During the Super Bowl, while my husband is in front of the television yelling about bad play calls, I’ll be in the kitchen enjoying some of my favorite Super Bowl recipes. I’m going to make chips and dips, onion rings, jalapeño poppers and chicken wings just to name a few. Some of our recipes for these favorite snacks use an easy, mess free oven-fry technique that gives food a crispy golden crust and moist interior. It tastes like fried food, but it’s better for you.

Like bacon and maple syrup, bacon and jam on toast satisfies all my salty-sweet cravings. Peanut butter is also a worthy pairing as evidenced by the Elvis sandwich, which always combines peanut butter and banana but often includes bacon;
