We’ve had a fun football season — and it’s not over yet! Our team is headed to the Big Game, and that means we get to put on our jerseys, put out a spread of tasty snacks, cheer at the TV and do a little more dabbing!
Yep, we’re just a wee bit psyched about cheering our team onto victory.
Whether we’re throwing a big shindig with friends or just watching the game as a family, we have a few diehard game day traditions.
My son always wears his jersey. #1, baby!
Before kickoff, we try to hit the backyard for a game of catch or flag football.
That makes us good and hungry for our favorite tradition — chowing down on some good eats.
Cause you can’t watch football without snacks.
Chicken and waffles? What?
I hear that a lot when I mention this southern favorite to people who have never experienced the culinary delight of fried chicken served alongside buttery waffles. But don’t knock it until you try it.
And then I’m really going to make your head spin by pairing that quintessential football snack — buffalo chicken — with miniature waffles. And let’s throw in some blue cheese and extra hot sauce to really make things sizzle.
Don’t worry, the recipe is forthcoming. But first I need to tempt your tastebuds with a few of other other favorite game day snacks.
I can’t wait for game day!
Now, as promised, here’s that chicken and waffles recipe — appetizer style.

It gives a whole new meaning to the term “dabbing.”
