Game Day Snack Ideas

Thanks to Farm Rich for sponsoring this post.  All opinions are my own. 

Fall is just around the corner and all thoughts turn to  . . . football.  I’ve enjoyed the game of football since I was a little girl.  I was a cheerleader from 1st grade through high school and I actually know the rules – well, most of them.

I have a confession to make:  I’d much rather enjoy game day from the comfort of my own home.  I don’t have to fight the traffic, the crowds at the concession stand or all the packing and unpacking of tailgating. The game can be paused at any time and I don’t miss a thing.

Since the official start of college football is September 3rd, I’ve come up with a couple of snacks to serve on game day that won’t keep me in the kitchen all day.  Plus, I wanted to get out of the rut of always serving the same snacks every single time.  I not only got out of the rut, I scored a touchdown and made the extra point when I presented these game day snack ideas to my family.

Game Day Snack Ideas

Actually, Farm Rich made the touchdown. All I have to do is follow the heating directions on the package and whip up a dipping sauce and I’m done.

On game day, I’ll be serving Farm Rich Crispy Dill Pickles with a Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce and Farm Rich Turkey Meatball Subs.

Crispy Dill Pickles

The crispy dill pickles are the best I’ve ever eaten.  When you dip a crispy pickle into the Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce, the combination is out-of-this-world good.  Everyone in my family thinks so.

Helpful Hint:  Make sure you have plenty of crispy dill pickles on hand.  Trust me, you’ll need this backup plan.

Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce

Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce


  • 1/2 C. mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. ketchup
  • 2 Tbs. sriracha
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • dash ground pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and chill until ready to serve.
  2. I always triple the recipe when I'm serving a crowd.

The Turkey Meatballs can be made in the slow cooker, but I was in a hurry, so I followed the stove-top directions.  I added a jar of my favorite marinara sauce and after they were done, served the meatballs in sub bread with grated Parmesan cheese and basil.

Turkey Meatball Subs

Turkey Meatball Subs


  • 1 package Farm Rich turkey meatballs
  • 1 jar marinara sauce (24 oz.)
  • Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Basil, optional
  • Sub bread


  1. Combine the jar of marinara sauce and the turkey meatballs and cook according to the directions on the package.
  2. Make sub sandwiches and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  3. Add basil, if desired.

All of the Farm Rich meatballs are gluten free and the turkey meatballs have 50% less fat than the traditional meatballs.  You can also serve them on toothpicks with the marinara sauce on the side.

    OMG, fried pickles are the best. I have never seen these in the store, but you can bet I will be looking for them the next time I go grocery shopping.

  2. Anything that is healthy, nutritious, filling and easy to make is on the top of my list! I will go and look for this Farm Rich brand when I do my grocery shopping on the weekend.

  3. Whoa! Can we take a step back? Farm Rich as fried pickles? I am in awe right now. I thought they only had cheesesticks!

  4. That’s a freezer full of game day food! I’ve got to stock up on this stuff. Football season is here, after all.

  5. I really like that the Farm Rich meatballs are gluten free, I definitely going to check those out. Thanks! 😀

  6. I am so ready for football season! It’s a huge deal in Alabama…and all of the south, really. I will definitely have to add the farm rich crispy pickles to my list this year! I love fried pickles!!

  7. That looks delicious! I haven’t had fried pickles before. I just bought a bottle of pickles the other day; I have to try this.

  8. I have a bag of Farm Rich meatballs in my freezer right now! I had no idea they made these pickles – will look for them, for sure!

  9. The hubs and I were just talking about where to find the best fried pickles. I didn’t even know Farm Rich makes these. I can’t wait to try them along with yummy dip….so perfect for game day. Gotta have meatballs, too. Loved your recipes & love that there is an easy clean up after the game is over. Great post!

  10. Wow! Do those pickles say 1.5 grams of fat and 190 calories? Rory LOVES dill pickles and has to eat a low-fat diet, so this would give her a fun snack to enjoy. Checking these goodies out. 🙂

  11. I could totally use this at the next game night. We love to get together and watch football or baseball and have lots of snacks! These look like just what we need for a good game night.

  12. I am with you, I’d rather watch the game from the comfort of my living room. The chairs at the game would be super uncomfortable for me since I have back problems.

    Ill have to check out the fried pickles. It is something that I like but there are only a few restaurants that serve them. I’ll have to try these since I can bake them in the oven.

  13. These recipes sound so good! I prefer to watch sporting event from my home too. So much more enjoyable!

  14. Farm Rich have our favorite meat balls! We actually just had some last night and did meatball subs with them! The kids seem to really like that, I just made pasta and had them on top of that with sauce. 🙂 We don’t really like sports, so we just enjoy when we want to. XD

  15. We love the breaded dill pickles here. I like the idea of the sriracha mayo to give it a spicy touch. Sounds like it would be w inner while watching the Green Bay Packers.

  16. Okay, the fact that I can get breaded pickles without going to a restaurant might have just changed my life! We do a ton of entertaining during football season, and save a few failed attempts at making fried pickles ourselves, it seemed impossible. This is an exciting moment as the season is getting ready to begin!

  17. So many new-to-me brands now that I recently relocated to the USA. But I DO recall we have bought some products by Farm Rich before (might be patties of meat… burgers perhaps? Lol) but I do know I am likin’em!

  18. It is days like today that I hate being gluten free!! Breaded pickles?? What?!?!? Sign me up!!

  19. Those are definitely perfect snacks for watching the game. It’s nice to have something you can easily make more of during commercials.

  20. Crispy dill pickles? That’s a thing? OMG, I so want to try those. I ADORE dill pickles. Perfect snack for watching a movie!

  21. That looks so yummy! Too bad we don’t have them here in Indonesia 😀

  22. When will I ever learn to stop surfing when I haven’t yet eaten? That Turkey Sub and those fried pickles are making me want a snack! YUM! 🙂

  23. You always come up with the best snack ideas. I am sure these are tasty as they look! I have never been to a football game but I agree with watching from the comforts of home. How neat that you were a cheerleader from first all the way up to high school!

  24. What great game day snacks and would love to try them all! I have never had crispy dill pickles, but am game to try! (pun intended lol)

  25. This all look delicious! The crispy dill pickles sounds so tasty to me, I have never had that before.

  26. I love th I still time a year! All the game day activities and excitement is the best time. I live in a house full of boys and having s aka on deck us a MUST! I didn’t know about the battered pickles. I will definitely try these in the near future. Thanks for sharing!

  27. I guess it’s time for me to finally try fried pickles! I have not had them yet!

  28. I am so excited football season is almost here!! Gooooo Razorbacks!! HA! These are some of my very favorite game day snacks, the fried pickles are the BEST!!

  29. Fried Pickles. Oh, how I love them. I had no idea you could get them frozen! And I never have time to make them anymore. This is totally happening this week. lol.

  30. I asked the hubs as soon as I saw the crispy dill pickles if he had tried it. He said, “yeah!” Well, how come I haven’t tried them yet? Looks like he forgot to introduce them to me. 🙂 I’ll grab me some once we go grocery shopping again.

  31. These look so good! My husband would enjoy snacking on them while watching cricket. He loves his sports.

  32. Fried pickles are my fave!!! I’ve never had the Farm Rich kind, but I believe you that they’d be delish with that sriracha mayo! Yum!

  33. YUM! I can’t wait for game days… best part of the year 🙂

  34. YES! We keep these meatballs stocked in the freezer and I love the pickles. I think I still have some left in the freezer…if not, I’ll have to grab another box. So sooo good, especially drowned in ranch dressing. 🙂

  35. I am a huge fan of fried pickles. I eat them as a special treat since I can’t really digest friend foods well. This might be perfect for me as I can bake them instead. YUM!

  37. Lisa Bristol says

    The Farm Rich Crispy Dill Pickles look so delicious. I will have to pick some up to try this weekend.

  38. How delicious! I love fried pickles. It’s almost hard to believe that we’re heading back to football season. This summer went by fast!

  39. CourtneyLynne says

    Omg all of these really would make perfect game day snacks! That’s my favorite part of watching games. All the food 😉

  40. These are great ideas for game day snacks. I always like to keep it light and definitely all finger foods.

  41. These are great ideas. I usually have cheese and crackers. It’s definitely boring compared to your game day snacks. Time to change things up.

  42. I love Siracha, my friend makes the best siracha deviled eggs! This looks like a very yummy dip!

  43. Consider your choices and start to save lots of some funds.

  44. The show has created excellent fascination using deals by consumers that have never
    applied deals before.
