Top 5 Sandwiches for Super Sunday

1. Deer, beer and bacon buns. While not a traditional sandwich, we love these for the convenience (and neatness), not to mention the presence of three ingredients we adore: venison, bacon and beer. Game meat on game day, get it?

2. These wild boar sliders are in keeping with the game theme.  Yes, wild boar shoulder makes a terrific pulled-pork style sandwich filler. Or should we say pulled boar?

3. Who needs a foot-long sandwich when you have a banh mi? Our smoked duck breast is easily sliced and layered on a baguette in this simple banh mi recipe.  It’s perfect to make ahead of time of the game, and offers great flavor combinations. Try substituting our duck rillettes for the smoked duck breast.

4.  The Philly cheese steak burger.  Half sandwich, half burger, wholly satisfying. In place of the sliced steak, we made oblong wagyu burger patties. Yeah, it works.

5. Lobster rolls with bacon. Need we say more? This is a special treat that we heartily endorse for any game day party – but it’s probably best for a small crowd. You want the buttery buns toasted and served immediately.

Stay tuned for hearty mains that will make game day even tastier.

Super Bowl Sunday, the Meat of the Matter

For something beyond finger food…that will stick to the ribs and help absorb some of the alcohol on game day, here are our picks.

You can’t go wrong with chili. It’s a one-pot, make-ahead meal that can be ladled out in haste between plays. Melt some cheese on top, serve with corn chips. Or with bacon cornbread. Everyone loves chili. We take ours with buffalo, thank you.

For a variation on the theme, this tomatillo and lamb stew is hearty, warming, and a lovely surprise for your Super Bowl guests. You might serve it with tortillas to soak up the luscious juices.

Forget about the Velveeta shortage and try eating real macaroni with real cheese. And real truffles.

Whether you follow directions and make individual ramekins of this decadent mac ‘n’ cheese, or  whip up a huge batch and dole out spoonfuls, this is a dish not easily forgotten. Which is to say that when truffles and cream meet over noodles of any kind, there is true magic.  Get good at making this, because it will be requested again and again.

Black Truffle Mac ‘n’ Cheese

No sooner do we think of mac-n-cheese than sliders come to mind. Did we promise a foie-gras-free zone? Sorry about that! These buffalo mini burgers with foie gras are too tempting. Not to worry, it’s just our medallion of foie  gras with truffles, which we treat as a spread in this recipe. So easy! The sweet-sour tangy flavor of the onion marmalade balances this burger beautifully.

Class up the party with a massive Berkshire pork loin, prepared simply: stuffed with garlic and herbs, rolled, tied and then roasted. It’s an easy way to serve up to 10 people and it sure looks impressive.

And there’s always ribs. Glorious ribs. Smoky, sweet, sticky ribs. Roasted in the oven and slathered with sauce…pork spare ribs or St. Louis style, beef short ribs or even wild boar ribs …  we never saw a rib we didn’t like.  Serve up platters of ribs and make everyone happy this Super Bowl Sunday.
