Getting Ready for Game Day
I like to be prepared for Game Day so that I can sit back, relax, watch the game with family, and enjoy some delicious football food! While at Walmart, I grab disposable plates, cups, and utensils so that I don’t have to spend a ton of time in the kitchen cleaning up after the Big Game. I also get ready by making sure I have enough ice to pour for drinks and enough drink options for everyone!
I also prepare by planning for quick, easy, and delicious appetizers for the Big Game. This year, I’ll be serving up chips, dips, and other easy to put together snacks. I’ll also be making loaded chili cheese fries using McCain Craft Beer Battered Thin Cut Fries for this recipe. McCain has a lot of different varieties to choose from including seasoned curly fries and extra crispy crinkle fries. You can find these delicious fries in the frozen food section of your Wal-Mart store!
Loaded Chili Cheese Fries
This appetizer is incredibly yummy and cheesy! By using thin cut fries for this recipe, it gives a nice crunch to your bite. The beer battered flavor adds a new element of flavor to a classic appetizer favorite for parties. Between the beer battered flavors, the homemade chili, and the delicious cheeses, it is an absolutely delicious appetizer to serve at your next party!
Other Game Day Appetizer Ideas
The options are endless when preparing food for Game Day. In addition to loaded chili cheese fries, meaty sliders, crockpot meatballs, loaded nachos, and other types of fries such as curly fries, would all be great additions to your Game Day spread!
