Game Day Snacks from your College Station Apartments

  • August 10, 2017

Fall has almost arrived at our College Station apartments, and with fall comes football. The return of pigskin means long Saturdays spent cheering on the Aggies, and lazy Sundays spent in front of the TV watching the Cowboys, Texans or whatever other football team you happen to be a fan of.


There’s nothing like waking up at noon on Sunday and immediately turning on the TV in time to watch the music that signals the start of another long day of football. When you go to Texas A&M and cheer on a big-time SEC football program, Saturdays can be exhausting. That’s why it’s so nice to be able to spend the next day on the couch at your College Station apartment.


Now that we’ve got you thinking about those long days spent in front of your TV, let’s talk about how to make those days as enjoyable as possible. You deserve to treat yourself on Sunday, because the next day is going to be a Monday, which means you’re going to get knocked around a bit by a little thing we call life. If you have the chance, make your Sunday as comfortable as possible.


In this week’s blog post, we’ll be discussing various appetizer recipes that you can use to make your Sunday a smashing success. The recipes in this post are by no means healthy, but they’ll certainly cures what ails you on a Sunday afternoon. Fill up on cheese, fried foods and grease and let yourself be lazy this fall. We don’t think you’ll regret a single moment of it.


Check out the list below, and be sure to send this post to any friends of yours who might be interested in helping you whip up a game day snack on Saturdays and Sundays this fall.


BBQ Chicken Nachos


Here’s what you’ll need:


  • Bag of Tortilla Chips
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Rotisserie Chicken
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Sliced Scallions


This one’s easy. Just throw chunks of the rotisserie chicken in a food processor, put all the ingredients except scallops on the chips, and throw that dish in the oven. Add the scallions afterwards and enjoy!


Bacon-Wrapped Dill Potatoes


Here’s what you’ll need:


  • ½ Pound of Potatoes
  • Package of Bacon
  • Buttermilk
  • Mayo
  • Fresh Dill
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Caraway Seeds


Here’s a recipe that’s a bit more innovative, and one that might actually impress any guests you choose to have over to watch the game. It takes about 40 minutes to make, so you’ll have to wake up well before game time.


BBQ Meatball Sliders


Here’s what you’ll need:


  • Meatballs (duh)
  • Cabbage
  • Mayo
  • Scallions
  • Vinegar
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Small Dinner Rolls
  • Celery Seed


If you haven’t noticed by now, we love BBQ sauce. We put that stuff on everything. We think you’ll learn to love it too once you mix it in with these meatball sliders.


Spinach & Onion Dip


Here’s what you’ll need:


  • Olive Oil
  • Onions
  • Sour Cream
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Spinach
  • Vinegar
  • Broccoli


Last but not least, here’s a healthy option for a game day snack. We suggest dipping broccoli in this spinach and onion dip, but you can also enjoy it with carrots or celery.
