Packer Football Party Food: Mini Sausages Wrapped in Bacon with Beer Cheese Sauce

packer-football-party-food-1Packer football party food needs to be hearty, rich in flavor and worthy of the Green Bay Packers. Can you picture Clay Mathews eating hummus or finger sandwiches? Nope, I didn’t think so. Clay would much rather have some sausages wrapped in bacon with beer cheese sauce. If you’ve ever had bacon wrapped anything at a party you know how fast people eat it, but add some beer cheese sauce and you might have to go to the store for more ingredients to make another batch. I also discovered that one package of bacon is EXACTLY enough to wrap one package of mini sausages. Coincidence? I think not. I bet someone from Wisconsin thought of it.

Packers: Fly Like a Cheese Head

I just saw this Fly Like a Cheese Head YouTube video and I had to write an emergency Packers blog post.  Now that I know how to Bucky I’ve got my Packers jersey and cheese head on, playing the Fly Like a Cheese Head song over and over so I know the words in time for the Packers vs. Falcons game on Saturday.

Update: Fly Like a Cheesehead shirts now available at Wisconsinmade.com!

Rose Bowl

rose-bowl-1Rose Bowl Veggies Watch out Rose Bowl, here comes the Wisconsin Badgers! I wish I could be in Pasadena for the Rose Bowl on January 1st, but looks like I will have to celebrate with my own Rose Bowl party right here in Madison.  Since my Wisconsin themed Rose Bowl party will mostly involve heavy foods like cheese, bratwurst, and Babcock Hall ice-cream, I decided to lighten up the Rose Bowl cuisine with a veggie tray, garnished with tomato roses.  The tomato roses seem fancy and look great, but they are surprisingly easy to make.  Read on to find out how to make them.

Favre Retires – Wisconsinites Pause and Pass the Green Bay Packer Potatoes

Yesterday Brett Favre retired from the Green Bay Packers….

Wisconsinites pause to reflect, remember, and honor Wisconsin’s greatest quarterback. Packer flags are flying at half mast. And the mood at Wisconsinmade.com is somber. Sad sighs of “It’s over… he’s really gone,” passed around the office. Finally, Katie broke the mood with, “He’s Retired, NOT Dead!”

We chuckled at our seriousness and agreed,”That’s right. Not dead, just moving on.”

“Aaron Rodgers will do well.”

“It’ll be OK…Some day.”

“But they’ll never be another Favre.”

“No, there won’t…(sigh) Let’s eat.”

So here’s one more green and gold food to honor the hero: Green Bay Packer Potatoes.

The recipe is taken from Terese Allen’s cookbook: Bountiful Wisconsin: 110 Favorite Recipes.

Green Bay Packer Potatoes

Potato Layer:

  • 3 pounds Russet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Squash Layer:

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked, pureed squash or pumpkin, or 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
  • 1 Tablespoon melted butter
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Spinach Layer:

  • 1 pound fresh spinach, stemmed, or 1 package (10 ounces) frozen, chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons grated onion
  • salt and pepper to taste

Optional:

  • 1/4 cup grated sharp cheddar

For potato layer, boil potatoes in salted water until very tender; drain well and while hot, mash them with sour cream, milk, butter, salt, and pepper.

For squash layer, combine pureed squash or pumpkin with melted butter, salt, and pepper.

For spinach layer, clean the leaves in cold water; drain. While they are still damp, place them in pot over medium heat to “steam” until limp, about 5 minutes. Rinse, drain, and squeeze out excess liquid. (If you are using frozen, thawed spinach, do not cook it; simply drain it well and squeeze out excess liquid). Coarsely chop the spinach and combine with egg, onion, salt, and pepper.

To assemble and bake: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a deep, two-quart casserole or baking dish.

Wisconsin Goes to the Superbowl, but as a Bratwurst Sausage

Brats

Don’t these brats look scrumptious?  Don’t they conjure up images of mouth-watering satisfaction, good times with friends, and of hot, sunny days grilling outside?  Don’t they shout out all that is right with the world?  YES! YES! GIVE ME BRATS! they scream, which is why the marketing department of the New England Patriots has chosen them to be the team’s official game food.  In a move to reap more profits from loyal fans, the Patriots are sponsoring their “own” line of meats – “four lines of bratwurst, three of sausage, and two of hot dogs”, as reported in the Boston Globe. But where does New England get these wonder meats from? – You guessed it, WISCONSIN!!! Now that’s a kicker.  Our Packers didn’t make it to the Superbowl, but our brats sure did!

The Patriots’ marketing staff taste-tested 10 varieties of brats from meat suppliers throughout the U.S.  They report that, “the new line immediately stood out, said David Wheeler, executive director of food and beverage for Gillette Stadium. “I remember thinking that I loved the flavor,” he said, “It was juicy.”

These flavorful, juicy brats have been made ‘the Old World Way’ in Milwaukee, Wisconsin since 1954.  Brewers and Bucks fans enjoy them at every game in Miller Park and the Bradley Center.  They are even the exclusive sausages sold at the Minnesota Twins baseball games!

And now these brats have been adopted as ‘their own’ by the New England Patriots.  The Patriots will be chowing down on them at their training facility, and their fans will be enjoying them in Gillette Stadium. You can get these brats and other meats made the Old World way from Wisconsinmade.com. Then even though Wisconsin’s Packers won’t be at your Superbowl party, the taste of Wisconsin will be there.
