In my household growing up, a typical Sunday dinner was something we called “snack night.” This generally meant an informal grazing situation, which served as a fun departure from our usual sit-down family dinners throughout the week. I have fond memories of filling my plate with appetizers we heated up from the freezer and plopping down in front of the TV to watch whatever football game was on. The best part about our snack night spread was that it required minimal effort and left everyone feeling full and happy, which is exactly what you want in football Sunday recipes. 

Although my adult tastes have evolved past frozen taquitos and pizza rolls with ranch, I still bring that same snack night energy to football Sundays. As a bonafide snack expert, here are the football Sunday recipes I’m whipping up for the perfect game-day pairing:
