As you know, we are big sports fans, and while our favorite basketball team did not make it to the Big Dance, we were still excited to host our first March Madness party. I didn’t want to spend all of my time prepping, cooking, and cleaning so I shopped BJ’s Wholesale Club for all of our party needs. They offer an assortment of party trays for whatever party theme your going for, including Mexican, Italian, and American favorites.

All of the items we purchased for our March Madness party were prepared and simply needed to be cooked and served. It made prep and clean-up a breeze! Our guests enjoyed Swedish meatballs, bacon wrapped scallops, and deli spirals as they watched the game.
There was one dish I couldn’t resist making for the big game, and that was a Broccoli Bacon Cheese Ball.

Create a March Madness Appetizer Bracket Game. We decided to pit our appetizers against one another in our very own appetizer championship. Each guest tasted the apps and made their decision on their favorite. The app with the most votes per round won and our champion was the Swedish meatball.
