Game Day Grub: 10 Winning Recipes For Football Season (1)

Don't make a food fumble with boring game day grub! This season, ditch the pretzels and potato chips and upgrade your kickoff cuisine. From ham and cheese tailgate sliders to chili to chocolate chip pecan blondies, all of these game day recipes are guaranteed to score.

These Southern-style ham and cheese sliders are doused in a tangy butter, mustard and poppy seed sauce. They're perfect for football parties because they feed a crowd and can be made ahead -- but mostly because boys love them. GET THE RECIPE

My husband calls these sweet, spicy, salty candied pecans "crack nuts" because they're madly addictive. The best part? You only need four simple ingredients to make them -- and if you start right now, you'll be done in 15 minutes. GET THE RECIPE

Classic Buffalo wings are fried but I love the flavor and ease of cooking them on the grill -- they are truly no fuss, no muss and finger lickin' good! The seasoned Buffalo sauce takes them over the top; it's made with garlic and spices, which makes it more flavorful than your typical hot sauce. GET THE RECIPE

Who can resist chocolate and peanut butter? A crumbly chocolate wafer crust, rich and creamy peanut butter layer, and smooth-as-silk milk chocolate topping make these squares absolutely irresistible. GET THE RECIPE

While traditional guacamole is made with raw onions, this updated version is made with roasted garlic, which has just as much flavor and none of unpleasant aftertaste. Always a crowd-pleaser! GET THE RECIPE

You gotta have something sweet when watching football, and these easy-to-make chocolate chip blondies are always a crowd-pleaser. GET THE RECIPE

Peel n' Eat Shrimp are as easy to make as they are fun to eat. Here, they're prepared Maryland-style: simmered in beer and Old Bay with homemade co*cktail sauce on the side. GET THE RECIPE

This homemade queso is rich, creamy, spicy -- and dangerously addictive served warm with tortilla chips. GET THE RECIPE

This tasty popcorn tossed with garlic butter, Parmesan, oregano and red pepper flakes is adapted from Crazy Good Italian by D.C. Chef and Top Chef All-Stars runner-up Mike Isabella. It's insanely addictive (yes, crazy good) and exemplifies Isabella's self-described cooking style: one part old-world Italian, one part old-school Jersey, one part modern Mediterranean -- all parts delicious. GET THE RECIPE

With meltingly tender chunks of beef enveloped in a spicy, smoky sauce, Texas beef chili (or Chili con Carne) is essentially a chili-flavored beef stew. Try it, and you may never go back to that ground beef and bean chili again. GET THE RECIPE
