There’s one thing for certain no matter if you’re rooting for the Panthers or the Broncos this weekend: indulgence. Super Bowl Sunday may as well be America’s official cheat day for diets with more than enough appetizers and, if you partake, plenty of booze. So in the spirit of indulgence, we say go big and throw a Hail Mary.
Here are our top six Super Bowl recipes that mesh food and beer all in one:

What’s the second best thing in the world after beer? Bacon. But since combining alcohol and pig fat is likely to take a toll on your health, you should add a vegetable to balance it out.

Break out the grill for this one. You’ll simmer the sausages in a pan of lager before charring them to perfection, leaving you with fat juicy brats.
Beer and Cheddar Soup

Let’s face it. Chicago winters are bone-chillingly brutal. Fortunately, we all know the secret to forgetting about the cold is hot soup and a slight buzz. And with beer and cheddar soup, you’ll kill two birds with one rich, cheesy stone.

If your team wins, you eat it do celebrate. If your team loses, you eat it to cope. Nothing caps off the night better than a decadent chocolate cake infused with Irish blood a.k.a. Guinness and Baileys.
