For me, the Grey Cup is a gathering of people prepared to eat and cheer – the perfect time to try new recipes and have a little fun with garnishing.
Earlier this week I shared two crowd pleasing recipes featuring local, season ingredients on CTV Morning Live add those recipes to the football inspired recipes I shared in the past and you’ve got some awesome party food options.
If you love cabbage rolls but don’t like the thought of making the rolls – this casserole is for you. This recipe fits into a 9×13 inch pan, perfect for feeding a crowd. There’s a couple of steps involved but all of these can be done ahead of time so all you have to do is pop it in the oven once guests arrive.
Moist and delicious, your crowd is going to love this carrot cake loaded with carrots and topped with classic cream cheese icing.
Other football inspired recipes you might want to consider include:
Start with lovely hard cooked eggs that are easy to peel, follow the tips for great deviled eggs and then use green onions to decorate your eggs into bite sized footballs. Oh yeah, I know how to party!
Want pizza at your party – and who wouldn’t?! Turn them into mini football pizzas.
And finally, if you really want to go all out – make a guacamole football field. Remember to keep the guacamole tightly covered with plastic wrap until you’re ready to serve.
