5 Fan Favorite Football Recipes & Some Extra Game Day Snacks

Black Bean Nachos

Black Bean Nachos

Football season is upon us! College Saturdays & NFL Sundays are sacred for many, especially here in New England. Have your Pats jersey washed (or not)? Nail down that lucky spot on the couch? Prepare the same first & second half apps, entrees & ‘sserts as you did for every win last year? Once you can check all of your ritualistic items off the list, you can rest comfortably. Or at least on a full stomach.

Pre-Game in the Snack Zone

If you’re looking to incorporate simple game day snacks that feature a healthy twist, we’ve got coverage. Our Marketplace is chock full of tasty grab & go items that can easily enhance your spread:

We’d like to add more to your plate, in a good way… here are 5 fan favorite recipes that can make game day even more delicious than in years past.

Regulation Time Recipes:

Black Bean Nachos 

 Where else would we kick off? Yes…we know you’re excited for nachos and we are, too! There’s no denying our love of oozy cheese melted over a heap of deliciousness. This vegetarian version of one of America’s favorite football foods turns to black beans for protein and includes pickled jalapenos to add a bit of a kick…pun(t) intended!

Andouille Gumbo

You can count on us to put a regional spin on a recipe straight out of NoLa. And you can thank Bianco & Sons for the sausage in this hearty stew that is brimming with juicy vegetables, aromatic spices, and a thick, flavorful stock.

Jambalaya

In keeping with the theme of southern comfort food, we bring to you a mouthwatering Creole tradition: bell pepper, onion, and celery mixed with chicken thighs & spicy Italian sausage. This dish is a literal melting pot of the French and Spanish cultures that form the culinary makeup of Louisiana. So be prepared to take a trip to the Deep South with your taste buds in this filling recipe!

Sloppy Joes  

These may take you back to childhood, but there’s nothing childish about them. So be prepared to roll up your sleeves and amp up your Sloppy Joes with a variety of toppings, sauces and condiments for the ultimate sandwich. Our version doesn’t come on a plastic tray served by a surly lunch lady in a hair net, but it’s quick, easy, and perfectly complemented by a crisp, refreshing beer.

Tex-Mex Mac & Cheese

This comforting dish has it all: the flavors and textures of chili, plus the warm gooeyness of mac & cheese. Ground beef and kidney beans provide the protein for this dish, and the Monterey Jack cheese adds a creamy richness. Add some chili powder for a burst of heat!
