Pittsburgh against Green Bay. Steelers against Packers. Terrible Towels against Cheeseheads…One of the biggest sporting events in the world, this years is billed to be one of the best games of all time. And it’s only fair to get a load of friends over, beers in the cooler, with lots of easy food.
So what have we got on the cards?
Melted Cheese, Jalapenos, a small amount of Chopped Tomatoes, Sour Cream and Guacamole, this dish is a great favourite at any party.
Lay half of the Nachos out on an Ovenproof dish, sprinkle with some Cheese, then lay some Tomatoes, Jalapenos, Sour Cream and Guacamole on top. Lay the rest of the Nachos on top, followed by the rest of the toppings, and place under a medium heated grill until Golden Brown, and the Cheese has melted.
Using the bases mentioned here, you can easily change the toppings – try some Beef and Jalapenos, Three Cheeses, and some Chicken and Sweetcorn toppings for them.
Follow the instructions for the Pizza Bases, and place the toppings on before returning to the oven for the final sessions, to allow them to cook and crisp over.
Southern Fried Chicken
This recipe is a personal favourite. You can use different cuts of Chicken to make sure that you have a lot of these, or you may miss the third and fourth quarter making more!
These are great hot or cold, so if you don’t have a series of fryers, or someone specially in to cook, it may be worth serving them cold!
Nothing says Beer Snack, like a traditional Pretzel! And flavour these with some different spices and flavourings – Cinnamon, Salt or Garlic are all good flavourings that can go well on this snack.
Big Baskets of these – not even in the traditional shapes, but in any pattern – go down VERY well.
Above all – if you’re going out, have a game plan – don’t drink and drive, have a designated driver, or take a cab!
