Gnocchi is always the first thing that pops into my head when I think Superbowl Sunday, and why not they are shaped like a football, they have faux threading that looks like a footballs laces and they totally score points.
Scoring big is the name of the game and the one with the most points wins, so if you want to split the uprights then serve up some of this game day lasagna. Pass the pasta will be the big play of the day. Pumpkin pasta sheets with six cheeses and a pumpkin puree will turn everyone into a cheerleader, plus the plate floats in mid air!
Points, its all about points, extra points, sudden death points and toast points but these toast points are the hail mary of all toast points.
You'll be a bigger star than Doug Flutie, with this slant on the toast point.
Baked not fried, puff pastry not toast, with a gingery shrimp paste that will definitely get you into the end zone.
The losers wont be upset when you give them the finger.
Or maybe they give you the finger, chicken fried steak fingers that is.
These fingers are gonna give you a hand to make a pass with out being off sides, in fact they are so tasty you might just find yourself roughing the passer.
However you play the game, whether its from the couch or the armchair, you cant help but feel like a winner when you get back to officiating and coaching from the safety of your seat with a big ol' paper plate full of these lil' bad boys. Enjoy the game, eat with your hands and remember to drink responsibly, whatever that means - I guess it means -dont get any on your clothes!
Fritos, bring em' if you got em'.
