Top 10 Game Day Recipes

It’s that time again, FOOTBALL SEASON!

While I love to watch a good game, I think visiting with friends and eating some great food is my favorite part! Some of my favorite memories growing up was inviting friends and family over to watch a big game. Everyone gathered around the tv, cheering, eating yummy finger foods, and having a great time together. My husband is especially excited for football season! We are big Razorback fans, and our first game is this Saturday! He has started a countdown and is sure to remind me daily that game day is almost here!

Sweet and Spicy Buffalo Wings


4 lbs chicken wings
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 cup Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
1/2 stick of butter
1 cup AP flour
2 TBSP garlic powder
1 tsp salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees and spray metal baking sheet with cooking spray.
Coat each chicken wing in flour and place onto baking sheet. Make sure chicken is not touching. Cook for about 25-30 minutes, or until chicken is crispy and cooked thoroughly.
While chicken is cooking, start making the sauce by combining hot sauce, butter, and brown sugar into medium sauce pan. Stove should be set at low to medium heat. After butter has melted and ingredients are mixed well, add garlic powder and salt. Be sure to stir the sauce well, then remove from heat.
Once chicken has been cooked, carefully toss with sweet buffalo sauce, in a mixing bowl. Serve with ranch dressing.

Ham and Cream Cheese Pinwheels

Start by combining cream cheese, ham, cheddar, green onion, and garlic powder, into a large mixing bowl. Stir until all ingredients are mixed well.
Cover one side of tortilla with mixture, about 1/2-3/4 cup of mixture per tortilla. Spread evenly, then roll tortilla. Repeat process with all 8 tortillas.
Chill rolled tortillas in fridge for about 30 minutes- it’s easier to cut when chilled. Once chilled and firm, cut tortillas into 1 inch pieces, creating pinwheels.
