Ah, the crowded away game. And if there’s one thing we can’t stress enough, it’s prep ahead. Show up with arms full of food that can go right in the oven for a quick warm-up (or better yet, right on the table). Trust us, nothing will have your busy host smiling faster than a few delicious dishes they don’t have to think about.
When you’re playing on someone else’s field, that makes the pregame all the more important. But a little bit of prep can go a long way, and showing up with a standout, ready-to-go dish can make you the day’s MVP.
Nothing will win the hearts of your hosts faster than showing up with dishes that are table ready. (And something that just needs a few quick minutes to warm up is basically just as good.)
A good game day spread has variety, so make sure your contribution is something with a little personality. Even if a dish requires a few final minutes in the oven or five minutes of assembly after you arrive, the taste will undoubtedly be worth it.
As a guest, don’t be afraid to bring something that needs a few minutes in the oven. It’ll help your host pace the day—and help your dish be the standout that wards off mid-party fatigue.
Even when you’re not head coach in the kitchen, it’s still a good idea to have a trick up your sleeve. This is for the moment when the snacks are thinning out and the host can’t fill the gap alone. This isn’t the time for anything showy, just something simple…and delicious.
