Foodie Friday: Up Your Football Food Game!

Happy days are here again in my household. Of course, I am talking about Mr. Shop This! He has both baseball (Go Cubbies!) and football to watch. Pretty exciting for sports fans. All of that TV and tailgating is hard work and makes one hungry. Time to feed the fans. 

Sip. Savor. Repeat. Shop the NEW Wine & Cheese Collection from Le Creuset!

HERE: 19 Game Day Recipes & Cooks' Tools 

Football Cupcakes
I love to start with dessert first! These cute cupcakes will get the party going, and you don't even have to make them. Designed exclusively for Williams-Sonoma by More Cupcakes....my favorite Chicago cupcakery! A great idea to send to a college student.

Blue Cheese Guacamole Stuffed Mushrooms with Buffalo Sauce
Everyone loves good Guac, but it is kind of expected. The general big bowl of guacamole also encourages douple dipping. This one bite recipe eliminates the double dip. 
Half Baked Harvest

Buffalo Chicken Tacos
Like a deconstructed Buffalo Chicken Wing, but so much better. Can you believe that I have never had wings? It has something to do with my bird phobia. I realize the world loves them, and your guests will love this recipe too.
Gimme Some Oven 

Caramelized Onion Hush Puppies
Southern Tailgaters are no strangers to this fan favorite.  Surprise them with this tasty twist
On Sugar Mountain

S'mores Cookies On a Stick
Everyone loves a cookie! This one is fun for both big and little kids.
Bakers Royale

Spinach, Artichoke  + Bacon Stuffed Soft Pretzels
Once again, this is how you get around double dipping. Take everyone's favorite hot dip and stuff a fresh homemade pretzel. Doesn't this sound like the best sandwich ever?
Half Baked Harvest

Honey Sriacha Chicken Flatbread
A sweet and spicy combo with a refreshing bite of cilantro. This dish promises to be crunchy but chewy, soft and melty. Most of all it is super flavorful and oh so good looking.
How Sweet Eats

Mon Oncle Barbeque
Grilling on the go. This briefcase barbecue is made for tailgating!

Sweet Potato Skins
I have never tried these. Don't they sound interesting? The mix of the sweet potato with the spicy salsa verde is a nice twist on the classic appetizer.

Pull Apart Pretzel Skillet With Beer Cheese Dip
The only dip you need.
Host The Toast

Onion Rings With Sriacha Bacon
Yes, you read that right! If you love a sweet and savory bite, this is it. The bacon wrapped rings have been dipped in a honey, soy, and sriracha glaze. Oh boy!
Kirbie's Cravings

S'mores Popcorn
This dish changes everything. It is the thing to bring or serve for those who do not enjoy cooking. I wish I had thought of this.

Crockpot Carne Asada Beer Chili
Every year I try to improve my chili recipe. This is the one I am going to try this Fall. As the author says: "Hello, avocado, jalapeƱos, cheddar cheese, grilled corn, green onions, FRITOS and maybe even some sour cream or greek yogurt, if you’re into it!" Enough said.
Half Baked Harvest

Kalua Pork Sliders
Made in the slow cooker, this meat is flavorful and juicy. Perhaps it is the coarse Hawaiian Sea Salt, the recipe calls for. It is all topped with a blueberry mago salsa, which makes it super fresh. Find the Sea Salt at Amazon
How Sweet Eats 

Touchdown Brownies
These are sure to be a gameday winner. They are super fudgy and loaded with caramel, pecans and pretzels.  Find that cute Table Runner at Swoozies and the recipe at
The Baker Mama

Turkey Meatball Sandwich
{ Gluten Free Dairy Free }
Doesn't everyone love a good meatball? These are for the GF guests on your list. They will really appreciate your thoughtfulness! They taste good, too!
Heather Christo

Rolling Cooler
A preppy plaid cooler is game day ready (along with the perfect travel blanket.) What a great gift for the professional tailgater!
Mark & Graham

Raspberry Chipotle Black Bean Dip
I don't find bean dip very interesting. This recipe changes my mind. The idea of pairing smokey chipotle with sweet raspberry sounds fabulous!
Minimalist Baker 

Impossibly Easy Mini Buffalo Chicken Pies
With a title like that, these might be worth a try. They are made with old school Bisquick!
Betty Crocker
