Four NBC Bay Area anchors share their game day recipes

What to eat while watching the game? We asked NBC Bay Area anchors about their game day programs, whether they were watching a college game or watching the Super Bowl at home.

Jessica Aguirre’s party plantain

“I am a Cuban, which means that every party and every occasion will be celebrated with a different plantain side dish or appetizer,” said NBC Bay Area anchor Jessica Aguirre. “On Thanksgiving, we have two deep-fried plantains, also called tostones. At Noche Buena (Christmas Eve), we will pair your classic plantain with lechon (roasted piglet), and on Easter , We mixed it with sweet plantain. You got my “plantain” drift. For the Super Bowl, we went all out to launch the’party plantain’.”

This recipe is suitable for 10 football fans.

raw material

8 super mature plantains

Vegetable oil

Kosher salt

sour cream

Sprigs of parsley


Trim the ends of the plantain. Peel down the seams with a knife, then cut the plantain diagonally.

Wash the parsley and cut into sprigs. Set aside to dry.

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Wait until the oil is hot! Fill your frying pan with plantains in batches, leaving room to flip them, and then start browning them. You want them to be golden on the outside, but super soft on the inside; if they cook too fast, turn down the heat. For the next batch of work, place the finished plantains on a tray lined with paper towels to drain.

When ready to serve, place the plantains on a tray, season them with salt, and then add a ball of sour cream and a sprig of parsley to each plantain. Let the plantain processing begin!

Blue Cheese Fillet Filet Steak by Raj Mathai

“I usually work in the Super Bowl on Sunday, but for a few years I enjoyed the game at home,” said NBC Bay Area anchor Mattei. “I have a favorite dish-it happens to be related to 49 people! Years ago, a local butcher from Redwood City told me that Joe Montana used to come to his store to buy filet mignon. Montana Nazhou will dig a small hole in the fish fillet and stuff it with blue cheese. I improved the recipe.

“Dig a small hole in each steak. Fill it with blue cheese and quail eggs (or oysters). Wrap the holes with bacon and secure them together with toothpicks. Grill to desired ripeness. Serve with a kick Ass red wine!”

King Janelle’s Instant Pot Cheese Spinach and Artichoke Dip

NBC Bay Area anchor Janelle Wang used Instant Pot to make this game day a classic, from grocery bag to party ready in 30 minutes. She said, if you like something a little spicy, use Pepper Jack instead of Monterey Jack.
