All the best appetizers to serve while watching football!
Are you ready for the Big Game? To tell you the truth, I’m not all that into football, but give me a party and all of the sudden watching football becomes fun! I’m really all about the food and the socialization!
No matter if you are a football fan or who you’re rooting for, watching the game is better if you have great food. This collection of game day appetizers has something for everyone!
Dips are a must and you must have a variety. One of the great thing about many of these dips is they can be made ahead of time.
Homemade guacamole made with just four ingredients. That’s it – just four ingredients; avocados, tomatoes, onions, lime juice. And salt, but that doesn’t really count as an ingredient!
You’re not going to want to use a fork! Nope, just grab with your fingers and pop ’em right on in. Finger foods need to be plentiful and the more variety the better.
Mexican tortilla pinwheels are filled with cream cheese and roasted peppers. You decide how spicy to make it!
I also love to include Crunchy Taco Cups. They are filled with black beans and topped with shredded cheese and guacamole.
More delicious finger foods include:
- Mozzarella Sticks – cheesy goodness inside a crunchy coating
- Cocktail Meatballs – little meatballs with an apricot barbecue sauce
- Coconut Shrimp – crunchy and yummy
- Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes – little tomatoes with a cream cheese filling
- Jalapeno Poppers – spicy jalapenos filled with a cream cheese filling and baked
- Baked Taquitos – filled with shredded chicken and cheese.
- Crab Stuffed Mushrooms – Crab, bacon and cheese.
- Salami and Cheese Pinwheels – Puff pastry baked with chopped salami and shredded cheese.
Yep! You need some healthy foods too. At the end of the day (or game) you’ve got to still feel good about yourself. Plus many of these taste so amazing, you’re not going to feel like you’re sacrificing.
Baked Corn Tortilla Chips are perfect with all those salsas you are going to be making! This is a chip you can feel good about.
Okay, so these treats aren’t technically an appetizer. But you’ve got to include a few sweets. Right??? If it makes you feel any better you can make these in a mini form and call them appetizer desserts! You can pick a couple of sweets to put out and your family and friends will be happy!
Confetti Cupcakes have a hidden surprise inside! They are filled with sprinkles and you can fill them with your team’s colors.
You might want to include a gluten free dessert too. Coconut macaroons are gluten free and are loved by all.
