Slow Cooker Buffalo WingsBy Ginny's TeamThere's no better way to feed a hungry crowd at a Super Bowl party than with slow cooker buffalo wings! Deep frying can be messy and time-consuming; putting buffalo wings in the slow cooker is a hands-off way to make juicy, delicious wings. The meat will practically fall off the bone after spending a few hours in the slow cooker. Just make sure to have lots of napkins on hand for your guests! The best slow cooker buffalo wings are as messy as they are tasty.
Beer-Battered Onion RingsBy Ginny's TeamWelcome in the summer and delight your guests at barbecues and parties with homemade beer-battered onion rings! Serve them as an appetizer before a barbecue, as a side to delicious burgers, or even on top of a juicy steak. It's important for your onions to be sweet, since the right onion will really improve the taste of the onion rings. You can slice them as thick or as thin as you'd like; it's all about personal preference. The same rule goes for the cup of beer the recipes calls for. Just use your preferred brew! These beer-battered onion rings are so tasty that you'll have to make sure to set enough aside for yourself before you let your guests try them, or they'll be gone before you know it.
Reuben RollsBy Ginny's TeamReuben rolls made with sauerkraut is a great way to use up leftovers. Have leftover cabbage? Make a quick sauerkraut by chopping the cabbage finely, sautéing until wilted, and then tossing with the following ingredients: two tablespoons cider vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/4 teaspoon of brown sugar, and a sprinkle of dried mustard. Reuben rolls also use corned beef, potatoes, and onions--all staples that can find a great second life as delicious leftovers! The other key to this reuben rolls recipe? An easy to use deep fryer! You'll want to heat yours to 375°F for a delicious deep fry. Reuben Roll upgrade tip: Looking for a little extra crisp in these tasty rolls? Add tortilla or wonton strips in the mix for some added crunch.
Taco PinwheelsBy Ginny's TeamThis taco pinwheels recipe was inspired by Gloria G. from Newark, CA. and is a fun twist on a classic party dish. All you need is a blender, a few easy-to-find ingredients, and about fifteen minutes of preparation time. The cheese mixture has a perfect pop of taco seasoning, chilies, and jalapeños, while the tortillas make this appetizer an easy finger food! We love taco pinwheels for Super Bowl watch parties, birthday celebrations, and more.
Pizza TacosBy Ginny's TeamPizza and tacos are both perfect comfort foods; combine them in a big way with these pizza tacos. You just need four main ingredients, a few favorite toppings, and a skillet with a cover to make this delicious dish. Use pepperoni, or use sausage, mushrooms, olives, vegetables or more for toppings--just raid your pantry and vegetable drawer! Another bonus? These pizza tacos only take a few minutes to make, so they're easy to cook whenever your're in the mood for a feel good classic.
Asian Chicken WingsBy Ginny's TeamTry Asian chicken wings in a slow cooker for a delicious yet hands-off Superbowl side. The wide variety of ingredients creates an explosion of flavor, while soy sauce, Sriracha sauce, and sesame seeds gives the recipe a distinctly Asian twist. Instead of worrying about baking or frying, simply add everything to a slow cooker and let the chicken wings soak in flavor for hours. The meat will practically fall off the bone of these Asian chicken wings!
Microwave QuesadillaBy Ginny's TeamThe moral of this simple quesadilla recipe: deliciousness in less than 60 seconds is possible. All you need are two tortillas and some shredded cheese to make this delicious quesadilla recipe!
Crab Rangoon RecipeBy Ginny's TeamLaura, our customer service representative at the Ginny's House, shared her husband's Homemade Crab Rangoon recipe. We have used it a couple of different times to test deep fryers and convection ovens and they are always delicious. They're especially good with sweet and sour sauce. If you can't find a sweet and sour sauce you like, try warming up red pepper jelly for a great, simple substitute! This is one of Laura's family favorites. It's no longer an "ancient Chinese secret," you can now enjoy these any night of the week!
Potato Chips in the Deep FryerBy Ginny's TeamEveryone here at the Ginny’s House really likes food. A lot. Even though we may whine a little bit when there is so much food from recipe and product testing, we complain a lot more when there isn't food (especially chocolate) around. We also like testing our products and recipes to make sure they are the best they can possibly be before putting them in our catalog. We also learn how we can describe the items to you so you know exactly what you're getting! Last week was no different. We were testing a new fryer and our Ginny’s Brand Double Deep Fryer to see how the new fryer stacked up, and to learn the benefits of the potentially new fryer we were thinking about for our next catalog. Everyone was lined up at the kitchen counter patiently waiting for whatever Laura was pulling out of the Ginny’s Brand Double Deep Fryer next. The Crab Rangoon, Homemade Potato Chips, and Chicken were all fried to a perfect golden brown in the Ginny’s Brand Double Deep Fryer. We especially liked our new Homemade Potato Chip recipe that Laura made with our Ginny’s Brand Kitchen Assistant!
Traditional Wisconsin Deep Fried Cheese CurdsBy Ginny's TeamWisconsin is known for beer, brats, and of course cheese. We even have a festival every two years called Cheese Days, where around 100,000 people flood the downtown area of Monroe, Wisconsin. The whole town (normally with a population of around 10,000) spends the off year planning and preparing for the next big celebration. Among a list of popular Cheese Days traditions, are Cheese Curds. Festival goers will wait in line for hours to get their hands on a cup of warm, battered, fried, and melty cheese. While dreaming of the upcoming Cheese Days and Curds, we realized that not everyone has the chance to make the trip to Monroe for Cheese Days to get their fill of the popular Wisconsin treat. We knew we had to do something to share such a memorable tradition with our Ginny's family and the rest of the country! So we found a beer batter recipe, and did our best to replicate the Wisconsin Delicacy.
Grilled Bacon Jalapeño PoppersBy Ginny's TeamPrepare the perfect party food with grilled bacon jalapeño poppers! Only seven ingredients and only eight minutes of grilling means you can feed a crowd without losing any time. Bacon and cheddar cheese are a sure crowd pleaser, while cream cheese and green onions add a complex taste to these delicious party treats. Don't forget to avoid touching your eyes when preparing the grilled bacon jalapeño peppers; you don't want to get any pepper juice in your eye! Grilled bacon jalapeño poppers are a great choice for spring barbecues or backyard parties. You'll be surprised at how fast they disappear off the plate!
