Thanks to Game Night for teaming up with me and sponsoring this video.

In case you haven’t figured it out by now there are three things Matt absolutely loves. Movies, food, and games. He has partnered with the upcoming film Game Night, starring Jason Bateman and Rachel Adams, to bring you some stellar recipe ideas for your next game night.

Matt has taken his inspiration for these game night recipes from one of the most classic games of all time, Jenga. The game with the giant stack of wooden blocks that you all take turns pulling one out of until the whole pile just comes crashing down on the table. Matt is taking this idea to a whole new level in this video where he shows you how to turn the idea of Jenga into 3 different but equally impressive sandwich stacks.
To start things off you are going to need to make a whole lot of toast. Matt has taken a large amount of white bread, as you can see from the video, and cut all the crusts off. After that he lines a baking pan with foil, lays out as many pieces of bread as he can fit on it, and spreads some mayonnaise on them all. He went with mayonnaise instead of butter because it has a slightly higher fat count and will crisp up better. You don't need to keep your bread in the oven for very long, literally as soon as it's brown it's done so pull it out of there.

While Matt is spreading mayo on his bread he checks out the trailer for Game Night. There's a lot of hype about this film right now because the two main characters are a dynamic duo and the plot looks interesting. The trailer paints the movie as a game night that is supposed to be murder mystery themed party but turns into a real murder mystery. This is one movie you aren't going to want to miss!

Now that your bread is done it's time to prep for the creation of your sandwiches. The first sandwich is the bacon jam and brie sandwich. According to Matt bacon jam is best when it's made the day before. To make your bacon jam heat up a medium sized skillet as seen in the video and add a fair amount of canola oil to it. Next you will add in chopped onions and cook it until it softens. Once it has reached a softened state it's safe to add in your bacon. Break up your bacon and stir your bacon and onions together well. You will need to let that cook for about ten minutes to render out all bacon fat. After ten minutes start slowly adding in your soy sauce. Once your soy sauce has been added it's time to put in the brown sugar. After adding in the brown sugar and the soy sauce let the whole thing simmer on medium heat for about half an hour. The sugar is going to caramelize and that's a big part of turning your creation into jam. You'll know it's done when the bacon becomes a darker color, the onions clear, and the sugar is completely cooked down. Your next step here is to put your jam into a blender and give it a good spin. After that refrigerate it overnight and the next day you'll have perfect jam.
Matt moves on to prep for the steak and cheese sandwich. He starts with a beautiful piece of top sirloin, mozzarella, and some shaved onions. Get a proper grill pan, like what Matt is using in the video and bring it up to the appropriate heat. Add canola oil to your pan, season your meat as seen in the video, sear it and then put it in the oven to cook for about fifteen minutes. While the meat is cooking in the oven lightly pickle your onions by adding them to a medium sized mixing bowl and pouring white vinegar on them, adding salt, the tossing the whole concoction together well. Give that mixture about 20 minutes and they should be just right. Pull out your steak, let the meat rest for about ten minutes and then slice it super thin.

We are finally on to sandwich number three. This consists of tuna, Tostitos, and guacamole. Watch the video to find out the recipe details.
