Cheesy Stuffed Bread and Share A Coke

On any given fall weekend, you’ll find my family huddled together in the great room watching our favorite college teams. Here in the south, football party foods are just as important as the game itself.

I almost purchased my favorite team bottles only. But to be fair to the entire family, I grabbed all of our favorites. We’re a house divided when it comes to our favorite college football teams, but we’re all Coca-Cola® fans. At least we agree on something. 

I may get the mother-in-law of the year award when my son-in-law, David, spies his name on his favorite Coca-Cola® Zero Sugar bottles.

Share A Coke and Cheesy Bread

My family is going to love the cheesy bread I’m preparing for our college football viewing party. A cheese mixture filled with chopped artichoke hearts is spooned into hollowed-out Italian bread. Then I sprinkle a little cheddar to top and bake until the cheese is bubbly and the bread is crispy. It’s so good!
