“When your Super Bowl guests arrive, they should find a mound of potato chips large enough to conceal a pony sitting in front of the television. For nutritional balance, you should also put out a bowl of carrot sticks. If you have no carrot sticks, you can use pinecones, or used electrical fuses, because nobody will eat them anyway. This is no time for nutritional balance: This is the Super Bowl, for God's sake.” – Dave Barry

MARYLAND CRAB CAKES:

2 eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp Old Bay or Wye River
1/2 tsp ground white pepper (or black if you have it)
2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp dry mustard
1 lb lump crab meat (go through it with fingers to remove any shell)
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs (not the Italian)
3-4 tbs vegetable oil

In a mixing bow, combine eggs, mayonnaise, Old bay and pepper. Add Worcestershire sauce and mustard: whisk well until blended. Add crab meat and mix well. Stir in the bread crumbs. The trick here is to blend with your hands without crushing the crab.. it should be blended but the lumps of crab visible. Shape crab into 6 patties or 12 if you are making small appetizers.

In a large skillet.. heat to medium high heat. We always use our cast iron skillet. Add the vegetable oil and wait till hot. Place the patties into the pan and fry until browned (usually about 4-5 minutes on each side). Flip onto other side and brown the same way.

Baltimore drink of choice: Natty Bo. If you don’t drink alcohol, a half and half.

GO RAVENS!!

Each Marylander I know has their own recipe. I posted a general one for all those non-crab cake makers. I have seen verbal fights over Old Bay vs Wye River. I should probably post a Maryland crab soup recipe (or a she-crab soup) but I don’t want to start a Civil War. LOL!!

Looks like I’ll be doing Philly steaks (sliced rib eye) and wings. When I put that partially frozen hunk of rib eye on the slicer, I feel happy.

If only I could get Amaroso rolls in FL.

I do have a good, but complex wing sauce recipe that I developed over the years that I can post.

Better than the Thirsty Turtle wing sauce

My own concoction...

Ingredients:
1/2 lb.salted butter
24 oz. Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (no substitutions here. It has to be Frank’s)
1/4 cup minced garlic
1/4 cup minced sweet onion
1/4 cup minced jalapeno/habanero pepper
1/2 tlb. cayenne pepper
1/2 tlb. black pepper
1/2 tlb. white pepper
1/2 tlb. cumin
1.5 tlb. crushed red pepper
1 tlb. lemon juice
1/4 cup honey
3 tlbs. ketchup

Add butter and Red Hot Sauce to a saucepan over medium heat.
Stir in in all dry spices (cayenne, black, crushed red, white pepper & cumin) along with the garlic, onion, and jalapeno.
Simmer for 20 minutes
Drop heat to low.
Add lemon juice, ketchup, and honey.
Let that sit for about 10-15 minutes on low.
Put the saucepan in the fridge for about 4-6 hours.
Cut the butter fat out with a knife and discard.
You should be left with a very thick sauce underneath.
Re-heat and toss with deep fried wings

A lot of the heat cooks off in this recipe. I use a LOT of habaneros and it doesn’t come out that hot. I need to add a few drops of a designer hot sauce to make it hot.

Since I no longer have a horse in the race, I will offer my unbiased prediction. Ravens win.

Offense sells tickets, but defense wins championships.

It isn’t a Philly Steak if it isn’t on an Amaroso roll. Just an undeniable fact of life.

General Joe's Chicken:

Start with about two pounds of boneless chicken breasts.

Get one packet of McCormick Grill Mates Mesquite marinade mix and one jar of McCormick's Jamaican Jerk Seasoning (No, I don't work for, nor receive royalties from McCormick's.)

Cut the chicken into fingers, about 1" x 1" x 3-4".

Prepare the marinade with the manufacturer's instructions, and liberally add some McCormick Jamaican Jerk seasoning and a few dashes of Tobasco to taste. The instructions generically say to use "1/4 cup of oil." I've found that olive oil or peanut oil work better than regular vegetable oil.

Soak the chicken in the marinade (refrigerated) for about 24 hours, then prepare on a grill. I normally use a George Foreman and get terrific results as it seems to seal a lot of the moisture into the chicken by simultaneously grilling on both sides. An outdoor grill will do fine, but you're not really gaining anything since the mesquite already has a wonderful smokiness to it.

On a George Foreman it takes about 3-4 minutes, and your General Joe's chicken fingers are ready to go!

Crab Dip: serve w/crackers &/or raw veggies.

1 can of crab meat (get the one that says “claw meat”, tuna can size)any brand..
Drain the crab meat and add to cheese spread/dip, I get either Allouette or Boursin brand of their veggie cheese spread 5 or 6 oz size.
Mix it up and then add a little celery salt to taste...it’s best if you make it ahead and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours.
It is so easy...and yummy....enjoy!!!!!

OK, Libby, you asked for it (triple dog dare? Harrumph!)

Guacamole del Rey:

3 large avocados, ripe
3 medium/large cloves fresh garlic, or to taste, minced
1/2 Roma tomato, chopped fine
2 slices Bermuda onion, chopped fine (use yellow onion for more bite
1/4 cup chopped leaf cilantro (or parsley does nicely)
6-8 rashers bacon, trimmed of excess fat and chopped into Risk-sized pieces
1/2 tsp fresh ground cumin
salt, fresh ground pepper to taste (perhaps 1/8 tsp each)
juice of 1/2 Persian lime
optional: 8 slices Velveeta or equivalent

Cook bacon in skillet until done. Some like to overcook the bacon to make it crispy. Whatever works for you.

Seed the avocadoes and spoon the flesh into a bowl. Add tomato, onion, garlic, cilantro (chop this VERY finely, btw), cumin, salt and black pepper. Mix well with a fork (and ONLY a fork) until desired texture is reached (some like it chunkier than others do).

The Velveeta is OPTIONAL: if you don't like it, leave it out, and ignore the steps below that mention it.

Melt Velveeta in a saucepan. Assemble the dish as follows:

In another bowl, put down one layer of the guac, sprinkle lightly with lime juice, then add a layer of the velveeta. Repeat until nothing left to add (typically 2-3 layers of guac/Velveeta).

Some like to squeeze a bit more lime juice on top right now, to prevent the colour from turning when heated. Your choice; I simply don't care. Put oven on lowest setting of warm (no hotter!). Place bowl into oven until ready to serve. Serve warm with chips or 'party' rye bread.

If you like more tomato and onion, add it -- what the heck. I'm a cumin freak, and I use quite a bit more cumin than specified. This is a VERY adjustable recipe.

Happy SuperBowling (or however that goes...)

...nyah, nyah, Libby...

;^)

We have been making these for years, very similar to your recipe. Very easy, convenient and the kids always loved them. My daughter always wanted to make them for her sleep-overs and birthday parties. We use pepperoni, mushrooms, onion, peppers, black olives. What ever toppings you want. They’re fun to make, too.

Believe it or not, the Baltimore fans are very well behaved, fun loving tailgaters. The verbal fights I have witnessed are from white haired older gals that have been making crab cakes since “before you were born”. I went to a July 4th party at the shore... and did I get an earful. “Don’t even try Mildred’s crab cakes.. she uses that fertilizer called Wye River”. Of course, Mildred comes back... “Gloria wouldn’t know a good crab cake if it slapped her in her face’. Needless to say... I made up some quick LIE about crab breaking me out in hives. I’m no dummy.. if I tried both, I would have had to say which one was better. No way, no how!

If a recipe for wings calls for a 12 oz bottle of "amber beer", which beer would you use?

My wife tried quoting me Martha Stewart about carmelizatipn and flavor, and I was trying to tell her, yes, but amber ale, bock or lager all all going to affect the flavor more. And no beer is labeled "amber" and most of the bottles are dark in color so you can't really tell if you aren't a regular drinker (which outside of summer ball games and an occasional Irish pub, I'm not).

Crusty Italian Bread

1 package (2 teaspoons) active dry yeast
4 cups warm water (105-115°)
3 cups bread flour or all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil cornmeal for dusting

Combine yeast, water, 1 teaspoon of sugar and 1 cup of flour in mixing bowl. Allow to rest for 10 minutes until the yeast starts bubbling and giving off a “yeasty” smell.

Add the remaining flour, sugar and salt and mix until the flour is incorporated. Add the olive oil and knead for 10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and satiny.

Place the dough in an oiled bowl, coating the dough all around with the oil. Cover with plastic wrap or a wet tea towel and place in a warm spot until the dough has doubled in volume — 45 minutes to an hour or more, depending on temperature.

Punch down the dough, roll into desired loaf shape, cover with plastic again and allow to rise until doubled in volume.

Place a bowl of water in the stove and pre-heat to 425°. Turn down to 400 when you put the bread in. Bake 20-30 minutes, depending on shape of loaves. Bread is finished when it makes a hollow sound when you thump on the bottom with your thumb.
