Easy Finger Foods for Game Day

Touchdown Treats for the Biggest Game

As a self-proclaimed “non-sports person,” I’ve never quite understood the allure of football. The complex plays, the endless rules, the constant shouting – it’s all a bit much for me. But when it comes to the food that accompanies the big game, count me in! There’s just something about finger-licking good appetizers and snacks that makes even the most disinterested fan (like yours truly) eager to join in the festivities.

Growing up, Sundays during football season were always a lively affair in our household. My dad, a diehard Chicago Bears fan, would commandeer the basement TV, periodically erupting into cheers or curses depending on the team’s performance. As a kid, I’d sneak down during commercial breaks, snatching handfuls of whatever delectable treats he had on hand, scurrying back upstairs before the game resumed. Nowadays, while I may not have the same enthusiasm for the sport, I still very much enjoy the indulgent finger foods that have become a game day tradition.

Air Fryer Buffalo Wings

Crispy, juicy buffalo wings are a must-have for any sports-watching spread. The secret to achieving that perfect texture? McCormick’s Air Fryer Buffalo Seasoning Mix.
