Football. Bacon. Yeah, this post is about sports. And meat. It’s not hard to please a football fan on game day. Give us bacon, cheese, fat, salt, carbs, beer and alcohol. It’s not too difficult.

Maybe it’s just me, and I don’t know if Martha Stewart or Pinterest is to blame (maybe it’s a combination of both). But there’s too much stuff out there, giving people ideas and taking game day food to a whole ‘nother level. Take this edible stadium for example.

Football food: You’re doing it wrong.

The rules of football foods are easy. There shouldn’t be much green stuff. Or cutesy stuff. Forget Pinterest. Football fans don’t care much how their food looks. Not on game day. Just give us the meat! And the fat, the cheese, the beer… Yeah baby! You’ve got it now.

These awesome bacon recipes are suitable for game day, your next fantasy football meeting, and Super Bowl Sunday. Because I think we’re all in agreement that bacon should be plentiful on game day! Some of these are standard football food fare, and some are items that you should consider adding to your next game day spread. Like more BACON!

Go Bacon. And go Hawks!!
