4 Football-Obsessed Chefs Share Ribs, Wings And Slider Tailgating Recipes

Here's what to cook up for game day this weekend
Sep 18, 2014 2:00 pm

Both the NFL and college football seasons are in full gear, and while we're curious to find out if the Seahawks and Seminoles can pull off repeats, we're even more excited about the start of another season: tailgating season. We checked in with a few chefs – all alums of renowned university football programs – to ask for their go-to game day recipes. Here's what we found out.

Here's What Michael Mina Is Serving At Sunday's 49ers Tailgate (Hint: It's Epic)

'Crazy' 5-course feast includes liquid-nitro treats
Sep 12, 2014 2:00 pm

Michelin-starred chef and longtime San Francisco 49ers fan Michael Mina used to host some pretty epic tailgate parties in the parking lot outside the football stadium on game days. This year, the 49ers have brought Mina's party inside. The menu, as you might expect, is about as far from peanuts and Crackerjack as you can get. Preview the pre-game feast right here.

Welcome to the party! Grab a cracker and get intimate with Reuben Dip, the most awesome snack on the table. Since Reuben sandwiches make for awkward party food, I decided to level the playing field and melt the sandwich filling down into a cheesy, tangy, corned beefy fondue. Or pastrami, of course. You can have your Reuben both ways, and now you can have it in gooey, melty dip form.

Canadians must know what they're doing, because anyone who thinks to combine French fries, cheese and gravy into one harmonious dish is genius in our book. Making fries at home can be laborious and messy to boot, and since we're obsessed with anything pretzel (especially for the start of football season) we've made our mark on the venerable poutine with this new spin we think you'll dig.

I love potato skins, but the combination of bacon, melted cheddar and melting sour cream can actually be a little too much even for a dish that's meant to be shameless. Don't shoot, I'm only human. Instead, I load my potato skins with creamy homemade spinach feta dip, sprinkle with parmesan and broil 'til crispy on top. That way you can eat more of them.

The 2014 NFL season will kick off tonight in spectacular fashion, as the defending champion, defensive-minded Seattle Seahawks host the explosive, Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers in a rematch of the notorious Fail Mary game. Since your attention will undoubtedly be focused on game action over the first few weeks — at least until your team starts 0-3 — we've taken the liberty of putting together a cheat sheet to help with off-field (read: couch) drinking.

I love making appetizers that are two or more dishes in one. When it comes to snack food, hybridize all you want. That means not choosing between spicy popcorn chicken, sesame-orange chicken and chicken wings, because you can make all three in one delicious, deep-fried bite. Here's how to do it.
