For a drink that is slightly simpler, try this 4-ingredient cocktail from Matchup Menu. With Midori Liqueur, vodka, pineapple juice, and sour, this bright drink looks like the Texas sun. Find the recipe here.

Snacks and Apps

Pigskin Pizza Pockets

Who doesn’t love pizza on game day? With these miniature football pizza pockets, you’ll score the winning touchdown with your guests. An easy recipe, and to get the football shapes, just cut out the dough/pastries and cut laces-shaped slits into the top. Recipe here.

Cheese and Football Sausage Crackers

This simple recipe doesn’t require any cooking – cut your favorite cheeses and meats into football shapes and put them on oval crackers. To get the laces, use mayo or ranch in a Ziploc bag, and then cut off just the very tip of the corner to squeeze lines onto the meat or cheese. Enjoy this recipe here.


Honey Ham Biscuit Sliders

Flaky, buttery biscuits, swiss cheese, ham, and warm honey. What could be more welcoming on gameday than combining sweet and savory with this delicious recipe? Check it out at Plain Chicken

Texans Smothered Steak
