Cob Loaf – This Cheese and Bacon Cob Loaf Dips is always a crowd pleaser. What I like most about this recipe is the dip is hot which melts the cheese! Plus it can feed a hungry crowd well by adding an extra french bread stick.
Veg sticks and dip – I don’t like to eat celery or carrots without a dip, and my kids are the same. I make a big batch up and put it in the fridge next to our cut-up vegetables. It’s also perfect for family barbecues or footy finals night!

Pizza – Homemade Pizza’s are always a hit at our house. Making a few big pizzas and slicing them up is the quickest way to feed a lot of footy friends. Make a few using a variety of different topping ideas.

Smoked Salmon Dip – Don’t be fooled into thinking that a store bought dip is quicker than a homemade one! I could make this dip in the time it takes to drive to the supermarket to buy one – plus it tastes heaps better!

Mini Beef and Vegetable Mince Pies – This recipe is very versatile. Keep it simple with just beef mince, or add a little something extra with carrot, celery, zucchini or capsicum. These pies are the perfect bite-sized snack to accompany your footy feast.
Cheese Platter – Platters are a fantastic way to feed the tribe at our backyard celebrations. Cheese is the star of the show for my platters. I start by placing the cheese on my board, then work my way around with meats, dips, fruit, nuts and choc pieces.
