So, with football season here, I thought it only appropriate to add some football party foods. AND I've been a total slacker "cooker" these days, therefore I've also been slack on my more regular postings and frankly I've felt kinda bad about that! The next 3 recipes are definitely favorites! The meatballs and the crackers we share with the whole family, but we save the beer cheese dip just for the adults, even though I think that most of the alcohol cooks off I just feel funny about feeding my children "beer cheese dip". Hope you all enjoy!!!
1 round pumpernickel loaf
1 8 oz pkg. cream cheese
1 8 oz pkg. velvetta
1/2 can light beer
1 clove garlic, pressed or minced OR use 1t garlic powder
Bring beer to a boil on stove-top. Add garlic and mix thoroughly, whisking if necessary (especially when using garlic powder).
Then, add cheeses and melt on LOW until smooth.
Cut out the center of the loaf and cut into pieces
Pour cheese in center immediately before serving, no sooner.
Store remaining cheese mixture in container in refrigerator.
