In any other year, Super Bowl Sunday would mean a day of cooking our favorite football food and watching pre-game shows, but this year will be a little different. We decided that this was the year that we were really going to do the ski thing the right way. Every Sunday, we pack some lunches, pull on some layers and head to the slopes just half an hour away for a day of skiing. That doesn’t leave us much time for cooking before the Super Bowl, so the plan is a little different this year.
We’ll be making a batch of Slow Cooker Hoisin Chicken the day before, then reheating it just before the big game and piling it on whole wheat buns with a Spicy Asian Slaw. Sweat pants, a roaring fire, our good friends and our favorite shredded chicken. That sounds like the perfect game day to me!
While Super Bowl foods are notoriously calorie- and fat-laden, I have a whole slew of healthy recipes in my arsenal that are every bit as satisfying. Let’s get started with my family’s Top 10 favorites. May the best team win on Sunday!
