While some will be mourning the loss of summer Fridays and lamenting the return of early wake-up times to get the kids to school, so many others are rejoicing over the start of football season — afternoons spent on the sofas with friends and family over some of sports’ best rivalries and always hearty comfort foods. If you’re headed to the stadium, check out Food Network’s all-new lineup straight from the chefs at Food Network Kitchens.
Seven NFL stadiums are serving up delicious offerings like sloppy joes, hot hogs, brisket sandwiches and mac and cheese. The signature sloppy joes are a drool-worthy combination of ground beef and slab bacon chunks with slow-cooked tomatoes topped with shredded pepper jack cheese and fried onions. Want potato chips on top of that, too? There are more than 10 toppings available for the sloppy joe sandwich so you can build your own. The hot dogs are topped with baked beans, mustard and corn chips. Don’t forget to snag a locally inspired version in each stadium.
