479° Has Nailed the Sweet Popcorn Game

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins 5 comments

It occurred to me recently that kettle corn is the great underrated sweet snack, the perfect game day treat for those who are sweets-inclined. Brownies and cookies are great at most occasions, but they don't allow for extended, hours long grazing and munching. In my quest to find the perfect version there were a lot of failures, and one very awesome success. More

As you plot your Super Bowl party, you're probably thinking about wings and dips, nachos and chili, potato skins and of course, a most importantly, a fridge full of beer. But it's nice to have a pitcher of cocktails—and an non-alcoholic option—ready as well. Here are a few ideas to get you started. More

The Vegan Experience: The Best Buffalo And Korean Fried Cauliflower

The Vegan Experience J. Kenji López-Alt 40 comments

Now that my wife has decided to go 100% vegetarian for good, she's had to resign herself to the sad truth: the perfect buffalo wing can never again be hers. In an act of selfless valor, I made it my mission to provide her with a suitable alternative: deep-fried cauliflower. More

Game Day Party: 6 Muffaletta-Flavored Foods You Should Make

J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

I've got nothing but good things to say about muffaletta sandwiches, the official sandwich of New Orleans (Ok, the po'boy might have something to say about that). If I could only take five sandwiches with me to my desert island, the muffaletta would be right up there leading the list. In fact, I love it so much that I have a jar of homemade olive salad that lives in the bottom shelf of my fridge all year round. It's an excellent condiment that finds its way into all sorts of foods at my place, so it's only natural that I've developed muffaletta-flavored variations of every snack food known to man. Here are some of my favorites. More

Super Bowl Sunday: Pizza HUT HUT HUT

Slice Niki Achitoff-Gray 16 comments

I'm sure you'll be shocked to learn that pizza tends to do pretty well on Super Bowl Sunday. And nobody capitalizes on the patronage of pizza-crazed football fans like Pizza Hut. HuffPo reports that the chain expects sales of roughly 2 million pies this coming Sunday. And sure enough, the hut's been taking orders for the big game since earlier this week, replete with a relaunch of their limited edition Big Dinner Box (featured above, in all its carbalicious glory).

Maybe you're playing the Super Bowl Drinking Game, maybe you're not. Either way, if you're having a Super Bowl party, you're gonna need drinks.

Grilled Cajun Chicken Wings

A heavily Cajun-seasoned skin gives an earthy and spicy coating to these chicken wings, while hot sauce adds another layer of flavor to create a complexity that goes beyond the standard Buffalo. More

New Orleans-Style Barbecue Shrimp Po' Boy

Serious Eats Suzanne Lehrer 2 comments

In the Big Easy, BBQ shrimp means simmering in garlicky butter sauce with Worcestershire, hot sauce and rosemary. Remoulade with homemade mayonnaise is just about as quick as opening a jar of pre-made tartar sauce--and approximately 100 times more delicious. More

Barbecue Chicken Biscuit Pull-Apart with Buttermilk Ranch

Serious Eats Suzanne Lehrer 1 comment

What's better than buffalo wings? All the wing fixin's--saucy chicken, cool ranch dressing and celery sticks--eaten between two buttermilk biscuits. The homemade buttermilk ranch dressing is well worth the minimal extra effort. More

How To Dress Up Your Frozen Pizza Right

Slice J. Kenji López-Alt 7 comments

What's that? You're too darn busy to make your own pizza? Even if it's The World's Easiest No-Knead No-Stretch Pan Pizza? Or the perfect-for-a-large-crowd, almost-100%-hands-off Party-Sized Square Pie? I get it. There's a time and a place for frozen pizza, and perhaps that time is Sunday and that place is your living room. More

Serious Entertaining J. Kenji López-Alt 3 comments

The key to a great game day spread is to make sure that you've got a good mix of dippables, scoopables, finger foods, and full-on edibles to keep your guests satisfied and entertained, all while making sure that enough of them can be made in advance so you don't have to worry about spending the whole game in the kitchen or rushing around like a maniac during half time trying to re-fill party platters.

11 Sweet Treats To Make For Your Super Bowl Party

Sweets Carrie Vasios Mullins Post a comment

When we think about sweets for our Super Bowl party, we think easy to share. We think boozy. We think salty-sweet. We also think caramel and peanut butter, but maybe that's just us. And we acknowledge that most of the effort is going into the wings, chili, and guac, so dessert shouldn't be anything too complicated. More

Ask a Sommelier: What Should I Drink During the Super Bowl?

Drinks Maggie Hoffman 3 comments

I'm sure you've invited a sommelier to your Super Bowl bash, presented her with your menu ("We'll do the guacamole as an amuse bouche, and then the 7-layer dip as the first course") and asked for pairing advice. Oh, no? Not yet? Well, we've done the asking for you. More

Bar Bites: Kimchi Frito Pie

Marvin Gapultos 6 comments

A quick sauté or stir-fry of ginger, garlic, beef, and chopped kimchi goes remarkably well when poured atop a pile of Fritos. While some may see this version of Frito Pie as sacrilege, I see it as a nice change of pace for your Super Bowl party. More
