Celebrate game day with tasty appetizers
Do you want to know one of my favorite things to eat on Game Day? All the Football appetizers!
To have a whole spread of snacks, dips, and finger foods is a dream come true for me. A big buffet full of apps is the best way to kick off the football game.
Appetizers served on the day of the big game tend to be full of flavor, a little bit decadent. They’re things you can’t help but start thinking about ahead of time.
Whether you’re hosting at home, tailgating at a stadium or heading to a friend’s house, this list of easy recipes will help you find the winning dishes to serve this year!
Football party finger foods often include dips, cheese balls and sliders. But I also love to round out the homemade items with a few easy football snack ideas.

How to Plan a Winning Menu
When it comes down to what to serve, you have to determine what your guests would like most. Ask yourself these questions to help you plan your menu.
- Will there be kids at the party?
- Do my guests enjoy meat options?
- Do my guests want fruit and veggies?
- Are these ideas easy to eat?
Knowing what your guests like will help you put together an array of apps that everyone will enjoy.
Game day appetizers don’t have to be hard and you don’t have to wait until the day of the big game to make everything.
If you plan your menu right, you can start making the food in advance, which is awesome. Anything that will keep for a few days in the fridge is a win in my book.
Take the stress out game day with these time-saving tips.
Have Everyone Bring Something
If you are hosting, you don’t need to do all of the work by yourself, you can also have everyone else bring an appetizer.
If you know what you want everyone to bring, then make a list and your guests can choose from that list. Having everyone else bring an appetizer can help save you time.
Keep it Simple
Game Day isn’t the day to bring your fanciest dishes and appetizers. Keep it simple for any football party appetizers and you’ll make everyone happy!
The fancier the dishes, the more you might stress yourself out. Keep it as simple as possible for Game Day.
