Sausage Blossoms

Bronco’s  vs Seahawks a SUPER showdown in New Jersey. The Meadowlands will host the Super Bowl this year and it will be full of surprises, not just football but weather. My favorite memory of The Meadowlands is watching my son as the starting guard in High School football at Giants Stadium. Great memory, but the weather in December was blowing, swirling snow and very cold, the only warm feeling was winning the State Championship. Trust me amazing stadium, but ask any fan it can be brutally cold.

Football is fun to watch no matter if you are attending the game or hanging out with friends watching the game at home. Our home will be hosting many football fans and food is as important as touchdowns. Sausage Blossoms are an easy make ahead dish, so you can enjoy the game too. My sister shared this sausage recipe years ago and it has never disappointed.  So for those of you planning on attending the game, dress warm it will be cold, but have a few Sausage Blossoms pre-game.
