Another Super Bowl Sunday, another big game without the Bears. It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since the McMahon-Payton-Hampton-Perry team that did the Super Bowl shuffle all the way to New Orleans. I was a high school senior in Naperville….I remember driving to pick up a friend at halftime to come back to a party with me and the streets were completely empty. That was such a great time in Chicago sports history.
Those days are long gone (in many ways). And even if the Bears aren’t playing, I know most of you will be hosting or attending a Super Bowl party next Sunday. Here are two potato-based recipes to try. I use Yukon Golds in both preparations; their creamy texture lends itself perfectly to both the soup and the potato skins filling. Yukon Golds can be found in most grocery stores in a variety of sizes.
The soup can be served in mini-shooters or in a slow-cooker with toppings on the side. And make plenty of potato skins, they go fast.
Enjoy and go…..Denver? Oh, who the hell cares.
