It’s that time of year again where we all gather around the TV to watch the big game. Joining us today is Chef Jamie Gwen with some delicious ideas to spice up your game day spread.
Guacamole is a classic, must-have food at every big game celebration, making for one of the biggest days for avocado consumption nationwide and the highest potential for avocado-related knife injuries. While WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE is not an insurance company, as America’s #1 selling refrigerated guacamole made with hand-scooped Hass avocados and delivering real, quality ingredients, good fats and fiber, and incredible taste, they are helping to prevent pre-game injuries. You can enter to win “Avocado Hand Insurance”—in the form of a year’s supply of convenient, ready-to-serve WHOLLY® GUACAMOLE now through February 7. Just upload a video of your best dip on Instagram and tag @eatwholly. Click here to learn more.
There’s no better way to celebrate than with a cheese board! They’re easy to assemble and you can customize your board with your favorite flavors. I made this one using Roth Cheese – their line of artisan specialty cheeses are made in Wisconsin, so you know they’re good. I used their signature cheese, Grand Cru, a nutty alpine-style cheese, Jalapeno Havarti and Smoked Gouda. Then I added tailgate-worthy snacks like olives, nuts, crackers, and raw veggies. All of these Roth Artisan Cheeses can be easily found in the deli area at your local grocery store. Click here to learn more.
Many of us will be having smaller, household gatherings and this next dish still adds an element of fun. I made these Mini Pizza Cups with Pearls’ Sliced Black Olives. People who love olives, love and trust Pearls. 100% grown and packed in sunny California and picked at the peak of freshness, they are versatile, flavorful and easy. In honor of National Pizza Day on February 9, Pearls Olives has a giveaway on Instagram for the chance to win a pizza-making prize pack. Because we’ve all been cooking at home and need some inspiration, Pearls Olives has declared 2021 as the year of Pizza, Pasta and Pearls.
