It’s hard to believe that summer is over and it’s already time for the Emmys! This weekend, all your favorite stars will hit the red carpet for TV’s biggest night, and we thought it would be fun to share recipes that go with your favorite shows!

If You Love Modern Family, Try: Lizzie’s Roasted Chicken

Bring the whole family together with this decadent roasted chicken from Michael Symon. The bird is seasoned with lemon, bay leaves, thyme, garlic and onion before being roasted in a cast-iron pan until the skin caramelizes to a deep brown crackled texture – perfection! And for a ‘Modern,’ twist, Michael serves the chicken with a multi-layered salsa verde.

If You Love Game of Thrones, Try: Slow Roasted Bone-in Leg of Lamb

We could totally see the Lannisters sitting down to feast on this in the Red Keep! This recipe combines white wine, herbs and stock for roasting, and finishes with a roasted garlic gravy.

If You Love Better Call Saul, Try: Turkey and Green Chile Burgers with Guacamole

Nothing says New Mexico like green chile! This burger is one you don’t have to feel guilty about, either, since it’s made with turkey and also features nutrient-dense avocado!

If You Love Parks and Rec, Try: Queso Dip Mac and Cheese

As Tom Haverford would say, “Treat yourself,” to this sinfully delicious mac and cheese that features all the flavors of queso dip! And you can even eat it with tortilla chips! Amazing!

If you Love Mad Men, Try: John’s Old Fashioned

We can totally see Don Draper sidling up to a dim-light bar and sipping this cocktail, probably while a beautiful lady who is not his wife sits down next to him.

If You Love Orange is the New Black, Try: Texas Stewed Pork

In jail, we feel like everything is pretty much cooked up in the same big pot, but this stew probably has a little more flavor than you would get in a typical prison meal. But don’t tell Red that!

If You Love Veep, Try: Jill Biden’s Chicken Nuggets

This recipe came from the wife of our current vice president, and is a healthier take on chicken nuggets. Perfect to munch on while watching the Emmys!
