Unique Eats for Super Bowl Sunday
January 30, 2019
There’s no way to know who will win Super Bowl LIII on Feb. 3, but there’s one thing you can count on: there will be good food. If you’re in charge of an appetizer, make sure you pull your weight and bring one of these tasty, unique snacks for your friends.
Sprigs in a Blanket [Good Housekeeping]
Pigs in a blanket are so last year. These sprigs in a blanket take the same concept but add an unexpected gourmet twist. Instead of a cocktail weenie, a spiral of cheese-embellished puff pastry hugs tender asparagus and thinly sliced prosciutto. So you won’t feel any guilt when you nibble on a few of these veggie-heavy bites.
Vietnamese-Style Banh Mi Burgers [Banh Mi]
If you love the Vietnamese sandwich known as banh mi, you’ll appreciate this similar version of a burger. The recipe instructs you on how to form oblong burger patties that will fit easily inside of a baguette roll, which you then top with classic banh mi ingredients including pickled veggies and a homemade sauce.
Whiskey and Rye Chocolate Chip Cookies [Bon Appetit]
These artisan chocolate chip cookies contain a mere teaspoon of bourbon, but it’s enough to kick up the flavor a few notches. Along with flaky sea salt, ample amounts of sugar, and pulsed chocolate wafers, the bourbon fills each cookie with a robust flavor. The gourmet treat will delight both your whiskey-loving friends and any buddies who have a sweet tooth, so they’re the perfect dessert for the entire game-watching gang.
