Last-Minute Super Bowl Recipes

We’re just hours away from the Super Bowl, but there’s still time to prepare some quick and easy recipes for your friends and fam. Chef Glenn Humphrey, CEC, CCE and placement director of the Arizona Culinary Institute, sent me the following recipes (PS Humphrey predicts the Cardinals to win by 14–let’s hope he’s right!):

5 cloves Garlic, minced
1 medium Onion, diced
2 T Olive oil
1 ½ T Caraway seed
1 32 oz. jar Sauerkraut, drained
16 oz. Dark beer
Salt and pepper to taste

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil. Do not brown. Add in caraway seed and sweat for two minutes. Add in sauerkraut then add beer. Bring to a gentle simmer, cover tightly and let cook for 1 hour. Check occasionally to add more beer if necessary. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Six Bratwurst
12 oz. Dark beer
½ Onion, sliced

Place beer and onions into a small pot. Bring to a simmer. Add bratwurst and barely simmer for 15 minutes. Remove brats and grill to crisp the skin to a golden brown.

Panzanella Salad
1 loaf Ciabatta or Italian bread
2 C Grape tomatoes, halved
1 C Black olives
3 T Capers, rinsed
2 C Mozzarella, diced
1 Red onion, sliced thin
1 C Basil, fresh, shredded
1 C Olive oil
½ C Red wine vinegar
¼ C Balsamic vinegar
5 cloves Garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut bread into ¾ inch cubes. Combine with next 6 ingredients and toss to disperse evenly. Whisk oil, vinegar and garlic together. Drizzle over bread mixture. Season with salt and pepper. This should be made 3-4 hours before serving to allow blending of flavors.

Oven-Fried Chicken Wings
3 dozen Chicken wings
1 C Oil
¼ C Butter, melted
1 ½ T Hot sauce

Wing dust, as needed to evenly coat:
½ C Salt
2 T Pepper, white
2 T Pepper, black
1 T Pepper, cayenne
2 T Allspice
2 T Chili powder
1 T Cinnamon
1 ½ T Cumin, ground
1 ½ T Coriander, ground
3 T Garlic, granulated
3 T Onion, granulated
1 T Thyme
1 ½ T Poultry seasoning
2 T Chipotle peppers, dried and ground
1 T Sage
Mix all ingredients together and store covered until needed.

Toss wings with 1 T of oil. Coat liberally with the wing dust. Heat a baking sheet with sides in 450 degree oven. When hot, add remaining oil to pan then add the coated wings. Turn occasionally while cooking until evenly cooked and crisp. When done, about 8-10 minutes, remove from oven, drain and toss with your choice of hot sauce and butter. Serve with bleu cheese dressing.
