Gearing Up for the Big Games and Bigger Savings

TD10

We’ve got two (hopefully!) big games to celebrate here in New England in the next few weeks. But regardless of where you live or what team you root for, football is always a great excuse to get your friends and family together for some FOOD. We want to be part of your football parties so this week, use code TD10 at checkout to save 10% on your entire order.

While most of us here at FamousFoods are Pats fans, we know they aren’t everyone’s cup of coffee milk. Though our fandom may divide us, it is our hope that good food can unite us. This year, cook up something delicious and bring fans together! Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Gold Medal NE Style Rolls_ORIG

First things first: Order hot dog rolls that are unique to New England! Put a distinctly New England spin on the hot dogs at your game day party with Gold Medal New England Style Hot Dog Rolls.

 

 

Kayem hot dogMost importantly, don’t forget the dogs! Boil or grill up hotdogs before the crowd arrives and keep warm in either a crockpot or warming tray. We especially love Kayem Hot Dogs and Franks!

New England Themed Football Party Ideas

New England football partyStart off the football party with good old fashioned clam chowder by Bar Harbor and SeaWatch. Both chowders are easy to make and full of flavor. If you’re looking to stand out in the crowd, make clam chowder shooters and garnish with a clam cake! We suggest using Kenyon’s  popular clam cake mix. Since you are making them small they will take less time to cook. Continue reading

Football Sunday - FOOTBALL15

So while you are watching your favorite team this weekend, why not enjoy Kayem’s Cocktail Franks? They were just added to our store and what perfect timing. The AFC and NFC Conference Championships this weekend will determine who will be making it to the Super Bowl. And of course our beloved New England Patriots will be playing Sunday night at 6:40PM against the Indianapolis Colts. As you get fired up for the game don’t miss out on game-winning appetizers. Kayem’s Cocktail Franks are premium pork and beef  and will be the perfect addition to your football Sunday. A quick Google search brought up endless possibilities on what you can make with these mini franks. Some favorites include Sweet & Sour Smokies and Kayem suggested making Zesty Pigs in a Blanket. The Sweet & Sour Smokies are an easy snack if you have a crockpot: just add 8 oz. of grape jelly, 8 oz. of chili sauce and Kayem’s Cocktail Franks. They will be done in about 2 hours! Like your food spicy? Use Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce. And speaking of Sriracha we must mention a recipe a foodie fan sent us…it involves Sriracha, honey and chicken wings, must we say more? Check out the rest of our Football Food Line Up:

Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings

Sriracha Sauce is a smooth, spicy, garlicky Vietnamese chili puree. This sauce is excellent in soups and sauces. It can be thought of as an Asian inspired Tabasco sauce, but with with twice the heat! One foodie fan shared a recipe for Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings, here’s what Mark from Quincy, MA had to say!

Sriracha Chicken Wings Recipe

“The Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings are savory and crispy. The honey makes the wings sweet and sticky while the Sriracha sauce brings the HEAT. It’s definitely a great snack to eat while watching Sunday football.”

The recipe Mark sent to us is sure to provide you with tender-fall of the bone kind of chicken wings! He told us that the recipe he sent us was for 2 servings but to just double it if you are bringing the wings for a game day appetizer. He also did not fail to mention that the day he made the wings the New England Patriots beat the Jets! GO PATS! Continue reading
