NFL + MLB + NBA = OMG game day snacks!
Fall football is in full swing, MLB postseason is up for bat, and the start of the regular NBA season is just around the corner. You know what this means? Game day food! Whether you’re attending a blowout watch party or you’re enjoying the quieter company of you and your TV, you can’t discount the importance of a good snack. It’s one of the three most important ingredients (per the proverbial saying): good company, good drinks, and good FOOD. This recipe (courtesy of our vendor partner Bar-S Foods) for Cheddar-Bacon-Ranch Layered Dip hits all the top marks for good ‘ole-fashioned finger food: quick and easy to prepare, good for the budget, and bacon. It sounds so good you can almost taste the salty crunch and carbonated swig, while the crowd cheers in the background. Visit your local Brookshire Brothers to get started!
 
P.S. – October is #NationalPorkMonth, so fixing a recipe with bacon is basically equivalent to fulfilling a patriotic duty. #Motivation
