Are You Ready for Some Tailgate Snacks?!

Football season is practically here! Can you hear the roar of the crowds, or smell the scent of the turf? Well, probably not this year as most of the college and professional teams are airing on the side of caution with “spectatorless” games during these uncertain times. There is one thing that is certain- watching from the comfort of your own home with some good food!

I love sitting down to a nice spread as we watch our favorite teams go head to head. Our weekends usually start off with a Bloody Mary and I have found the perfect snack to accompany our go-to beverage of choice. With the tang of the horseradish and saltiness from the Triscuits, I give this delectable snack two foam fingers up!

Some of you may not know, but I am originally from the Philadelphia area and am somewhat of a cheesesteak connoisseur of sorts. Whether we are watching Temple take on their weekly foe or chanting “E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!”, we always have a cheesesteak on our plate. Moving from state to state, it has been harder and harder to find a good cheesesteak, so I have taken it upon myself to try new recipes and make them at home. My husband loves these bite-sized cheesesteak snacks on game day. The best part is, you can customize them to your own taste! Follow the recipe below or have them “wit” or “witout”. 

Cheese Steak RITZwich

Ingredients

  • 36 RITZ Crackers, divided
  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup chopped green peppers
  • 3 slices frozen thinly sliced beef steak, torn into small pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. NABISCO EASY CHEESE Cheddar Pasteurized Cheese Snack

Instructions

  1. PLACE  18 crackers, top sides down, on large tray or platter.
  2. COOK  and stir onions and peppers in a large nonstick skillet on medium heat 1 to 2 min. or until crisp-tender.
  3. ADD  meat; cook 2 to 3 min. or until heated through, stirring frequently.
  4. PLACE  crackers in a single layer on a tray; top with meat mixture and cheese snack. Cover with remaining crackers, top sides up, to make 18 sandwiches.

Personally, I loved them without the peppers and add some American Cheese, but everyone has their own tastes. So try them out for yourself!

Whether you are watching the game from home or having a proper socially distant tailgate gathering with a few close friends, good food is always a must. Just be sure to head down to your local commissary before game day and grab all your ingredients for these delicious treats. Find savings on these products and more at www.NabiscoMilitary.com
