Football Brunch Party Ideas #1: 

Football Donuts

Kicking things off with these easy football donuts!

Use white cookie icing to make the laces on your favorite Boston cream donuts.

Tip: depending on how many donuts you plan to buy, you may want to call your donut shop in advance to make sure enough donuts are ready for pickup.

I served the donuts on this tiered tray.

This hearty, savory breakfast skillet is sure to satisfy hungry football players (and friends that don’t like sweets for brunch).

Football Cinnamon Rolls

These football cinnamon rolls are made with 2 cans of pillsbury cinnamon rolls and 1 container of vanilla frosting.


  1. First, lightly grease a lined baking tray with spray butter.
  2. Next, arrange the uncooked cinnamon rolls in a football shape.
  3. Then, bake according to the package instructions.
  4. Next, add the glaze that comes in the cinnamon rolls container.
  5. Then, transfer the frosting from its container to a zip lock bag and cut a corner off the pouch.
  6. Lastly, create the laces shape with one horizontal line and 3 intersecting lines.
