Score Big with These Favorite Football Party Foods

By Megan Myers, January 25, 2014  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Megan Myers

Growing up in Wisconsin, football is in my blood. Not a Sunday would go by without the game on, and with it, plenty of snacks and good eats. I still have fond memories of the special submarine sandwiches we’d have during the big game!

These days I live too far away to pick up one of those subs, but I still love to have good food to nosh on during the plays. In my opinion, no football party is complete without nachos, dips, and of course, chicken wings!

I’ve gathered a few of my favorite recipes to help you get your party planning on for the big game.

Can anyone recommend some low-fat side dishes, like salads or vegetables, that could be made ahead of time, be easy to eat, and served at a game party?
