Don’t bother with long lines at the game, make these stadium recipes at home.
Classic Buffalo Wings
Wings and football make the perfect team--and classic hot wings are sure to be a crowd favorite whether you’re at the game or watching from home. Once your spicy wings are out of the fryer, throw them in the oven for a quick bake to achieve that extra-crispy texture. The three main ingredients of hot sauce, butter, and lemon make for a simple and delicious recipe to make before any game. Just make sure you have plenty of blue cheese dip and celery sticks.
Sliders make for the perfect game day appetizer to fill up your guests before kickoff. These meatball sliders are sure to be a catch … in your mouth when you eat the whole tray full! Your sliders can be the classic combination of marinara and provolone, the barbecue slider with coleslaw and fried onion straws, or you can make your own unique slider recipe to match your favorite team and game day appetite.
For added flavor, brush your rolls with a mixture of parmesan, garlic, and butter, and bake the sandwiches until they’re golden brown.
Meat, beans, queso sauce, and we’re just getting started. Serve this pile-high plate of chips with an array of different toppings so your game day guests can customize their perfect nacho plate. Smother your nachos in juicy marinated steak, chicken, or carnitas and add dollops of sour cream, guacamole, salsa, corn, and whatever else you need to enjoy your Sunday afternoon snack time. These big flavors hit harder than an outside linebacker, and no matter who wins the game, your nachos will be the winner of your football party.
Mini Pretzel Bites
Soft-pretzels are one of those snacks that can be enjoyed at any sporting event. These chewy bites of perfectly baked dough slathered in butter and sprinkled with salt make for a delicious and easy snack to devour while you're cheering for your team.
These pretzel bites are perfect for football season, game nights with the family, or any gathering with friends. They can be prepared the night before and baked right before the game so you can serve your appetizer without missing any big plays. The only problem you may run into is deciding if you want mustard or cheese sauce for dipping.
You can’t host a game day celebration without something fried to eat. Fried pickles are the perfect snack for the pre-game, or to enjoy for all four quarters. Coat your favorite kind of pickle in cornstarch, give them an egg wash, and toss in a cornmeal mixture before frying for the perfect crispy bite. Easy to eat with one hand so you can keep wearing your foam finger. Serve with chipotle ranch dressing and you’ll score big with these pickles.
BBQ Brisket Sandwich
Nothing screams stadium cuisine like smokey, slow-cooked barbecue. A juicy brisket sandwich will melt in your mouth and tackle you with flavor. A sandwich like this should warrant a penalty for flavor, but breaking the rules tastes too good. This is a sandwich fit for a football team--piled-high with barbecue brisket, crunchy coleslaw, and if you’re feeling adventurous, a few fried onion rings. They’re easy to prepare in a slow cooker and make ahead of time to reheat before the game. Serve this rich and hearty sandwich on a beautifully toasted bun and wait for the mouths to water.
