As we approach the Big Game day, our thoughts turn to what foods to share with friends as we enjoy the biggest sporting event of the football season. Here are some all-time favorites that are sure to pair well with football, friends, and beer!
Every year, chicken wings top the charts for game day food items. They make great finger foods and can be prepared in several ways from spicy buffalo wings to sweet honey glazed teriyaki. Even the preparation can be varied from baked or fried to grilled.
Here are a few suggestions to get your Game Day menu kick started:
- BBQ chicken wings
- Honey garlic wing
- Buffalo wings with blue cheese dip
- Crispy baked wings (hot with chili powder, mild with smoked paprika)
- Whiskey maple barbecue wings
- Southern fried wings with chipotle aioli
- Glazed teriyaki wings
- Spicy Moroccan
- Beer Battered
- Pesto, Pizza, or Parmesan flavored
- Carolina style with mustard and brown sugar
- Tequila Lime
- Thai Peanut
- Tandoori with Greek yogurt
All of these sound super yummy for a super game day. Each one can spark additional finger-food sides that can be added to the overall feast.
Pork Ribs or Pork Sliders
Either of these great pork dishes make super tasty game day food. Pork ribs can be done with a sticky barbecue sauce, done healthy in the oven. Fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs are always a hit. Balsamic glazed ribs are great on a grill or in a smoker. Chinese pork ribs are super easy and especially tasty when marinated overnight.
Sliders are also another great pork appetizer. They can be done easily and with great success in a crock pot. Fill the slow cooker with your favorite spices and a nice boneless pork shoulder and you’ve got a great meal with low effort. Serve them with fries, coleslaw, potato salad, or baked beans. Not hard to pair these with some hearty comfort food!!!
Don’t Forget the Nuts!!!
Nothing goes better with a game day beer than a handful of nuts. Whether your favorite is a simple roasted peanut or a fancy cashew, nuts are always a great snack and perfect accompaniment to game day festivities.
