Minnesota Woman Wins Super Bowl Tickets in Rachael Ray Cook-Off

What’s the next best thing after seeing your favorite team missing the chance to go to the Super Bowl? How about winning the opportunity to go yourself?

That’s what happened to Hannah Brandes, who’s also a huge Minnesota Vikings fan, on the Rachael Ray show. Brandes, who’s a North Oaks, Minnesota native, served her favorite game-day snacks on the program this week. For those not familiar, Ray hosts a “Fantasy Foodball” cook-off each year, where fans of the final four NFL teams compete in studio, making their “best game-day grub”.

The winner receives a $500 gift card, a prime spot for their recipes on and TWO tickets to Super Bowl 52, including a three-night stay in Minneapolis.

That ended up being Brandes and her two Viking themed recipes: The hot “Skol Sausage Dip” and her “Crush the Packers Corn Dip”! Let’s watch how it all went down:

How awesome is that? Those snacks look delicious too! So in case you’re still looking to have something Vikings related at your Super Bowl Party, check out Brandes’ winning recipes below:
