Fall is a wonderful time of year – the leaves are changing color, the air is crisper, and most importantly – football is back. In our house, Sundays are all about church and football. After church lets out, it's home to relax and settle in for an afternoon of football.
No matter which team you're cheering for, I know everyone is cheering for the food.
I keep it simple and set up a bit of a wing bar. Everyone can help themselves and grab what works for them.
Thanks to Tyson® Any’tizers® Buffalo Style Bone-In Chicken Wings, most of the work is already done for me.
I just take them from the freezer and pop them in the oven while setting up everything else.
Because Tyson® Any’tizers® Buffalo Style Bone-In Chicken Wings are already coated with buffalo sauce, I don't have to worry about making different sauces for the wing bar.
While the hot wings are obviously the highlight of the wing bar, we have to have other snacks available that complement the wings. Celery always seems to come with wings, so I put together some little celery and carrot cups with ranch dip. By putting the dip in the bottom of the cups (I used small mason jars, but any small cup works) and then adding the celery and carrot sticks, they're an easy to grab snack. Of course, the dip in the cup is perfect for the wings, too!
I created some football-themed food tent cards that you can print out to add to your wing bar or any football-themed spread. Just click the image below to bring up the printable version.
I think it's super helpful to have the food labeled at a gathering when there's a bunch of food on a table. There may be allergy issues, but it's also helpful just so people know they're getting something they'll actually eat. For example, you could do half ranch and half blue cheese for the carrots and celery cups. I also made sure to label my salsa as mild, so people know it's not too hot.
I'd love to hear some of your favorite snacks to enjoy while cheering on your favorite team. I know I always love doing something easy and I think our wing bar fits that bill.
