We were so thinking “Hey, we should do this!” Then our friends over at Food52 did it: a reader-submitted recipe contest featuring everyone’s favorite carbonated beverage. Yup, seltzer.
They feature over 100 submissions on the contest page here — by the way, we were kidding, the contest is obviously all about the beer — and are down to two finalists: stout waffles and gingerbread beer cake. We’d hit either of those; they’re both winners. We realize this isn’t how you enter their contest (and fellow food websites probably aren’t eligible anyway), but here are three recipes we’d totally submit:
- Budweiser Syrup
- Beer, Bacon and Cheddar Bread
- And of course, the Food Republic mascot: beer can chicken.
Check out the results next week to see which beer recipe takes the cake. Not that we think the cake looks better, they’re both awesome. Fine, the cake looks a little better.
