Ready to Up Your Big Game Spread?

Getting ready to cheer on your team? Watch zeitgeist-defining commercials? Enjoy a spectacular halftime show? Eat tasty snacks? We are too. But this year, we’re upgrading our gathering… with really tasty snacks.

While there’s nothing wrong with the standard fare, it certainly makes the big game more exciting for your guests and their tastebuds to have finger foods with a little more flair. Plus, if your team happens to lose (which it won’t, obviously), at least these recipes will earn you a place in the appetizer championship. 

Bread Bar

The beauty of a bar set-up is the personalization factor. Whether you have a variety of pre-assembled bites or an array of toppings, this is sure to be a hit.

One idea is Calabrian Chili Tuna Crostini bar that incorporates different toppings for endless possibilities that complement the mild spice in the Calabrian Chili tuna. Some include avocado, herbed cream cheese, sliced boiled eggs, slices of radish, and chopped chives.  

For more prepared options, you can make mouthwatering Garlic & Tuscan Herb Tuna and Ricotta Bruschetta that combines herbaceous tuna with creamy ricotta for a heavenly combo.  Craving a little more salty flavor? Try the Tuna Tapenade Bruschetta with Crispy Salami

Delicious Dips

Our succulent tuna is a star player when it comes to creating a memorable dip. Much like a bread bar, there seems to be no limit when it comes to pairings you can dunk into these party pleasers.

A delectable Mediterranean favorite is the inspiration for our Calabrian Chili Tuna Hummus Platter. (Can you tell we love our Calabrian Chili Tuna?)Take hummus to another level with luscious tuna spiced with Calabrian Chili. From pita chips to fresh veggies, there are a ton of choices to add a bit of color and flavor to this tempting tray. 

Tuna Aioli Dip with Balsamic Drizzle highlights the sweetness of our tuna with syrupy balsamic. Serve it right next to the hummus so the fresh veggies and pita can jump between dips.

Tuna Romesco Salad Board
Get a taste of the Mediterranean with a board featuring a hearty, savory Spanish condiment that marries our premium tuna with almonds, roasted red peppers, charred tomatoes and sherry vinegar. Try pairing with roasted veggies and Marcona almonds for the extra yum factor.

Cheese, Please!

Did you know the creaminess of cheese is a perfect complement to scrumptious tuna? These hot dishes are all MVPs: most valuable plates.

Pizza is practically a necessity when it comes to watching sports. Our recipe for Pizza Niçoise  is exactly how it sounds—a mashup of fresh ingredients piled on top of a warm, doughy crust.  It’s nothing like delivery — just pure deliciousness.

Cheesy Tuna Arancini is warm, gooey, and oh-so-satisfying. The fresh basil, bright lemon zest, and rich, savory tuna come together to elevate the rice ball to new heights.

Silky tuna and the bright tang of goat cheese become an incredible match when baked into flaky, buttery pastry. Forewarning: these Tuna and Goat Cheese Puff Pastries are so good, you might want to prep an extra batch.
