It’s football season and that means tailgating time! We all know everyone loves beer and food when watching football, however pizza and wings can get tiresome after a while. So here’s a list of some of my favorite foods to make when I have guests over to watch the game.
Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip
1 pound chicken breast
1 small bottle hot sauce
1 package cream cheese (softened)
1 small ranch dressing bottle
1 bag of shredded cheese (your choice of cheese)
Boil chicken until cooked thoroughly (30 to 45 minutes). Let it cool, then shred.
In a bowl, mix the shredded chicken, 3/4 bottle of hot sauce, 3/4 bottle of ranch dressing. Then, spread cream cheese evenly in 8 x 8 baking dish. Pour the chicken mixture over the cream cheese. Sprinkle with cheese and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted.
1 large tomato
1 pack of real bacon bits or 1/2 pound of cooked bacon cut into pieces
1 cup of sour cream
1 cup of mayonnaise
Cut the tomato into small pieces. Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, and bacon in a bowl. Set overnight or for at least 4 hours.
2 packages of Hillshire Farms mini sausages
1 bottle of Heinz chili sauce
1 12-16 ounce jar of grape jelly
Mix the chili sauce and grape jelly in a crock pot. Stir in mini sausages. Cook on high heat for several hours until sausages begin to darken. Taste test sausage after 4 hours (careful, they’ll be hot). Turn off or lower heat when cooked to your liking.
