Are You Ready For Some Football? Recipes, That Is!

Football season is starting soon, and that means it’s finally time to start thinking about the most important game day decision of all: football food. Yummy snacks pair well with a win, but they can also soothe the losing blues. We’ve gathered together some recipes to help you take your pigskin-watching experience to the next level.

Appetizers for Kickoff

When you start with bacon and cheese, how can you go wrong? These bacon pastry twists start with two sheets of puff pastry, bacon and plenty of shredded cheddar. Once baked, serve these with beer cheese dip and you’ll have the the perfect game-day grub. 

What do you think when you hear Mac & Cheese Pizza Bites? This unexpected pairing is an obvious palate-pleaser. As an added bonus, these goodies take only 15 minutes of prep time, so whether your football fan watchers number two or 12, nobody will be waiting long to whet their appetites! 

And since it doesn’t quite feel like fall yet, how about a dip that celebrates the fleeting taste of summer? Avocado-feta dip is quick, easy, on the healthier side, and great to serve alongside some veggies or toasted bread. 

Entrees Worthy of a Halftime Show

One classic option for feeding folks crowded around a television set is to serve up some finger-licking good pizza. Give the delivery place — and your wallet — a break and make BBQ Chicken Pizza, a homemade take on California Pizza Kitchen’s famous pizza pie and there’s even a low-carb option!

Serving up a hearty, vegetarian meal for all your football fanatics couldn’t be easier than this Crock Pot Vegetarian Buffalo Cauliflower Chili. It checks all the boxes of a delicious game day meal by being quick, crowd pleasing, and outside of the ordinary.

Would any collection of football season recipes truly be complete without chicken wings? All you need in your recipe arsenal is this classic wing recipe, which includes a blue cheese dipping sauce that will have everyone asking for more.

Desserts To Close Out The Game

Here’s one you probably haven’t tried before: No-Bake Waffle Dippers. These adorable football-shaped desserts can be easily customized to your taste, these yummy treats will keep everyone happy and save you some time to enjoy the game yourself.
