Attention food nerds! This weekend is wall-to-wall football and there is no better time than to prepare for the biggest game of the year.

No reason to wait another month for those mouthwatering small-plate delights. Some were a hit last year, and a few new ones could make the buffet table this year.

You have six NFL playoff games in front of you and your guests will need energy.

I wouldn't worry about the presentation. Just make sure there is enough. If your newest concoction is a hit, the best compliment from your guests will be them asking for more.

Here are a few suggestions for your party menu:
