Get the Man Cave ready for footy finals season

Where women now have “she-sheds” (or for us, we still love the kitchen), men have the man cave. Here at myfoodbook we completely understand the importance of having a space that is your own, where you can kick back, relax and enjoy watching your favourite sports, or whatever it is that men do in an area where they are allowed complete creative freedom.

Anyway, back to the sports, with the footy finals coming up we know this means one thing: entertaining for plenty of footy fans.

But first things first, before you can settle in you need to get the place decked out with all the essentials. If it doesn’t look like this you’re not doing it right.

Now that you’ve got some idea on how to decorate your man cave, it’s time to think about the snacks!

Footy-food is where we come in. The footy finals are the only time it’s okay to fill a plate with meat, cheese, pies, footy-franks with sauce and get away with calling it a meal. With the AFL and NRL Grand Finals just around the corner it’s time to start considering what savoury snacks you’re going to need for

We know what makes great “man-food” so we’ve compiled a collection of recipes packed with real manly, give-me-more, savoury deliciousness.


Snacks and Food Ideas for your Footy Final viewing party

These barbecue chicken wings with homemade barbecue dipping sauce are delicious and maybe a little messy! But who cares, as long as you keep the napkins handy this dipping sauce is a winner.

And for us, it’s the crème de la crème of footy finger food; sliders. This collection of footy-finals recipes includes all the best ideas for chicken sliders, beef sliders, even prawn sliders.
