With the Big Game about to kick off in Big D, you need party food ideas. It’s time to put on your game face and cook up some Super snacks.
We’ve gathered some tantalizing recipes for the big event from some of the top restaurant chefs in the U.S., courtesy of Plate magazine and the chic Bar Novo at the Renaissance Chicago Hotel.
From Executive Chef Brian McBride of the Blue Duck Tavern in our nation’s capital comes a hot recipe for Bacon Popcorn.
Looking for something spicy for the fans? Try the Ham and Cheddar Pretzel Bites with Jalapeño Mustard from Chef-Owner Edward Lee of the Louisville, Ky., restaurant 610 Magnolia.
Chef Roy Choi from the famous Korean gourmet food truck Kogi BBQ in Los Angeles chips in with a Blackjack Quesadilla recipe that’s sure to score points.
“Making memorable dishes doesn’t have to mean spending the entire day in the kitchen,” says Bar Novo Executive Chef James Samson, who offers up some classic munchies with a gourmet twist. “These bites pack big punches of flavor,” Chef Samson says, “but they are easy enough that they won’t keep you away from watching the game.”
Bar Novo’s “Truffalo” Wings are made with savory honey and truffle glaze. They’re served with a decadent truffle ranch sauce for dipping.
Chef Samson’s Mini Cuban Sandwiches are piled-high with braised pork, havarti cheese and mini pepper rings.
If you’re ready to tackle it, you’ll find the Pork Belly Grilled Cheese is definitely not your average grilled cheese sandwich. It’s topped with creamy havarti and an apple and sweet onion marmalade.
And the chef’s crunchy Guinness Onion Rings will be cheered by Steelers fans, Packers fans, and especially foodie fans.
