Greensboro, NC -- It's time to start planning your menu for the big game Sunday.

The folks from Whole Foods Market stopped by the Good Morning Show Monday to show football food ideas.

Jarrett Oliveri and Chef Mara Norris showed how to make Stadium Spread, Cubano Sliders, and Football Truffles. Below are the recipes provided by Whole Foods.


Stadium Spread


  • 2 Pkg. (8 oz.) Black Bean Hummus such as Roots
  • 1 Large Pkg. Pico de Galo
  • 2 Pkg. Guacamole
  • 4 oz. Sour Cream
  • 1 Pkg. Assorted Colors of Cherry Tomatoes
  • 2 Bags Tortilla Chips


  1. In medium bowl, mix together hummus and pico de gallo. Spread in an even layer into a jelly roll pan (high-sided sheet pan). Spoon guacamole intermittently on top of hummus mixture and gently spread to form an even layer.
  2. Fill a piping bag (or you can use a zip-top bag and snip the corner) with sour cream and create lines across guacamole to resemble yard lines
  3. Slice tomatoes in half, then place on either side of the 50-yard line to resemble players.
  4. Place entire pan onto large round platter, and fill sides with tortilla chips to resemble the stands. (If you want to get even more creative, you can create field goals out of sliced peppers.)



Cubano Sliders


  • 1 Package Mini Sausages
  • ½ Pound Gruyere or Swiss Cheese, shredded
  • 1 Jar Whole Grain Mustard (Such as Lusty Monk)
  • 1 Jar Spicy Dill Pickles, sliced into planks
  • 2 Pkg. Hot Dog Buns


  1. Heat large skillet to medium-high heat and spray with nonstick spray. Heat sausages until thoroughly warmed through and a little brown on the outside.
  2. Heat oven to 350º, and heat buns until slightly toasted.
  3. Spread top of bun with mustard, sprinkle cheese on bottom. Place a slice of pickle on top of the cheese, then a sausage (you should get 3-4 on each bun).
  4. Replace the top of the bun, and place 3-4 toothpicks through each part of the sandwich with a sausage. Slice into slider-sized sandwiches. Enjoy!


Football Truffles


  • 1 Bag (12 oz) Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
  • 12 oz. Goat Cheese (soft Chevre style)
  • ¼ Cup Powdered Sugar, sifted
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ tsp. Lemon Extract
  • ½ Cup Cocoa Powder (for rolling)
  • 1 Package White Icing


  1. Melt chocolate over double boiler or in microwave in 20 second intervals, stirring after each interval. Cool slightly.
  2. In food processor, mix together goat cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla and lemon extract. Pulse until combined. Add chocolate, pulse until combined (scrape bowl if necessary).
  3. Chill mixture in refrigerator until firm. Sift cocoa powder onto a plate or shallow bowl. Form football shapes with about a tablespoon each of the chocolate mixture, then roll in cocoa powder until coated.
  4. Place completed footballs onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper or wax paper, and chill until firm. Remove from refrigerator and pipe icing onto each football to resemble laces.
