5 Delicious Super Bowl Meals
With the best Super Bowl ideas, you can have just as much fun preparing Super Bowl food recipes as you do watching the football game. While many people reach for simple snacks and junk food such as chips, pizza and hot wings, you can prepare a savory homecooked meal that is both healthy and delicious.
Skip the snacks this year and treat your family to a hearty meal that’s perfect for the cold Super Bowl weekend weather. If you need some unique Super Bowl meal ideas, consider the following recipes:
1. Sausage Quesadillas
Super Bowl Sunday is the second-largest grilling week of the year, second only to the week of July Fourth. Prepare some festive sausage quesadillas to cook on your grill this year. This dish combines Premio Mild Italian Sausage with marinara sauce, roasted red peppers, mozzarella cheese, asiago cheese and Italian seasoning inside soft tortilla shells.
To make this sausage quesadilla recipe, you simply need to broil or grill the Premio sausage until it’s fully cooked through. Cut the sausage into rounds after cooling for 10 minutes, and then divide the rounds evenly over four tortillas. Divide strips of roasted red peppers evenly among the sausage rounds and spread 1/3 cup of marinara sauce over each tortilla before sprinkling 1/4 cup of asiago cheese and 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese over each one.
Sprinkle half a teaspoon of Italian seasoning over each tortilla before topping each one off with an additional tortilla. Cook or grill the quesadillas in a large skillet or a gas grill over medium-high heat. Cook each side until it’s a light golden color, and you will have delicious quesadillas ready to serve.
2. Deep-Dish Pizza
Pizza delivery orders increase on Super Bowl Sunday, making pizza one of the most popular Super Bowl foods. Skip the delivery order this year and prepare your own homemade deep-dish pizza. Premio’s Super Bowl deep dish pizza recipe combines Premio Mild Italian Sausage with delicious vegetables, garlic and butter or oil in a flaky pie crust.
To make this delicious pizza, cook your Premio sausage in butter or oil in a frying pan according to package instructions. Add celery, carrots, onions, corn, peas, tomatoes, garlic and water to the pan and cook for five minutes. Pour the sausage and vegetable mixture into a deep baking dish and top with ready-made pie crusts with slits in the top to allow steam to escape. Bake the pie at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until the crust turns golden brown.
3. Sausage-Stuffed Peppers
If you’re looking for creative ideas for Super Bowl recipes, sausage-stuffed peppers are fun to make and eat. This sausage-stuffed peppers recipe combines Premio Sweet Italian Sausage with ground chicken, toasted wheat bread, onions, zucchini, carrots, celery, eggs, parsley, rosemary, salt and pepper inside flavorful green peppers. This dish delivers plenty of flavors and healthy vegetables for a Super Bowl meal that’s both delicious and good for you at the same time.
To make sausage-stuffed peppers, slice the top off of six green bell peppers and set them aside. Clear the ribs and seeds out of the peppers, pierce the bottom of each pepper with a fork and place them on a baking rack within a rimmed baking sheet. Beat eggs with a fork in a large bowl and add zucchini, celery, onions and carrots.
Pulse the toasted bread in a food processor, or use your hands to crumble the bread into fine crumbs, and add them to the bowl. Next, add the Premio sausage, ground chicken, rosemary, parsley, salt and pepper to the bowl and gently mix the ingredients together. Use a spoon to place the mixture into the six green peppers and bake them uncovered at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour. Once they are done baking, replace the pepper tops and allow them to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
4. Beer Bratwurst
Approximately 41% of Americans plan to drink soda while enjoying the Super Bowl, and 32% plan to drink beer. Beer can serve more purposes than sitting in the cooler, though. This year, consider using your beer to cook a delicious meal and make beer bratwurst. This warm, hearty meal is perfect for the cold February weather, and it packs enough flavor to make game day fun and exciting.
Our Super Bowl beer bratwurst recipe combines Premio Bratwurst with beer, Idaho potatoes, green bell pepper, onion, ground cumin, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, black pepper and Dijon mustard. To prepare beer bratwurst, use oil to cook the Premio sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the sausage is brown on all sides, add the potatoes and cook until they are lightly brown.
Add the green pepper and onion to the skillet and sprinkle the mixture with cumin, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Continue cooking until the onion turns slightly translucent. Add beer and Dijon mustard to the pan, and cover and simmer the bratwurst for about 25 minutes or until the potatoes soften. Thoroughly stir the mixture to produce a potato gravy and serve in bowls with Italian or French bread.
5. Super-Stuffed Sausage Manicotti
Cheese is one of the most popular ingredients for Super Bowl meals and snacks. If your family is craving cheese and pasta this Super Bowl Sunday, consider making super-stuffed sausage manicotti. Premio’s super-stuffed sausage manicotti recipe combines Premio Sweet Italian Sausage and Premio Hot Italian Sausage with pasta, olive oil, onion, garlic, spaghetti sauce, eggs, three kinds of cheese, salt and pepper.
To make super-stuffed sausage manicotti, combine ricotta cheese, cottage cheese and eggs in a large bowl. Add a couple of pinches of salt and pepper along with 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese to the mixture and set aside. Saute garlic and onions in olive oil over medium heat, then add bite-size chunks of Premio Hot Italian Sausage and Premio Sweet Italian Sausage. Slowly brown the sausage before adding the spaghetti sauce.
Boil the manicotti pasta for 12 minutes or until al dente. Once the pasta is ready, place the cheese mixture in a plastic bag, cut a corner off and use it to fill the pasta with cheese. Spread a thin layer of sausage and sauce on the bottom of a casserole dish and place the manicotti on top. Cover the pasta with the remaining sauce and cheese. Bake this at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until the cheese on top turns slightly brown.
