What's up, guys! Hope you had a wonderful Masters Sunday. We all know Jordan Spieth didn't...ouch. One minute you are leading by a mile and 30 minutes later you've lost The Masters. Talk about a mental breakdown. I completely feel for him- that was super tough to watch so I can't imagine how he feels. Be sure to check out my good friend Lauren Abarca's breakdown of Spieth's breakdown and how she knows he will come back.
But on the flip side, huge congrats to Danny Willet. Considering his baby was due on Masters Sunday but came a week early, I'd say that's fate. His win was well-earned. This is why I love golf-it can be anyone's game at any moment.
I wanted to share with you what I made in order to throw the ultimate masters party and master being the #1 party host. In order to feel like we were at the masters as best we could, I made items from Augusta National's actual menu. Scroll for the recipes. You won't be disappointed!
Chicken Biscuit Sandwiches
Unfortunately I am no master chef. Fortunately, this recipe is so easy you don't have to be! Unfortunately I don't have a picture of these. Side note, I'm not sure what actually is on this, but I made my own version. And it is damn delicious. You'll need:
-Isernios Breakfasy Chicken Sausage Roll http://isernio.com/products/chicken-sausage-rolls/
-I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray
Preheat oven and follow directions on package to cook biscuits. While oven is preheating, create patties with the sausage roll. The easiest way is to freeze the roll for 30 minutes and then cut it into slices. Then, place patties in a lightly greased skillet over medium heat. Turn and cook until both sides are golden brown. While patties are cooking, scramble eggs. Once everything is cooked, spray biscuits with butter. If you're feeling sassy, add honey to one (or both!) sides of the biscuit. You can thank me later.
Breakfast drinks include mimosas and/or Azalea cocktails. What's an Azalea cocktail you ask? You're welcome: Azalea Cocktails
- 1 part Gin
- 1 part Pineapple juice
- Splash of Lime juice
- Splash of Lemon juice
- Splash of grenandine
Stir and enjoy :)
Don't forget your centerpiece! I found these fake Azalea look-alike flowers at Michael's but here are some actual magnolias you can order online at Michael's. For the golf balls you can use old ones rather than buy new ones. Or you can buy new golf balls and use them for the centerpiece then take them out to the course!
It wouldn't be a successful Masters party without Pimento Cheese Sandwiches or Sugar Cookie Peach Ice Cream Sandwiches! Be prepared for southern goodness. Is your mouth watering yet?
Pimento Cheese Sandwiches
- 4 oz Diced Pimentos
- 8 oz Kraft's Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
-Alfaro's Artesano style bread
- 1 cup Best Foods Mayonnaise
- Dash of Ground Black Pepper
- Dash of Ground Red Pepper
Mix pimentos, cheese, mayo, and peppers together in a bowl. Then put on one slice of bread, top with another slice of bread, and WHAM! Heavenly cheesy, fatty, peppery goodness.
Sugar Cookie Peach Ice Cream Sandwiches
Although the Pimento Cheese sandwiches are famous, these sandwiches almost top them!
Not only are they delicious, but super easy.
-Pillsbury Sugar Cookies (I bought the precut squares)
-Haagen Dazs Orchard Peach Sorbet
All I did was bake the cookies according to the directions on the package and put the ice cream in the middle of the cookies once they were cool. Next time, I'm doing this instead:
Take parchment paper and scoop ice cream onto the paper about cookie size 1 inch or so apart from each other and flatten them to desired thickness. Then place parchment paper over the ice cream and freeze for about an hour. While the ice cream is in the freezer, bake the cookies a little less time than what the packaging says so they stay soft. Then once cool, place the ice cream in the middle and vióla! You have a sugar cookie peach ice cream sandwich. If you are having a Masters party, this dessert is a must! Georgia peaches, hello! Or you can make Peach Cobbler. Personally, these cookie sandwiches were way better than peach cobbler! And my guests agreed 🙌
I also suggest to require (or encourage) guests to wear green or dress in costume. Caddy outfits are easy: green hat, white painters suit, and a number on the front of the painters suit. Easy peasy and fun!
Hope next year you can throw an amazing Masters party with these recipes and tips. Let's also pray Jordan Spieth has a better Masters next year as well!
