With the big game right around the corner, it’s time to start prepping our viewing party menu! Traditionally, I love to pull out all my husband’s faves from dips and chips to mini tacos and of course, wings! There really isn’t a better time to serve up a tray of delicious wings than the year’s biggest football game, am I right? My daughter even loves wings so it’s a family touch down!
I always tell friends who ask how I “do it all” for parties that one of the secrets is keeping food prep to a minimum. You might make one or two homemade recipes but having a few “secret plays” helps give you time to set up your viewing party and actually enjoy it yourself. My new secret for delicious wings? Cooked Perfect Premium Fire Grilled Wings! They have a zesty herbs and spice blend on the chicken that is so good; it’s the perfect amount of heat without being too spicy. They’re grilled over an open fire to lock in natural juices and come fully cooked and ready to heat in the oven! They aren’t breaded so you can feel a little better about what you’re serving! You’ll find them in the freezer section (location details below) so you can stock up now for the big game!
Just prep the Cooked Perfect Premium Fire Grilled Wings per package instructions and pair with your other fave football foods. I like to serve up pretzels and chips for dipping but also celery and carrot sticks. I suggest a few fun dips like guacamole, hummus, or bean dip. Keep it simple and delicious and your guests will love you!
As for decorations, top your food table (even if it’s just a coffee table) with a fun green paper or cloth. I found a football themed table runner paper that is perfect for easy clean-up! Turf coasters from the party store and a football dish for serving were great finds! Head to the party store and take a look at this year’s football section. Pick up fun décor to scatter around and liven up your party food table! It’s truly the little details that make a party super fabulous!
One other football viewing party suggestion I have is to consider having mini baskets or containers for guests to fill up with their wings and other favorite bites. Then they can return to their seat and watch the game! This helps prevent a lot of “up and down” while trying to watch the game (or the commercials, haha). You might even consider tucking one of those little wet wipe packs down in each basket so guests can wipe hands clean right on the spot. This is especially helpful if you have kids at your party.
Head out and find these Cooked Perfect Premium Fire Grilled Wings! I have no doubt you’ll love them as much as I do. From game nights to movie nights and everything in between, these are definitely a go-to party appetizer!
