New England Nachos for Game Day

I have my feelings about who is going to win Sunday’s big game (obvi).  I also have feelings about game day food.  Good feelings.  If you’re looking to win at snacks, I’ve got you covered with these New England Nachos.  They’re salty, tangy + fresh and (crowd) friendly… just like my favorite New Englanders.

It’s worth noting that I ate these for lunch the other day (and called it recipe testing #noshame)… so really, you can serve these any old time.  But they’ll taste especially good when our team is winning. 

Per usual, all measurements are sort of free-wheeling.  You can’t really go wrong here.  These are nachos, not soufflés.  Recipe is vegetarian, gluten free and serves 8.

  • 1 bag of Cape Cod potato chips 
  • Approximately 6 oz. local blue cheese (I used Jasper Hill Bayle Hazen Blue + Great Hill Blue… basically, cheese heaven)
  • 1/2 c. cranberry relish or sauce (I used Stonewall Kitchen’s New England Cranberry Relish)
  • 2 tsp. fresh chives, chopped
  • 2 tsp. fresh curly parsley, chopped

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Arrange potato chips in a single-ish layer on the parchment and set aside.
  3. With a fork, gently crumble the blue cheese and sprinkle over the potato chips.
  4. Spoon cranberry relish over the cheese and chips.
  5. Bake until the cheese is bubbly (and/or you’ve lost the will to wait any longer), approximately 5 minutes.
  6. Give your New England Nachos a few minutes to cool.
  7. Top with fresh herbs and serve to your favorite fans (or… just like, yourself).
