It’s no secret my family loves baked BBQ side dishes and meals! To get ready for the big game, we’ve been testing out some delicious recipes to serve at our Annual pigskin watching party every year. These Bourbon BBQ Beef Cups are a cheesy, delicious appetizer that will be the hit at your party! And no worries, my recipe (really, its just throwing ingredients together, it is SO easy to make)- doesn’t actually contain bourbon (though I’m linking to a delicious 21+ BBQ sauce recipe from Bon Appetit if you’d like a little more kick to your sauce).
AND, a bunch of my bloggy besties and I put together an amazing “virtual party” full of delicious appetizers! These 11 recipes will make the big game extra delicious- no matter who wins! Be sure to check them all out, and head to the bottom of this post for an awesome giveaway full of goodies that will be the star of any big game party… and would be great for tailgating, too!
