The only thing better than enjoying a Sunday Night Football game is eating amazing food and sipping tasty drinks while you watch.

For the next installment of our TODAY Food Loves Football series, Giada De Laurentiis is joining us to make some of her favorite recipes to serve for game day.

Giada's Signature Hot Dogs

Los Angeles' iconic hot dog restaurant Pink's created a hot dog named after me. They topped it with peppers, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. This is my riff on it.

Sausage and Broccoli Pizza

I adore the simple flavors of this easy pizza. It's a crowd pleaser that both kids and adults will love.

I love making this chili for game day. You can make it ahead and reheat it so you don't miss a minute of the action.

Buttermilk and Sour Cream Cornbread

This tangy cornbread is not only great with chili but it is also delicious on its own or toasted and drizzled with honey.

Apple Cider Shandy

This cocktail is refreshing and easy to drink for the midday games when you don't want pure alcohol. The autumnal flavors make it perfect for sipping during fall football season.

If you like those football-friendly foods, you should also try these:

Sarsaparilla Short Rib Sandwiches
