Big Game Buffet
Get the work done in advance, lay it all out and then relax! Let guests help themselves to a generous tray of assorted veggies alongside Roasted Tomato & Fennel Dip, a spicy-sweet combo of chili pepper paste, garlic and sweet oven-roasted tomatoes. These make-ahead Pork Roast, Pear & Caramelized Onion Sandwiches can be cut in halves or thirds for tasty hand-held nibbles between cheers. When the heat is on, our Butter Chicken Pizza can be pulled hot from the oven, sectioned on a large cutting board and served alongside plenty of napkins (in team colours, of course!). And whether the day ends in sweet victory or sweet sorrow, these Spicy Mexican Brownies cut into bite-size squares will leave your sports fans feeling satisfied.
Nothing like a little novelty to keep the cheering squad in good spirits! These stick-ready nibbles will keep your guests munching happily throughout the game. Prosciutto, Olive & Orange Skewers look as good as they taste and take minutes to assemble. Mostly make-ahead, these Curried Shrimp with Avocado & Mango Skewers involve tossing shrimp in the frying pan before serving. Meanwhile, our frozen Angus Beef Meatballs make these Greek Meatball Kabobs a cinch to prepare (make a double batch because they go fast). Finally, Glazed Fruit Skewers with Strawberry-Yogourt Dip make a fun finale to this game-day gathering.
Indoor Tailgate Party
Classic tailgating fare never goes out of style, and this menu focuses on better-for-you selections that still pack in exciting flavours. Start out early (or the day before) to make this zesty Slow Cooker Turkey Meatball Chili. Shredded cheese, cubed avocado and Greek yogourt allow guests to DIY their own chili toppings. For that tasty fried-chicken flavour, Crusted Grilled Chicken Drumsticks are sure to satisfy and they get even crunchier when they’re reheated in the oven. Set your favourite nacho chips alongside Fresh Grape Tomato Salsa made with zippy lime juice and jalapeños, while these Coffee Brownies will keep everyone’s energy up well into overtime.
All Vegged Out
This meatless game-day menu bats a thousand, we promise! Set out a tray of assorted chips and veggies alongside this creamy Sweet Corn Dip and watch everything disappear. Our Vegetarian 6 Bean Chili is made easy in the slow cooker; serve it in bowls or use it to top veggie dogs along with pickled jalapeños and shredded cheddar cheese. Like restaurant-style potato skins, our Vegetarian Stuffed Potatoes are fully loaded with sweet raisins, toasty pine nuts and a generous helping of Parmesan cheese. And everyone will cheer when you pass out these Double Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches as the game comes to an end.
