Ole Miss Tailgate Party

After we set the table yesterday, the party started!!! My Roast Beef Jalapeno Cheese Biscuits were on the menu.

 Along with some cocktail wienies. What party is not complete without cocktail wienies.  But my Colonel Rebel dish is one of my favorites.

 No Ole Miss party is complete without him coming to it.


The obligatory vegetable platter. But the real star of the party was the Spinach Artichoke Dip.

 The Boursin cheese made this dish spectacular.

Saute shallots and garlic in butter over medium heat. Add the spinach and artichokes. I cut up the artichokes into much smaller pieces. Cook on low and after several minutes, add cream, Boursin cheese, salt and pepper. Stir gently and continue to cook until all the cheese is melted. Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.

Put into a well greased baking dish. Top with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake at 300 degrees for 20 to 30 minutes until the top browns slightly. Serve with tortilla chips, pita chips or crackers.
