We're not sure about you, but football games - be it pre-season, regular season or post-season - aren't complete without a few classic football foods!
We love our buffalo wings and pigs-in-a-blanket as much as anyone does, especially when paired with a nice cold beer. Recently, however, the big football food recipe at our parties is this cheesy dip.
Quick, easy and packed with all the best football flavors we fans love, it's a simple choice when debating what to serve your hungry guests when they arrive ready to cheer.
4 tablespoons cornstarch
3 pounds sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
3 cups beer
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 pounds cooked, crumbled ground meat
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
Note: Makes 4 cups
Toss cornstarch with cheese until coated.
Combine beer and butter in medium saucepan and bring to a boil over low heat. Add a handful of cheese into the boiling beer and stir until cheese is melted. Continue adding cheese by the handful, stirring constantly, over low heat until cheese becomes creamy, about 5 minutes. Stir in cooked meat and tomatoes and remove from heat.
Transfer the cheese mixture into a fondue pot and cover for transport to the tailgate site. Warm the dip with a tailgate-safe heating source under your fondue pot and serve with bread or tortilla chips as dipping items.
Grill these wings, then glaze with our sauce for a sweet, smokey bite.
Our basic batch requires just 3 ingredients and is perfect when you need wings fast.
A drier recipe, though no less delicious, these chicken wings are easy to make.
