Super Bowl Feast

For us, watching the Super Bowl is just an excuse to stuff ourselves silly with American comfort food. We normally try and do regional foods based on the teams in the game, and we were hoping one of the Midwest teams got through so we could do some of their food… but they both got knocked out in the Championship games. So we’re abandoning our normal plan and just doing any American food we fancy, including various Wisconsin recipes from this Midwest Living list.

Breakfast Pancakes

Pineapple upside-down pancakes to be exact. It’s my rye sourdough pancakes, with pineapple rings on them, that caramelize nicely during frying.

Sam Adams

Our American Pale Ale won’t be ready for another week, so we’re taking Majestic Wines up on their offer of 24 Sam Adams for £24.

Lunch at a Diner

On the way to pick up the San Adams we stopped off at Mishkin’s for a Ruben on rye.

Drunken Beans

Roughly following this Cook’s Country recipe, using the pork belly ribs that we’ve saved in the freezer for extra bacon flavour!

Savoury Corn Muffins

We need something to dip in the Boston Beans, and these Savoury Corn Muffins from the latest issue of Cook’s Illustrated look perfect.

Nachos

I’m making my own nachos from my homemade tortillas, then baking with cheese to melt the cheese, and topping with jalps, salsa, guac & sour cream.

(Yeah… too much food, this will be breakfast nachos tomorrow…)

Oven Smoky BBQ Ribs

We’ve got ribs in the freezer, and this Cook’s Country recipe can make them into smoky BBQ ribs in the oven!

Wisconsin Brownies

Basically brownies with a cheese frosting. I’ll use the frosting from that recipe, but turn to Cook’s Country for a brownie recipe designed to take toppings.

I’m also going to use a new brownie tray I’ve got that has a sliding base to make them easy to remove.

NY Cheesecake

The latest Cook’s Illustrated has a ‘foolproof’ recipe for NY cheesecake, which sounds perfect for my first attempt at cheesecake!

Wisconsin Mac’n’Cheese

We looked at a Wisconsin recipe, but there’s nothing special about it, so Soph’s just doing her regular mac’n’cheese, which varies from the traditional by using penne pasta and adding leaks & lardons to the mix.
