Hey Loves! Since the 2019 NFL Season kicked off this weekend, I wanted to share some football game food ideas that are perfect for any football game, tailgating, or Super Bowl Party! They are super simple to make but very delicious and will have everyone giving you compliments for how cute the food is for any football themed gathering!

I made a cook with me video so you can make these easy DIY football game treats with me, and see step-by-step how I make each of these recipes. Hope it helps you, as I share some tips and hacks along the way. All of the ingredients and directions are listed below for you too!

"PIGSKINS" IN A BLANKET! SO EASY TO MAKE!! NFL Football game food ideas for any football party tailgate or Super Bowl party food recipes - easy DIY treats for football games Brianna K bitsofbri Bits of Bri blog pigs in a blanket stadium dip football brownies Cleveland Ohio stay at home mom

Pigskins in a Blanket

These are so easy to make, but look so cute! The kids love them, and they are actually my husbands favorite.

Ingredients:

  • Crescent Dough
  • 1 Package little smokies
  • Easy Cheese Spray
  • Cooking Spray
  • Green scrapbook paper

NOTE: For party planning, 1 package of crescent dough makes ~16 smokies, which is about 1/2 the little smokies package. If you get 2 packages of dough, you’ll use most if not all of the ~32 smokies.

Directions:

  • Coat baking tray with cooking spray.
  • Slice crescent dough into long triangular strips about 1 inch wide at the top.
  • Wrap each smokie in the crescent dough and spread evenly on baking tray.
  • Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Let cool completely.
  • Top with Easy Cheese in football thread design.
  • Cut green scrapbook paper to fit serving tray. Set pigskins on top of the paper, so it looks like footballs on top of a field.
  • You can serve these with ketchup, BBQ, mustard, or any other favorite dipping sauce.

And I thought of this hack while planning these recipes, but buying pretty scrapbook paper to fit the theme of your party and using it to line your serving plates or trays is such an inexpensive way to decorate! Scrapbook paper is usually 25-50 cents, so you can really make your food and treats look so cute for not much money at all! I picked up some buffalo check paper to use for under Christmas cookies, but you could truly do this for any holiday or party theme and it’s so simple!

STADIUM DIP! SO EASY TO MAKE! NFL Football game food ideas for any football party tailgate or Super Bowl party food recipes - easy DIY treats for football games Brianna K bitsofbri Bits of Bri blog pigs in a blanket stadium dip football brownies Cleveland Ohio stay at home mom

Stadium Dip

This is sure to be a crowd please because it looks adorable, and the best part is, you can customize this to have whatever dips and dippers that are your favorites.

Ingredients:

  • 2 12 x 8 inch disposable aluminum trays
  • 1 21 x 15 baking pan with lip (linking one on amazon here)
  • 1 ziplock bag (I used snack size)
  • Aluminum foil
  • 1 Pint of Sour Cream
  • Guacamole Dip
  • Queso Dip*
  • Spinach and Artichoke Dip*
  • Chopped Veggies**
  • Tortilla Chips**
  • Pretzels**
  • Baby Carrots
  • Black + Green Olives

*NOTE: As far as dips, I would recommend using guacamole for the field, but for the end zone, you can use any sort of dip you like- salsa, hummus, quest, spinach and artichoke, etc.

**NOTE: Likewise, you can use any sort of dippers you like- sliced bread, crackers, veggies etc. As long as you have variety, it give this dip the “stadium” fan effect.

Directions:

  • Wrap XL baking pan in aluminum foil.
  • Tape one of the 12 x 8 trays in the center of the XL baking pan.
  • Reserve two heaping spoonfuls of sour cream in a ziplock bag.
  • Spread the remaining sour cream as the first layer in the 12 x 8 tray.
  • Spread the queso dip over the sour cream.
  • Spread the spinach and artichoke dip as the “end zones” of the tray, about 1/4 from the edge.
  • Spread the guacamole around the center of the tray as the field.
  • Cut a small corner off the zip lock bag, and pipe the sour cream as the yard line markers over the guacamole.
  • Put green and black olives on the baby carrots as helmets, and place them as players on the guacamole field. There are lots of versions of this dip on Pinterest, but I got the idea for the olive helmets and players from the blog Taking Care of Monkey Business. So cute! And her snack stadium is pretty epic. You should check it out!
  • Refrigerate dip until close to the party or game.
  • Put veggies and chip dippers around the empty taped on tray.
  • Put guacamole field in the center when you are ready to serve the stadium dip for the big game!
