Just because you’re eating something greasy and stuffed with cheese doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be made right. Blown-out mozzarella sticks? Under-cheddared grilled cheese sandwiches? We all deserve better than that.
In that spirit, we’ve collected all the recipes you need for a glorious night of boozing (or restorative morning after). Think beer-battered onion rings (that won’t let the onion slip out of its casing), must-eat corndogs, and hot wings to soak up all the 2 a.m. beer and Netflix you can handle.
