#1 COWBOY CAVIAR

Not sure why it’s cowboy, or caviar, but this stuff is delish. Serve it with lots of salty tortilla chips and turn up the volume on your big screen, it’s about to get crunchy!

 


 

#2 RITZ CRACKER CANAPES

Because some of us don’t know a hat trick from a Hail Mary, we just come for the food…

Easy Springtime Ritz Cracker Canapés ~ celebrate the return of warmer weather with a collection of colorful toppings on crisp Ritz crackers...layer them up and watch them disappear!

 


 

#3 WARM HUMMUS WITH MUSHROOMS

There is nothing, and I mean nothing, better than a warm bowl of freshly made hummus…better make a back up batch, this will disappear fast.

Warm Mushroom Hummus is a healthy hot appetizer that takes hummus to a whole new level!

 


 

#4 BOURBON MEATBALLS

Because…meatballs. And bourbon.

Delicious Bourbon Cocktail Meatballs are tender and light, and slatherd in a dreamy bourbon barbecue sauce! ~ theviewfromgreatisland.com

 


 

#5 SWEET VIDALIA ONION DIP

Nobody can resist a hot onion dip. This one can be made the day before and baked up to bubbly perfection during the pregame show.

 


 

#6 CHEESY SPINACH ARTICHOKE BREAD

Dip and bread all in one…it’s a sports fan’s dream.

 


 

#7 CHEESY HATCH GREEN CHILE DIP

If you prefer your dip the old fashioned way, this is your man.

 


 

#8 MAHOGANY CHICKEN WINGS

Chicken wings are classic Game Day grub, and for good reason, they provide lots of sticky sweet protein in an easy grab-able format. Just keep your mitts off the remote.

 


 

#9 FRIED OLIVES

Don’t question, just make.

#12 ROASTED OLIVES

For the lazy (and smart!) entertainer…these crowd pleasing olives are embarrassingly easy to make.

 


 

#13 CHEESEBURGER JALAPENO POPPERS

Why would you make poppers any other way?

#14 VIDALIA ONIONS STRINGS WITH HORSERADISH AIOLI

Be careful, you could easily miss a great play with your face planted in these crispy little onions strings…

 


 

#15 HOW TO MAKE THE ULTIMATE CHEESE BOARD

This is it, the ultimate way to entertain and enjoy your own partay at the same time! Assemble it in the morning, and then let your guests take care of themselves ~ it’s genius.

    Holy moly, sign me up for the ANTIPASTO SKEWERS! You know what I would do? I would eat an entire skewer then use the skewer as a sword to fend off anyone who tried to eat the rest! I legit would probably take the entire tray of skewers and lock myself in the closet with them. I would whisper “my precious” as I devoured each one.

    Whoops, sorry, things just got a little weird. That happens when I’m blown away by awesome recipe ideas!

    The situation is….there is no game going on……but I believe I can do this without the game, right? (?) And, I agree with Robin about a cookbook, it will be wonderful! Great entertainment Sue, thank you!
