Clemson Game Menu

Hey everyone! Since I'm not the Thanksgiving maker (heck, I'll probably be in charge of desserts! ) I'm going to post all the things I'd like to make for Saturday. I'm gonna change it up and post the goodies that I'll be making for T-Giving tomorrow or so. My mom makes a DEEEEE-lish Turkey soup that I actually like more than the traditional T-Giving dinner, but that's ok. Saturday I was to make a big gameday menu so this is what I'm thinking:

1. Pigs in a Blanket

P's in B's are one of my all time FAVES! I absolutely love them and literally can eat about 20 at a time, I kid you not. My extended family even has served them at wedding receptions since we all like them so much. I love mine dunked in ketchup! I make them with regular refrigerated Cresent Roll dough and the "Lil' Franks" that Hillshire farms makes. I've tried making them with Boar's Head mini franks, but they're gross and don't make a good "roll" with the Cresent Roll dough.

2. Onion Dip and Spicy Nacho Doritos

It may sound gross, but I think its great! This is is a "recipe" that I stole from my aunt Megan. She serves hers with regular nacho Doritos, but I love the spicy nacho ones personally, so this is always a staple at parties. Just give it a try, I promise it's good!

3. M&M Pretzels I found a website called foodgawker.com and it has the most blogged about/most commented on/overall best online recipes and good ideas for cooking. This recipe I think looks so delish and so easy to make! I'll either make this OR a Chex Mix recipe called Muddy Buddies. That will be my sweet tooth fix!

4. Pizza Bites I mean they're even called party food on the website! I can't believe it! These are like those Totino's Pizza Rolls (which I happen to LOVE) but homemade. It doesn't get much better than pulling them apart? Am I right? Yet another recipe from foodgawker. Seriously one night, I just spent awhile adding them to a "FOOD" bookmark tab on my Safari!

5. Fried Mozzarella Balls I think this will be a little difficult, but so yummy! I've never really fried anything, so I'm not sure if I'll do this or just grab the ones from Friday's in the frozen food section. Again, I got this from foodgawker too. If you have time, check it out. There are literally 100's of chocolate chip cookie recipes as well as tons of homemade Chinese food recipes!

I'm sure this will end up being tougher than I imagine, but there are 2 fun games on that day. Carolina/Clemson and Navy/Hawaii! I can't wait to see how my teams do! What are you guys making for the Thanksgiving games? I'll do another post about my Thanksgiving desserts (Mom, I'm taking over dessert, FYI! Haha!)

What are your Gameday staples? Any snack that's specific to your family or has a cute tradition?

We keep it classy and go with queso for most gatherings. :) Your menu is great! I'm such a snacker so I love making a meal out of appetizers!

I make the M&M pretzels all the time and everyone loves them! It's really cute when you just use the M&M colors in your theme...I make red & green ones at Christmas to give to all the teachers, pink & red & white on Valentines Day, orange & blue for Gator tailgates...you get the idea. Also, I buy Snyder's Pretzel Snaps to use instead. They are square and a little easier to use.

Fried mozarella balls sounds delicious and don't even get me started on how hungry the pigs-in-a-blanket picture is making me. Yum! Happy Thanksgiving!

Ooh, I do love pigs in a blankets!! Your menu looks good! We usually do the standard fried chicken, sausage balls, chips and dip, and pigs in blankets. Have a great Thanksgiving (and tailgating)!

i made your #3 and they are SUPER easy and really delicious. I made them with all different types of hersey kisses: hugs, peanut butter kisses, regular, etc. BY FAR my fave was the peanut butter kisses on there! I think everyone should try those and the puppy chow...GREAT treats!

Happy Thanksgiving!
