8 Game Day Recipes:  A round-up of my favorite gameday recipes.  From drinks to breakfasts snacks and meals there is something for everyone.

Yay College Football season has begun.  The first games were Thursday, but my team plays Saturday.   I love football season it's one of my favorite sports to watch and I like to have snacks and/or meals to go with the games.  I thought it would be great to share some of my favorite gameday recipes.  I mostly enjoy these recipes during football season, but they are great for watching any sport.

Homemade Bloody Mary Mix:  A simple bloody mary mix made from tomato paste.

Nothing's like a spicy bloody mary to help you wake up.  With 6 AM kickoff (we're 6 hours--5 when daylight savings ends--behind eastern standard time) on Saturdays they are necessary.  My husband recently bought us an espresso machine so I hope to share some espresso recipes during football season this year.  Stay tuned.

Loco Moco:  White rice smothered in brown gravy and a beef patty topped with a fried egg.  The Hawaiian breakfast of champions.

Enjoy a Hawaiian breakfast of rice topped with a beef patty and fried egg smothered in brown gravy.  Loco Moco is a great gameday breakfast whether you're at home or tailgating.

Bacon Wrapped French Toast:  Sweet french toast sticks wrapped in crunchy, salty bacon.  A great hand held breakfast.

I love bacon for breakfast...anytime really.  Nothing says football like bacon.  This is an easy breakfast finger food for early morning football snacking.  It can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen until ready to bake.  Then, it only takes 15 minutes in a 350 degree F oven to have a delicious crisp morning snack or breakfast on the go (time will vary if baking from frozen).

Bacon Pecan Maple Sticky Buns:  Wow!  Bacon and pecan topped cinnamon buns with a sticky maple syrup glaze.  A fantastic start to gameday.

These are not health food but will certainly make early morning football viewing a treat.  These buns are decadent and delicious.  Made with 3 sticks of butter, 1 1/2 cups of sugar/maple syrup, and 1 pound of bacon these are not ideal for everyday consumption, but great for a special gameday treat.

French Onion Dip:  A slightly beefy, very oniony, sour cream dip perfect for snacking.  Dad will love it.  It makes a great gameday snack too.

Late morning and afternoon games need to be served with dip.  When it's late enough to not want breakfast anymore; dips are a perfect snack food for gameday.  This is a homemade version of my favorite potato chip dip.  It's beefy, oniony, creamy, and delicious.

Loaded Baked Potato Dip:  A dip made with sour cream, green onions, cheese, and bacon bits.  It's like a loaded baked potato on a chip.  #footballsnack #gamedaysnack

This dip is like a loaded baked potato on a chip.  When it makes an appearance at a gameday party it disappears in no time.  What's not to love?  It's made with football snacking staples; potato chips, sour cream, cheese, and bacon.  I think this could easily be called gameday in a dip.

If you like Loaded Baked Potato Dip then you will love these skins.  They are basically just dip on hollowed out pieces of baked potato.  They may be simple, but they taste awesome.  Again, bacon and potato products are great gameday foods.

Slow Cooker Roast Beef Sandwiches

Most of our football watching is over by late afternoon, but I know that's not the case for most of the U.S. so I had to include a meal in my gameday round up.  During a football game, simple slow cooked meals and sandwiches are the best (you don't want to spend too long in the kitchen and food that doesn't require utensils is preferred).  This recipe incorporates slow cooked beef, beer, and sandwiches making it a staple for football fare.

Sit back, watch some football, and enjoy.

Go Pirates!
