Looking For a Game Day Appetizer?

Great snacks are essential for the Big Game, and snack (or charcuterie) boards are one of the MVPs of game day parties and tailgates. With sweet and savory, eye-catching options carefully arranged for pro-level presentation, snack boards provide lots of choices that allow guests to build their own roster of delicious bites. If you’re already feeling like you could go all the way, be sure to try out our Snack Stadium. A field made of guacamole, plus salsa endzones surrounded by deliciously snacked out seating, provides the ultimate spread for game day grazing.

Let’s Get to the Game Plan

You can really put anything on your snack board…meats and cheeses, fruits and veggies, desserts, dips and many more yummy finger foods. And as you’ll see below, snack boards that feature similar items (e.g., various types of pizza, chips and dips, or chicken wings), or have a theme (e.g., football or basketball) can be especially fun. Here are some easy snack board recipes for game day, because we’re serious about tasty food (and we’ll leave the playing to your favorite team).

Laces are out and delicious is in when you form this cheese ball to look like a football, with chicken, cream cheese, nuts and more.

Charcuterie Cones

Whoever thought of this one really deserves a trophy. Guests can grab a paper cone filled with cheeses, nuts and more, and make a QB sneak straight to watching the game.
