Top 10 All Time Game Day Appetizers

If you are looking for the perfect recipe for Game Day we have got you covered. Here are our Top 10 BEST EVER Game Day Appetizers!

No game day party, get together or gathering is complete without a fabulous spread!  Chad and I are not sport fanatics, but we love a good game.  Even when it was just the two of us we had a tradition of having a fajita bar, salsa, guacamole and chips.  It was so much fun and so delicious.  When the food is good it seems to hurt a little less when your team loses, not that I would know anything about that.  Right Chad?

  9. I made the pepperoni puffs (which were fabulous). My daughter is a vegetarian and I decided to try making them with vegetables. I used olive oil and saute onions, peppers and mushrooms. Then Instead of adding the pepperoni I substituted the vegetables. Everything else I left as the recipe called for. Came out fabulous! She loved them.
