Super Bowl 43 is upon us in just over 24 hours and Emeril has cooked up some awesome ways to make your tailgating food delicious and easy!!!!
I had recently discovered the Planet Green HD channel which hosts a variety of awesome Green shows and one of my favorites is Emeril Green!
The special that has been running all week is Emeril Green Tailgate.
Emeril shows how to spice up some choice grilling meats, veggies and beverages with ease while keeping things green while putting compostable waste in a portable compost container.
He spices up ribs, chicken breasts, chorizo burgers, shrimp and then grills vegetables like jicama, sweet potatoes and red onions, making a wicked coleslaw and Mexican Hot Chocolate (using organic almond milk; adding rum is optional) to top it off.
I have tried the chorizo burgers on a dry run and made them as sliders (or mini burgers) with mini sirloin burgers. I used a flat of attached dinner rolls (found at your local grocery store) as the mini buns which worked great! I also cooked up some turkey bacon until crispy and finely chopped it to make real bacon bits to add to the condiment choices (which also includes pepper jack cheese)!
One thing that I added for dessert was something I found last year that is a huge hit, especially if you have kids attending a Super Bowl fiesta! I picked up 2 jello moulds in the shape of footballs and football helmets that are very detailed. The moulds came with instructions on how to blend certain flavors of jello to make every color of helmet for each different team in the NFL!
Of course we are making red Jello Jigglers for the Arizona Cardinals this year to accent our main meal. We have made these before and they are a great dessert for all ages!!!!
Be sure to make your Super Bowl festivities fun, delicious and most of all, SAFE! Consume alcohol wisely and set up designated drivers for the BIG day!
