If you’re super fond of watching sports on television, one thing that you’re very aware of is the fact that games tend to last a few hours. And during that time, amidst all of the excitement, you’re bound to get pretty hungry.
Although there are all kinds of eating options that you can choose from, there are actually certain kinds of foods that are considered to be traditional game-time cuisine. If you’re curious to know what some of those items are so that you can enjoy them during the next game day, here are five:
By far, one of the most popular foods to eat on game day is pizza. There are a couple of reasons why this is the case. For one thing, pizza is something that you can either make yourself or have delivered to your house at a pretty affordable price. Another awesome thing about pizza is that it’s a filling food all on its own. Therefore, all you need to do is pull out some paper plates and your favorite beverage and you will have a meal that will last you hours after the game is over.
Another fun food to eat during a game are sandwiches. A great thing about this particular option is that there are so many different kinds to choose from including club sandwiches, burgers and even grilled cheese. If you’d like to get a few ideas of sandwiches that you can make, go to Thrillist and put “best sandwiches” in the search field. Or you can go to a website like Recipes and put “sandwiches” in the search field.
Fish and Chips
If you happen to like fish a lot, another food option to consider is fish and chips. By frying some whiting or catfish and then serving it with some steak fries, tartar sauce and ketchup, you’ll have a satisfying meal—and possibly some leftovers for later. If a part of you is thinking that this particular lunch or dinner is a lot of work, all you have to do is thaw out the fish beforehand, pick up some fish fry batter at your local grocery store, and then fry the fish in a pan. You can be ready to eat in 10-15 minutes.
Chips and Dip
Say that you happen to live in New York and you decide to go to Russo’s New York Pizzeria to pick up a few game day pizza pies. However, around halftime, you want something to snack on. If that’s the case, you can never go wrong with some chips and dips. Whether it’s salsa or some queso, dips are a great way to bring flavor to any tortilla chip. For a great queso recipe, visit Food Network and put “queso recipe” in the search field.
One more option that you will enjoy are potato skins. That’s because you can fill them up with virtually anything that you’d like from cheese and sour cream to bacon and chives. This is another quick and easy way to make a meal that will keep you filled up throughout the entire game. For some potato skins recipes, visit All Recipes and put “potato skins” in the search field.
