When it comes to our travels, we aim to be citizens of the world. But when it comes to the Olympics, we're all about supporting Team USA. While we'd love to be in Brazil for the Olympics, we're watching the play-by-play from the comfort of our homes.
So we say gather some friends, gear up in your best stars and stripes, and watch it all live. To get you inspired, here 10 All-American recipes to throw an Olympics viewing party in style!
One of our favorite classic American appetizers is the Southern staple of pickled shrimp. Loaded with herbs, lemons, and chiles, the only work required is to find the best shrimp you can then mix and marinate.
When it comes to being All-American, there is nothing more so than bison. And for entertaining, we make them into bite-sized sliders topped with spicy arugula whiskey onion—all you'll need is a Kentucky Mule Cocktail to wash it down!
As far as summertime sandwiches are concerned, it's hard to top the classic BLT. We like to make ours with super simple, super old-school cream biscuits, some sweet, salty brown sugar bacon, and the best tomatoes we can find.
