It’s the weekend football fans wait all year for! The big game is here and it’s time for the three F’s: Food, football & fun! While we can’t help you choose who to cheer for or where to watch the game, we can definitely help with the food!
If you’re hosting a game day party, you’re probably feeling a little overwhelmed with all the possible recipe ideas you see floating around on social media. If you’re anything like us, you want to make them all!

There’s no need to go overboard, but variety is always good. It’s the perfect time to serve up a good mix of new recipes and old favorites. Here are a few suggestions:

Fuel up on finger foods! For larger parties, finger foods are a great option because they can be eaten easily while standing up. Perfect if seating is at a premium.
