Game Day Recipes

These game day recipes are perfect for any sports event all year round. I hope you'll try the football game recipes - they're a hit with adults and kids on game day.

45 Yard Line Brownies

3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup milk
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)

Preheat oven to 350F degrees (180C). Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in sugar and cocoa, then remove from heat. Add vanilla and eggs and mix together well. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, and baking powder). Add flour mixture and milk to chocolate mixture bit by bit (add, stir, add stir...). Then stir in nuts.

Grease a 15 X 10" baking pan. Pour brownie mixture into pan. Bake in oven for 20 minutes (poke a toothpick in the middle and if it comes out clean, you know it's ready). Cool for 10 minutes. Cut into squares and serve on game day.

Grilled Chicken and Eggplant Sandwich Rolls

chicken breast
extra virgin olive oil
grilled eggplant
grilled red bell peppers
sun-dried tomatoes
Kaiser rolls

Slice, flatten, and grill chicken breast with a little salt and pepper and olive oil. Next grill eggplant and red bell peppers the same way and then slice up.

Cut Kaiser rolls in half and top with chicken breast, eggplant, bell peppers, and sun-dried tomatoes. Add rocket and spread a dab of mayonnaise. Store in an airtight container in the fridge and carry to the game in a cooler.

Easy Baked Beans

1 large can baked beans or 3 small cans
fried bacon 3-4 pieces (cut up)
2 onions, finely chopped
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar

Mix all together and spoon into a large glass pan. Bake at 350F degrees for 45 minutes.

Make this the night before. Tastes great hot or cold.

Game Day Dip with Bread Sticks

1 8-ounce container Philadelphia cream cheese
1/4 cup chives, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper

In a bowl, mix ingredients together. Then place dip in an airtight container. Take with you on game day and serve with Italian crispy pencil-thin dry bread sticks (called grissini).

Broiled Barbecue Chicken

3 pounds chicken drumsticks
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
salt and pepper
1/2 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar

Rinse chicken and pat dry. Brush chicken with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Make barbecue sauce by stirring remaining ingredients together in a small saucepan over low heat and cooking for 2 minutes.

Broil chicken for 15 minutes on one side, then brush on barbecue sauce and broil for 5 minutes more. Turn drumsticks and repeat on the other side. (Tip: place broiler pan about 4 inches below element to avoid spitting and cook chicken properly.)

Remove broiler pan and let cool. Wrap aluminum foil around ends of drumsticks so they're easy to grab and eat. Place in an airtight container and serve at your next football tailgate party.
