Game Day is as much about food as it is about the games. Ever wonder why so many non-sports foodies show up at your family viewing party? While football and basketball shaped foods and team-based themes are nice, we pulled together some staple recipes to help you please your game day fans.
Guests love to sample a little of everything, so keep the burgers bite-sized. We like our sliders seasoned with Boomerang Jack Steak Rub and a little garlic pepper mayonnaise. Hamburgers are just the thing for customizing with any number of spices. You could season them with Rub-A-Dub BBQ Seasoning Mix and top off with crumbled blue cheese. Sprinkle with Taco Taco Seasoning Mix and with grilled peppers for a south of the border flare.
A steaming pot of homemade chili is an absolute essential for any game day viewing party. Serve dishes of homemade chili with onions, cheese, diced tomatoes, or set up a make-your-own chili hot dog station for everyone to enjoy. There’s no easier way to get steaming bowls of chili on the table than Phil’s Famous Vegetarian Chili Mix. Braise some ground beef and add it right in.
No game day party platter can ever be considered complete without several dips on hand. The delicious gourmet spice blends at Strawberry Tree Farms can turn sour cream, yogurt, or simple mayonnaise into a gourmet snack in no time at all. Giddy-Up Ranch Gourmet Seasoning Mix is our most popular blend for dips, followed by Italian Bread Dipping Blend.
