Game Day Prep Ideas

February 01, 2019

This game day, consider quick and affordable snacks so you can spend more time with friends and family instead of in the kitchen. For easy prep, consider preparing budget and time-friendly snacks from Dollar General Easy Meals or and consider a few of our tips below.
Stick to packaged snacks
Head to your local Dollar General to find your favorite snack mixes, chips and popcorn. Consider party bowls to make snacking even easier. If you have a sweet tooth, find your favorite candy like orange slices and gummy worms with Sweet Smiles™. Save on snacks by shopping private brands like Sweet Smiles™, Good & Smart™ and Clover Valley™! Look for the brands that carry a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
Less is more
Consider recipes that require a few ingredients and take less than thirty minutes to prepare. This Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Dip only requires five ingredients and takes less than 30 minutes to make! Make preparation even easier by sticking to recipes that have simple ingredients that you may already have at home.
Make it a potluck
Invite friends and family to bring their favorite appetizers or desserts to the game day gathering to make it an inclusive and fun occasion. Consider having everyone sign up for an item beforehand so there are no duplicates. Encourage guests to include a football reference in their recipe names like “Touchdown Tater Tots” or “End Zone Enchiladas.”
Easy clean up
Look for disposable plates, utensils, napkins and cups to make clean up easy and efficient. Make sure to stock up on trash bags and cleaning supplies to expedite the clean-up. Find affordable disposable party tableware and supplies at your local Dollar General or online.
