24 Game Day Recipes

Welp, the biggest game day of the year is this coming weekend. I’m pumped to say the least. Then our TV gets to go back to HBO and Netflix. It also means I have an excuse to put together a slew of my favorite Game Day Recipes! So here you go…

When it comes to hosting an epic game day watch party, I think we can all agree the key to success is the snack and appetizer menu. In fact, I’m known to volunteer to have people over for just about any game because it’s an excuse to throw together a menu and break out all the best snacks. I love serving a variety of appetizers, so there’s something everyone can enjoy. That’s why I split this post up into two sections, vegetarian game day recipes that everyone will love and game day recipes with all the meat – bring on all the carnitas skillet nachos and bacon cheddar buffalo wings. The best part is these snacks couldn’t be easier to make, and you can totally prep some of these recipes in advance so you can actually sit down and enjoy the game too! So here’s a round up of my favorite snacks to make for game day viewing. All you’ve got to do is pick a couple of bite-sized appetizers, some dips, grab some chips, and you’re golden. There’s seriously something for everyone! Here we go….
