Super Quick For Super Bowl

Still looking for ideas for Sunday’s Super Bowl showdown party? Here are a couple of dips that look to be pretty simple to throw together on short notice.

Slow-Cooker Spinach Dip

In a slow cooker pot, combine 1 cup grated smoked mozzarella cheese, ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese, 8 ounces cream cheese, 1 minced garlic clove, 1 box thawed (and thoroughly drained) frozen spinach and 1 jar artichoke hearts.

Cover and cook on high for 2 hours. Serve with hearty crackers, crostini or chunks of French or Italian bread.

Bacon-Roasted Garlic Dip

Cut the tops of 2 whole heads of garlic; drizzle with olive oil, wrap in foil and bake in 400 degree oven for 45 minutes.

Combine roasted garlic with 1½ cups sour cream, ¾ cup mayonnaise, ¼ cup chopped green onions. 6 slices bacon, cooked to a crisp and crumbled, a dash of Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with crackers or crostini.
