Football season is upon us, and Tony Roma’s ribs are great to have on hand, whether you’re tailgating at the stadium or watching with friends in your living room. Easy and convenient, Tony Roma’s ribs are always a hit, and they’re ready in about 15 minutes. We’ve got some other suggestions too, though! Check out this collection of great game day snacks.
- For an easy but substantial snack, try this Beer Dip from Lady Behind the Curtain. Beat four 8-ounce packages of softened cream cheese with ⅔-cup of beer and two packets of Ranch Dressing mix. Stir in four cups of shredded cheddar cheese, and serve with pretzels.
- A Cheeseburger Bloody Mary may be just the thing for a morning game. Try this recipe from Taste with the Eyes: First, prepare tiny cheeseburgers by mixing ground beef with Worcestershire sauce, bread crumbs, egg, salt and pepper, form into little patties and bake at 400°, top with slices of cheddar cheese while still warm. Spread Dijon mustard onto mini buns, add arugula and burgers, then skewer the little burgers with a sweet cherry pepper on top, and 3 bread and butter pickle chips below. These skewered burgers become the garnish for a Bloody Mary made with Grey Goose vodka, V8 vegetable juice, prepared horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, celery salt, a squeeze of lime, with olive and lime garnish.
- If you’re looking to bring something to the party, these Mozzarella Stuffed Meatball Sliders from Real House Moms are a surefire crowd pleaser! In a large bowl, combine ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese, ¼ cup bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon oregano, 1 teaspoon fresh parsley, and 1 beaten egg. Mix in 1 ¼ pound of Italian seasoned ground turkey, taking care not to over-mix, and then form 30 balls with 2 tablespoons of the meat mixture in each ball. Push a one-inch cube of mozzarella into each ball, and cook with ¼ cup of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat until brown, then flip and continue to cook, turning to brown all sides. You can cool them and freeze them for later once they’re cooked, but whenever you’re ready to serve them, put them in a slow cooker with your favorite marinara sauce. To serve, slice 30 slider rolls, place a tablespoon of sauce on each, add a meatball and secure the top bun with a toothpick.
- Tony Roma’s Ribs, pulled pork and pulled chicken are always tasty, no matter how you choose to watch the game. Ready to go in about 15 minutes, they’re a great choice if you’re hosting the party and want time to spend on side dishes and drinks. Because they’re so convenient, they’re also the perfect option if you need something to bring to a gathering or heat up in the parking lot outside of the stadium.
