Game Day Eats

Tags: , , , ,

While we aren’t really football watchers around here (Sean’s die-hard for fútbol), we do get down with some game-day fare. I mean, I’m into game days and the Superbowl…if there are snacks and treats galore. Below are just a few recipes that I think would totes be Big Game appropriate.

Roasted Pepper Cheese Dip

QUESO, y’all! It’s a cheesy, spicy, gooey hot tub for chips and other dip-ables. It’s a processed-cheese-free dream.

Beer Battered Pickles

There isn’t much to say here, I mean it’s pickles dipped in beer batter, then deep fried. These are arguably the best-ever snack to accompany a super chilled beer. Photo below by me, recipe on my girl–Megan’s–blog.

Corn Dog Pops

All the goodness of a corn dog, miniaturized on a stick. These pretty much eliminate the awkwardness that is eating a corn dog. Plus, you can have like, half a dozen or more!

Easy + Light Potato Soup

In case you want another option besides the standard chili (I know I’m not kidding anyone here, chili is the business), this potato soup is just a bit lighter, totally filling and warm, and can be topped with all kinds of goodness…just like chili.

Streusel-Topped and Rocky Road Brownies

Brownies from scratch are among the easiest, most satisfying desserts around. They can feed a crowd and adaptations are endless. I love these two brownies–I mean, crunchy streusel or gooey, nutty rocky road. It’s a tough choice, but one could totally make both!

  1. Everyone knows the best part of the “big game” is the food! Well, I guess that’s what all non-football fans always say :) I mean, you can’t even say it’s the SB or you’ll be fined a million dollars, right? We prefer fútbol, too! The boys are way cuter :)

  2. OHHH the brownies. You know, here in Australia we are seriously lacking in the area of big ‘game day’ get togethers! I think I might have to introduce this tradition to the country. Just to get the snacks, of course.

  3. Oh there are some tasty things in this list! I’m with you on the beer-battered pickles. Tried them a few years ago and never looked back – best. combination. ever.
