Whether your guests are rooting for New England or New York, delicious snacks for this Sunday are a must! For a fresh spin on classic game day crowd-pleasers, read on! Dieters beware: This is NOT an occasion for carrot sticks and cottage cheese. Prepare for savory bites that are worth every buttery calorie. Most importantly, don’t forget the beer!
We love the idea of you, the host, supplying all of the ingredients but letting everyone else do all of the work. Go the extra yard with homemade salsa and even a pot of slow-cooked chili.
Set everything — tortilla chips, shredded cheese, jalapeno slices, sour cream, guacamole, tomatoes, chicken — out in festive servers and let your buddies navigate the rest.
For an upscale alternative to sliders, break out the panini press and try a few riffs on classic sandwich combos. How about pimento cheese and tomato? Or Buffalo-style chicken with blue cheese on sourdough? Yumm Yumm Yumm. To satisfy your need for beef, layer cheddar and caramelized onions over beer-braised short ribs. When in doubt, add bacon – it never fails. And for dessert? You can’t beat All-American Chocolate Chip cookies. The next morning, you can play Monday morning dietary quarterback but until then, indulge and have fun!
