Baked Cheesy Meatball Sliders ~ Me : These sliders make entertaining so easy and are perfect for feeding a crowd! Made with homemade meatballs in a marinara sauce, soft Hawaiian sweet rolls, and two different kinds of Italian cheese. They are sure to become a family favorite.
Best Crockpot Beer, Brats, & Onions Recipe ~ A Fork’s Tale : If you like brats, then this recipe is for you and it’s made super easy via the crockpot. Just throw everything in the pot and, 6-7 hours later, you’ve got the most amazingly juicy brats. Bring on the pretzel rolls and spicy mustard!
Honey Roasted Peanut Clusters ~ Girl Heart Food : Make your own all-natural honey roasted peanuts first thing tomorrow morning and snack on these babies all day. A touch of cayenne pepper gives these peanuts a nice spark of spiciness and makes them oh-so addicting.
Parmesan Sour Cream Dip ~ The Neelys (Food Network) : Easy peasy classic cold dip recipe for potato chips that are perfect for game day! I’m going to make about 5 pounds of this dip to serve because I’m a huge chip and dip girl.
Homemade Pan Pizza ~ Me : Football and pizza go together like peanut butter and jelly. Crackers and cheese. Dark chocolate and me. This pizza is so much better than hand tossed pizza because it’s baked in a cast iron skillet, which means there’s a buttery crunchy thick crust under all those beautiful toppings. You’re welcome.
Classic Chickpea Hummus ~ Bon Appétit : No snacking is complete until the hummus shows up. The awesome thing about hummus is it’s totally non-judgemental and will hang out with any sort of character, from carby bread to crispy tortilla chips to healthy raw veggies. Hummus is friendly with everyone.
Instant Pot Shredded Beef Tacos ~ Me : Grab your Instant Pot, some inexpensive beef stew meat, and a little salsa for one of the easiest taco recipes. In only 35 minutes, cook up tender meat for the best tacos and nachos around. The cooked mixture will stay fresh on the warm setting and ready when needed. Seriously, these tacos will make you forget there’s even a football game on.
Beef & Chorizo Chili ~ Me : A hearty multi bean chili made with homemade chorizo and topped with a fresh homemade pico de gallo. Can be made a few days ahead of time and place in a slow cooker to keep warm all during the games!
Chicken Wing Recipes ~ Bon Appétit : One chicken wing recipe is never enough, so here’s a bunch to choose your favorite from. There’s a flavor for everyone on game day. Make one or make them all!!
Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip ~ Me : Here’s the obligatory buffalo chicken dip for game day! You knew it was going to show up. After all, isn’t there a law against watching a football game without any buffalo chicken dip? No? Well, there should be.
