With the Super Bowl just days away, I thought it would be the perfect time to do a round-up of some of my favorite game day recipes! Below you’ll find versatile, delicious recipes with tips on serving & prepping so you’re not stuck in the kitchen all day and can enjoy quality time with friends & family!
If you’ve got any questions on these recipes, feel free to shoot me a DM over on @thechutneylife or leave a comment on this blog post!
Tip: Marinate these wings up to 24 hours ahead of time to make Game Day a little easier. The accompanying sauce can be made 3-4 days ahead of time. My tip is to store the sauce in the same container you plan on serving it in.
This recipe is a favorite of mine to serve to a crowd! Try to get your hands on some Stone Fire or Brooklyn Bred pizza crust if you can! If not, I’ve used the refrigerated pizza dough from Pillsbury and it works great too! Baking the crust for 4-5 minutes in the oven, directly on the rack before you top it off- will give you a great crust! The beans and sauce can be made 48 hours in advance! Just bring the beans to room temp before serving so they warm up in the oven quicker!
If you can find mini buns, these would be great as sliders! The burgers can be marinated, made into patties, and placed in the fridge the day before, and the Cilantro Jalapeño Sauce can be made 2-3 days in advance. I like to make the buttery tandoori onions the same day! If you have one of those plug-in electric griddles, it would work great to keep the burgers warm, and the buns toasty. Guests can assemble their own burgers! Put the Cilantro Jalapeño Sauce in a squeeze bottle for less of a mess too!
I’ve been making this for years and it’s always a hit! You can make this earlier in the day and then bake it right before guests arrive so its hot and bubbly. You can also bake it and then transfer it to an IP to keep it warm and serve easier.
Simple, flavorful and so so delicious. I like to think of this as upgraded desi garlic bread! You can use smaller bread like a baguette so it’s more bite-size! They pack a ton of flavor!
These not only look SUPER cute but the filling is a no-cook, no-bake one which makes the recipe nice and easy! You can mix the filling 24 hours ahead of time and then just add the cheese before you’re ready to bake!
This recipe is a hit EVERY time because it’s soul-satisfying. Its creamy, spicy, and great addition to wings, pizzas, and sandwiches!
You might not think “game day” food when you hear of lasagna but this is SO easy to serve to a crowd and can be left right in the instant pot on the warm mode so guests can serve themselves. With all the other snack food that is popular on game day, it’s nice to have a heartier option!
You can make the stuffing for these 1-2 days ahead of time, bake them the day of and then just keep them covered on the warming mode in the oven until ready to serve! You can add a slice of cheese to make them more fun or switch out the regular potato for the sweet potato!
These are so DELICIOUS and easy to whip together! You can make them on the stovetop and then keep them warm in the oven until guests arrive!
