While I have absolutely no idea who is playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, I have been thinking about what game day snacks I want to make, and these Blue Cheese Stuffed Meatballs are at the to of my list.
Not only are they delicious but once you get them into the crockpot, you don’t have to do a thing. After they’re done cooking you can simply turn the crockpot to ‘warm’ and leave them in there until it’s time to eat. Because really, whats worse then being stuck in the kitchen the whole time and
missing the game half-time show?
I opted for the lean ground chicken in this recipe but if you want a little more flavor and fat, be sure to buy the darker ground chicken (if you double the recipe, you can cut the difference, and go half and half).
If you want a vision for a fun Game Day Spread, here’s mine:
- Blue Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatballs
- Veggie Platter + Homemade Hummus (or make it easy and buy it at the store)
- Collard Green + Artichoke Dip
- Chips + Salsa + Guacamole
Happy game day snacking!! xo
