Game Day Snacks Ingredients

These chips are organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, gluten-free, vegan, made with 100% whole grain, and kosher. Late July Tortilla Chips are the MVP snack for your Big Game spread that everyone will love! You can’t pass up the Lime ones either.


Late July Thick & Chunky Medium Salsa

Use Big Lou’s Onion Sauce in place of sautéed onions on your next hamburger, steak, hot dog or sandwich.  It is simply a jar of already sautéed onions so any recipe that you use onions or top with cooked onions is a candidate.

Top your nachos, make French onion dip or add them to your favorite pizza.   You can even wow your guests with French Onion Soup in minutes!  We added some to our Italian Stuffed Pull-Apart Bread.  You can find the recipe at the bottom. 

Garlic and Ginger from Dorot Gardens

Game day recipes just got easier with one less ingredient to prep.  Dorot Gardens pre-portioned ginger and garlic eliminates chopping and measuring, making it effortless to season and flavor your cooking.


This is the best kitchen hack when it comes to cooking with herbs. If you ever cook with fresh garlic or Ginger, you have to peel then chop. Not anymore, just pop one or two cubes out and put them directly into your sauce or other recipes.

4C Breadcrumbs & Parmesan Cheese

From deep-fried ravioli to chicken parmesan you can use both these products for game stopper recipes.  We used the 4C Homestyle Parmesan Shredded Cheese – 100% Cheesed; No Additives, No Preservatives, No Cellulose, No Fillers: Only Cheese in our Italian Stuffed bread as a topping for a nutty topping

Who has time to make their own seasoned bread crumbs? 4C Seasoned Breadcrumbs are Freshly Toasted Breadcrumbs, blended with our secret family recipe of herbs, spices & 100% pecorino Romano cheese

New RAGÚ SimplyTM Roasted Garlic Sauce

Another great short cut when it comes to creating your best game day recipes. Grab a jar of RAGÚ SimplyTM Roasted Garlic Sauce and enjoy the rich taste of roasted garlic, plump tomatoes, and onion. Made with 100% Olive Oil, no added sugar

That is right, you can skip the homemade sauce this game day. 

We are using this sauce as the perfect dip for the Italian stuffed Bread recipe we are sharing at the bottom.   Make your favorite party foods taste even better when you use this sauce for your friends and family to enjoy during football’s big game!
