Picture time: Super Bowl Feast buffet

Thursday, March 07, 2013

Not as late as last time, at least!

I host a Super Bowl party every single year. This year's the first time I've ever done it in Germany- plus the first time I had hot dogs on the menu. They aren't pictured, though.

This burger is a foot in diameter. We had three of them in total. The bowls contain different dips (guacamole, pico de gallo, a French vinaigrette, herbed Quark [sort of like Greek yogurt]).

Double-baked potatoes, deviled eggs, stuffed eggplant and zucchini, some mini salmon burger patties

Deviled eggs

Mini salmon burger patties and whole-grain-and-herb "pancakes"

Vegetarian stuffed eggplant and zucchini- I'll try to write down the recipe one of these days... It was super delicious!

Dessert section. The wine glasses contain guava, raspberry and apricot puree and home-made sugar-free applesauce to go with the orange and lemon mousses. The white bowl contains filleted oranges.

I found gold food spray paint to spray paint my red orange and cranberry cupcakes with!

Orange and lemon mousses. The black on top is the vanilla that unfortunately went to the bottom of my bundt mold.

From top to bottom: red wine cake and cognac torte. The lemon on the right side is a small Amalfi lemon (I used most of the skin on the lower side in my lemon mousse).

Sparkly purple food coloring. Whee! The oreo cake is a little misshapen because I didn't have enough Pam left to cover the entire baking pan :(

Bonus: Tarte au citron meringuée I made today- birthday cake for my friend whose birthday is tomorrow :)

    They probably had little interest in the game with this buffet! You appear to be a professional chef too.

    LOL... I don't think anyone was thinking about their diet that night. We stayed awake until well past 6am (time shift). That said, everything is either miniature (like the cupcakes, they were bite-sized) or not that heavy (even the burger patty- it's lean ground beef, glazed onions and some panko and was quickly browned without added oil or fat in a pan, then finished off at low temperature in the oven).

    Portion control... well, I'm not the master of anybody's body but mine. I didn't blow my calorie budget that night, despite sampling some of everything :) I had so much fun cooking/preparing that I didn't want to eat a lot anymore.

    This buffet fed more than 25 people all in all, too, most of them men. I was worried at one point there wouldn't be enough for everybody!
