I’m having the guys over to watch the football games on Sunday, and I’d really like to wow them with some amazing football snacks. Is there something special you prepare for your football parties at The House on the Hill?
Since I’m not exactly a first stringer in the kitchen, I’m hoping that whatever you suggest is really simple to prepare. Otherwise, I’ll have to either make extra for the Fire Department when they respond to the fire I start in my kitchen, or for the Emergency Room Staff if I give everyone food poisoning.
Can you help out a fellow football fan?
Not An All-Pro In The Kitchen
Happy Football Sunday! I am very excited for the start of the NFL season. Week 1 is the one time when hopes are still high for Jets fans. I’m sure that will all change after today’s game, though.
You are in luck. Last night, I made this awesome Buffalo Chicken Dip for the Notre Dame game. Not only was it delicious and easy to make, but it is also obviously good luck as the Irish trounced Michigan 31-0!
I advise you to try this simple recipe. Everything you need is in the photo above:
8oz package of cream cheese (softened), 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella, 1/2 cup of blue cheese dressing, 1/4 cup of hot sauce, 2 cans (12.5 oz each) of chicken breast (drained).
Stir the cream cheese until it’s soft and then add all the other ingredients. You can make it more or less spicy by altering the amount of hot sauce you use. Put it all in a deep baking dish, and then bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Serve it with chips or veggies. I prefer the nacho scoops, but that’s up to you. It’s delicious right out of the oven, and just as good cold or reheated for the second game.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. I guarantee you will be upgraded to All-Pro status after you serve this to your guests!
Enjoy the games!
I’ll have to give this one a try! The recipe I have, while it sounds delicious, requires marinating, brining, and all sorts of steps. The marinade and the wing sauce it calls for aren’t brands that my store carries so I wasn’t sure what to substitute with. Your recipe sounds much more manageable for a pre-football game throw together! Plus, if it is a good luck charm I’ll for sure want to try it out!
It was so easy. I just polished it off while I watched the Yankees retire Derek Jeter’s number…
congrats on the game, it was a rough in ann arbor last night. maybe it was your lucky buffalo dip that made all the difference. i hope that was it. )
My boys sure did spank your Wolverines. 🙂
and that’s putting it kindly –
I honestly thought Michigan was better…
I’m not a sports fan so won’t be watching the game. However, I DO hope you all enjoy your snacks. Maybe I’ll try this another time. 😀
Thanks. I think you’ll like it…
Ok now that the game’s over and your post got me in the mood for food I guess I will go bake some bread.
What kind of bread?
quick. no rise. simple. white and wheat flour with yogurt, baking soda and seeds. mix, bake, done.
The power of your leftover dip cold worked, Austin. Our Jets our undefeated. We held on to beat the Raiders. I almost lost it when Ivy started celebrated his breakaway run on the 35 and then was caught from behind. Good thing he bulled his way into the endzone regardless. Geno looked better than I expected. Well, 1-0 sure beats 0-1.
I’m very nervous about next week, though. They play The Girl Who Own My Heart’s beloved Packers. With the Jets’ secondary and Rodgers’ arm, there could be trouble!
Yes, the Packers are four stories higher than the Raiders, that’s for sure, Austin. The schedule makers gave us an easy opener.
And their fans are so beautiful… 🙂
Fan. Singular. 🙂
Hubby makes an awesome buffalo chicken dip as well, though he buys chicken breasts, chops them up, and cooks them v. the instant stuff. 🙂
It is! One of the requested favorites when we have company.
