Emily Beier's Packers Party Chex Mix
4 cups Wheat Chex Cereal
4 cups Rice Chex Mix Cereal
4 cups Golden Grahams Cereal
1.5 cups dried cranberries
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup Karo syrup
3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups M&M's (obviously always better if you have JUST Green & Yellow ones!)
Mix all dry ingredients together in large bowl (excluding the sugar and M&Ms)
Heat the butter, Karo syrup and sugar in large pan over medium heat while stirring. Once all the sugar has dissolved let it boil until it becomes a frothy consistency.
Immediately pour over dry ingredients and mix.
Spread wax paper over 2 large cookie sheets and spread apart the mixture on the cookie sheets so that it doesn't clump (Although I LOVE the clumpy bites)
Let cool for about 10 minutes then sprinkle your M&M's in and ENJOY!
Megan Lowry's Buffalo Cauliflower
1/3 cup nonfat sour cream
2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
1 tablespoon skim milk
2 teaspoons mayonnaise
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup hot sauce, such as Frank's
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
8 cups cauliflower florets (from about 1 medium head)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
For the cheese sauce: Whisk together the sour cream, blue cheese, milk, mayonnaise, 1/8 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes
For the Buffalo cauliflower: Meanwhile, microwave the butter in a small microwave-safe bowl on high until melted. Whisk in the hot sauce and lemon juice and set aside.
Mix olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 cup water in a large bowl. Add the cauliflower and toss until well coated. Spread the cauliflower on a rimmed baking sheet and roast until beginning to brown and just tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Whisk the hot sauce mixture again, drizzle over the cauliflower and toss with tongs to coat. Roast the cauliflower until the sauce is bubbling and browned around the edges, 5 to 7 minutes more. Serve hot with the cheese sauce.
