Super Bowl Party (Football Parties) ~ Appetizers

Mini Football Subs
You can expect a high number of interceptions when you pass these individual-size meatball sandwiches during halftime festivities.What you’ll need:
Spaghetti sauce
Shredded Cheese
Individual-size rolls
To make a batch, first prepare your favorite meatball recipe, shaping each meatball into a mini football before cooking. Once they’re cooked, add the meatballs to a skillet of spaghetti sauce and warm them through. For each sub, cut a V-shaped notch from the top of an individual-size roll, place a meatball in the roll, and top with cheese shred laces. Finally, get the sandwiches in a huddle on a cookie sheet and place them in a warm oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese.

Down…Set…7-Layer DIP!
This fun Football 7 Layer Dip is fun food!What you need: (layering)
lettuce on the bottom
shredded cheese
sour cream
refried beans (mixed with a package of taco seasoning)
Pipe the sour cream on the top to make the laces.Use a football bowl, or you could just use a round plate and shape a football on that. Just put the shredded lettuce around it and that would look just as good!

1/2 cup mayonnaise $
3 tablespoons mango chutney
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
Kosher salt to taste

Touchdown Meatloaf
What you need:
1 pound ground beef
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon salt
1 small zucchini, finely grated
Ketchup, for decoration
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 large white onion, for decoration
1 egg
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a baking sheet. Using your hands, combine all ingredients except ketchup and white onion in a large bowl and mix well. Place the mixture on the baking sheet and mold it into a football shape, making sure to pat down the middle so it’s no thicker than the edges. Bake 50 to 60 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees F. Remove the meatloaf from the oven and spoon a few tablespoons ketchup in the center to make a base for the football’s “laces.” Slice a thick ring from the center of the white onion, peel off a strand to form the anchor of the lacing and lay the piece over the ketchup. Then cut shorter pieces of white onion to make the lacing’s crosshatches. Serve warm or at room temperature.
