While I am not looking forward to the colder weather, wearing a sweater, or taking IN my lawn furniture, I am looking forward to football Sundays. This Sunday at 1pm, our Patriots play the Dolphins in Miami. The football FOOD SEASON is here!

What Is Football Food?

No one really knows when football food was invented. What we do know is this:

  1. To consume it, it must take little or NO effort
  2. The loading into our mouth, must be a one handed event, the other balancing dish on our lap.
  3. Let’s make it bite size, if possible, easy to find, so we NEVER take our eyes off the 72 inch screen.
  4. Must have LOTS of flavor and satisfaction, especially when we are losing.
  5. It must last for four quarters, or 3 hours and 12 minutes.
  6. Not a must, but it’s better if it’s re-heatable.
  7. Good football food should make you sweat
  8. Deep fried, preferable, except in Weston and Wellesley
  9. It has to work with a mustard dip
  10. Did I mention it must be deep fried?

Football Fridays!

Tune into Football Fridays with one of the Patriots radio voices, Scott Zolak, with Bob LBF and Brian Friday mornings at 8:35am on 1057 WROR. 

So, we get the X’s and Z’o’s of football with Scott Zolak, plus a lot more inside stuff that you may not get on a regular game broadcast.

The List

So as New England’s future #1, 300 word blogger, it is my duty to inspire all with football food ideas from (insert echo sound effect) around the globe. Take a look at my list below. Are we ready! The football FOOD SEASON is here!

Our Favorite Dunkin DONUTS

I always wondered: what are OUR favorite Dunkin Donuts? There MUST be a poll somewhere asking America what is #1. After I all, I heard that America runs on Dunkin.

The First Dunkin

According to A Dozen Things You Didn’t Know About Dunkin

The First Dunkin’ Donuts Restaurant is Still in Operation: When founder William Rosenberg opened his first coffee and donut shop in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1948, it was originally named Open Kettle and served coffee, pastries and sandwiches. 

WOW! It started in our own backyard. Maybe that’s why

we love Dunkin so much.

Why Is There A Hole?

It starts with the way they were cooked. From htn.com:

There are a couple of common theories about the origin of the doughnut’s hole. One of the most popular credits American seafarer Hanson Gregory with inventing the donut’s hole in 1847 while aboard a lime-trading ship. He was just 16 years old at the time.

As the story goes, Gregory wasn’t happy with the doughy consistency of the fried cakes served on the ship. Although the outsides and the edges were crisp, the centres of the donuts were always greasy and doughy.

Gregory suggested punching a hole in the middle of the fried cakes, so that the insides of the cakes would cook as evenly as the outsides. Experts believe that this reason makes sense, because of the way that doughnuts are cooked.

When dough is placed in a fryer, the outsides and edges will cook quickly, because they’re exposed to the hot oil. To fully cook the insides of the dough, the dough would have to stay in the oil for a longer time, which would lead to the outsides becoming burnt.

Punching a hole in the middle of the dough, however, allows the insides and the outsides to cook evenly, creating a perfect doughnut. There may be another reason for the holes in doughnuts though.

Doughnuts became popular in America around the same time bagels were becoming popular. Bakers and street vendors would often sell bagels stacked on long sticks or strung on a long rope. Some people believe that the holes in doughnuts allowed them to be sold in a similar way. 

Dunkin Radio

By the way, the next you’re in a Dunkin, listen for me, Jaybeau. I’m the news guy, reading the news coming over the speakers in about 5000 Dunkin locations across America.  No, I don’t get paid in donuts.

So, now that I am craving these magical fried circles of wonder, let’s share our favorite Dunkin DONUTS, according to Mashup.com!
