Cheddar Onion Ciabatta Appetizer #Super Bowl #SundaySupper

You all know how crazy we are about football in this house!  We love it, live it… we are a true football family.  As I write this post, my boys are getting ready for 8 on 8 Spring Football because playing just in the fall, JUST wouldn’t be enough.  As you can imagine, Super Bowl Sunday is like a National Holiday around here.  For me, the best part is the Appetizers!  I seriously could live on appetizers.  Our Super Bowl favorites are Pepperoni Pizza Dip, Skinny Chicken Bacon Bites, Apple Almond Baked Brie, Tomato and Mozzarella Appetizer.  This year, we are adding a new Super Bowl Sunday Appetizer to our menu, Onion Cheddar Ciabatta Appetizer!  It is so easy and it out of this world!

Cheese Appetizers are one of my favorites. I wished I could enjoy a sports holiday like how you have described. It sounds pretty fun!

Oh, how easy and yummy! Anything topped with cheese is fine in my book!


Renee February 3, 2013 at 2:17 pm

I’m thinking this would be perfect with a glass of wine. What appetizer goodness!


Shea @ Dixie Chik Cooks February 3, 2013 at 2:44 pm

I don’t think I would want to share ;) Looks delicious!


arlene @flouronmyface February 3, 2013 at 2:52 pm

Isabel this looks so good. I love Vidalia onions. We lived in Vidalia,GA for 4 years. I can’t wait to make this!


Bea February 3, 2013 at 3:15 pm

Now this is the perfect, delicious and easy party dish! Love it!

Oh, YUMness! I simply must make this bread. It looks easy and I know my crowd would love it.


Lyn @LovelyPantry February 3, 2013 at 4:40 pm

Well hello! All of my favourite ingredients!!! I’m saving this one.


Katy February 3, 2013 at 5:16 pm

I’m really enjoying learning about Superbowl traditions today -it sounds like a lot of fun in your house! Cheese and onion ciabatta must be the perfect appetizer!


Sarah Reid, RHNC (@jo_jo_ba) February 3, 2013 at 8:02 pm

LOVE onion bread


Susan 30A EATS February 3, 2013 at 8:05 pm

There would be none left if I was first in line! Beautiful and know it must be delectable! Thanks for sharing! See you at the #SuperBowl #SundaySupper!


Kim Bee February 3, 2013 at 9:14 pm

Now this is one of those dishes where you could just shovel it right into my mouth and I’d be a happy girl.


Jenne February 3, 2013 at 11:35 pm

So simple and it looks delicious!


Megan - I Run For Wine February 4, 2013 at 8:31 am

Isabel, this is beautiful and delicious! LOVE IT!


Lane @ Supper for a Steal February 4, 2013 at 10:37 am

OMG I am obsessed with ciabatta! Like I could eat it at every meal obsessed. I may or may not be making this for myself for lunch today….


Sarah | Curious Cuisiniere February 4, 2013 at 10:37 am

Yum! This looks so tasty!


Anne @ Webicurean February 4, 2013 at 12:16 pm

yah, I’d probably want to eat the whole thing. What always amazes me is how versatile mayonnaise is–I’m not really a big fan, yet I find you can mix it with just about anything, pop it in the oven for a bit, and out comes deliciousness! It’s like a miracle food


Nancy @ gottagetbaked February 4, 2013 at 12:51 pm

I love this, Isabel! So easy but so amazingly delicious. All those flavours must be incredible together. I hope you and your family had a fun, tasty Superbowl Sunday!


Soni February 4, 2013 at 3:12 pm

Oh I just love this!!So super easy and kid friendly too!I cannot wait to try this at my home :)


Sunithi February 4, 2013 at 5:07 pm

OOh, these look and sound so good. A mix of cheese and onion on bread would be a win with my kids. Much better than the cheese sticks you get at Pizza hut ! Lovely Isabel, trying it !


Wendy (The Weekend Gourmet) February 4, 2013 at 6:52 pm

I might grab a plate of this and go hide in the corner…too good to share! I think this would be good with a simple pasta dish too. I must make very soon, Isabel!


Brianne @ Cupcakes & Kale Chips February 4, 2013 at 8:55 pm

Mmm, Isabel, this sounds yummy, but I am wondering – since the onions are copped so fine, do they get fully cooked? I don’t like raw onion flavor, but if they get cooked through, this sounds like a fabulous, easy appetizer.


Cindy February 4, 2013 at 11:03 pm

This sounds so good Isabel!


Stacy February 6, 2013 at 9:45 am

Onion and mayo and cheese, oh, my! This sounds just perfect any day, forget game day! Just look at that melting cheese and crispy bottom. Yum!


Laura | Small Wallet, Big Appetite February 10, 2013 at 2:12 am

What a great simple bread appetizer. I love cheese and onion.
