Game Day Foods: Boardwalk Food Co.

IMG_1762Game day is essential if you’re a fan of football, hockey, or basketball this season! Boardwalk Food Co. is a craft beer bread mix company that allows you to integrate your favorite beers into fun snacks and breads. Between the Strawberry Beer Bread you saw this summer and these Coney Island Cheddar Jalapeño Poppers, the opportunities with this brand are endless!

I love the Coney Island Lager for it’s caramel and spice notes. This really integrates well into the dense and delicious popper mix. Adding in the Cabot Cheddar and spicy jalapeño just made this mix that much more fun. Munch on these throughout game day as they are delectable and pop-able right out of the oven or at room temperature!

IMG_1745Boardwalk Beer Breads are essential in my kitchen and make it easy to whip up something unique and delicious that everyone will love. Try these for Thanksgiving too for a simple solution when you want to whip up something quick, easy and appetizing!

You can absolutely pair these with beer, cider or wine. Here is the recipe and some of my pairing recommendations:

Method:

1. Dice cheese and pepper and then add in to beer bread mixture. Mix with your favorite beer until well incorporated.
