Big Game Snack Plan

Before kickoff Sunday at Super Bowl XLIX between New England and Seattle, make sure your kitchen is ready for the big game day party.  Whether you view the Super Bowl as an epic battle between an offensive genius and a defensive powerhouse or as a competition between the commercials of your favorite brands, we can all agree it is a wonderful excuse to have friends over and stuff your faces. After all it is the second largest food consumption day after Thanksgiving. Fortunately, Grecian Delight has you covered with your Big Game Snack Plan. We’ve hand selected the most game ready recipes in our arsenal that will surely be a touchdown with your crowd.

It’s pretty much written in stone that finger foods are the way to go for a Super Bowl party.  People want to graze on dips, chips and apps, without feeling overly committed to one dish.  The perfect mix includes something meaty, something spicy, something sweet and something for veggies. First in the lineup is our Mediterranean Nachos. These couldn’t be easier and will take seconds to throw together before your guests arrive. Just top pita chips with chopped gyro meat and your favorite add-ons, pop them in the microwave, and you’re ready to go with a unique twist on an old standby.

Next up is a perennial favorite: Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms. These little caps are full of zip with the addition of Zesty Feta and are a fiery alternative for those guests looking for hot wings.

And finally, our Sweet Cinnamon Chips can be made with any of our pita breads. These sugary chips are a welcome addition to your party and will disappear as fast as you can make them.

So place your bets, pull up a chair and crack open a cold one, we’ve got the menu for planning the perfect Super Bowl party taken care of. Both Seahawks and Patriots fans will agree that this munchable Big Game Snack Plan is the real champion.

Flatbread pizzas add pizzaz to restaurant menus

For the past few years, we've seen flatbread pizzas popping up everywhere from SUBWAY to Pizza Hut. But the trend started in fine dining decades before as a way to offer customers something they are familiar with – pizza, while allowing a sampling of extraordinarily high-end ingredients like artisan cheeses, exotic vegetables and far-from-mainstream meats.
