5 Winning Big Game Recipes

Rooting for your favorite team doesn’t have to mean driving to the stadium and standing outside in the cold. With delicious game day grub and a few festive touches, it’s easy to be a superfan from the comfort of your couch. Put on your lucky jersey and get ready to cheer, we’ve got the play-by-play for easy, affordable game day. 

Some winning tips: 

1. Prep ahead of the big game. Assembling snacks in advance and heating (if necessary) right before game time will ensure you don’t miss a minute of the action. 

2. Diversify your snack lineup. Keep the action on the munchies table interesting by serving an array of different dippers and toppings  

3. Serve with spirit. A football-shaped bread bowl makes a fun and tasty serving vessel for dip (learn how easy it is to make in the bean dip recipe below). Add festivity to the rest of your spread by featuring your team’s colors with items like a tablecloth, paper plates, and napkins. 

Ready to kick off some game day fun? We’ve got your menu set with hearty, homemade versions of five game-day favorites. 

Cheddary Bean Dip 
This lusciously cheesy dip packs a big protein punch thanks to refried beans. Spiked with the flavors of lime, chili powder, and green onions, it’s a Tex-Mex bite for Cowboy-sized appetites. 

Veggie Subs 
Satisfy Italian sandwich lovers with a hearty hero that non-meat eaters will love, too. Tender artichoke hearts and zippy pepperoncini add bold, authentic flavor to these subs piled high with peppers, onions, tomatoes, and provolone.  

Pizza Bagels
For a grownup take on bite-sized pizza, skip the freezer case and make your own. Mini bagel pizzas are a simple, delicious canvas for any meat or veggie toppings you like. 

Beef and Queso Nachos
Creamy, queso-covered tortilla chips with all the fixings get an all-star upgrade in this meaty nacho recipe. Topped with pre-sliced, thinly shaved ribeye, it’s a smart way to serve steak while stretching a buck. 

Buffalo Chicken Pull-Apart Loaf 
We’ve taken everything you love about tangy, fiery Buffalo chicken and wrapped it into an irresistibly flaky package. Blue cheese and scallions add bold flavor to this easy pull-apart loaf made with refrigerated biscuit dough.   

No matter what the score, everyone’s a winner with this game-day spread. Game on!
