Game Day DIT

Whether you're cheering at a Friday night high school game, singing your alma mater's fight song on a Saturday morning or sporting your favorite player's number on a Sunday afternoon; chances are you might be doing so at a game day party or tailgate.  Game day and tailgating has become a weekend staple for many people.  We love getting together with friends and eating all the delicious game day food!

Game parties should be relaxed and fun, for everyone - even the host!  Take our DIT strategy for your next game day.  Do It Themselves (DIT) is our spin on DIY.  Check out our tips that can keep you out of the kitchen and instead let you enjoy the game with your guests!

A Bloody Mary Bar let's your guests make their cocktail just the way you like it.  You provide the mix and the garnishes and they customize until their heart, or glass is content!  Setup a station with our Spicy Bloody Mary Pitcher, plastic cups (who wants to wash dishes), a bucket of ice, small skewers and lots of garnishes such as Pickled Green Beans (check out this recipe), dill pickles, green olives, lime or lemon wedges, cocktail onions, hot sauce, celery stalks, cheese cubes, even small strips of crispy bacon!  The possibilities are endless.

Same concept as the Bloody Mary Bar; you make a batch of Traditional Chili and set out fixins' for their chili.  This allows guests to tailor a basic chili recipe as they like it, hot, mild or nuclear.  Set out hot sauce(s), jalapenos, cheese, corn chips, and sour cream.  What's the craziest thing you have put on your chili?  You could do the same thing in the way of a Nacho Bar!

How to Make Easy Blender Salsa and why you should!

Make recipes that are handheld like Pork BBQ Sliders or make our Greek Frittata into egg cups or muffins, just pour the egg mixture into a muffin tin that has been generously sprayed with non-stick spray and you have a handheld breakfast snack!  Fans can grab a bite and keep a hand free for a cold beverage or a game of corn hole!

Have you heard of the Snackadium?  This is for serious game day enthusiasts!  It's a football stadium built from game day snacks and food...Snack + Stadium = Snackadium!  Red Gold has a great guide on how to build one including links to some tasty snack recipes.  Check it out by clicking here.

Whether you are in the stands or the comfort of your couch, these Game Day DIT tips are sure to keep the crowd satisfied and lets you cheer your team to victory!
