I believe guests really appreciate a healthy alternative to classic game-day recipes (the typical potato skins, delivered pizza, chicken wings, indulgent dips, etc:). But if you’re wanting to go all out, this Hot Carmelized Onion Meatball Dip and Game Day Smoky Jarlsberg Dip Recipe is a big party hit.

How to make stuffed endive

Cream together goat cheese, chives, and a pinch of salt and pepper.

Press the cheese mixture inside the center of the endive leaf.

The best part … drizzle wth honey, sprinkle walnuts, and top with orange zest!

So what would my menu look like, if hosting a Game Day party?

First of all, I find that if everyone contributes, it’s really helpful. Being the hostess, of course I’ll fill in the gaps and make sure we have enough food, but delegation really helps take the pressure off of a reluctant entertainer. And also, we should focus a little on health and portion control (not always easy to do on rare, occasional celebrations).

  1. This looks amazing Sandy!! I totally agree, people really do appreciate a healthier alternative when it comes to food at get togethers. Thanks for including my mushrooms!

  2. Thanks for including my salad, Sandy! Every single looks so good I might freak out right now.

  3. This looks like such a refreshing change to the usual heavy menu. I’ll do all the “cooking” on Sunday as it’s just the two of us snuggled up to watch the game.
    BTW – thanks for the tip on the printable recipes – done and working.

  4. Looks scrumptious; I just might make for a “wild game feast” this weekend. Although I can imagine using either would be fine, the pictures and actual recipe calls for pecans but the recipe title has walnuts in it. Could you please clarify which one is preferred? Thanks and I really enjoy your blog! You have made me a far less “reluctant entertainer”. :)

    • Hi, Becky. I added in that I used pecans. Nuts are so intermixable, so either work. I usually use what I have in the cupboard! Thank you!

  5. Great menu! I’m drooling for that stuffed endive…wonderful.

    Hope y’all enjoy a day of family, friends and fun!

  6. Hi Sandy,

    Your appetizer looks luscious! And I love how it’s quite healthy – nuts, cheese, lettuce…perfect.

    And yes, I’ll be delegating. I always do. It really makes all the difference. And the nice thing is that my friends and family always want to bring something to help out.

    Oh my…portion control! You hit the nail on the head. And this is the time of year that all of us seem to be wanting to try and eat healthy and lose a few pounds. My husband and I …gasp…have actually been talking about joining a gym! So for our get-togethers, I’m putting out lots of fresh veggies – easy on the dip, along with a large Caesar salad to accompany our chili…but I’m going with chicken chili to lighten things up a bit.

    Have a great day.

    Love,
    Mary

    PS Love the look of the snack crackers. I’ll have to check them out at the grocery store tonight.
