Top 5 for Game Day!

Salmon Burgers with Homemade Tartar Sauce:

Okay! Seriously, I’m not big on watching football games and as a matter of fact, my friends laugh at me that I can’t name 5 of the top football players. Oh well, you can’t know everything!

But what I do know,  for almost everyone, non-sports fans included, Super Bowl Sunday is one of the great annual excuses for epic, marathon grubbing. To prep for game day, I gathered a few of my favorite recipes. What spread would be complete without chicken wings then you can add a little variety to the menu with Hamburger, Salmon burgers (keep it lite) and homemade potatoes chips all washed down with a great Skinny Watermelon Cocktail. Hey it’s Game Day!

Have a great weekend and Party on…
