As football fans prepared to watch the many opening day games this weekend, one common question was asked in every household. What are we going to eat? The Food Network compiled a list of what the fan-favorite item in each state is, that pairs perfectly with football games.
In this feature, many local elements were considered when selecting the football food for each market across the country. Food (and beverage) is a universal must-have that can unite fans of various teams, even when they square off against each other. For example, a large tray of overloaded nachos would be served for all gathered around the TV to share, regardless of which team they are rooting for. Perhaps you were at the bar or a get-together for the Patriots vs. Eagles game. Was the platter of chicken wings served for only Pats fans (though that’s not a bad idea)?
The food choice enhances your gameday experience. It adds to the excitement and anticipation of those four hours each week when you sit and watch the big game.
Here, the Food Network recognized that love for gametime food, while also considering the local flavors of your home state. When you put that together, the result is a fan-favorite football food with a hometown flavor. It’s as unique to your market as the logo on your team’s helmet.
What is the fan-favorite football food in New England?
Fish and Chips
Fish and chips combine nicely with a pint of draft beer. It is a plate that can be ordered at your favorite sports pub, picked up for take-out, or made fresh at home. Better yet, the Smokehouse Grill within Gillette Stadium serves fish and chips. So you can eat your New England fan-favorite football food while taking in the gameday experience live.
