Football Shaped Sliders


  • 1 slice white bread, crust removed
  • 1 1/2 milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 pound ground sirloin (sirloin will hold it’s shape better than other types of ground beef)
  • mayonnaise for decorating
  • mini slider buns
  • optional hamburger toppings: lettuce, tomato, cheese, ketchup, mustard, etc.


  • Set oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Break the slice of white bread into small pieces. Place in a mixing bowl. Pour milk over bread and mash with a fork until it forms a paste. Stir in salt, pepper, garlic, and ketchup. Add ground sirloin and stir, just to combine.
  • Evenly divide the meat between the twelve football shaped cavities in the silicone molds. Bake for 16 minutes until the meet just begins to brown. This will ensure the hamburgers cook evenly and hold their shape nicely.
  • During the last few minutes, brush olive oil on a non-stick skillet and set it over medium-high heat. When the burgers come out of the oven, immediately turn the mold upside down directly over the skillet, allowing the burgers to fall out onto the hot pan. Be sure not to crowd the pan. Brown the burgers on both sides cooking to the desired temperature – medium (140-145 degrees) or medium well (150-155 degrees).
  • Remove burgers from skillet. Place patties on open-faced buns and add anything you like, such as lettuce and tomato. Pipe football laces on each patty and display open-faced. Serve hot.



Caprese Skewers


  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes, rinsed and dried
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Flaky sea salt
  • 8 ounces bocconcini (small mozzarella balls)
  • Small leaves from about 1/2 a bunch of basil, rinsed and dried
  • Skewers 


  • Add the cherry tomatoes to a medium mixing bowl, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle generously with salt, and gently toss to coat.
  • Add the bocconcini to a second medium mixing bowl, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle generously with salt, and gently toss to coat.
  • Thread the tomatoes, bocconcini, and basil onto the skewers in this order: tomato, basil (fold larger leaves in half), bocconcini, tomato, basil, bocconcini. Repeat with the remaining skewers. Arrange on a platter.
  • Drizzle with a balsamic vinegar reduction.



Strawberry Lemonade Penalty Punch


  • 1 package frozen strawberries {16 oz.}, thawed
  • 1 can lemonade frozen concentrate {12 oz.}, thawed
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 liter bottle of Sprite, chilled


  • Blend thawed strawberries, sugar, and thawed lemonade concentrate in blender, until well blended.
  • Pour mixture into large punch bowl.
  • Then slowly pour in chilled 2-liter of Sprite and stir well.
  • Transfer into large punch bowl or pour into glasses and serve.





Yellow Penalty Flag Napkins


  • Yellow cloth or paper napkins 
  • One spool of thin red ribbon 
  1. Cut one 2.5 inch red ribbon for each penalty napkin. 
  2. Unfold the napkin so that it is a flat square. Grab the center of the napkin and pull up so that the corners of the napkins are flared out at the bottom like a penalty flag.
  3. Tie the red ribbon in a bow approximately two inches from the top of the napkin (opposite side of the flared corners).
  4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each napkin, then place in a basket or bowl on your serving table for your guests to grab and throw!

Wheat Grass Centerpieces


  • 8 oz of fresh wheat grass
  • Two 4 1/4″ plant pots without drainage holes
  • Super Bowl serving signs, tooth picks, & cupcake toppers (We love these!)
  • One metallic permanent marker
  1. Pour 1/2 cup of water in each plant pot then place one half of the wheat grass into each of the plant pots. Arrange as necessary so the wheat grass looks neat. Place centerpieces in the fridge until right before the big game.
  2. Write your menu items on the menu signs with metallic permanent marker and set aside.
  3. When you’re ready to begin serving, remove the wheat grass pots from the fridge, place the Super Bowl tooth picks, cupcake toppers and menu signs in the wheat grass centerpieces. Place on your table and enjoy!

Football Field Table Runner


  • Two yards green felt (make sure it’s the length and width you want for your table)
  • One spool of 1 inch wide white ribbon or masking tape
  • One sheet white feel (NOTE:  What is this?  Do you mean white felt?)
  • Tacky glue
  1. Cut green felt to size. Make sure the table runner fits the length of your table and hangs down off of the table a bit.
  2. Cut ribbon to width of the runner. Allow about 1/2-1″ overhang on each side so that you can tuck it around the edge.
  3. Glue the ribbon with tacky glue.
  4. Glue the ends around the edges to create a seamless look.
  5. Repeat the ribbon line along the green felt piece leaving about one foot of space between each ribbon (or whatever looks best for your size table runner).
  6. Cut out small yard markers with the white felt and glue in between the larger 10 yard lines.
  7. Allow table runner to dry and enjoy!
