Football-Watching Favorites

Giada De Laurentiis ups her game by turning classic bar snacks into homemade treats.

Sweet-and-Sour Pork Sliders

Moist pork tenderloin is topped with an Asian-inspired sauce and crunchy homemade slaw, then sandwiched inside a sweet Hawaiian bun. Orange juice adds tang, while soy sauce adds a nice salty kick to the tenderloin marinade.

Beer-Battered Cremini Mushrooms

Fluffy on the outside and meaty on the inside, these mushrooms are sure to be a hit, especially when served with Giada's lemon-mustard mayo.

Sweet Potato Strings with Beet Ketchup

If you like super-crunchy fries, you'll love these sweet potato ones dipped in a gourmet sauce. A blend of beets and olive oil plus a few unexpected ingredients like allspice and ginger turn a classic ketchup into something special. If you like your fries extra crispy, add a bit of flour to the sweet potato strings right before they are fried.

Chocolate and Raspberry Beer

This cocktail is dessert served in a big, frothy mug.  A rich chocolate stout is blended with something sweet: raspberry liqueur.
