Are You Ready For Some Football Food?!

Football season is taking American households by storm this year. Everyone shares in the excitement of the game, and roots for their home grown teams. Competition and suspense are what the fans crave, but it also builds an appetite! Satisfy that hunger with some great and handy football-themed recipes:

Cheesy Potato Wedges: A simple recipe to get you out of the kitchen quickly and focus on the game. Simply cut some potatoes into wedges (as many as you need for your party). Pat dry the wedges and season them with salt, pepper, and a light coating of olive oil. Spread out the wedges in a baking pan and bake for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. During the last 5 minutes of baking, cover the wedges in shredded cheddar cheese and crumbled, cooked bacon. After the wedges are out of the oven, garnish with some chopped green onion and serve! If 20 minutes is still too much time, take a shortcut and use the pre-made store bought fried in the package and go from there.

Custom Nachos: Use your favorite tortilla chips and cover them with ingredients such as cooked ground beef, refried beans, cheddar/monterrey jack/pepper jack cheeses, olives, jalapenos, onion, and more. Bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for about 5-10 minutes. Top with fresh guacamole, sour cream, lettuce and tomato after baking and serve them to your hyped and hungry guests.

Easy wings: Buy a big package of frozen wings and drumettes from your grocer, and bake them according to the package instructions. After baking, coat them in your favorite sweet, savory, or spicy sauce! Storebought sauces make it quick and easy, and the lack of breading and frying make the wings much healthier to eat! Get creative with your sauce choice, such as teriyaki, orange sauce, sweet and sour, lemon sauce, garlic sauce, and your classic spicy wing sauce. The possibilities are endless! Just remember to keep plenty of napkins handy so your football fanatics in the living room don't get sauce all over your furniture.

Another easy tip is not to overwhelm yourself with an entire buffet of food options. A few good recipes in large quantities saves your time and your sanity. Take it easy, enjoy your favorite beer with these snacks and enjoy the game!
