Brunch snacks for the early games…
7. Mini Chicken & Waffles. This isn’t much of a recipe, more so assembly, which is why I don’t have a dedicated blog post for this app. If you’re planning an NFL game day, plan ahead and grab some nuggets from Chick-Fil-A on Saturday (they’re closed on Sunday’s), reheat them and add them on top of a mini eggo waffle. Drizzle with your favorite maple syrup and garnish with parsley. These will be gone!

12. Jalapeno Cheddar Football Cheese Ball – The MVP of your tailgate spread. A cheesy football with a little bit a heat, completed covered in bacon. The best play in my book.
