Your old favorite (and new favorites) shows are back this fall. Here’s every food you’ll need to fully enjoy the new episodes, whether binge-watching them on your DVR, or watching them live. From Scandal (my personal favorite) to Nashville, I’ve got you covered. Happy watching and happy eating.
Bob’s Burgers (Fox – Sundays at 7:30 pm)
For the new season of Bob’s Burgers, channel your inner grill master and whip up — you guessed it — burgers. Enjoy the delicious American classic and top with your favorite condiments and veggies. If you need help grilling, we got you covered.
Scream Queens (Fox – Tuesdays at 10 pm)
Enjoy this new series, which is set in a sorority house in a fictional university, with every college student’s go-to food: ramen. Dress up this casual meal with an egg, fresh veggies, and some meat.
The Mindy Project (Hulu – Tuesdays)
The charming, quirky Mindy Lahiri is finally back on the silver screen, so what better way to celebrate than to eat snacks in her honor? Engage in Mindy’s desires and delve into a donut. But, skip the line at Dunkin’ or Krispy Kreme and make your own at home. Build your own toppings and glazes, and dive in.
Survivor (CBS – Wednesdays at 8 pm)
You can feel like you’re out in the wild with the contestants when you snack on fresh berries and nuts. Make your own trail mix using dried fruits and nuts of your choice for a natural, healthy, and satisfying snack.
Modern Family (ABC – Wednesdays at 9 pm)
Enjoy a snack just as eccentric as your favorite family lights up your TV screens. The salty-sweet combo of these chocolate pretzel bites are the perfect snack for the hilarious comedy. Feel free to have 1, 2 or 30 of these delectable, unique treats.
Empire (Fox – Wednesdays at 9 pm)
Although it isn’t really a “snack,” champagne has been a staple in the hit show since its premiere last year. Nearly every character has been featured sipping the drink in many different scenes. Mix up the classic champagne glass and mix it up; I suggest checking out these cocktail recipes featured champs. Props to whoever creates a drinking game for this show. Cheers!
Nashville (ABC – Wednesdays at 10 pm)
Tennessee is home to some of the best BBQ and cornbread in the country. Since Nashville is set in this state, indulge in some savory and sweet cornbread and smokey ribs as you catch up on the show.
TVD’s seventh season has returned to the CW this fall. However, we will not be snacking on blood like our favorite vampires in Mystic Falls often do. Instead, chow down on some frozen yogurt paired with anything from cereal and fruit to ooey-goey caramel turtles. You can even make your own right in your dorm room. Enjoy.
Grey’s Anatomy (ABC – Thursdays at 8 pm)
Like everyone’s favorite blonde on the show, Izzie Stevens (Shonda, bring her back!), whip up some fresh pastries, or perhaps a batch of cookies. I suggest having fun with it; bake in chocolate chips, Oreos, sprinkles, candies, and anything else you could think of. What better way to deal with the tragic death of McDreamy than chowing down on some killer cookies. Find even more cookie recipes here.
A true American crime show, get ready for the newest episodes of the smash hit while you chow down on pancakes, an American classic! Learn how to make your own quick, easy and delicious ones like this.
Scandal (ABC – Thursdays at 9 pm)
Channel your inner Olivia Pope and go for popcorn (and a tall glass of red wine, if you’re of age) on the coach. If you’re feeling adventurous, feel free to mix candies, peanuts, and other tasty treats into your popcorn for an extra pop of sweetness or saltiness.
How To Get Away With Murder (ABC – Thursdays at 10 pm)
Viola Davis’ hit show has returned following Grey’s and Scandal. The juicy drama goes perfectly paired with cheesesteak sandwiches, since the show is set in Philadelphia. However, as the show is filled with twists, it seems fair to do the same with our viewing snacks. So, feel free to indulge in some Cheesesteak sushi.
American Horror Story: Hotel (FX – Thursdays at 10 pm)
Since you’ll probably be screaming and shaking, you may as well indulge in some authentic, creamy, and delicious comfort food. You can never go wrong with a nice big bowl (or four) of mac and cheese.
Shark Tank (ABC – Fridays at 9 pm)
Feel like a shark with these #classy ice cream topping upgrades. You may want to make extra to eat later, sans the ice cream.
