Two things are true about avid at-home sports fans: They rarely miss their teams’ games on TV, and they like some eats and drinks while they watch the action.
With the college and pro football seasons looming, and baseball ongoing into October, Daina Falk’s new “The Hungry Fan’s Game Day Cookbook” looks like it’ll score big (Oxmoor House, $23).
Among its 165 recipes are the good (Texas toast brisket sandwich), the bad (Cracker Jack corn dogs) and the … . well, ugly in a good way (peanut butter-bacon burgers). Who wants a cocktail to go with those pot roast sliders? How about a “Beermosa” (a mimosa with brew in place of champagne). More at www.hungryfan.com.
