Best Gameday Foods
If any of you are like me, I absolutely love planning and cooking food on gamedays to go with my usual bourbon drinks (we call them "football drinks" in my house.) I'm sure there are other threads about this topic already, but it's way more fun to start a new list.
A typical gameday at my house includes me and about 20 of my closest friends (from all SEC fanbases) so I'm used to cooking for crowds and usually have a good variety of things. I usually try to emulate the "tailgate" feel with finger foods, cornhole, coolers, and outdoor seating & TVs. Needless to say, I stock up on charcoal when on sale because I literally burn through it.
If you had one weekend to make an absolute feast of different gameday foods, what would it include?
Alternatively, if you had to pick just ONE food to share each weekend, what would that be?
Bonus points for recipes and/or pictures!
**** - sometimes I really miss the real southern football passion up here in Jersey!
I'll start with some more "unique" suggestions that are pretty easy to make:
Spicy Italian Crescent Ring (Pillsbury Recipe:)
Panini Bar: Put that old George Foreman to work, or any other panini press. These are all super easy and can be made ahead of time or let the guests make them:
1 - 12oz Frozen Lemonade Concentrate
1 - 12oz Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate
2 cups Unsweetened black tea
3 cups Bourbon (more if you are manly)
7 cups Water
1 cup Sugar
mix all until sugar dissolves
Little brown sugar
Wrap 1/2 stri.p bacon
Bake in oven
Lol at str.ip being censored
Core and slice jalapeno in half
Mix 50:50 cream cheese and shredded cheese
Stuff in pepper
Wrap in bacon.
Can also mix chorizo in the cheese
Bacon wrapped sweet potato bites
Cube sweet potatoes
Toss in a mix of melted butter, salt, cayenne pepper, ground cinnamon
Wrap in bacon
Sprinkle brown sugar on
Bake. Dip in syrup
Brown butter and bourbon rice krispie treats
Brown butter in pot
Add mini marshmallows, bourbon, vanilla extract, and salt
Add rice krispie
Garnish with sprinkle of salt
That's pretty common so won't post recipe
Lots more but thats off the top of my head right now
My goal in life is to watch a game at @tfk_fanboy crib one day.
Cola, SC. Come on over. If the weather is nice we'll hit Lake Murray that morning before kickoff
I’ll bring @BigDawgEatin and it’ll be a party haha 😂😂
but seriously…one day I’ll have to take you up on it.
That sounds awesome. Over the summer I've concocted the following Bourbon drink:
1 shot of preferred Bourbon - Shot size is up to you
1.5 shots of Ginger Ale
1 shot orange juice
.5 shot of Grapefruit juice
I'll have to try that. I've recently got into poloma so grapefruit profile is working for me
That slushy is killer on hot days. Use something cheap like Evan William black. I use Earl grey tea
I wasn't sure pink grapefruit juice would work, but it adds a nice complexity and balances the orange juice. I've experimented with the amount of grapefruit juice and have it dialed in now. The Ginger Ale adds a nice bite and effervescence. I'm looking forward to trying the slushy.
Almost anything from an LSU tailgate in Baton Rouge.
