These Grazing Table Ideas for Game Days showcase how you can effortlessly combine different snacking options to satisfy all your guests. Perfect for football games, parties, and movie nights.
Soon, we will be entering one of our family’s favorite seasons- fall! We love the cool, crisp fall weather, all things pumpkin, and the smell of comfort casseroles wafting through the house on chilly days.
We also look forward to the start of the football season because our home team is one of the best teams on the block. It is so relaxing to curl up on the couch with an oversized blanket and enjoy some good drinks, company, and food.
Because for me game days= good food days!
But there is one thing I will never do when it is a game day and that is make a huge, laborious meal. Cleaning the kitchen and a million pots and pans is last thing I want to do when the game is airing.
That is why I like to make finger foods and appetizers that can be made either ahead of time or quickly.
Lately, snack boards, trays, and grazing tables have been a better option for our family and any guests that might stop in. Snack trays are just so easy to put together and can be made with foods you have on hand, or easy to heat foods from brands like Tyson®.
There is always a bag or two of Tyson chicken products in one of our freezers because they are delicious, and the kids love them. Three of our favorite types are Tyson Fully Cooked Crispy Chicken Strips, Tyson Chicken Nuggets, and Tyson Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips.
We love how these three products have no antibiotics, ever and have all natural* ingredients. The Tyson Fully Cooked Crispy Chicken Strips, and Tyson Chicken Nuggets are even made with all-white meat which is so appreciated in this house!
I love their grilled chicken because it is easy to add to salads or eat alone. My kids love their nuggets baked crispy in the oven. I often mix things up and make them fun meals like these Chicken Nugget Tostadas.
The Tyson Fully Cooked Crispy Chicken Strips are a product we all agree on. Sometimes, I like to coat them with BBQ sauce, or toss them in buffalo sauce and serve them with blue cheese.
Grazing Table Ideas
For our Grazing Table Ideas, we decided to prepare 3 styles of Tyson Chicken and serve it with ranch and honey mustard dressings.
Having these warm chicken options on the grazing table is a great idea because they are quick to prep and offer a nice touch.
Serve them with your favorite sauce or toss them in a sauce like honey BBQ.
We used marble trays as the base of our snack trays for the grazing table. These sturdy and pretty marble surfaces added a nice touch to the aesthetic and could be moved easily.
Small football-themed toothpick, napkins, and mini plates offer guests an easy solution to choosing and neatly eating their foods.
