Game Day Favorites

Procrastinated all week and still don’t know what you’re serving for tonight’s game? Hey, it happens to the best of us! There’s still time to make some of my game day favorites.

Feeling cheesy? Try some Ooey, Gooey, Cheesy Quesadillas with Tangy Dipping Sauce:

Or how about some Five Layer Dip?

Or maybe some Game Day Chili? (Here’s a secret…you don’t even have to serve the chili in a bowl! It tastes great on burgers and hot dogs, too!)

Perhaps you’re craving a juicy burger? Try these Green Chile Chicken Cheeseburgers:

And finally, my Pulled Pork and Habanero Cheese Panini:

Enjoy today’s game!

A Great Use of Leftovers: Pulled Pork Panini

I love it when a delicious dish can be morphed into even more delicious leftovers. Earlier this week I slow-cooked some Mango, Ginger, and Habanero Pulled Pork. It’s one of my favorite slow-cooker dishes and the leftovers make a great panini. Slather some Dijon mustard onto some plain white bread, pile on some pork, then top with Cabot’s Habanero Cheddar Cheese, and you’ve got yourself one heck of a satisfying sandwich.

Pulled Pork and Habanero Cheese Panini

A Butcher’s Daughter Original

What You’ll Need:

1 cup Mango, Ginger, and Habanero Pulled Pork
1/3 cup shredded habanero cheddar cheese (Recommended: Cabot’s Habanero Cheddar Cheese)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 slices white bread
olive oil cooking spray

Preheat your panini press to medium-high heat.

Spread the Dijon mustard onto both slices of bread. Pile the pulled pork onto one slice of bread, then sprinkle the cheese evenly over the shredded pork. Top with the second slice of bread.

Spray your panini press with the cooking spray, then place your sandwich onto the press. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted. Enjoy!
