My Husband’s Super Bowl Meal

6808715993:Yahoo:photo My husband is a big football fan, so Super Bowl Sunday calls for some special man-food. Last year, he wanted burgers, beans, and potato salad.

Here’s what we made:

In general, I prefer handmade veg burgers to the prepackaged, frozen kind, but these are convenient when you need them quickly or want to bring them to a BBQ. If you’re looking for something to bring to a party, the Cheesy Oozy Guacamole Bean Dip from The Kind Diet also makes excellent game fare.

What are your favorite brands of veg burgers? Do you have a favorite frozen kind? Share in the comments below, and don’t forget to tell me what you plan to eat for Super Bowl Sunday!

    I’d eat that! For me, Super Bowl parties are all about the snack foods, which take the place of actual meals for me in this instance. I’m talking guac, bean dip, etc., although Alicia’s delicious oozy dip combines both into one delicious snack.

    definitely prefer homemade black bean burgers but, we always have morningstar mushroom lovers on hand. They are my fiancee’s fave so they are an easy go-to for him when I work late. He’s a steak and potato guy, so a huge step for him to voluntarily grab these.

    What were the beans… traditional baked beans? BBQ beans? I am always looking for a good bean recipe to go with “burgers”!
