Getting together before the game with friends and family is as much a part of football as the band, the cheerleaders or the kickoff itself. And, gathering without good food is like starting the game without the ball.

Each week throughout the 2017 season, Lindy’s will feature a recipe that will be a favorite with family, friends and fans. Recipes are provided by U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish.
