Horse-racing lovers out there always watch out for the Kentucky Derby. An annual horse race that is held annually in Louisville, Kentucky, United States, on the first Saturday in May, capping the two-week-long Kentucky Derby Festival.
If Super Bowl was not the only the most-anticipated event, the Kentucky Derby is also grand. Lots of celebrities and personalities everywhere too.
People elsewhere sit back and watch it on television. It’s not enough though. You got to have something to munch your way while enjoying the derby. If you’re reading this, you’ve come to the right place as here are seven of our recommended recipes you can prepare:
Good for an appetizer in any parties! This Benedictine spread with cucumber can be used as a dip or a sandwich and canape topping. It was created by Jennie Carter Benedict, a cookbook author, caterer, and restaurateur.
It’s a simple combination of cucumber, onion, cream cheese, and simple seasonings, and it is an excellent appetizer to serve a Kentucky Derby gathering. Serve it along with crackers or vegetables as a dip, or use it as a spread for tea sandwiches. If too thick, add a small amount of cream or sour cream, or add some extra grated cucumber.
Vegan-friendly salads also tastes refreshingly great especially for employees who do overtime a lot. Try this one out. Look for tender, fresh baby greens and microgreens at your local farmers’ market; they should be abundant this time of year. Soaking vegetables in ice water crisps them up.
These luscious little Bourbon Meatballs are going to be the hit of your next cocktail party ~ people will flock to the meatballs, but they’ll hang around for the sauce!!
These bite-sized appetizers are a treat! Caramelized onions create another layer of flavor. You can make the cheese and onions three to five days in advance; they store well. If you need to save time, you can use premade jalapeno pimiento cheese.
Go Bluegrass on the grill with this Bourbon-Marinated Pork Tenderloin recipe. The bourbon mixed with soy sauce and spices adds flavor and tenderizes the meat.
People say, “Wow!” when they taste these flavorful tangy deviled eggs. The bold combination of ground mustard, dill and horseradish is so appealing. The plate is always emptied whenever I serve these eggs.
One carefree way to serve these cuties is to slice the tenderloins on a large cutting board, set out fresh rolls and homemade condiments, and let guests build their own sandwiches.
