Ok… so maybe your favorite team isn’t playing in this year’s BIG SUNDAY GAME….

And yes, that was a pretty weird title. Lets just say, a certain bunch of lawyers from a professional sports organization (that shall remain nameless) won’t allow us to use the word “SUPER” and also the word “BOWL” right next to each other when we are describing food and stuff for a certain SUNDAY PARTY that is coming up.

Well… we don’t want to cause any trouble… we just want to give you a few ideas on what awesome food to make for your next big honking sports party!!!



Game day Meatballs


Lingonberries and Meatballs

Lingonberries are to Swedish people as what blackberries are to Americans. Lingonberry Jam is normally used as a relish but here we are using it as the main ingredient in a yummy game-day sauce for our meatballs to marinade in. (Recipe Linky)


BBQ Meatballs in the Slow Cooker

Just use your favorite BBQ sauce and a crock pot for a fantastic (and SUPER easy) game day treat.

Deluxe Little Smokies with Meatballs

Crock-pot cooking is a good way to make life easy on game day. Load up your ingredients, set the heat and you are good to go.

Real Swedish Meatballs

This recipe is a little more involved than the average one i talk about, but I think the homemade taste more than makes up for that. For this one you will need your skillet and your slow cooker.

Jackie’s Famous Meatballs

Mostly Seriously Awesome! Easy crock pot cooking and very tasty. Start about 3-4 hours before kickoff.

Nothing says football like great wings and these drumsticks are hard to beat as they’ve been “crowned” with an incredible sauce made from Crown Royal Canadian whisky. Grab one and cheer hard!
(Recipe Linky)

Spicy Asian Chicken Wings

Mix Honey and Soy Sauce with the right spices and you can easily make these.Yum!
(Recipe Linky)


Cheesy Poof Wings

Yeah, I Like Cheesy Poofs, and one day I started thinking about that wonderful, tasty, orange powder stuff that sticks to your fingers and auto-magically flocks itself to anything clean. Mmmm… finger licking good.
(Recipe Linky)

Tangy Hot Wings

This is a pretty easy recipe if you have some frozen oven roasted chicken wings in the freezer. Just plug in your slow cooker grab your wings and add only two ingredients. (Recipe Linky)

Garlic and Beer Wings

Here is a quick and easy wing grilling recipe that I think you will like. Very few ingredients and not too tough. Oh! And it has Beer Seasoning!
(Recipe Linky)

Orange Chicken Wings

Chickity China, the Chinese chicken, Have Some Orange Wings and Your Brain Starts Tickin’… Don’t wait One Week… make these today!
(Recipe Linky)

Sweet Heat Raspberry Wings

These Raspberry Chicken Wings are an original recipe of mine and require only three ingredients to make the sauce. (Recipe Linky)




Nothing better on a Super Sunday than something wrapped in bacon!


Bacon Wrapped Potato Skewers

Bacon Wrapped Potato Skewers are very easy to prep and can be done in your smoker or on your grill over indirect heat.
(Recipe Linky)


Bacon Wrapped Turkey Legs

AKA… “the Swanson”. It’s a turkey drumstick wrapped with bacon (and that alone is a great reason to cook it). (Recipe Linky)



Beer -n- Bacon Wrapped Chicken Drumsticks

Bacon wrapped chicken will always be a favorite among football tailgaters everywhere, but introduce a good quality beer and it adds a whole ‘nother level of greatness that I encourage you to try.

Smoky Cheddar Jalapeño Poppers

Jalapeño peppers, Smoked Cheddar Brats and Bacon made on your grill.

I Triple Dog Dare You

This baby is one mega-massive-meat dog made with three (count ’em) three meats and pepper jack cheese. (Recipe Linky)


Pake’s Tater Tots

A pound of tater tots, a pound of bacon, a mess of brown sugar grilled to perfection. You’re guests will love this one!
(Recipe Linky)

Pineapple Bacon on a Stick

I have made all sorts of kabobs but this simple one is still one of my most requested. Try it next time you grill. We bet you will be a fan as well. (Recipe Linky)

Shrimp in a Bacon Blanket

What could be better than shrimp on the grill?? That’s right! Shrimp marinated in special sauce and wrapped in BACON!
(Recipe Linky)

Bacon Beer Brats

A great way to make your Sunday better is to combine BACON, BEER and BRATS. (can you think of a better way to spend a weekend? if you can… email me cause we need to hang out!!!)
(Recipe Linky)

Beer Can Bacon Burgers (Monster Tailgate Burgers)

I’m sure you have had normal bacon cheese burgers, but these bad boys are full 3/4 pound pound beef mega burgers that are stuffed with whatever you love most. I personally love to add ham, onions, peppers, mushrooms and pepper jack cheese, (and yes… even more bacon) but you are welcome to stuff this monster with the finest meats and cheeses thru-out the land. Some call these “Beer Can Stuffed Bacon Burgers”
