5 Super Bowl Recipe Fixes

Crockpot Chicken Wings

I’m pretty proud of the fact that I can count the number of super bowls I’ve watched on one hand. I hate football with a passion. During high school I was part of my school’s color guard. We were pretty good. Ramsey High School was much better known for Big Blue, its band and guard, than it was for any of its sports team. We competed on weekends all over the northeast, but Saturday mornings were our dress rehearsals, halftime at the high school football games. For four years I was forced to watch football. As soon as I could escape I did.

In college, my girlfriends and I initiated Black Dress Night. We all had an equal distaste for the game, so while many of our friends gathered in dorm rooms with nachos, huddled around whoever’s 13″ TV, we donned our little black dresses and dined in protest.Those nights were some of my best memories from college and one of the things I miss most. The tradition continued for a few years post college, but sadly as families started and friends moved further, it became hard for us all to get together in a single city on a Sunday night.

I’m not sure what Super Bowl Sunday will hold for me this year. Most likely, binge watching Top Chef or something of the like. But just because I don’t participate in the event, doesn’t mean I don’t think about the food. Even for the most insignificant of holidays (National Peanut Butter Day anyone?) I find reason to celebrate and cook. Here are my top five Super Bowl recipes fit for a crowd. Hopefully one or two will make the cut for your game night menu.

  1. I plan on super bowl food while I’m watching Downton Abbey. Love your lineup!! Those pulled pork sliders bring back lovely memories.

    • I know. I did another pulled pork the other day with a whole30 compliant rub (i.e nothing sweet). Served it warm over a salad of chard, romaine, red cabbage and a scoop of guac. Best dinner salad ever.

Tell me what you think!
