Game Day Party Recipes

Pizza Dip

Follow Me on Pinterest

The Big Game is the perfect excuse to invite some friends over and throw a party and any kind of game day party is going to need food! Forget about calling for pizza because these recipes are all easy to make so you can make a few of them to ensure that you do not run out mid way through the the game. Even if you are not throwing the party but are instead heading over to a party or even tailgating you can never go wrong bringing some food to share and your friends will never forget these tasty snacks! Below you will find some of my favourite snacks for the big game and they include a lot dips which have to be one of the best party foods around but there are also a few non-dip snacks and even some great healthy options. These snacks are definitely not restricted to the big football game and would go just as well when you have friends over to watch any kind of game whether it be football, hockey, basketball, baseball or even soccer; so crack some of these recipes out and make sure that not only do your friends not go home hungry but that they leave raving about the food more than the game!

Pizza Dip

The Pizza Dip recipe is a recent discovery but I was immediately addicted and requests keep coming in to make it again.


Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Although Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip is an old-y, it is a classic for a very good reason and the recipe is super easy too boot!


Bacon Double Cheese Burger Dip

This Bacon Double Cheese Burger Dip is inspired by the flavours of a bacon double cheese burger and it is perfect game day food! The fresh lettuce and tomato topping makes this hot cheese dip extraordinary, though completely optional.


Blue Cheese Guacamole

Not all dips have to be cheese based and Guacamole is a great example of one that is not. I always enjoy playing around with guacamole recipes and one of my latest experiments a Blue Cheese Guacamole turned out to be truly amazing!


Jalapeno Popper Dip

Dip recipes are certainly making the appearance on this list and this Jalapeno Popper Dip will not be left behind with the spicy jalapenos in a creamy melted cheese sauce topped with crunchy panko crumbs.


Artichoke Bread

With all of the amazing dips at you party for the big game you might just get tired of all that dipping so save your elbows and wrists the strain of dipping by baking the dip right into some bread like in this recipe for an Artichoke Bread.


Potato Skins

If you are looking for something other than a dip, you really cannot go wrong with Potato Skins which although they take a bit of time to make, the recipe is pretty easy and they are well worth it. One of the things that I like so much about potato skins is that you can fill or stuff them with anything you want and one of my favourites is a simple combo of melted cheese with bacon topped with sour cream. If you really want to get creative you could stuff them with the flavours of your favourite food such as pizza.


Jalapeno Poppers

Some more classic party food that is perfect for the big game are these Jalapeno Poppers which are pretty easy to make at home and they will disappear in seconds so make a lot!


Parmesan Crusted Baked Zucchini Sticks with Marinara Sauce

If you want, you can easily keep your game day appetizers on the healthier side and these Parmesan Crusted Baked Zucchini Sticks with Marinara Sauce would make a great start with their crispy baked on crust and a tasty sauce for dipping.


Greek 7 Layer Dip

Dips can be healthy too and this Greek 7 Layer Dip, which is a take on the classic 7 Layer Dip, just might be better than the original! The Mediterranean flavour combos in this dip are addictively good so make sure that you have lots of toasted pita wedges for dipping.

I have to admit that when I hear Super Bowl snacks I think of run of the mill junk food. All those dips look fabulous. I don't think I'm going to watch the superbowl, but I'll try some of those dips.

I have looked at the popper dip recipe so many times I'm surprised I don't have it memorized. I'm taking it as a sign that you reposted it for the Superbowl. I'm finally going to give it a go on Sunday. I'll let you know what I think. Thank you!

Your Pizza Dip is by far one of my favorite dips! I make it often and already on the menu for our Super Bowl party. I think I may need to add on that Bacon Double Cheeseburget dip too; that looks fabulous!
