It's that time of year again...FOOTBALL SEASON! Personally, I rejoice that the football season has returned not because I actually like watching sports- but because it is an excuse to eat buffalo chicken wings, seven layered dip, and a wide array of other unhealthy (but football-mandatory) treats.
So whether you are in it for the thrill of the game, your fantasy football league, or simply for the food...it's time to get cooking!
You almost don't need a main course when you have appetizers at a football game! Make a trio of dips so your guests have a variety of options. Serve the dips with a selection of chips, crackers, and vegetables.
- Award-winning Guacamole
- Caramelized-Onion Dip
- Cilantro Garlic Pita Crisps
- Black Bean and Corn Dip
- Spicy Deviled Eggs
- Parmesan-crusted Baked Zucchini Sticks with Marinara Sauce
Make any or all of these main courses for your football party! We recommend choosing one chicken dish, one beef/pork dish, one salad, and one side dish for your party. Make them in bulk! It will save you time and effort.
- Pineapple Soy-glazed Chicken Wings
- Cajun Buffalo Wings
- Super Simple Sliders
- BBQ Chicken Skewers
- Fresh Corn, Avocado, Tomato Salad
- Manitoba Beer-braised Sticky Ribs
- Thai Chicken Meatballs
- Great American Potato Salad
- Always Requested Cornbread Salad
- Football Heroes
Yes, you can buy a football shaped cake at Safeway for your party...but why bother where there are so many delicious treats you can make at home instead! Make these desserts the day before to save yourself the hassle on the day of.
- Chocolate and Peanut Butter Praline Pie
- Brownie Bites with Magic Frosting
- Louisiana Bundt Cake
- Tres Leches Cake
- Turtle Cookies
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars
Skip the Natty Light beers and make one of these football-themed cocktails instead! Make pitchers of margaritas or a big basin of spiked iced tea for your next football event.
