Sunday Snax

Last weekend, the LPGA golf tournament was held right here in upstate NY. My husband and several of his friends attended last Sunday and the guys came back to our house for some delicious snacks and to watch some MORE golf on TV. Here is what I served:

Becky's Sunday Snax Menu

Shrimp cocktail with spicy cocktail sauce
Mrs. Murphy’s cream cheese and beef dip
Hamburger sliders with all the trimmings
Marinated chicken on skewers

Here are two of the recipes:

Marinated Chicken on Skewers

Marinade: Combine together ½ c. soy sauce, ½ c. oil, 2 green onions, chopped, 1 tbs. brown sugar, 1 clove garlic, minced, 1 tsp. vinegar.

Cut two or three chicken breasts into strips. Marinate the chicken for 45 minutes to 4 hours, depending on how much time you have. Thread meat on small skewers.

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Arrange skewers on foil lined baking sheet (if you don’t line the sheet, be prepared for a big mess later) and bake for 10 minutes. Flip skewers and baste with reserved marinade. Bake about 5 more minutes until golden brown and cooked through.

This recipe is one of my favorites, I also serve it as a dinner dish with chunks of chicken breast and pineapple slices.

Mini Burger Sliders

Combine 1 lb. of 80/20 ground beef and 1 lb. of 90/10 ground beef so you get some nice flavor from the fat while still keeping it leanish. This amount of meet will make a lot of sliders so you can cut it in half if you’d like. Add 1 tsb. olive oil and 1/3 c. shredded cheddar cheese, pepper and seasoning salt. Form into 12 golf ball sized rounds. Flatten slightly. Grill (indoors or out) or just fry in a pan until cooked through. Serve on toasted slider buns (available at so many grocery stores now) with pickle slices, mustard and catsup and tiny thin slices of tomato and onion. I also will use a special mayo I make with lemon juice, parsley and a bit of garlic salt for a different twist. Top with bun half and serve!!
