Fire up the grill and load up on chips and fruit salad. College football is well underway, and the fans need to eat to keep their nerves down as the clock slowly runs down. Score big this football season and try these delicious gameday food ideas for the next watch party you host.
There are some foods you have to serve on gameday, like burgers, hot dogs, or pizza. But with months dedicated to cheering your team on, there needs to be something new on the menu. Place a halved cheese stick at the base of an undone crescent roll, placing pepperonis along the rest of the dough. Roll up and coat in egg wash before baking–and that’s it! Once out of the oven, serve with marinara sauce between plays.
Loaded cheese fries may not be a healthy option, but that won’t stop anyone from digging in during halftime. Sour cream and homemade cheese sauce envelop the tasty combination of seasoned fries, ground beef, and additional toppings like bell peppers or onion.
Baked mozzarella sticks served with marinara sauce are a classic appetizer that any football fan will be happy to eat. The melted cheese pull as you half the sticks will make your mouth water. To serve up, simply halve mozzarella cheese sticks. Alternate placing the cheese sticks in an egg wash and a bowl of bread crumbs with seasoning. Bake until the sticks are gooey and the bread crumbs are golden brown.
