If you're anything like me, you know that the best part of any sporting event is the food. Sorry, not sorry. I've never been too big on following sports, but I am always down to host the viewing party — because that means I get to be in charge of snacks. Prepping the perfect menu that everyone will love, trying new recipes, and keeping the coffee table thoroughly stocked with goodies is my athletic calling. And the key to effortlessly entertaining a group is knowing where to cut corners without compromising quality. After all, you want to be able to enjoy time with your guests (and watch the game, if that's your thing) without getting trapped in the kitchen.
This is precisely why we've partnered with DIGIORNO Pizza to bring you the ultimate viewing party menu. Once you pull a couple of piping hot pizzas from the oven, half of your work is done. The next step is to round out your meal with shareable, crowd-pleasing drinks and snacks. (Pro tip: finger foods are key if you don't want to take your eye off the ball.) Below, I've compiled a few delicious ways to make sure nobody goes hungry after halftime.
Eggplant Parmesan Bites
Mini Fresh Fruit Cups With Mint
Seasonal Party Sangria
