Game Day Snacks: Kosher Stuffed Potato Skins


The perfect Superbowl snack doesn’t need to be meat – there are also some great dairy options for your game day noshing.

Loaded potato skins are a bar favorite, but they are almost always topped with bacon, and so off limits at least for this kosher-style eater. My version packs a “meaty” and satisfying punch by adding veggie chili instead of actual meat. This recipe is inspired by Rachel Ray’s version of Sinfully Stuffed Potato Skins.

Ingredients

  • 20 small to medium sized yukon gold potatoes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup vegetarian chili
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 scallions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped jalapenos

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Pierce the potatoes with a fork and roast on a baking sheet for around 40 to 45 minutes, or until fork tender. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

Halve the potatoes and scoop out most of the flesh into a bowl. Return the potato skins to the baking sheet. Mash the potato flesh in the bowl and stir in 1 cup of cheese, sour cream, and veggie chili. Sprinkle the insides of the skins with 1/2 teaspoon salt and stuff each with the potato-cheese mixture. Sprinkle tops of the potatoes with the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.

Bake the stuffed potato skins until golden-brown on top, around 15 to 20 minutes.

Sprinkle with scallions and jalapenos and serve with an extra dollop of sour cream.

Game Day Snacks: Chicken Wings Two Ways

Yield:
2 dozen wings


It seems we are in the final month of American Football season, concluding with the SuperBowl in a few weeks. Confession: I know absolutely nothing about football, and I am just fine with that. But I do love traditional Sunday football “fare,” and so for the next few weeks I’ll be providing my husband’s favorite recipes that go along with good game watching

Up first: my fried chicken wings, two ways.

If you don’t have a proper deep fryer, of course you can bake the chicken wings before saucing them. You can also fill a large pot with oil and use that for frying.

Traditional-Style Hot Wings

  • vegetable oil for frying
  • 2 dozen chicken wings
  • 3/4 cup pareve margarine or butter flavored shortening
  • 3/4 hot sauce of your choice
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp black pepper
  • celery sticks for garnish

Rinse chicken wings in cold water, and pat dry thoroughly.

In a deep fryer or large pot, heat oil to 375 degrees. Fry wings in oil for approximately 12-15 minutes, until just crispy.

Meanwhile, heat margarine and hot sauce in a saucepan on medium heat. Whisk until heated through and smooth. Pour sauce into a large mixing bowl, add salt and pepper.

When wings are done, add wings to large bowl and toss to sauce. Add celery sticks for garnish, and serve.

  • 3 scallions, chopped (green and white parts)

Directions

Rinse chicken wings in cold water, and pat dry thoroughly.
