1/3 a cup. Fold ends in and roll your egg roll (most egg roll wrapper packages include a photo tutorial of how to roll)
Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet about 1 inch apart.
Brush egg rolls with olive oil. Bake at 400 for about 5-10 minutes flip over and continue baking for 5-10 additional minutes or until they are golden brown.
While the egg rolls are baking prepare you dipping sauce.
In a medium sauce pan melt butter, whisk in flour creating a paste. Cook over medium heat for approximately 2 minutes. Mix in cream slowly while constantly whisking. Bring mixture to a low boil. Mix in cheese, salt and scallions. Whisk until smooth. Pour into serving bowl.
Dip cooked egg rolls in your hot dip!
