Artichoke Dip with Crispy Shallots
Try this tasty Artichoke Dip with Crispy Shallots from Food & Wine, which is the perfect shareable, dip-able app, perfect for pre-game festivities.
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for frying
2 large shallots—1 minced, 1 thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
One 9-ounce package frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and drained
1/4 cup dry white wine
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded Gruyère cheese (3 ounces)
2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon Tabasco
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Kosher salt and Freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup panko
Toast points and assorted crudités, such as blanched broccoli or romanesco florets, red bell pepper strips and fennel wedges, for serving
1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a medium skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons of olive oil until shimmering. Add the minced shallot and garlic and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the artichokes and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 5 minutes. Add the wine and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes; let the mixture cool.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese with the Gruyère, parsley, lemon juice, Tabasco and 1/2 cup of the Parmigiano. Fold in the artichoke mixture and season the dip with salt and pepper. Scrape into a shallow 3-cup baking dish and smooth the surface. Sprinkle the panko and remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmigiano on top. Bake for about 20 minutes, until heated through and lightly golden on top.
3. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, heat 1/4 inch of olive oil until shimmering. Add the sliced shallot and fry over moderate heat, stirring, until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried shallot to paper towels to drain and cool. Sprinkle the fried shallot on top of the artichoke dip and serve with toast points and crudités.

Makes about 60
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup hot pepper sauce (such as Frank’s)
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 large garlic cloves, crushed
1 2×1″ piece of ginger, peeled, sliced
5 pounds chicken wings, tips removed, drumettes and flats separated
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
For buffalo sauce:
Mix first 4 ingredients in a medium bowl; let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in hot sauce; keep warm.
For ginger-soy glaze:
Bring all ingredients and 1/4 cup water to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring to dissolve honey. Reduce heat to low; simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 1/4 cup, 7–8 minutes. Strain into a medium bowl. Let sit for 15 minutes to thicken slightly.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Set a wire rack inside each of 2 large rimmed baking sheets. Place all ingredients in a large bowl; toss to coat. Divide wings between prepared racks and spread out in a single layer.
Bake wings until cooked through and skin is crispy, 45–50 minutes.
Line another rimmed baking sheet with foil; top with a wire rack. Add half of wings to ginger-soy glaze and toss to evenly coat. Place wings in a single layer on prepared rack and bake until glaze is glossy and lightly caramelized, 8–10 minutes.
Toss remaining half of wings in Buffalo sauce. Serve immediately (no need to bake).
These beef sliders are packed with flavor. You can’t go wrong with tasty sliders. Ina Garten created tasty beef sliders on the grill worthy of recreating for your guests, take a look here for all details.
2 pounds premium ground beef (80 percent lean and 20 percent fat)
1 tablespoon good Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons good olive oil, plus extra for brushing the grill
1 teaspoon chopped thyme leaves
3 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 ounces grated Gruyere
12 small Brioche buns
4 ounces baby arugula
3 medium tomatoes, sliced in 1/8-inch-thick rounds
2 small red onions, sliced in 1/8-inch-thick rounds
Ketchup, for serving
Build a charcoal fire or heat a gas grill.
Place the ground beef in a large bowl and add the mustard, olive oil, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper. Mix gently with a fork to combine, taking care not to compress the ingredients. Shape the meat into 12 (2-inch) patties of equal size and thickness.
When the grill is medium-hot, brush the grill grate with oil to keep the sliders from sticking. Place the sliders on the grill and cook for 4 minutes. Turn the sliders over with a spatula and cook for another 4 to 6 minutes, until medium-rare, or cook longer if you prefer the sliders more well done. For the last 2 minutes of cooking time, place 1/2-ounce Gruyere on the top of each burger and close the grill lid. Remove the sliders to a platter and cover with foil.
Slice the buns in half crosswise and toast the halves cut side down on the grill.
Divide the baby arugula among the 12 bottom buns, top each with a slider, and finish with a slice of tomato and red onion. Cover with the top of the bun and serve hot with ketchup.
