Who’s ready for some football? If you’re hosting a Game Day viewing party or just relaxing with family and friends in front of the big screen TV, you want easy options for delicious food that everyone’s going to love but won’t keep you in the kitchen.
I’ve put together a selection of 12 Game Day recipes that will satisfy any hungry crowd, but you’re going to love as well. Most can be made ahead of time, and many utilize one of my favorite kitchen appliances: the slow cooker. On a Big Game Day, a slow cooker will be your best friend by keeping the food hot, but letting you be in front of the action while the game is on.
For appetizers, I’ve selected:
- Mexicitos (aka empanadas)
- Plum-Sauced Chicken Wings
- Cheesy Beer-Salsa Dip
- German Soft Pretzel Sticks with Bacon
Feel free to dunk your German Soft Pretzel Sticks into the Cheesy Beer-Salsa. So. Darn. Good.
Each of the entrees are cooked in your slow cooker:
- Zesty Italian Lasagna
- Cheesy Bacon Corn Chowder
- Sloppy Joes with Bacon
- 6-Bean Chili with Sweet Peppers
Any of these entrees will score a touch down with your guests.
Last, but in no way least, I’ve selected four dessert recipes that are easy to eat with your hands and all are real crowd-pleasers:
- Fumble Nutter Brownie Bites
- Home-style Cracker Jack
- Root Beer Brownies
- Deconstructed S’More Brownies
You can probably tell that I’m partial to brownies. Guilty as charged. Not only are brownies so easy to make, everyone from kids to adults love them. So I can’t lose anytime they’re on my party menu.
What are you serving at your Game Day party?
