Appetizers for the Game That Can't Be Named

Back To Main


Sunday’s a pretty big day for two things: football and food. I’m not much of a sports dude, but I do know a thing or two about feeding people. While I might be the man behind the man behind the sandwich, my expertise doesn’t stop at sandwiches.

If you’re planning a party for the game that can not be named, check out some tasty recipes below, and good news, they all use yummy Jimmy John’s grub! 

Jimmy John's Appetizers


1. Jimmy John’s Day Old Bread Cheese Tray 

Feeling fancy but short on time? Grab a few cheeses to top some Jimmy John’s Day Old Bread (available at your local JJ’s until it’s gone!) and make yourself a super classy cheese tray.…well I mean, as classy as you can be while drinking beer and watching football.

2. Jimmy John’s Oven Fried Pickle Spears

If you haven’t heard, Jimmy John’s Pickles are a pretty big dill 😏 and the only way to make them better than Mother Nature did is by covering them in carbs and dipping ‘em in ranch. (It’s true.)

It’s like buffalo wings but slightly less messy and you can use bread as a spoon. Doesn’t get better than that, my friends.

5. Spinach & Artichoke Day Old Bread

People love Spinach & Artichoke dip, but no one likes double dippers (keep that in mind next time you go in for seconds.) Here’s a way to curb the problem: stack your dip right on top of some Day Old Bread, pile it with cheese and bake!
