Ravens Recipes for the Super Bowl

Crab Tots 2013

Ravens fans, we have a special treat for you. We’ve got three popular recipes straight from M&T Bank Stadium Executive Chef Joe Bachman. Crab tots, crab dip, crab cakes and a steak sandwich. Can you dig it?

“The biggest football game of the year is also one of the largest food consumption days of the year, so we wanted to give fans recipes to create special menus for their parties this year,” said Bachman. “Baltimore is well known for its delicious crab, so it was an obvious choice to share our favorite recipes that highlight our signature hometown flavor.”

They are a staple around here for summer get-togethers as well as for winter snow days. This recipe contains both regular and faster pressure-cooker instructions.
