There’s nothing quite like rooting for your home team. Whether it’s your favorite college football team, little league team, or the local high school – cheering your favorite team on to the win – or consoling each other after a loss is just part of American heritage and it builds community. At our house, we love getting together with family members who live close {4 doors down} for game day and laughing, booing, and cheering together.

Traditions and time spent together keep a family close.

But here’s my little secret – I’m more interested in the food. I love fun, food and Game Day is the perfect excuse to pull out some fun recipes to share with those I love.

Whether you are planning for a night with your husband and kids around the television, or whether you’re getting together with friends and family for a party, or you’re planning a tailgate party – the planning and the prep doesn’t have to take a lot of time.

Game Day Planning Made Easy

Keep snacks and drinks on hand that your family loves. Some easy ideas are:

  • Cheez-It® Crackers
  • Crackers with Sliced Cheese
  • popcorn
  • grapes
  • apple slices and caramel dip
  • sliced baguettes and spinach dip
  • frozen pizza
  • frozen french fries or sweet potato fries
  • potato chips and sour cream dip

By keeping a few things on hand, it’ll be easy to whip up something each week when your family is ready to get into the game. And, your family will love you for adding something fun to an otherwise ordinary Monday night.

It’s easy to host a fun Game Day with just a few simple ingredients:

  • great drinks
  • good food
  • lots of laughter
  • friendly banter

Now, for this simple, but tasty recipe. I never have leftovers when I serve this dish!
