Thursday Night Football Party Snacks Are HERE!

Are You Ready for Some Football??

This is the time of year that ALL football fans are most confident. This is THE year….the year we’ll make the playoffs…the year to GO ALL THE WAY…this is it.

We’ve signed the best new quarterback, drafted the top receiver, firmed up the defense, and how about the new coach!

It’s all there. This is it…the year!

Let’s celebrate the kickoff of the new season with some well-established football fav snack foods. Because, after all…the season is probably not going to go the way we want. And when all else fails….the food still TRIUMPHS!

Take a look at these tried and true winners!

Hot Garlicky Wings Recipe for Football Season

Hot Garlicky Wings

If you are craving a game-day wing experience, make a great dish with my Sunday Best recipe for Hot Garlicky wings. Whether your team is winning, or on the verge of winning!

Couch Potato Fan Food for the Super Bowl

REALLY GOOD TURKEY BURGER SLIDERS WITH CRISPY SHALLOTS AND PIMENTO CHEESE

They’re bite size and couch perfect. Use sharp cheddar and do NOT forget the pickles. Oh, and good news, the recipe makes enough pimento cheese to entertain your game-watching pals twice in one week!

Draft Day… Baby! NFL Party Ideas + Best Loaded Nachos Ever!

Sausage and Refried Bean Nachos

The dish that tames the angry fantasy football beast and totally scored in overtime is my sausage and refried bean nachos. I mean, these are truly a punched-up bit of nacho cheesiness. I serve these on every game day, regardless of the success of my quarterback.

Potato Fries with Crispy Buffalo Chicken, topped with Blue Cheese Gravy

I’m just in in time for football pre-season tailgating! You may have heard of a dish called “poutine”. It involves fries, gravy and cheese curds. My version kicks it up a notch!

Shhh! I snuck a few veggies in these fab meatballs...

Seared Tuna Nachos with Roasted Garlic Cream + Charcuterie Board Ideas!

Whether you prepare your own fan-favorite appys or arrange store-bought (and there are tons of them) items on your board, the secret is to be surprising. Mix and match your favorites and be creative with your choices. After all, you never want to be bored with your board!!

Game Day Dip

There’s just something about this that is super spicy but not hurtful! I use deli chicken as a shortcut, but you can use leftover chicken if you have it. Boar’s Head has a Blazing Buffalo chicken that just adds a little bit of somethin’ somethin’ to the dip, and Fritos corn chips bring the whole experience to critical addiction levels!

Snack Attack!

Bacon Bows

This should be a year-round snack starter! Bacon bows involve melting pimento cheese wrapped in bacon for an irresistable snack.

Brownie Bars for Kiddos and Grandparents

Nana’s Caramel Toffee Cookie Dough Brownie Bars

Cooking an ooey gooey cookie dough bar for game day always makes the house smell delicious and provides an awesome activity when the grandkids come over!

Super Bowl Party Food: Game Day Entertaining

Super Bowl Party Food: Game Day Entertaining

My best Super Bowl party recipes will make Kick-Off memorable. Plan your football party menu and host a Super Bowl party that you will enjoy as much as your guests will!

Read on for my 5 best Kick-Off party snacks!

Tip 1

Invite your pals… regardless of their team preference. Since this is a casual party, an email or text invite will do just fine. Let your guest know your time frame. If you plan to participate in a betting board, make sure you give everyone enough time to buy their squares BEFORE kick-off


Tip 2

Set up your party space. If you can, have at least 2 screens for watching. The more guests, the more screens. Set up your libation station the farthest place away from the front door. Your guests will move into the room a little faster this way.

 

Tip 3

What are the best Super Bowl foods to make for your kick-off party?  Serve food that you can place and let your guests pick and choose as the games ups and downs lay out. Make ahead is best. I have tons of ideas for you to think about.

 

Tip 4

Have a menu game plan (just like the coaches do!). First and second quarter place appys around for fans to nibble. Dips and appy boards are perfect here. At Half Time present your hot food like wings and sliders. The third quarter brings the winners/loser desserts like my decadent Caramel Toffee Cookie Dough Brownie Bars.

No matter which team wins the game, we’re all winners with this dessert!

Hot Garlicky Wings Recipe for Football Season

For as long as I can remember, our Game Day staple came from a little restaurant in Pompano Beach called Wings ‘N Things. We would get our wings with extra garlic and extra hot sauce, and they were the best wings I’ve ever eaten. If you ever find yourself in South Florida, you must try their wings! This recipe comes pretty darn close to our favorite.
