Top 10 Favorite Football Worthy Appetizers

It’s almost time!! Fall seems to bring a variety of emotions for people when it comes to the temperatures. Many embrace the crisp weather while many others still cling onto the summer sun. But fall also brings another quality that seems to create a divide in the masses: those that relish football and those that cannot wait to to stop hearing people talk about football.

While I could care less about professional football, my heart yearns for the start of college football. With the first college gameday this weekend my kindred spirits and I are already planning for the kickoff, most importantly what am I going to eat? After posting a list of my top 10 favorite Buckeye-inspired peanut butter and chocolate treats I decided to switch over the the savory side with a list of my favorite appetizers.

These 10 appetizers are perfect for shoveling into your face while cheering on your favorite football team or stuffing your face in order to endure the person sitting next to you exclaiming at the TV. Whichever side you land on, this is a win-win situation.


1. Cherry Chipotle BBQ Pork Nachos – These nachos are a homemade version of my favorite BBQ mix up from my time living in Memphis. Great to share but just as likely to be devoured solo.

2. Spinach Artichoke Goat Cheese Ball – Your favorite spinach artichoke cheese dip now comes in cheese ball form! But if you prefer I do have a more dippable version as well.

4. Caramelized Onion Dip – Sure you could buy a tub of this from the store, but I guarantee it’s worth the extra effort. Made lighter with Greek yogurt too!

[…] I dislike college football games that are not on Saturdays. While I adore watching soccer, the main reason I am more devoted to college-level American football is because it’s easier to manage into my schedule, as I can set aside one day a week for 3 months. While some teams have always have had games on Thursday, most are on Saturday.
