When it comes to celebrating the big game, the first thing most people think of is the football, of course, but a very close second is…. THE FOOD! And I’m guessing that order may even be in reverse for a few hungry souls. ;) That’s why I’m excited to be teaming up with the Coca-Cola & NABISCO Home Bowl this year to bring you some tasty recipe ideas for your game day menu!
Bring on the BACON (appetizers!)
Bacon is always a crowd-pleaser in our circle, so we’ve utilized it quite a bit for various parties, including marinating it in Coca-Cola for a super tasty & slightly-caramelized twist!
And even though this Coke-Soaked Bacon is great on its own, Sonny & I thought it would be fun to incorporate it into a couple of our favorite bacon-y appetizers for game day this year. It added the perfect, subtle kick of sweetness to a Bacon Ranch Cheddar Football Cheese Ball and Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Tenders…
The results were super delicious! Both my parents and my little ones gobbled both of these dishes up, and when loved ones of all ages like the same thing, you know what that means…. SCORE! ;)
