Roasted Jalapeño Cream Cheese Bites

It’s the coldest it has been here in over two years.  Also, Superbowl season is upon us.  What does all of this add up to?  Hot and spicy bite-sized game day food, of course!

I need a lot of flavor when it gets this cold out and football just compliments that fact beautifully, making it that much easier to add enormously robust flavors to everything I cook.  Game day food means comfort, heat and easy to eat.  I will be bringing you a few of my personal favorites (all vegetarian, naturally) for such an occasion, starting with these roasted jalapeño cream cheese bites.

This particular little appetizer is my garlic rosemary parmesan flatbread topped with a drizzle of chive oil, piped cream cheese (seasoned lightly with salt and pepper) and chopped roasted jalapeño peppers; herb toppings optional.  It’s a play on a jalapeño popper without any frying or breading messiness to deal with.

It’s only five ingredients, it’s easy to assemble and has an alluringly addictive piquant punch.  It’s the perfect bite to kick off any Superbowl party.
