It's the big game and there is no excuse ordering pizzas or serving up the same old dried out bratwursts. These are some of my most popular recipes for game day and most of them can be prepared before the pre-pre-game starts. Make a great meal, make everyone happy, and enjoy the game while it is actually on. All you need is a grill and a big TV.
Fully Loaded Flat-Iron Steak Sandwiches
A delicious sandwich that combines the genius of a fully loaded baked potato with a flavorful beef sandwich. Great for any occasion, but a really nice addition to game night.
Grilled Apricot-Balsamic Chicken Wings
These wings are grilled then drizzled with a delicious apricot-balsamic reduction, and topped with chopped red onions and parsley. A tasty addition for any get together.
Pulled Pork Sliders
We are all in agreement that pulled pork sandwiches are delicious, but these sliders are not only bite-sized and flavorful but includes a lightly seasoned mini pork or beef patty with bacony goodness. This is a decadent sandwich, but small. So it all evens out in the end.

Spicy Chicken Sandwich
Forget fast food spicy chicken sandwiches, this recipe is fresh, flavorful, and much better for you. This recipe is quick and easy enough for weeknight meals, but is a great addition to cookouts and game day parties. Served with a green onion aioli, this sandwich will win your heart over. If looking for an even healthier option, omit the bun and wrap in lettuce.

Flat Iron Sandwiches with French Onion Au Jus
This recipe is for the serious sandwich lover. The steaks are marinated, then grilled to perfection, sliced and layered onto bread with onions from the au jus, Swiss cheese, and a mustard-black pepper mayonnaise. Dip this heaping sandwich into piping hot au jus for the greatest food experience.
The Ultimate Patty Melt
This patty melt contains a bit of stout beer in both the ground beef patties and the sauteed onions, giving it a rich beefy flavor. I recommend using a marbled rye for this recipe. If you are unable to find cippolini onions, any sweet onion will do.
The Ultimate Stuffed Ribeye Burger
These burgers are made out of ground ribeye steaks, and stuffed with a delicious mushroom and pancetta filling. Topped off with a French inspired sauce, these decadent burgers are a must try!
Crab Stuffed Mushroom Sliders
What could be better than stuffed mushrooms? How about stuffed mushroom sliders? These portabella caps are stuffed with a creamy crab filling, cooked on the grill and served on slider buns. Make sure to find mushrooms that are just slightly larger than the buns as they tend to shrink during the cooking process. These sliders are great for any occasion, but I highly recommend them for tailgating and Super Bowl gatherings.
