Food Wishes Video Recipes: Rigatoni alla Genovese – Maybe the Best Meat Sauce You’ve Never Heard Of
(Recipe makes enough for 2 pounds of rigatoni... so I want to try it, halved, first, but probably could be a game night sauce!) Pancetta/salt pork, beef chuck, celery, carrot, tomato paste, bay leaf, white wine, and SIX POUNDS OF ONIONS. Also this takes 8-10 hours to cook.

Hot Dog Bar - How to Make a Hot Dog Bar + 8 Fancy Hot Dogs
EXTREMELY successful game night - this is definitely way more expensive than my usual stuff but will be a fun yearly event for sure. 7 people. Bought a pack of 5 nice fatter sausages, 6 decent beef dogs, 8 pack of Oscar Meyer beef dogs, and 8 pack of turkey dogs; ended up with 5 left over, much to my surprise. Probably banana peppers are perfectly sufficient for Chicago dogs. Buffalo dogs probably not worth the extra execution. I DO wish I didn't forget a sauerkraut option, so probably I'll swap those out next time. I just got a bag of coleslaw and made up half of it and used the other half as cabbage/lettuce option. Didn't do the grilled Mexican street corn dog or jalapeno apple slaw dog, though the latter sounds especially great. Grilled pineapple was good but I'm not sure it was popular enough that I couldn't trade it out if I did the jalapeno apple slaw (and BBQ sauce could go with coleslaw anyway).

Jambalaya Recipe -
Hooray! I'm happy with how this game out on my first jambalaya attempt ever for game night! I did 1.7 lbs chicken, ditched the red pepper flakes, and did half can tomato puree, .75 can Italian diced tomatoes. Sliced and sauteed the sausage in butter and oil in my normal pot, removed (next time do half slices instead). Sautéed the chicken breasts WHOLE, removed, nice fond, let them rest while I did the veggies, then cut them up. Added them all back in with a bunch of other stuff, and I added a bay leaf- and next time, this is the part I'll probably skip; I'll let everything BUT the chicken simmer together for those extra 10 minutes, I think, and then put the chicken in for just like, 1. I'll also use more hot sauce next time, I think, and reduce the salt... the sausage was spicy and salty, but the rest of the dish was just salty and just sliiightly less flavorful than I wanted. Rice amount was perfect even with the increased chicken and tomatoes. Fixed alongside a bag of rosemary olive oil cornbread from HEB (homg) and a thing of coleslaw. I think that would have comfortably fed a game night of 6, and was a little tight for a game night of 7.

Beef Stroganoff for Instant Pot® Recipe -
Per reviews, use beef broth instead, and maybe half soy sauce half worcestershire sauce.

UPDATE: Made it for game night and thought it was great! Will definitely add it to the semi-regular rotation. I did the worcestershire sauce and beef broth substitutions, added cream cheese, and cut up 3lbs beef chuck (it was really good... but I think for future game nights I should just buy stew meat). I also increased it to "11 servings", which ended up being about 7 dinner servings for adults. I cooked 2 14oz packages of noodles - about a half of a bag outside of the pot since they didn't fit - which turned out to be maybe a third of a bag more than I needed. So I could probably just cook as many noodles as fit in the pot and be okay for 7 servings.

Eggplant Sausage Casserole Recipe | Taste of Home
Pretty sure "makes 12 servings" is bullshit, but maybe if I 1.5x it and make it in two separate casserole dishes it'll work? (Could even do one with veggie sausage, turkey sausage, or no sausage.)

Green Chili Chicken Pressure Cooker Recipe | Serious Eats
Combine chicken, tomatillos, poblano peppers, Anaheim peppers, Serrano peppers, onion, garlic, cumin, and a big pinch of salt in a pressure cooker. Heat over high heat until gently sizzling, then seal pressure cooker, bring to high pressure, and cook for 15 minutes. Release pressure.

Using tongs, transfer chicken pieces to a bowl and set aside. Add cilantro and fish sauce to remaining contents of pressure cooker. Blend with a hand blender or in a standing blender and season to taste with salt. Return chicken to sauce, discarding skin and bones and shredding if desired. Transfer to a serving platter, garnish with chopped cilantro, and serve immediately with tortillas and lime wedges.

Food Wishes Video Recipes: Caldo Verde – My Green Soup Redux
THIS IS DELICIOUS, except wow the miracle happen and I made it TOO salty. GOSH.

I did this with $5 5.5oz of chorizo, 1.5 red onions, 2 russet potatoes, and 1 bunch of kale. It was like, 5-6 meals for me? I wish I had more kale, and possibly the salt wouldn't have been as much of an issue with a different/better sausage. IDK. Like I said, still great, and would totally work for a pork-friendly game night with about 1.5 hours of cooking time.

Next game night: okay, so making it before was fine, BUT. Next time, if there even MIGHT be more than 4 people, just suck it up, buy 2 packages of chorizo and use 5 potatoes and 1.5-2 bunches of kale, okay? Yeesh. Also, Betsy, 3 pounds of potatoes is 3 large potatoes, not 2. Also CHOP THE KALE SMALLER THAN YOU THINK, OKAY, THEN SMALLER AGAIN. ALSO DON'T OVERCOOK IT.

Food Wishes Video Recipes: Chicken Parmesan Casserole 2012 – New HD Version of the Most Popular Chicken Recipe on the Internet
Yummm. Basically a dump recipe (he says that browning the breasts is optional), dump chicken breasts, tomato sauce, cheese, croutons, more cheese, bake. Cooks for 35-45 minutes, so if I had all the ingredients out I could have this ready in about an hour for game night!

Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala - Budget Bytes
Low for 6 hours, so I could probably do it for game night if I turned it on at lunch.

Update: Cooked it for myself using the Instant Pot! SHOCKINGLY good, though hey, Betsy, when she says you should add more garam masala if yours is old and weak, MAYBE REMEMBER THAT YOURS IS OLD AND WEAK. Also, don't be a coward, brown yours to the same degree as hers. Anyway, yeah, if you go home at noon to turn this on it'd totally work.

UPDATE: Did it for game night, in the Instant Pot! Started it on normal slow cooker around noon, turned it up to high when I got home about 4:30 and it was perfect textures by 6. And AGAIN, Betsy, at least do 1.5 times the spices you think you need and get fresh garam masala, omfg. Also, .5lbs chicken per person, idiot. And add enough salt at the end!!! And don't forget basmati rice!! And actually, really, you should just fix this the night before, then move it into a pot for reheating so you can fix sufficient rice in the Instant Pot.
