football food

If your household is anything like mine, it feels like football is the only thing going on these days. We’ve got Badger games on Saturdays, Packer games on Sundays and all of these games – college or pro – require the same thing. Football food.

Football food is special, a little naughty and oh so fun to eat at 11am with a bloody mary or mimosa. If it is a big game and we are watching it at home with friends there are a couple required things on the football spread:

  • Cheese and lots of it! (I mentioned that the Badgers & Packers are Wisconsin sports, right?)
  • Crackers/bread
  • Dips
  • Veggies!
  • Meat/something substantial: typically something like frozen meatballs that are easily prepared
  • Drinks: Bloody Mary’s, beer, fun cocktail or mimosas

    We aren’t big football fans in our house, but for game food I like good old fashioned buffalo wings. Yummy! I haven’t tried to make any yet, but I think I just might . . . since now I have a craving.

    Ah, game day food gives me the warm fuzzies. :) If there’s spinach dip involved, I’m usually a happy camper. Really any kind of dip. And I’ve been meaning to jump on the buffalo chicken dip bandwagon…it seems important to my happiness.

    Love “football food”. To me, football (and the Giants!) means chili. I like turkey or veggie chili. Food Should Taste Good chips, Hampton Chutney chuteys/dips and spiked cider.

    Haha, oh yes, my hubby is obsessed with football, and if I want to see him on Sunday at all, I have to bring him food :) These are some great ideas, and make game day a little more fun for me! And I agree about the best part of football is taking naps!!!
