The Big Game is coming up, but to be honest I’m not a huge football fan. I am, however, all about watching the commercials and half time show. So, Sunday Funday becomes Big Game Sunday and everyone comes over. Some are football fans, some are commercial fans, and some like to tune in for The Puppy Bowl instead. (It’s the cutest thing ever!)
No matter the reason people come, I like to make sure that I have my playbook ready for some top-notch game day recipes. Especially since I have a lot of friends with different tastes, and I don’t want the same ol’, same ol’ recipes on the counter. Nope, I want to get creative and make the menu as memorable as the event. So, with a little help from Howard and the Mr. Food Test Kitchen, we came up with a great playbook for this years Big Game.

We always have to start our game day recipes off with some appetizers. A few favorites, but with a twist. Check out these appetizer plays, and tell us which ones are your favorite in the comments!
