Chef John's Bacon Jam

Rating: 4.63 stars
This takes some time to make, and there is expert-level stirring involved, but what a small price when you consider the final results. Whether you do this for your Super Bowl® party or another festive occasion, I hope you give this amazing bacon jam a try soon.

Sausage-Stuffed Mushrooms

Rating: 4.43 stars
Just something a little different from the clam-based stuffing(s). Basic recipe you can change to suit your personal tastes. I usually cook and stir the mushrooms in butter before stuffing, but that's just my preference. The guys LOVE these during football/dart nights.

Skillet Lasagna Dip with Pasta Chips

Crispy Pork Belly

Thanks to social media, food bloggers, and celebrity chefs with too much time on their hands, pork belly was/is all the rage.
