The competition is heating up as the Super Bowl approaches — not because of the actual football game — because of the amazing party food.
The TODAY anchors all have their favorite dishes they always bring to Super Bowl parties and, of course, they all believe theirs is the best.
So Al Roker, Hoda Kotb, Craig Melvin, Carson Daly and Savannah Guthrie are going head-to-head with their favorite game-day grub — and you get to be the judge of which recipe takes home the win. Needless to say, the only utensils you'll need are your fingers.
Craig loves wings, but Buffalo sauce is not his thing (gasp!); he prefers to flavor his wings with an Asian-inspired barbecue sauce that includes soy sauce, rice vinegar and sesame oil, with some brown sugar for sweetness. You're going to want to keep the napkins close for these sticky snacks.
Al also loves himself some wings (specifically these Spicy Lacquered Chicken Wings) but his go-to Super Bowl snack comes in, well, a bowl. He takes inspiration from the South with his pimento cheese dip. His simple, one-bowl recipe that mixes cheddar, pimentos, mayo, Sriracha and onion, might be the easiest (and cheesiest!) dish you'll serve to guests.
Hoda is a fan of dipping, too, but she'd rather use pigs in a blanket than chips or crackers to dip. She steps up her pigs-in-a-blanket game by using mustard-brushed croissant dough to wrap them up, then dunks them in ketchup.
Carson, perhaps unfairly, takes a page out of wife Siri's book with her famous sticky ham sandwiches. Packed with ham and Swiss cheese, then coated in a buttery mustard sauce on sweet Hawaiian rolls, they're little bites of crowd-pleasing, handheld heaven.
Whether or not she takes home the overall title, Savannah definitely wins the messy award, as her snack of choice is nachos loaded up with queso (made with Velveeta and ground beef, but she also loves Jenna Bush Hager's recipe!), refried beans, diced tomatoes and cilantro.
