Almost everyone’s favorite time of year has just begun: football season! Who doesn’t love to don their team’s colors, have the whole family over, and shout at the television together? But it’s not just about the sport anymore. Football season has become a showcase of great food and drinks, too. Every year people compete to bring the best appetizer, and hosts compete to cook the most mouthwatering main course; and every year there is a clear winner.
The dishes that win can be distinguished among the others by the fact that they are gone. There is no going back for seconds or thirds of said dish, because every single person at the gathering took a huge first helping; but it’s not their fault! The food was just that good! Whoever made that dish will be getting compliments for days, and you could be that person! Here are a few amazing recipes for you to take to the next game day party you attend!
