The Big Game is only a week away and folks, it’s really time to stop slacking off and get your menu planned. I know it’s a day full of eating appetizer based food and seriously what can be better than that? However the same dips, chips and wings year after year can get pretty boring. It’s time to spice things up, change your game, and bring your favorite stadium food home in a fancy version.
For the second year in a row #SundaySupper is having our “Supper Bowl” with Gallo Family Vineyards. Since I convinced you last year that wine does belong at the table with finger foods, I don’t really need to do it again, do I?
No, I didn’t think I did. Wine is just as important part of the experience as other beverages. I mean, we all know how well the crisp white wines like Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio go with spicy food – which tends to show up on game day menus. In case you didn’t, white wines have that nice fruity acidity that calm down your taste buds when you accidentally grab a wing from the triple xxx fire batch instead of mild. I promise your taste buds will thank you.
Wine also goes with cheese and so clearly it’s a natural pairing.
It’s rare for me to attend live sporting events but when I do there are two smells that always seem to take over – those giant soft pretzels and that horrible fake bright yellow nacho cheese.
You know what I’m talking about – mustard is good and all but dipping those pretzels in some gooey nacho cheese sauce is what hits the spot. I thought to myself what if we combined the two (except with real cheese) into a bite sized pretzel cheese bomb?
It’s the best surprise ever! What you think you’ve got is a soft pretzel but hidden inside is melted cheese and bits of bacon – because everything is better with bacon!
The pretzels take work to put together but the payoff is worth it and it’s customizable to your cheese of choice and that bacon can be left out if you have vegetarians in house.
Also because I adore you so, I’ve given you the “I don’t want to put so much effort into it” version with big bacon and cheese pretzels! Not so bite sized but still the same great taste. Did I mention that everything can be made ahead of time? These guys are great toasted up if you want to bake them a few days ahead of time or you can even freeze the extras.
Are we all set for the Big Game now? Just in case my Bacon and Cheese Pretzel Bites and all the #SundaySupper recipes today don’t do the trick Gallo has you covered for Football Finger Foods over on their blog and tips for hosting the big game!
