We are huge football fans, our boys included. When we watch football games, they put on their jerseys, helmets, and grab their ball to play along with their favorite teams. They haven’t broken anything yet, we will have to put a stop to their games when they get a little bigger:) They always take a half time break to eat game day food. Good game day food is a MUST for every football game.
We always have a big spread. Some of our favorite game day snacks include: pretzel bites, nachos, pizza, guacamole, and Josh’s Roasted Garlic Bacon Blue Cheese Dip! Yes, there is BACON in this dip and it is always a hit!
This dip is loaded with flavor thanks to the:
- roasted garlic
- blue cheese
- green onion
The base is plain Greek yogurt or sour cream, both work well. We usually use Greek yogurt because we always have it in the fridge.
You need a whole head of roasted garlic for this dip. What??? Yes, a whole head, I promise I am not crazy. Roasting garlic makes it easier to digest and it isn’t as strong. The garlic gets a caramelized flavor after being roasted and brings out the best flavor. Don’t skip the roasting step. If you added a whole head of raw garlic, your guests might not attend another one of your parties..ha!
This creamy, loaded chip dip is SO good with Kettle Brand Sea Salt Potato Chips. The crunchy, salty chips really bring out the flavor in the dip. We love these chips because they only have three ingredients: potatoes, oil, and sea salt.
Open up a bag and get dipping into this Roasted Garlic Bacon Blue Cheese Dip. It is the perfect game day snack and there is a BIG game right around the corner! Make sure you are ready to party with this perfect party dip! Enjoy!
