TOUCHDOWN! The Big Game is almost here and I’m here to help you #PrepareToParty! Whether you are throwing a huge party to cheer on your favorite team or just watching the game with your family, you need some delicious recipes to go along with your event. Delicious doesn’t have to mean complicated though and today I wanted to share with you three yummy treats that are perfect for munching and sipping on while your cheering your team on to WIN! These three recipes use ingredients that are simple, easy to use and also each feature a different family favorite: Ritz Crackers, Digiorno Pizza or Coca-Cola!
Every year, we love gathering some of our closest friends and get together to watch the big game- it’s always so exciting to see who is going to win! I love preparing some food to go along with, but with three kids, I don’t always have hours to be in the kitchen- and then I’d probably miss some of the game too! These three dishes are so simple and yummy and can be whipped up quite easily too. After heading to my local Walmart and picking up I need, I’m ready to cook some recipes that will leave my guests asking for more!
I couldn’t resist using this Digiorno® pepperoni STUFFED CRUST pizza that I found in the freezer section. Not only was it on RollBack (score!) but I knew that the kids and adults would love it!
I was so surprised to see these new flavor of Ritz crackers. The Honey Wheat Ritz Crackers were found all the way in the cracker aisle and had such a lightly sweetened taste I KNEW would be delicious. My husband is a HUGE soda drinker so I couldn’t leave without picking up some for him and his friends too. Using these three things and some other ingredients I had on hand, I began to create my recipes!
Looking for an appetizer that is the perfect combination of sweet and salty? These PB & Banana Ritz crackers are so good, they are like mini desserts! They are the perfect sweet treat to balance all of those salty chips and heavy wings you may be serving. Only using four ingredients, they are so easy to make too! To make, spread a thin layer of peanut butter on each cracker and then lay two thin banana slices on top and then drizzle each with a little fudge ice cream sauce. YUM.
Ready for the main course? Pizza it is! The Digiorno® pepperoni STUFFED CRUST pizza is pretty perfect as it is, but by slicing it in skinny pieces and serving it with this ahhhh-mazing Bacon Ranch Dip, it takes this pizza from ordinary to extraordinary! Each of these delicious pizzas are made with real mozzarella cheese and California vine-ripened tomatoes, and you don’t have to go further than your oven to bake them! With a greek yogurt base, this scrumptious dip has a nice and tangy taste and the bacon? Well, everyone loves bacon, right?
This dip is super simple to make too. After you fry the bacon up, let it cool and then chop it into small pieces.
Combine the greek yogurt and milk together in a bowl and mix well. The milk with help to thin it slightly so it’s less like a chip dip and more like a pizza dip. Add in the ranch seasonings and bacon and give it a quick stir, and top with the chives and cheese before serving.
- 4 slices of bacon, fried and chopped
- 1 cup nonfat greek yogurt
- 2½ T milk
- 2 T ranch seasonings
- 3 T shredded cheddar (for top)
- 1 T chopped chives (for top)
- Combine the yogurt and milk in a large bowl, stir together.
- Add in the ranch seasonings and bacon pieces and combine well.
- Top with cheddar and chives before serving.
This dip is a nice change from just plain pizza and will be loved by everyone at your party, I can guarantee it!
Now it’s dessert time and everyone is craving something sweet. Why not take the familiar Coke Float and switch it up a little and make these Creamy Caramel Coke Floats instead! Skip the traditional vanilla ice cream, and use a big scoop of your favorite brand of caramel swirl ice cream, pour some ice cold classic coca-cola over it and top with some caramel crunchies that you can find in the ice cream topping aisle of your grocery store, and you’ve got a creamy, cold dessert that will remind you of your childhood.
So when you are planning for your big game party, head on over to Walmart and pick up some crunchy Ritz Crackers, Stuffed Crust Pepperoni Digiorno Pizzas and ice cold Coke and whip of some these delicious recipes to please your guests as you all root on for your favorite teams!
