I’ve been hosting Homegating parties for years and over time, I’ve perfected the football viewing party. You won’t find me hidden away in the kitchen. I need to be where the action is, so I’ve got some great snack hacks that I always rely on.

Blue Cheese Bacon Dip and Favorite Football Party Snacks

A Homegating party wouldn’t be complete without certain foods. For instance, my guests would turn around and walk right back out the door if I didn’t have plenty of protein options.

Wings are the #1 requested food item when my friends and family gather for the big game.

Do I stay in the kitchen cooking wings all day? That would be a big NO! I have snack hacks that wow my friends and I barely lift a finger.

Blue Cheese Bacon Dip and Game Day Snacks

Let’s take a look at a few of my hacks:

Wings with Blue Cheese Bacon Dip

I head straight to the Tyson® Any’tizers in the frozen foods section at my local Kroger. These flavorful, boneless chicken wings are delicious and made with 100% white meat chicken. My favorite is the Honey BBQ flavor and they pair perfectly with my Blue Cheese Bacon Dip.

Kroger has everything I need for my Homegate party, including Wright® Brand Bacon for my Blue Cheese Bacon Dip and Ball Park® Hot Dogs for my Crescent Dogs.

Helpful Homegate Hint: The Blue Cheese Bacon Dip can be made early in the day. Right before serving, stir in the bacon and garnish with green onions. Done!

Snack Hack Alert: Another one of my party favorites is mini chicken and waffles. I serve Tyson Any’tizers Popcorn Chicken on mini waffles and add a side of syrup. I have instant chicken and waffles!

Crescent Dogs

A Homegating party is not a party without Ball Park Hot Dogs. A few minutes before my guests arrive, I wrap the Ball Park all-beef hot dogs in crescent rolls and place them in the oven at 375º for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

These are delicious when I serve them with ketchup and spicy mustard.

Blue Cheese and Bacon Dip

Finger foods are the name of the game when I’m hosting a football viewing party. Silverware is not welcome. You can’t jump up and scream if you’re having to juggle forks, knives, and spoons. So everything I serve has to be finger-food approved.

My guests are usually cheering for different teams. It makes the game much more exciting. That’s why I like to keep my tabletop decor neutral and not side with a particular team – unless it’s my team.

Since my team didn’t make it anywhere near the playoffs this year, I go neutral.

Once the game is over, cleanup is a breeze. I don’t have a sink full of dishes or a pile of leftovers and that’s the way I like it. Most importantly, I’m not tired from cooking all day. Score one for the hostess with the mostess!

3 Signs of a Great Party

You’re Well Fed

The #1 sign of a great party is there’s no food left over. I’ve had guests grab a plate and those last two boneless wings and head out the door once the party is over.

You Feel Welcomed and Comfortable

My Homegating parties are always relaxed and comfortable. You can even wear your pajama pants. I won’t tell. Favorite football jerseys are a must, especially well-worn jerseys.

You Actually Have Fun

Parties should not be stressful. If the hostess seems stressed out, the guests will feel that way. Relax, and enjoy your friends, family, food, and football. That’s what it’s all about.

We love Tyson boneless wings. They are so good and easy to make. I bet that dip just takes it over the top. I need to make it for some weekend snacking.

All the appetizers and food look so good! I can see why your guests look forward to football at your house. I love how easy these are to prepare and you are not missing the game by being in the kitchen all day. That dip though – looks yummy. I never know how to make them.

The Cowboys are playing the Green Bay Packers tomorrow (a big one for my friends and family). These would be perfect to eat during the game.

Shirley Wood January 15, 2017 - 8:21 pm

We love Homegating too and do it just about every weekend during football season. We will have to put those chicken and waffles on our list of football party foods because they look yummy! Tyson wings are one of our favorites too!
