Our Top 7 Game Day Recipes
We’ve rounded up our top seven Super Bowl recipes to make your party as memorable as the game. From juicy hot wings to the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich and a refreshing beer cocktail, we’ve got your game day covered.
Spicy jalapenos and tequila give Chef Rick Bayless’s cheesy, gooey dip an extra kick. Serve with crispy, warm tortilla chips for a delicious game-day snack.
Grillmaster Russ says this recipe is always a crowd pleaser. A quick brining in buttermilk and hot sauce yields tender meat that’s both tangy and smooth in flavor. The chile rub finishes the wings off with a perfect, moderately spicy crust.
Smoky bacon, melted cheese and grilled bread are the ultimate comfort foods. This sandwich combines the bold kick of Gruyere cheese, with the soft, rich flavor of crème fraiche. Add freshly chopped chives and crusty sour dough bread and you’ve got yourself a winner.
Good nachos are to game day what pig skin is to football: essential. A delicious combination of crispy tortilla chips, succulent, beer-braised pork, creamy guacamole and fresh pico de gallo topped with melted cheese make these nachos from Bon Appetit magazine a game day must.
A mixture of chorizo and Italian sausage are the secret to this pizza. The raw tomato sauce and red onion taste light and fresh against the decadent flavors of the sausage and cheese.
Beer cocktails are easy and different. Sweet, spicy ginger mixes perfectly with tart lemon juice for a refreshing drink. We like to use Bell’s Lager as a nod to our Michigan heritage but feel free to substitute this for your favorite local beer.
Here’s a new take on an old favorite: a Bloody Mary that uses beer, a combination of citrus juices, and tequila. This comes from our friend, Chef Rick Bayless by way of Saveur Magazine.
