Supervalu launch meals designed by favourite recipes of GAA stars

SuperValu, proud sponsor of the GAA Football All Ireland Championship, today teamed up with Dublin’s Bernard Brogan, Tyrone’s Sean Cavanagh, Monaghan’s Dick Clerkin and celebrity chef Kevin Dundon to create the ‘GAA Winning Tastes of Summer’, a selection of favourite recipes made from quality produce that our GAA stars have compiled to share with fans for the Championship ahead.

The recipes are drawn from the players’ childhood memories of food that they associate with the GAA, along with tried and tested recipes that they use to prepare for a big match and their favourite treat dish that they cook up to celebrate a win. Kevin Dundon also shares his own ‘GAA Winning Taste of Summer’ sandwich that reminds him of great GAA occasions. 

SuperValu are calling on GAA fans and foodies alike to replicate the recipes and tweet their efforts using #SVwinningtaste to be in with a chance to win fantastic prizes throughout the Championship. 

Prizes include a VIP trip to the All-Ireland Final, a weekend stay in Dunbrody House along with SuperValu shopping vouchers, food hampers and many more. 

Dublin footballer, Bernard Brogan said, “My ‘GAA Winning Taste of Summer’ dish is Cottage Pie with sweet potato topping which I usually cook after big Championship games or I am partial to a traditional dinner of Roast Chicken with roast potatoes and vegetables. I’m no chef but I am particular about the source and quality of my food so it was great to meet up with Kevin Dundon today to get tips on how to make the most of the fresh local produce available at SuperValu.  I am looking forward to giving Sean and Dick’s recipes a go and hopefully people will try them out at home over the summer season.”

SuperValu ambassador and celebrity chef Kevin Dundon said, ‘Everybody has a meal or snack that they associate with the GAA Championship whether it is the reliable ham sandwich, the breakfast roll or a Sunday roast. My own choice is a nostalgic one from my childhood and reminds me of the excitement and build up to heading up to Croke Park with my family.  We wanted to work with our GAA stars to share their ‘GAA Winning Taste of Summer’ with a little twist, with fans and hopefully people will feel inspired to give them a go throughout the Championship.” 

A range of recipes will be made available on over the coming weeks.

The first recipe in our ‘GAA Winning Taste of Summer’ series is Kevin’s take on the traditional ham sandwich, synonymous with the GAA. Kevin’s ‘Ultimate Ham Sandwich’ recipe is below for those who want to give it a try…..

Kevin’s Ultimate Ham Sandwich
               Serves 2

* 4 Slices SuperValu Fresh Bread 
* 200g SuperValu Signature Tastes Baked Ham, sliced 
* 100g SuperValu Signature Taste Vintage White Cheddar Cheese 
* SuperValu Cos Lettuce Leaves 
* ½ SuperValu Signature Tastes Red Onion, thinly sliced 
* 1 tbsp SuperValu Mayonnaise 
* 1 tsp Wholegrain Mustard 
* 4 Gherkins, thinly sliced 
* 2 tbsp Signature Tastes Red Onion Relish or Roast Pepper Relish

Combine the mayonnaise and mustard together in a small bowl.

Lay the bread on a flat surface then spread a layer of the mustard mayonnaise on each slice.  Place some lettuce leaves on two slices of bread, a few rings of red onion, ham, gherkins then add a slice of cheese.   Add a tbsp of tomato chutney, then top with the remaining slices of bread.  

TIP: Wrap in parchment paper rather than clingfilm as it will prevent the sandwich from getting a wet texture.
