[ad] Game Day Recipes To Try

With three boys (wait, four, if you count the husband) our home life can get pretty crazy. So, it’s only natural to hear “the men” cheering, clapping and fist-pumping on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. No, they’re not cheering for me (although they most certainly should be ’cause I’m awesome), they’re cheering or boohooing because their favorite sports team is winning, won, or losing, lost.

Hey, what can you do?

Now, we all have our favorite teams, yours truly included, and because we live in Michigan we have a lot of great reasons to cheer or cry on game day. We got two great college football teams  and believe me, the rivalry is so real you can cut it with a knife. And with games happening every weekend, whether it’s football or basketball, food will always be somewhere in the mix.

D and I like to shop for and make deliciously easy and quick game day meals. Today, we are sharing two of our favorite MVPs on our game day menu. We LOVE nachos (who doesn’t) and lately D has experimented with putting twists on the classic nacho recipe.  And look down below and witness the double cheeseburger with bacon, mushrooms, and homemade onion rings, and it was incredibly good (good on my pocketbook and the taste buds), talk about winning.

The Ball Park Flame Grilled Patties are not only easy to make, they are ready in just minutes- no fuss, no mess! They are made with premium beef, with a juicy flame-grilled taste. D will fire up the grill in sub- zero weather, but thankfully these patties don’t require him to shovel a path to his beloved charcoal grill and flip burgers.

Instead of our regular nachos, we are using Tyson® Crispy Chicken Strips®. With 100% all natural ingredients, these quick, crispy, homestyle breaded strips put the new “new” in nachos supreme.

        Chrystal you’re speaking my language because life is too short to live with regret. And denying yourself something as wonderful as these Chicken Nachos Supreme would be a dang shame.

      As much as I love nachos, I’ve never made them at home for myself. I love when they are loaded with different ingredients, but hate when they get soggy.
