Whether you’re a die-hard fan or unbiased on which team wins, there’s no denying that good food goes hand in hand with spectator sports. Game day gatherings with close friends or family members are usually low key and high fun. If you feel pressure to produce some good food to go along with the game, never fear. We’ve compiled a list of effortless foods that are sure to make everyone’s taste buds happy. Without further ado, here are the best foods for game day Sundays.
A Classic: Chips and Dip
Chips and dip are a combo made in food heaven. The chip aisle at the grocery stores is full of options for potato chip- and tortilla chip-lovers alike. Pick up some bags of yours or your family’s favorite to pair with a homemade dip, layer up for nachos, or even add a special crunch to a sandwich.
People’s taste buds differ, so it may be best to put out an assortment of chip and dip options. Whether the best dip is artichoke dip, taco dip, queso, guacamole, dill dip, enchilada dip, or French onion dip is to be determined, but the options are truly limitless. Many of these dips can be super easy to whip up and even more guilt free than you realize. Look for recipes that fit the bill online, or create a new concoction of your own. Either way, these snacks are foolproof for game day satisfaction.
Pizza, Pizza, Pizza
Without a doubt about it, one of the best foods for game day Sundays has to be pizza. Where would the world be without that sliver of cheesy, crusty goodness? Ordering in pizza is simple and effective for a busy night, but consider homemade pizza to make this day extra special. Smaller personal pizzas or larger family-size pizzas should do the trick. If anyone needs gluten-free or dairy-free options, a variety of alternative recipes are available to create the perfect game day pizza. Consider cauliflower crust pizza or mini eggplant pizza to get in some veggies.
Sausage and Hotdogs: The Works
We know—you may be thinking that sausage and hotdogs are traditional for spring sports such as baseball and not colder-season sports such as football. But don’t let this idea pass you by. Spice up traditional hotdogs by magically turning them into a beloved hors d’oeuvre: those delish pigs-in-a-blanket. Or better yet, make up a batch of homemade mini corn dogs to fulfill nostalgia alongside stomachs.
