The Big Game is getting closer and we’re getting excited! I’ve been getting stocked up on all the things we need to make some of our favorite game day recipes, like football deviled eggs. Plus I’ve been making sure we have all our non-food supplies that we’ll need to make game day perfect.
Traditions are a big part of nearly every sport and football is definitely no different. In fact, I think football fans might have some of the biggest game day traditions of them all. What you wear, what you eat, where you watch the game – you have a certain pattern for it all. Thanks to SheSpeaks/P&G for sponsoring this post so I can share mine with you!
Football Deviled Eggs
Football deviled eggs are so easy to make that you’re going to want to make them not just for the big game, but for any football game. Whip up your favorite deviled egg recipe (mine is below) and top with chives to look like lacing. You could also use thin black licorice strands, too, if you wanted to try a completely different flavor profile (or just pick them off when you eat them!).
- 6 eggs
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 1 tsp. vinegar
- 2 tsp. honey mustard
- pinch of salt
- pinch of pepper
- fresh chives
- Hard boil eggs and let cool.
- Slice eggs in half lengthwise.
- Remove the yolks and place in a small bowl; arrange the whites on a serving tray.
- Mash yolks with a fork until finely crumbled.
- Add the mayo, vinegar, honey mustard, and salt & pepper and mash until combined.
- Spoon or pipe filling back into the egg whites.
- Cut small pieces of fresh chives to resemble football laces and place on top of the yolk mixture, pressing lightly to adhere.
When you make your eggs, be sure to use my tips for perfect hard boiled eggs. I rarely have an egg split or break on me using that method.
Once all your appetizers are ready, it’s time to get your game face on – literally! You want to have a winning smile for when your team scores and you need to flash it at a fan from the opposite team. Crest Prohealth Advanced Toothpaste (designed to give you healthier gums and stronger teeth) with an Oral B Vitality battery-powered toothbrush are a winning combination for making your teeth sparkle.
I don’t usually have time for a ton of make up (on game day or any day, really) but I never go without mascara. I’ve been using COVERGIRL for decades and right now I’m really loving the COVERGIRL LashBlast Volume Mascara. It increases volume by 100%, and comes in regular or waterproof in case you may shed a few tears of joy or sorrow at the results of the game.
I can’t leave hubs out of the mix when it comes to getting game day ready, either. He clears the five o’clock shadow with the Gillette Fusion ProGlide. It has a precision trimmer on the back for accurate edging that he likes, plus the FlexBall Technology means a nice, close shave. You can stock up on all these products at Walmart.
After we have our grooming and beauty taken care of it’s time to lay out the spread. In addition to my Football Deviled Eggs I’ll be serving my Crispy Parmesan Potatoes, my Mini Chicken Chimichangas, and my Sweet and Sour Meatballs.
