Super Bowl Sammies: The Peyton Manwich vs. The Ham Newton



I had soooo much fun coming up with these recipes for my segment on Good Day Atlanta!  Little secret here, when the Super Bowl comes around, I’m usually far more interested in what the menu is– than what teams are playing.  Sandwiches are one of my favorite things on the planet– so in the spirit of “SUPER BOWL,” here are some SUPER sized Sammies paying tribute to the quarterbacks on each team:  Peyton Manning from the Denver Broncos inspired The Peyton Manwich and Cam Newton from the Carolina Panthers inspired the HAM Newton.  See what I did there??

Since Colorado is famous for both buffalo and green chilies, I thought I would add some cheesy, crunchy glory and create the love child between a burger and burrito– Burgerito, anyone?  First, you start with 2 buffalo burgers topped with green chilies and pepper jack cheese.  Then, you wrap the burgers (buns and all) with a large flour tortilla, then top with cheese, and bake till the cheese is melty and the burrito is crunchy.  Then add green chili sauce and jalapenos.  Oh, yeah, meet the Peyton Manwich….



Gooey, cheesy, crunchy yum!

unnamed-9 Jim ‘N Nick’s motto is “We Give you Our Best.”  If this isn’t the best, I don’t know what is….Um, HELLLLO DELICIOUS.  This is the Mac Daddy of BBQ platters.  Meet the Mr. Jim Tailgate To Go Platter.

unnamed-3Hungry yet?  We’re talking classic pulled pork, pulled chicken, beef brisket, turkey breast, pork hot links, spare ribs, baby back ribs AND you get three sides plus some fluffy cheese biscuits.  All that scrumptiousness for $85.  This is “GETINMYMOUTHRAWTNOW” kinda good.  OMG.

What I love about Jim ‘N Nick’s is that they smoke their meat for 24 hours and everything is made from scratch.  The joint doesn’t even have freezers, they use such fresh ingredients!  I’m a huge BBQ fan and this will not disappoint.  It’s supposed to feed 6-8 people, but I don’t think this would last in my house between JP and me for more than an hour.  #bbqbingers
