Unclogged: Mario Batali's Super Bowl Menu
Here's my menu and timing, from pre- to post-game. Feel free to use it yourself. If you are going to do this at home, remember to keep the portions smallit's easy to have way too much food, and quarters don't last that long.
Mario Batali's Super Bowl Menu
Hot Pretzels with Mustard
Mini Lobster Rolls (You could use this recipe for the lobster and then cut the larger rolls into small hors d'oeuvre–size pieces.)
New York Pizza (from Otto, of course)
New England Clam Chowder (Jasper White's recipe)
Hot Dawgs from Gray's Papaya with the Works (I really will sprint down and back during a commercial.)
New York Cheesecake or Boston Cream Pie: We eat the winners and chuck the
losers. This year, I'll bring in cheesecakes from Junior's, but I'll have to make the Boston cream pie, as I don't know any Boston cream pie makers in New York.
