Get ready for the big game ... I'm sharing over 100 mouthwatering vegetarian game day recipes that you and your guest will love, everything from appetizers to entrees to desserts!
I've mentioned it here and there before, but I'm not really the biggest sports fan.
Sure, I can get into the spirit, and being from Wisconsin, I definitely bleed a little green and gold. But when it comes to game day, I'm all about the food.
As someone who is not really into sports, I sure do have a lot of vegetarian game day recipes in my archives though! I may not be the loudest fan, but I make a mean dip.
And since game day food tends to be a little meat centric, I thought it would be fun to do a big roundup of vegetarian game day recipes.
