8 Great Game Day Appetizers

Want to crush the big game snacks this year? We’ve got your game plan right here. 

No matter who’s playing, a great Game Day gathering is all about friends, fun, and food! With a little advance planning—and a little help from Kikkoman—you can create a spread of apps and snacks that’ll keep the party going all afternoon.  

Here are eight game-changing ways to make this year’s watch party the tastiest ever.

Crab ‘n’ Go!

These Crab and Cream Cheese Jalapeño Poppers are easy because they’re baked, not fried. Panko gives them their craveable crunch, and a splash of soy sauce in the filling takes the umami factor to another level. 


Oh Baba!

Tired of hummus? Check out our Baba Ganoush with Pita Chips! This Mediterranean roasted eggplant spread is fast and flavorful, and once you taste fresh, homemade pita chips, you’ll never go back to the ones in the bag. 


Super Sushi Hack

These Salmon Sushi Pinwheel Sandwiches made with spinach tortillas are a fail-proof way to satisfy sushi cravings. Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce makes the perfect dipping sauce to serve on the side.


Sweet Heat Salsa

Our Teriyaki Grilled Pineapple Salsa’s got it all going on—the caramelized flavor of grilled pineapple, the smoky heat of charred jalapeños, and the sweet-savory umami of our Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce. Perfect with chips, tacos, sliders, and just about everything else on your spread.


Small Bites, Big Flavor

Nothing says Game Day like a platter of sliders. Our Gluten-Free Hoisin Meatball Sliders may be small, but they get their big flavor from Kikkoman® Gluten-Free Hoisin Sauce, scallions, ginger and garlic. They’re great with our Teriyaki Grilled Pineapple Salsa.


Wings for the Win!

Oven baked and tossed in a spicy habanero-seasoned Teriyaki Takumi glaze, these Sweet & Super Spicy Chicken Wings are the perfect game day snack—saucy and sticky with a fiery hot kick.


Kick it up a Nacho

Here’s a whole new way to Nacho. These easy Teriyaki Chicken Nachos are piled high with slices of succulent teriyaki chicken, sweet peppers, onion, and cilantro.


Skins in the Game

Looking for a tasty twist on potato skins? We’ve got three! Our Potato Skins 3 Ways recipe shows you how to stuff your spuds with three Asian-inspired chicken fillings: Thai Peanut, Cheesy Sriracha, and Teriyaki.
