BRING ON THE WINGS

It’s time to get messy. A good wing is a great thing; a bad wing is just a travesty. Don’t bum your friends out—try Hill Country’s Wing Recipe. They are the perfect balance of sweet and spice, a mixture of chili powders, sugar, and mustard powder. Deliver big Texas flavor in your DC kitchen. Your friends won’t even see it coming.

BOMBARD THEM WITH APPETIZERS

Munching all game long is the best part of any party. Keep large groups full without breaking the bank by offering a large array of appetizers. It’s an easy way to make sure there is a little something for everyone. Try having at least 3-4 different dips with bready dippers, cheese and meat trays, and small easy-to-make finger foods. Mason Dixie’s take on Pimento Cheese, is a major winner that is sure to please a crowd.

GET CHEESY

Our motto? There’s no such thing as too much cheese. Hill Country’s super easy Shiner Queso recipe takes cheese to a whole other level. Their secret? A beer or two. Your favorite vices all in one place. Let your guests indulge a little.

PACK IN THE FLAVOR

The carnivores come out on game day. The goal is to find great recipes that don’t require a lot of leg work, but pack a flavorful punch. Braising large, cheaper cuts of meat like pork shoulder or beef brisket can be flavorful and filling, and only require you to season, set, and forget it. It’s so easy. Try Mason Dixie’s recipe for Tomato Braised Pork.

BUST OUT THE CARBS

No food coma is complete without a heavy dose of carbs. Try serving jambalaya and pasta bakes, or stuffed breads like a spinach dip bread roll. And when all else fails–pick up a box of frozen Mason Dixie biscuits at your local Whole Foods or Union Kitchen Grocery. All you have to do is throw them on a baking sheet and serve. So simple. So delicious.
