Cheesy Bacon Ranch Bubble Bread

Cheesy bubble bread seasoned with ranch dressing, two types of cheese, and topped with crispy bacon pieces.
 
Well it's that time again........ Football Season! In my house it's all about Football for my guys, but for me it's all about the eats. I don't know why, but I have never really been much of a football fan. Even though I don't get involved in the actual game I do love all the food and fun that surrounds it.  

When it comes to football food I always try to keep it simple. I usually lean more towards simple dips and finger foods that transport easily. Let's face it folks they won't be eating in the dining room, so finger foods, dips and easy to carry items are a must. 

This Cheesy, Bacon, Ranch Bubble Bread starts with Rhodes Frozen Dinner Rolls  and the addition of crisp cooked bacon, a variety of cheeses, and a packet of ranch dressing mix. This bread is cheesy, addicting and crazy good! This bread  is definitely the perfect finger food.

Crock Pot Pulled Barbecue Chicken

We eat a lot of chicken in our house, so finding new recipes can sometimes be a challenge. I usually stick to my regular rotation meals, but that can tend to get a bit boring. I love cooking whole fryers (chickens) in the crock pot, because they're usually the cheapest in price when it comes to chicken.

Costco seems to have the best price for whole fryers at $1.09 lb. They're sold in two packs, so I usually grab a few and toss them in the freezer.  Whole fryers are perfect for chicken & dumplings, soups, stewed chicken, chicken spaghetti, baked chicken, and these yummy Pulled Barbecue Chicken Sandwiches.   

This pulled barbecue chicken is super easy to prepare. Just season the chicken and toss it in the crock pot and let it do it's magic. You really can't go wrong with tender chicken in a sweet tangy barbecue sauce. I for one love barbecue anything, so this is one of my favorite crock pot meals.
