1. Buffalo Chicken Toasts

Need an easy, crowd-pleasing appetizer for game day? Make a batch of spicy buffalo chicken toasts with our tender chicken leg confit and a few simple ingredients probably already in your kitchen.


2. Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeño

This recipe with homemade pimento cheese and our hickory smoked bacon gives stuffed jalapeño “poppers” an upgrade. They’re super easy to make and perfect for a party, game day, and beyond.


3. Cheese Stuffed BBQ Buffalo Meatballs

These easy-to-make buffalo meatballs are stuffed with cheddar cheese and topped with smoky barbecue sauce. Great to make ahead and heat at half-time, then slather with BBQ sauce before the action ensues.


4.Wagyu Short Rib Barbacoa

Our Wagyu short ribs are braised in a heady mix of spices and four types of chile peppers in this easy recipe. The spoon-tender, spicy meat makes an excellent filling for tacos. Prep the fixings ahead of time and let everyone assemble their own.

5. Baked Beans with Bacon & Molasses

Here’s a tasty recipe for baked beans and bacon to serve at your next game day gathering. Making this sweet-and-smoky staple yourself is well worth the time. The bacon weave is optional (but recommended).


6. Bacon Bomb Sliders

You know the recipe – that “internet famous” giant mound o’ meat filled with bacon, wrapped in bacon, and glazed with BBQ sauce. We admit, we see the appeal, but we wanted our rendition to be a little more approachable and a lot more fun. So we made mini versions stuffed with cheddar, wrapped and glazed, then served them up in soft slider buns. They’re the bomb.


7. Black Truffle Butter Buffalo Wings

Spicy Buffalo-style wings are the always a party favorite, but we’ve upped the flavor ante to make them even better. Our creamy black truffle butter adds a whole new dimension of richness and depth, making these wings your guests won’t soon forget.
