Easy Game Day Spread
With another college basketball tournament just around the corner, we’re getting our brackets ready as well as lots of good food ideas to serve up. It’s safe to say we get just as excited about the food as we are about the basketball games. Partnering with Farm Rich, we’re sharing some of our favorite freezer to table appetizers and let me tell you; they are so super easy to pull together for game day.
How to Put Together a Game Day Spread
When it comes to serving your game day snacks and appetizers, we recommend creating a space where the food is easily accessible for all guests. We put together two great game day snack setups to showcase your game day food.
First, you can create a spread across a table; place food all around the table so guests (or kids) can access it from all sides. With Farm Rich products, you don’t need to add a lot of additional ingredient items, since they offer a variety of amazingly delicious appetizer ideas. I love that they are the perfect finger foods suited for both adults and kids, and are easy to grab and pop in your mouth. For the Farm Rich Homestyle Meatballs, I brushed them with a little honey and spicy barbecue sauce as soon as they came out of the oven. And I served the Mozzarella Sticks with marinara sauce. You can add your favorite dipping sauces and pair the delicious Farm Rich appetizers and snacks anyway you want to create your own custom-made game day spread. Be warned, TBH you may just forget about the game.
I’m also serving Loaded Potato Skins, made from real Idaho potatoes stuffed with cheddar cheese and bacon, along with Mozzarella Bites. You’ll want these new Farm Rich Grilled Cheese Sticks on your food table too; they are made with melty American cheese sandwiched between toasty white bread and are a good source of protein. We can’t get enough of them!
Farm Rich makes snacking fun, easy and super simple for a game day (and all the other times when you’re in need of something easy and good to eat). These products are great to have stocked in the freezer for those spur of the moment get-togethers when family and friends drop by hungry or after-school snacking.
Game Day Concession Stand
Another way to serve your game day appetizers is by setting up a game day buffet or game day concession stand up against a wall. For this idea, I pulled out a variety of stands to use for the food, treats, and game day accessories. I stopped by a party store to pick up game day decor and a few items to decorate the wall with. You don’t need a lot of items to pull this idea together since the focus is on the game and the food. We served the food on serving platters at varying heights, which allows the kids to quickly see and grab the items they want.
Serve your appetizers on paper food trays, which will make for an easy clean-up.
Add popcorn, fun straws, and basketball mementos for your guests.
Watching the games together as a family is something we enjoy doing, along with gathering around good food. Take the stress off of thinking you need fancy appetizers and a ton of supplies to put together your game day spread. With a few game day accessories and your favorite (or try a few new ones) Farm Rich products, you’ll be ready to watch some hoops in no time.
