Trista Sutter & Betty Crocker Announce Fan Fare, Recipes Inspired by the Fall TV Line-up

On behalf of the one and only Betty Crocker, I would like to introduce you to Fan Fare, a collection of fun new recipe ideas to enjoy while watching your favorite shows this fall. From talent competitions to vampires to glee clubs, this fall’s most anticipated TV shows have inspired these delicious and fun ideas – from desserts to snacks to drinks – that are perfect for getting together with family and friends.

Betty Crocker is also teaming up with reality TV star Trista Sutter to speak on all of the excitement of the fall TV season, including the drama-filled guilty pleasures from housewives to bachelorettes that inspired Betty Crocker’s recipe for Trista’s favorite, Boxed Wine Cupcakes.

TV Genre: Center Stage – Talent competitions are in the spotlight, as rising stars sing and dance their way to fame and fortune. But while contestants may come and go, it’s the judges – both spicy and sweet – whose personalities really keep us tuning in each week.

Recipe: You Be the Judge Popcorn Mix Customize these popcorn mixes with a variety of flavors that bring personality to the table. Which one is your favorite – Sugary Sweet, Angry Jerk, Worldly Spice or Flaky Nut? You be the judge!

Viewing Party Idea: Make your get-together with friends really pop with flavorful, fizzy homemade sodas to complement Betty Crocker’s four popcorn mix-in varieties. Visit www.bettycrocker.com/fanfare for directions on how to make your own soda.

TV Genre: Geek Chic – The geeks are suddenly chic. It feels like the socially awkward but super-smart set is all over the small screen this fall, seeming to speak a language all their own. What they lack in social skills they make up for in humor – which keeps us rooting for them even when we don’t understand a word they’re saying.

Recipe: Solving for Pi Cheesecake It’s a simple equation – mango + raspberry + cheesecake + pie equals delicious. Take a cue from the molecular gastronomy trend and scoop up this deconstructed dessert that literally “pops” with flavor.

TV Genre: Food Fight – Food reality shows fire up the competitive spirit with innovative challenges that push cuisines – and tempers – to the breaking point. Mix in some spicy personalities, along with a “secret ingredient,” for an experience that will leave you hungry for more.

Recipe: Korean BBQ Kimchi Quesadillas This winning food truck-inspired dish loads up a Mexican quesadilla with the flavor of Korean barbecue. And what’s the secret ingredient? Kimchi.

TV Genre: It’s a Guy Thing – Men, men, men, men! Guys are definitely having a moment, as reflected on the fall TV schedule. These men are guys’ guys – whether hanging out in their “man caves,” at the game, or at the bar. But however frustrating they may be to the women in their lives, it’s their funny antics that keep us tuning in each week.

Recipe: Double Meat Dudewich This manly sandwich is all about extremes. Two meats – beer-soaked barbecued pork and savory smoked sausage – are piled high on an onion bun with coleslaw and pickles to top it off. It might take two (or more) men to polish off this messy but awesome creation.
