|The then “future Arnold’s” at the MsState v. Carolina game 2011|
Today is the official start of the 2013 college football season!! As a southern girl I grew up going to games and listening to sports talk(ad-nauseam) from everyone I knew. My parents were not huge sports fans but I had plenty of family that was and I quickly became a lover of all things SEC football. It truly is a way of life and it is a great time of the year to go to games, tailgate or just sit at home and watch on tv! We live smack dab in the middle of a college town and we take part in all things Mississippi State football! But if you know me AT ALL then you know I am hands down a Carolina Gamecocks girl! Today Carolina plays Yankee Carolina…we need to send those guys back up north where they belong 😉
In honor of today and the beginning of football season I wanted to share a recipe that would be an amazing addition to a tailgate party! We’re actually going to enjoy it tonight as we watch the game! If you have never heard of the Captain Rodney’s products then you’re in for a treat! We discovered this great recipe at a Christmas party a few years ago and it has been a go to appetizer for us since! The recipe is a fantastic addition to any party you host or attend!
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- One 8 oz. package of cream cheese
- Two cups of grated cheddar cheese
- Two green onions(chopped)
- Six Ritz crackers(crushed)
- Eight slices bacon(cooked and crumbled) or 1/2 real bacon pieces
- 1/2 cup of any Captain Rodney’s glaze
Mix mayo, cream cheese, cheddar and onions in greased quiche pan(or 8×8 pan). Top with crackers and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Top with bacon and Captain Rodney’s glaze. Serve with crackers.
I hope you enjoy this football season as much as I plan to! If you don’t like football there will always be delicious food and cocktails!
