Best Drama: Better Call Saul

This is the season where the world of Breaking Bad officially met the world of Jimmy McGill. Nowhere was that more evident than in the presence of Gus Fring, the enigmatic owner of Los Pollos Hermanos—a southwestern fast food joint that's also a front for smuggling drugs. This grilled salsa verde chicken would be totally at home on the Los Pollos menu.

Best Drama: The Crown

This addictive Netflix drama shows what goes on behind palace doors during the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II. As you watch Elizabeth navigate her marriage, Churchill, her sister and WWII, it's hard not to have sympathy for the monarch. Eager to be like The Queen in every way—we couldn't resist trying out her recipe for drop scones, which are basically fancy pancakes.

Best Drama: The Handmaid's Tale

Based on Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel, Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale tells the story of a not-too-distant future where reproduction has slowed and women who can conceive are treated like slaves. One of the few bright spots in this bleak world is oranges—they're The Commander's favorite. Celebrate that we are NOT in this world (yet) by dipping some cuties in chocolate.

Best Drama: House of Cards

If I'm being honest, I don't watch House of Cards anymore. I fell off after season 2, though I hear Claire became president. Good for her. Show your patriotic pride for the show's first woman president with this easy Flag S'mores Dip.

Best Drama: Stranger Things

Though it seems like Stranger Things should have been honored last year, we're so happy this addictive trip down '80s lane is getting the recognition it deserves now. And while we have to wait for Halloween to see season two, rumor has it your favorite escaped experiment is back. Use Eleven's favorite food—Eggo waffles—to make these adorable breakfast sliders.

Best Drama: This Is Us

The sheer amount of tears shed watching the first season of This Is Us could fill an embarrassingly large vessel. No episode made me cry harder than [spoiler] the death of Randall's father William. To honor his life, Randall's daughters plan his ultimate day, which starts with his favorite meal—breakfast! These waffle pops are the most adorable way to pay homage to TV's new first family.

Best Drama: Westworld

The robots (and guests) don't seem to eat a lot while in Westworld, which doesn't make much sense to me. If I was in a place where there were no rules, you can bet I'd be eating with abandon. What they really should be eating is frontier food like these cheesy campfire potatoes. Even the Man In Black wouldn't be able to resist.

Best Comedy: Atlanta

Atlanta succeeds because it's both highly relatable and incredibly specific. During its remarkable first season, the boys head to a local wing joint, JR Crickets, where they enjoy some lemon pepper wet wings. Famous in Atlanta and constantly referenced in rap from the area, lemon pepper wings are the only thing to eat when you want to channel your inner Earn and Paper Boi.

Best Comedy: Black-ish

Steak and potatoes just feels like a family dinner, and Black-ish is nothing if not a portrait of an American family. Plus, there's that one episode where Dre takes his kids to his favorite steakhouse, but they just aren't having it. That's why we're serving up a restaurant-worthy steak au poivre with waffle fries to salute the first family of funny television.

Best Comedy: Master of None

This season Dev headed to Italy to study pasta making and the result was some of the most beautiful food porn on television. This easy carbonara might not be homemade enough to make your Nonna proud, but it's so good you definitely won't care.

Best Comedy: Silicon Valley

While the boys of Pied Piper have had to reinvent themselves more times than we can count, their choice of where to go to celebrate never wavers. The guys often head to a Mexican restaurant for margaritas and probably some shredded beef enchiladas like these. Just watch out for the mariachi band.

Best Comedy: Veep

Julia Louis-Dreyfus is basically an American treasure on her own, disregarding the fact she plays a former president. So despite former president Meyer's incompetency, we know deep down she really loves this country. These cherry bombs look properly patriotic, but have a dark, boozy secret—just like our favorite funny lady.

Best Comedy: Modern Family

Haley Dunphy might seem to be the ditz of the Dunphy clan—considering she dropped out of college and lives in her parents' basement. But if her short time at college only produced this recipe for personal pizzas out of ramen noodles, we'd consider her the most successful member of her modern family.

Best Limited Series: Big Little Lies

I've never wanted to live in California more than when watching Big Little Lies. Sure, the abuse and cattiness of the characters doesn't exactly scream, MOVE HERE, but the real estate porn seemed to outweigh any possible negatives. Plus, you'd be able to eat this California grilled chicken by your pool, overlooking the ocean every night.

Best Limited Series: Fargo

While I started watching for DOUBLE the Ewan McGregor, the 3rd season of this Coen Brothers-inspired show was actually stolen by its villain—V.M. Varga, played by David Thewlis. Murderous and cruel, Varga has his own issues with food, but we couldn't help but be a little jealous when he was eating a pint of Rocky Road during the one episode this season. This Rocky Road Pie is a great way to get your fix in a safe, Delish-approved manner.

Best Comedy: Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Oh, sweet Kimmy. Her time spent locked in a bunker has made her woefully ignorant to pop culture references, so when she tries to sound hip, hilarity always ensues. What might be the most perfect joke in the second season is when Kimmy attempts to make a hashtag, no filter joke but instead says "hash brown, no filter." We actually fully support switching hashtag to hash brown in all instances, especially if we are eating this hash brown breakfast sandwich while tweeting and 'gramming.
