Guy Fieri’s 7 Best Recipes for a Super Game Day Party
No one does game-day grub quite like Guy.
On Monday we shared the news that for the first time ever, Guy Fieri is bringing four of his best chef pals to Miami to host Guy’s Big Game Live, just in time for Super Bowl weekend. It’s happening this Friday night @ 8|7c on the Food Network Kitchen app, and we’ve got everything you need to know right here. (Download the app and sign up today so you can join the class on Friday!) But until then, we’ve got Guy’s best-of-the-best picks for football fans, from a spicy chili served atop fries to sweet and “craisy” oatmeal cookies. Read on below for our favorite bites.
With a glowing five-star rating from fans, Guy’s meaty chili gets its firey kick from a trio of chiles, plus a heaping helping of cayenne. He turns his hearty mixture into a meal by serving it atop golden fries. (PS: If you’ve never tried his double-fry method, you’re in for a treat!)
OK, don’t let the name fool you here! These party-ready nachos are the ultimate in delicious indulgence. Guy uses a big empty can (but you can use a pot too) to layer chips, a gooey cheese sauce, juicy carne asana and black beans to create a showstopping nacho masterpiece your friends will love.
Skip the stuff from the store and make Guy’s top-rated version instead. He takes his time to slowly cook down Vidalia onions and shallots until they’re soft and golden brown. It’s important to not rush this process; you want the onions to caramelize and develop a deep, flavorful sweetness.
A combo of mild sausage, garlic and nutty Parmesan cheese combine with tangy mascarpone cheese to create a new twist on a filling for jalapeno poppers. Unlike more traditional recipes, these jalapeno peppers aren’t fried. Instead Guy first halves then roasts them to soften the peppers, then he stuffs them and moves them to the broiler to melt the cheese.
Guy gives options for making these saucy wings either on the grill or in the oven. Either way, they turn out deliciously moist and, of course, full of flavor.
Cuban sandwiches are a stable in Miami, where the big game is being held and from where Guy’s Big Game Live will be broadcast! His take on the classic sandwich features a bold mojo-inspired pork marinade, which comes together with plenty of French orange juice and bright herbs.
These buttery cinnamon-laced cookies get their name from one key ingredient: dried cranberries. The fruit adds a chewy bite and pairs well with the addition of sweetened coconut flakes.
