My dad was always a sports guy, he enjoys watching a good game and often roots for the under dog. Some of my favorite times hanging out with him are of us just relaxing and watching sports together. I remember my mom would play a special menu of tasty snacks and finger foods for big game days. Now that we live 300 miles away from each other our game time limited to visits.
While I really enjoy watching sports, both in person and on television, I have to admit that what I really love about sports is the food. Its like going to the fair, there are just certain foods that are a must. Lots of delicious snack foods is the route I like to go. So to kick off the season and get ready for upcoming game days I decided to share a tasty recipe with you.
This Bacon Cheddar Ranch Dip is gooey with warm melted cheese and tasty ranch flavor, bit size pieces of bacon and is perfect served with Cheez-It’s new Grooves or Crunch’d crackers. The White Cheddar Grooves are my favorite for sure. I just could stop myself!
- 8 oz cream cheese (softened to room temp)
- 16 oz sour cream
- 1 packet of Ranch powder dip mix
- 2 cups of shedded cheddar cheese
- 5 pieces of cooked bacon (crumbed)
- Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
- Cover and cook in preheated oven of 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until bubbling.
- Uncover and let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
There is a call out for the Most Valuable Cheese Contest, taking place from February thru April 2015. Fans can vote on their favorite flavors/varieties from six popular Cheez-It flavors and play games for a chance to win $10,000!
To get my #BigGameSnacks ready for tip off I headed to Wal-mart to stock up on goodies. Since the Cheez-It Crunch’d are a new product I wanted to show you where I found it in the store. Right there on the regular cracker aisle.
What are your favorite #BigGameSnacks to munch on during the game?
