Extremely tender with a sweet yet tangy homemade BBQ sauce, this oven-baked pulled pork is our go-to. Whether you sandwich it between a soft potato bun, pile it on top of a baked potato, or even eat it on its own, pulled pork is a game day MUST.

Sure, buffalo wings are great, but they're not for everyone. These roasted cauliflower bites are much lighter and are vegetarian-friendly, while still having that spicy-sweet flavor everyone will love.

From Taylor Swift: "Pitcher" To Burn

Hosting A Swiftie Bowl? You NEED These 50+ Food & Drink Recipes Inspired By Taylor Swift (9)

You can batch almost any co*cktail and it'll be great, but we're especially fond of how extra-special this rainbow sangria is. Swap in fruits to represent the Chiefs (strawberries and oranges would be great!) or stick with the rainbow (à la "reputation") . Heads up: Layering fruit in the glasses makes for the prettiest presentation, but if it seems like too much, just add it to the pitcher!

From 1989: Bad Blood (Orange Mocktail Spritzer)

This blood orange and ginger spritzer hits all the right notes: a little sweet, a little sour, and a little spiced. Finished off with a bouquet of fresh garnishes, it’s the perfect non-alcoholic drink to toast with all game day long.

I hit the (Super Bowl) Sunday matinée,
You know the greatest films of all time were lemonade. ♪

It's right there in the name—everything bagel seasoning is great on almost everything, from popcorn (pictured) to egg rolls to dip. Whether you mix up a batch (our preferred method so we can make it as extra salty as we like) or go store-bought, you really can't go wrong sprinkling it over anything and, well, everything!

From Evermore: Champagne Problems

We love a cold, refreshing margarita to cool off in the summer months, but that doesn't stop us from enjoying these classic drinks year round. For a marg that's extra worthy of toasting over a touchdown (or just a Taylor sighting 😉), add Champagne to our classic recipe for a festive, bubbly touch.

A dessert that doubles as a drinking game? Sign. Us. Up. You don't need much for this party starter: just cake mix, a can of co*ke, and some butter and sugar. We originally went with rum-and-co*ke shots in ours, but for this year's Super Bowl, you gotta go vodka-cran for our girl.

Lots and lots of carbs are the name of the game for football watching, and what better way than to serve them in the shape of a football?! We filled this adorable app with kale & artichoke dip, but feel free to swap it out for your fave instead.

Looking for an easy appetizer that doubles as a centerpiece? Give this cheesy, savory crescent ring an extra squeeze when you're assembling to shape it even more like a football, and you'll have just the thing. Need something vegetarian? We'd suggest subbing in sautéed mushrooms for the bacon.

Taylor's Fave Game Day Drink, The Vodka Cran

Hosting A Swiftie Bowl? You NEED These 50+ Food & Drink Recipes Inspired By Taylor Swift (19)

No tools necessary for the drink Taylor is often seen sipping on during football games (otherwise known as a Cape Codder). Simply pour vodka and cranberry juice into a glass and serve. If you want to go the extra mile (like we so often do) you can add a splash of lime juice and garnish with a lime wedge. We know Taylor would approve.

A true legend in the game day appetizer hall of fame, these loaded fries are the simple, classic appetizer that you can turn to again and again.

To make these, we topped a simple graham cracker crust with a creamy cheesecake layer and a sweet pink strawberry layer, then crumbled a cinnamon-spiced streusel on top. They're extra shareable (and WAY easier than making a full cheesecake).
