The Big Game is this Sunday and our friends at Beijos Events are sharing a delicious menu and party decor essentials to score big points with your crew.
Come for the football, stay for the tasty food. It wouldn’t be football’s biggest day without some delicious food to nosh on while you’re rooting for your favorite team. Break out your grill, if weather permits, and whip up two tasty appetizers: Maple Bourbon Bacon Flatbread and Beer Marinated Chicken Wings. You can always cook these on the stove.
“I love Taylor Farms chopped salad kits! There are endless ways to use them. One fun way is to create a salad flatbread. It’s healthy, easy to do, and is a crowd-pleaser. You can choose to make your flatbread, or buy store-bought. I usually will always do mine from scratch, but when it’s a busy event like Super Bowl, no one will judge!” Grab the recipe here.
When you think about football, chicken wings are a must! Grab the recipe for these finger-licking Grilled Beer Marinated Chicken Wings below and serve with your favorite Chopped Salad Kit.
2 1/2 lbs chicken wings and drumsticks ( you can even use chicken tenders too for the kids!)
1/3 cup cornstarch
2/3 cup beer ( I used IPA since we are serving that for hoppy hour)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 Tbsp honey
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp rice wine vinegar
2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce
Freshly chopped cilantro for garnish
Black Sesame Seeds for garnish
Celebrate hoppy hour with your favorite beers! You can prepare ahead time with a little help from these growlers from Growlerwerks, that keep your beer fresh, cold, and carbonated for two weeks. Add a fun customized bartender mat and some non-alcoholic options and water cups to stay hydrated!
“Add signage for a pretty touch, and to let friends know exactly what’s up! Its hoppy hour and we are chowing down on some yummies today.” The details make the design, try adding some fun balloons in your team’s colors or go classic with silver and gold. Display a menu so guests know what to expect from this fun and delicious day and get the party started. May the best team and the best meal get eaten first!
