Recipes for the Super Bowl Weekend… PAZAZ™ Style!

If you are a sports fan… specifically a “NINER” fan you’ve come to the right place. Having said that my parents were from Kansas so there is a part of me that enjoys seeing the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl… a very small part.

I grew up in the Bay Area and of course the football team I enjoyed the most, watched more than any other professional football team, was the “NINERS”. I went to quite a few games when I lived in the Bay Area (near San Francisco) when the “NINERS” played at Candlestick Park. The 80’s were a magical time for the 49ers with hall of fame inductees such as Joe Montana, Ronny Lott, Fred Dean, and of course the “GOAT”, Jerry Rice.

Did I mention they won four Super Bowls that decade?

So, here we are on the “Threshold of a Dream” as the “NINERS” seek to become one of only three franchises to win 6 Super Bowls. To compliment such an auspicious occasion I have created some fantastic recipes only available in this blog unless you order any of my AMAZING kitchen tools for the discerning chef (which includes the cookbook I wrote) from www.pazazshop.com.

This perfect recipe for your enjoyment is for the “RIDICULOUS” trio of barbecued burger sliders (Serves 4)
