Game-Day Recipes that Score

By Megan Myers, September 4, 2012  |  Meet the Blogger  |  More Posts by Megan Myers

Don’t get me wrong – I love taking in a game at the ballpark in the heat of summer, but when September rolls around I am more than ready to trade innings and home runs for quarters and touchdowns. Maybe it’s my Wisconsin roots and home team pride, or maybe it’s the opportunity to provide a delectable array of treats to nosh on week after week.

Of course, I don’t want to spend lots of time in the kitchen instead of watching the game. That’s why I rely on no-nonsense recipes to help me score big.

Pre-Game Prepped

Five-Spice Cranberry Chicken Wings Stuffd Potato Skins with Roasted Chicken, Onions and Sour Cream

Classic Baked Beans Deviled Eggs with Shrimp

Halftime Heroes

Sausage on a Bun with Pickled Pepper Relish Quick and Easy Pineapple and Pork Tacos

Turkey Pumpkin Chili

Dips for the Extra Point

Chipotle Mushroom and Goat Cheese Queso Eight-Layer Mediterranean Dip

Warm Broccoli Cheese Dip Green Pea Guacamole

OT Desserts

Pumpkin Pecan Cookies

Flourless Brownies Frosted Spiced Cupcakes

What’s in your playbook for high-scoring game day snacks?

@CANDY - Great question! I tend to tailgate in a parking lot as well and here are some of my faves that require minimal prep that you can simply throw on the grill. Cheddar-Stuffed Horseradish Burgers (http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/1647); Grilled Sausages with Peppers and Artichokes (http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/1047); Grilled Caprese Salad (http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2560). Here is a great option for dessert on the grill...Grilled Fig Salad (http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/540). Have a blast!

I have a sweet tooth but I am diabetic. Why doesn't the market carry sugar free treats? I can buy diabetic sweets everywhere except Whole Foods which makes me shop at other stores more often.
