Here are our top picks guaranteed to make you the MVP on Game Day:
Everyone knows that wings are a staple of any football party, but ribs? Ribs are a finger-licking good substitute for wings on game day. To help get your ribs prepped, we’d like to share with you our meat specialist, Bill Howell’s, signature dry-rub recipe:
2 tbsp Kosher or Sea Salt
2 tbsp Light Brown Sugar
1 tbsp Granulated Garlic
1 tbsp Onion Powder
1 tbsp Black Pepper
1 tbsp Paprika
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
Mix spices together and rub generously onto ribs.
Preheat oven to 300°. Bake in foil 3 hours. Enjoy!
Enjoy the game with some good company and a classic meal that never gets old. Italian sausage and pepper sandwiches are a delicious choice for your Big Game party. Main Entrée hot or sweet Italian sausage will make this recipe a hit!
Place sausage in hot cast iron skillet and brown on all sides. Add water, cover and let steam for 5 to 8 minutes or until sausages are no longer pink in the middle. Remove to plate. Drain off any remaining water from skillet. Add olive oil to same skillet along with peppers and onions. Cook over medium heat until soft, about 20 minutes. Place sausage in a roll with peppers and onions. Add provolone cheese and heat under broiler if desired. Serve.

Another great option to switch things up for your game day festivities is with our Main Entrée beef and chicken fajitas. Take your party south of the boarder and enjoy the game with the tender, juicy goodness of our fajitas!
In a large skillet, sauté peppers and onions in oil until crisp-tender. Remove and keep warm.
Drain liquid from fajita packaging.
In the same skillet as peppers & onions, cook chicken over medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes or until no longer pink, or cook beef over medium-high heat until you reach desired level of doneness
Spoon filling down the center of tortillas; fold in half. Serve with toppings of your choice!
Football and food go hand in hand. Serve up a winning meal and celebrate the Big Game with Main Entrée!
