Make sure everyone can eat your game day spread by including veggie burgers from NoBull. The Charlottesville, Virginia, company got its start when Crissanne Raymond created a veggie burger recipe everyone loved. In 2011, she and her daughters, Heather and Elizabeth, turned that recipe into a business. The lentil- and brown rice-based burgers are made with organic spinach, caramelized onions and other ingredients, and come in five flavors. The burgers hold their shape perfectly on the grill, or you can crumble them into queso dip or a big pot of chili. We set out some for sampling, and carnivores and vegans alike were impressed by the rich flavor and the fact that they were enjoying a burger made with ingredients everyone recognized.
$5.99 per 8-ounce package of two burgers. Available at Whole Foods Market and nobullburger.com
Brioche pretzel rolls
If your game day spread includes a sandwich bar, we recommend St. Pierre’s side-split brioche pretzel rolls with a pretzel glaze and sesame-seed topping, which are baked in France. The website offers recipes for specialty sandwiches, including Reubens and grinders, but we also liked them in simple warm sandwiches, with just good mustard and some melted cheese, like Swiss or cheddar.
$5.48 per six-roll package. Available at Walmart. stpierrebakery.com.
