From a beergarita, to a beer-infused toffee and pretzel whipped cream-topped sundae, we’ve got five creative and delicious options for your big game gathering!

Mary Giuliani’s Maco (Mac and Cheese Taco) with Guacamole

For this scrumptious treat, entertaining expert Mary Giuliani starts with homemade mini tortilla cups, made by cutting tortillas into small circles and baking in a mini muffin tin. Then, she makes a five-cheese mac and cheese, spoons it into her tortilla cups, and garnishes with guacamole. Yum!

Mary Giuliani’s Game-Day Sandwich Bar

Mary likes to set up a DIY sandwich buffet at her game day gathering. She sets out bread, meat, cheese, condiments and even a panini press! A fun and affordable way to entertain.


This festive cocktail features beer, tequila, fresh lime juice and a lime wedge served over ice. Refreshing!

Chicken Squares

Jets player Ryan Fitzpatrick’s and his wife Liza shared this delicious football-watching snack with us. They put chicken breast, veggies, chive cream cheese, cheddar cheese and chicken stock in a slow cooker and cook for eight hours on low. When that’s done, they place dollops of the mixture inside store-bought croissant dough, then wrap up in a little square and bake! How delicious!

Stephanie Izard's Football-Appropriate Sundae

Chef Stephanie Izard tops her sundae with a beer and orange peel-infused toffee, a homemade peanut butter brittle, and a pretzel whipped cream! Yum!
