Ohio State vs Oregon: College Football Championship 2015 Recipes from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

The inaugural college football championship game is coming on Monday. Like you, we’re interested to see who wins. Two great teams (Oregon and Ohio State) will battle it out, and as a nation who loves crowning a champion, we thought a few themed dishes were in order. No matter which side of the gridiron you’re rooting for, we’ve got your snack table covered. We’ve developed a delicious (and easy) slow cooker recipe for each team, based on local treats and traditions.

Ohio State vs Oregon: College Football Championship 2015 Recipes from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Oregon is the home of the Marionberry – or the Marion blackberry – which we used in a simple barbecue sauce over turkey meatballs. The meatballs are baked first, then added to a barbecue sauce made with marionberry jam in a slow cooker. If Marionberry jam is not available (You should be able to find it at Whole Foods, specialty grocers or Amazon.com.), blackberry jam can be substituted.

Ohio State vs Oregon: College Football Championship 2015 Recipes from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Ohio State Buckeye fans love big tailgating parties and they really love their tailgating food. You’ll find peanut butter and chocolate buckeye candies and plenty of wings and dips. For a more filling main-course option, we thought bratwursts in beer would be stadium appropriate. First, the brats are browned, then added to a slow cooker with peppers, onions and beer. We used a nice dark stout, but feel free to use whatever beer brings your team the best luck.

Your slow cooker is just as likely to be needed away from home as it is at home. That’s why Stay or Go® Slow Cookers feature secure, clip-tight lids for spill-resistant travel. Even better, the full-grip handles make carrying them to and from the car a simple, stress-free matter.

In addition to offering modern convenience, the Set & Forget® Programmable Slow Cooker has three choices for easy, automatic cooking: program, probe and manual mode. For the cook who is busy all day but wants a home-cooked dinner at night, a slow cooker is the answer. And with this one, technology takes a big leap forward from the outdated slow cookers found in yesterday’s kitchens.

 



Slow Cooker Korean Chicken Wings from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

With fall in full swing and football on TV, we’ve been doing a lot of weekend slow cooking to develop the easiest and tastiest appetizer recipes we can. We love the simplicity of adding a few ingredients to a slow cooker and letting them benefit from long, slow cooking. Meanwhile, we’ll find our lucky jerseys and make a last-minute trip to the store for extra chips and soda.

Simply  mix the sauce in the crock, then add the chicken wings to it. The wings will cook for a few hours, and you won’t have to tend to it again until the time is up. When the wings are done, place them under the broiler to crisp up the skin and they’re ready to serve.

These wings are great, especially for those who find spicy Buffalo wings too hot or intense. They have a mild-to-medium, sweet taste with a blend of Korean flavors like honey, soy, sesame and ginger. You can eat your fair share without burning your mouth, and you don’t even need a separate dipping sauce – though they are good with the traditional ranch or blue cheese side.

If you have leftovers, though we can’t imagine that’s possible, just save them in the fridge and reheat under the broiler the next day (Sunday followed by Monday night football, anyone?). They’ll be just as flavorful as they were the day before. Happy snacking, and we hope your team wins (unless they’re playing ours).

Easiest Ever Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Baby back ribs are my ultimate guilty pleasure food. I grew to love them because my dad always took us out for ribs when I was a kid, and that age, there is nothing better than eating something messy with your hands. In fact, it’s still a lot of fun, which is why these baby back ribs are perfect for a simple weeknight dinner, a fun Sunday supper or a snack during a football game. They are bursting with barbecue flavor and are super simple. That’s right, these baby backs are easier to make at home than it is to drive to the local barbecue hot spot – and cheaper to boot.

The first thing you need to do is make your BBQ spice rub, which is just a blend of spices and seasonings you probably have in your pantry. If you plan on making these a few times during football season, you can make a bunch of the rub now and save it in an airtight container for use down the road. (Bonus: The rub is also tasty on chicken!)

Cut up the racks and fit them into your slow cooker, then pour barbecue sauce over the ribs and let them cook low and slow. This dish is perfect for workday cooking, so it would be easy for Monday or Thursday night football food or an easy after-work weeknight meal for the family.

When the ribs are perfectly tender, but not quite falling off the bone, you can remove them from the slow cooker and stick them under your oven’s broiler for a crisp, straight-from-the-smoker exterior and a juicy, tender bite inside. Brush the ribs with the leftover barbecue sauce and they’re ready to serve.

You can arrange a set on everyone’s plates with some macaroni and cheese and baked beans or cut them into individual pieces and put them on a big platter so people can grab them as they eat. You should probably try one first, though, just to make sure they are okay to eat. And then another to make sure they are perfectly seasoned. And maybe one last rib because you did all the work. What? There wasn’t much work? They’ll never know you followed the easiest recipe ever…
