If there was one thing that I really do love, it’s a good gameday snack spread. Anyone else!? I grew up going to tailgates for football games and I truly think the limit does not exist for how many snacks can be had during gameday. I will also say, I’m generally more focused on that then the actual game. Oops! Anyways, I thought I would put together a gameday snacks roundup of recipes that you can find on One Balanced Life. With these 17 Easy Gameday Snacks, you’re sure to find something you love.

  • Buffalo Cauliflower: One of my favorite snacks that will get any cauliflower skeptic into this delicious snack! Make these and serve with a little ranch sauce too!
  • Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Sweet Peppers: These make for a delicious bite and are easily made in the air fryer!
  • Buffalo Chicken Naan Flatbread: This buffalo chicken naan is so simple to make and combines all my favorite things: naan, ranch and buffalo chicken. Toss some chicken in the crockpot with buffalo sauce to make this and a few others for gameday.

  • Sweet & Sour Cauliflower: Since every gameday spread needs a little something sweet, this sweet and sour cauliflower is the perfect thing to make. It satisfies both while being so easy and delicious.
