I thought it would be fun to compile a few of our favorite Game Day & Tailgate Party Recipes in one nice recipe round-up. Seems I have quite a ‘few’ favorites. Just click the boldrecipe titles below, then scroll to the bottom of the following page for printable recipes. Enjoy!!
I am unashamed of my love for bacon. It has and always will be a treat for my taste buds and the epitome of comfort food.
That’s before it’s oven roasted then slathered in Praline & Maple or drizzled with Sriracha Honey or submerged in Peach Bourbon Glaze or brushed with Rosemary & Black Pepper Honey. Candied Bacon is a meat-lover, sweets-lover dream come true!
I am completely serious when I say that I might love leftovers more than the original serving. I realize there are some exceptions, but for the most part I’m a leftovers kind of girl.
We recently enjoyed some fine Ribeye steaks (remind me to tell you later about the reverse-seared method Nick used to cook them). Any how, we found ourselves with enough leftover steak to turn into Beef Stroganoff.” This dish could be made with any leftover steak or nice tender beef strips and your favorite kind of mushrooms. We used these gorgeous Shiitakes that we found at the farmers market.
On any given day, this is one of the most popular recipes on the blog. Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy, served over Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes with a side of green peas is pure comfort. I wanted to prepare and share a dish that said “when I am with you I am complete and comfortable”.
Growing up in beautiful New England was a blessing for so many reasons. The small town simple life made way for creativity and adventure. As kids we walked to school, rode our bikes to the lake, climbed ‘the mountain’ for fun, went to every Friday night basketball game, and loved our lobsters & chowders, grinders, maple syrup, and New England Boiled Dinners. Each year as we welcome in the Autumn season I think of soups and stews and pumpkins and foliage and New England.
Corned Beef Hash with Poached Eggs. Designed for breakfast, hearty enough for dinner, and really great leftover.
One benefit of food blogging is that from time to time we have to make a dish more than once. Especially if it’s a holiday themed recipe that needs to get out ahead of time. That’s exactly what happened this year in preparation for St. Patrick’s Day…times three. Yes, we cooked three rounds of corned beef between March 6th and March 17th. One for my New England Boiled Dinner post, one for my office St. Patrick’s Day Luncheon, and one for us to enjoy on St. Patty’s Day.
Red Flannel Hash might be characterized as New England Boiled Dinner‘s better half. As the story goes, no Boiled Dinner is officially over until the last of the red flannel hash is served. And since no boiled dinner has ever been eaten in just one sitting, this heavenly hash is the icing on the cake if you will.
