Grand Final Footy Feast

It's that time of year, when friends and family get together to celebrate our national sport. When opposing fans crowd around TVs all over Australia, hoping their team wins the AFL Grand Final. 

Whether your team made the final or not, Grand Final Day is a good excuse to get together with friends and have a party. At exactly 2:30pm, the game kicks off! Like any good sporting party, the pre-match festivities start early and are centred around socialising over good food (and drink).

Hosting a Grand Final footy party shouldn't be a burden, make it fun and foodie with these tasty party menus from Caternow.

BBQ menu

The good old Aussie tradition, firing up the BBQ on Grand Final Day. Though everyone love a snag and bread, there's no reason why you can't spruce things up a little and throw some little extras on the grill to get the party started. 

For your meat loving guest, you can't go past beef paddies – serve with a crunchy bun, add tomato, crispy lettuce and cheese and you've got one heck of a footy burger. Don't forget the aioli to give it that extra zing.

For your veggie friends, grill juicy portobello mushrooms and veggie patties so they too can get in on the footy burger action.

There's always room for more on the BBQ so throw on some finger food for your guests to nibble on before the main event. Here's some delicious suggestions:

  • Chicken souvlaki
  • Gourmet sausages
  • Mini rump steaks
  • Mixed satays
  • Rump steak
  • Moroccan chicken skewers
