When it comes to Game Day, you wanna be on the couch—not in the kitchen. MORE+ LESS-


Being college football fans ourselves (go Utes!), our fam loves to gather around and eat our hearts out while cheering for our team. Which means we need a recipe box full of fast-snack favorites for the Big Game.

With a penchant for crazy-simple cooking, we conjured a few brand-new, 5-ingredient favorites that will win every party tray. Most of them are so easy, you can roll ‘em up on the couch while screaming for a touchdown. Or grab an extra-long spoon and stoke the stovetop as you root like a maniac for the next five-and-ten. (Okay, kidding. Skip the long spooning.)

But do prepare your party table, because it’s about to get a team of treats so quick and easy, you may just take home MVP. (Most Valuable Partymaker, obvs.)

Here’s the lineup for you:


1. Chicken Waffle Bacon Sliders

You already love chicken and waffles. Now make ‘em mini style with this super awesome waffle-iron hack. Pillsbury® biscuits are cut into pieces and waffled until golden brown. Tucked together between a toothpick with boneless chicken wings, bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup, and you’ll be watching the crowd go wiiiiild!
