Need a game plan for hosting a tailgate or viewing party? From spirit-inspired game day recipes to celebratory drinks and crowd-pleasing party decorations, we’ve got you covered.

Winning Recipes for Your Football Party

Game day food is the real MVP of the party. When planning the menu, it’s all about finger foods, dips and all-time fan favorites (think chicken wings). Try something delicious and easy that everyone will want to get their hands on, like our Slow-cooked BBQ Turkey Sliders or Oven-baked Chili Cheese Dogs. And what’s game day without Classic Beer Cheese Dip? If you’re looking for something a little lighter, try our Veggie Jars with Basil Parmesan Yogurt Dip or our Everything Bagel Seasoned Yogurt Dip served with fresh vegetables or bagel crisps. Bring extra spirit to the table by turning food you’re already making into your own Snack Stadium. And don’t forget the sweets. Our Game Day Cake Pops will have guests hoping for overtime.
