NFL Draft Party

I am having an NFL Draft Party this Saturday and I was looking to serve some good munchies. Any game day recipies you can share would be great. Its lasts from 11-8 on Satruday so I am sure we will be cooking and eating all day.

  1. I assume that this is a "guy" thing; therefore, I will highly recommend Bonnie's Buffalo Chicken Dip served with "Scoops" not celery, easy to make and it will be a big hit (this recipe is all over the web and can be googled); I also have a delicious recipe for Oven Baked Asian Dry Rubbed Ribs if you want, also very easy and cooks just 2 hours at 300 degrees. Quesadillas would also be good but a lttle more labor intensive as far as the prep.

      Paul's right...make that dip! (but I would include celery 'chunks' along with the scoops to offer as a dipper)

    2. If you've got a grill you gotta have bratwurst and hot mustard. The perfect food with a cold beer.

      1. "Draft" beer and few tons of prime beef

        1. the corn dip in this recipe is great, and really easy to make. I don't eat or cook meat but the others look good too:

          1. Might be fun to do a "build your own pizza". You could make the dough, or buy premade.
            Then have lots of different ingredients out in bowls. You could have some "examples" written out (bbq chicken, white pizza) and named after players being drafted.

            1. Chili
              6' hoagies
              chips & salsa
              pork bbq
              fruit salad

                chili is great b/c you can make it in advance then sit back and chill...and everyone can do their own toppings...and it's almost impossible to ruin. I just looked for a recipe I loosely follow but could not find it - it's basically beef stew with poblano peppers, add beans towards the end. brown the beef (I flour it first), chopped onions, can of chopped tomatoes, poblanos, cumin, chili pepper, cayenne...let it go long and slow over low heat...add beans...that's about it
                I usually make a pot of white rice b/c I make my chili spicy.
                serve with shredded cheese, chopped onions, cilantro, sour cream, corn chips, etc.

                  oops. forgot to mention you should throw a beer in there too...something with substance

              2. since you said "munchies" I suggest some good brownies that you can all enjoy when the alleged pot smokers' names are called
