9 ‘Game of Thrones’ Recipes for the Ultimate Viewing Party
The final season of Game of Thrones is almost here…and it’s about damn time. After waiting this long for Daenerys to seize the Seven Kingdoms (we hope), only a spectacular viewing experience will do. So bring out the wine goblets and make a meal fit for the iron throne with these tasty recipes.
Avocado Deviled Eggs
This twist on a crowd-pleasing favorite adds flavor and gives your yolk boats a fun color—making them almost as pretty as Daenerys’s own dragon eggs.
Slow-Cooker Whole Chicken with Potatoes
It’s the Hound’s favorite—and ours, too. (Especially when we don’t have to lift a finger and make our Crock-Pot do all the work instead.)
Grilled Oysters with Chipotle Bourbon Butter
Arya Stark has come a long way since the days of selling mollusks on the streets of Braavos. For these luxurious bites, Coterie member Phoebe Lapine whips up a sweet and salty sauce that she smothers on the oysters before quickly cooking them on the grill or under the broiler.
Gluten-Free, Vegan Lemon Cake
We’ll admit that we have mixed feelings about Sansa Stark (she did want to marry Joffrey, after all), but we can’t fault her taste in dessert. This version uses a secret healthy ingredient (shh…it’s cauliflower) to create a light yet satisfying treat.
Pomegranate-Maple Glazed Lamb Chops
Impress your banquet guests with this fancy dish that’s actually super easy to make. Just pick up a jar of pomegranate molasses in the international aisle of your grocery store, whip up the tangy dressing and throw the meat on the grill for about eight minutes.
Crispy Roasted Artichokes
While you’re preparing the main course, let guests sample these golden artichoke hearts—a significantly better snack than the organs favored by the Dothrakis.
Cheater’s Italian Wedding Soup
Real talk: We’re still not over the Red Wedding. We are, however, very into this hearty soup that’s packed with Parmesan cheese, beans and meatballs.
No Westerosi worth his weight in gold dragon coins would pass up on a meat pie. This one’s made with tender beef (or lamb) and a rich tomato-based sauce before being topped with creamy mashed potatoes.
Who is Azor Ahai? Will the Walkers reach Winterfell? And is anyone going to point out that Jon and Dany are related? Yep, you’re definitely going to need a cocktail to calm your nerves. This refreshing ruby-red drink is just the ticket.
