Yummy bite-sized appetizers are our go-to when it comes to Game Day Snacks. Today I have five easy Dipping Sauce Recipes and ideas that will complement almost every appetizer you’re serving for gameday (or any get-together!)
This post is sponsored by Farm Rich. All thoughts are my own. Visit your local grocery store to pick up Farm Rich snacks for game day!
Our family will always take advantage of any opportunity to get together with friends and gameday is a perfect reason. We have so much fun cheering on our favorite teams, having great conversations and of course, eating all of the delicious game day snacks!
And can I just say, homegating with friends (no matter which team we’re rooting for) beats out actual tailgating any day.
When we host a Homegating party, we have a few staple foods that always appear on the menu. Queso and chips, burgers and brats and of course a selection of easy finger-food sized snacks. Currently, Farm Rich is dominating the finger food competition with their huge selection of delicious and awesomely easy to prepare snacks.
Some of our current Farm Rich faves are the Mozzarella Sticks, Jalapeno Peppers, Meatballs, Fiesta Chicken Rollups, Loaded Potato Skins and I am especially loving the special edition Avocado Slices (sliced from whole Hass Avocados.)
You can find a wide variety of easy-to-prepare frozen Farm Rich Snacks in the frozen food snack section at most grocery stores. Many of the snacks even heat up in the oven at the same time and temperature. You really can’t get any easier than that!
Yum! Whats better than hot and cheesy Mozzarella Stick?
To make your prep even easier, several of the Farm Rich snacks come with their own dipping sauce, so you can include these too for even more dipping choices.
I’ve got five amazing dipping sauce recipes and ideas that come together in five minutes flat. (Not including the time it takes to wash out your blender, lol.) Multiple dipping sauce choices will put your appetizer tray over the top, I promise!
5 Easy Dip Recipes and Ideas for your next Homegating Party:
Easy Honey Mustard – (Who doesn’t love honey mustard?)
Whisk all the ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.
Quick Chipotle Aioli (Kinda’ spicy, but my personal fave.)
- 2 Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce (reserve 2 tsp of the Adobo Sauce)
- 1 cup Mayo
- 2 tsp Olive oil
- squeeze or two of lemon juice
Combine all ingredients (including the 2 teaspoons of Adobo sauce) in a blender and blend. Scrape the sides as needed and blend ’til the peppers are completely purred into the dip.
Avocado Ranch (my son’s fave)
- 3/4 cup Sour Cream
- 1/4 cup Mayo
- 1 Avocado
- 1 tbsp Ranch seasoning (plus more if needed)
- 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
- water, if needed
Combine all ingredients, except water, into blender and blend. Taste and add more ranch seasoning if needed. Add water a teaspoon at a time until sauce reaches desired thickness.
Yum Yum Sauce (lil’ missy’s fave- I think she likes the touch of sweetness in this one.)
- 1 cup Mayo
- 1 tablespoons tomato paste (or ketchup)
- 3 tsp rice wine vinegar (or water)
- 2 tsp white granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 1/2 tbsp paprika
- 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
- Optional: hot sauce, cayenne, dried red pepper flakes or sriracha if you like a bit of kick
Whisk all ingredients until combined. If you feel the sauce needs to be thinned out, you can add a few teaspoons of water (a teaspoon at a time.) Plase in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.
Perfect for Mozzarella sticks- this one takes a lot of time to make and I recommend just using a jar of pre-made Marinara.
Now it’s your turn! What’s your favorite type of dipping sauce for your game day snacks?
