Easy Dishes for Super Bowl Sunday

Game day is quickly approaching. As a football fan who loves to eat, I came up with three simple recipes that will add a taste of the wild to your Super Bowl game day experience!

No Super Bowl party would be complete without dishes upon dishes filled with treats for friends and family. Why not head to the wild side and create dishes with wild game that is perhpas still in the freezer from last season? Not only will this serve as a freezer-dump, but will be a great showcase of the many things you the cook can do with wild game…and will certainly add a spark to the party!
