Football season is underway and if you are looking for ways to feed your hungry fans, then HungryForFootball.com could help you out.

HungryForFootball.com gives fans access to everything they need to transform game day get-togethers from ordinary into legendary with delicious, easy to make recipes!

I recently fed my football fanatics Saucy Meatballs and Popcorn Munch. Both were recipes I found at HungryForFootball.com and were so easy to make.

Sweet and Savory Saucy Meatballs

The Sweet and Savory Saucy Meatballs only take three ingredients to make including Hunt’s Mandwich Bold Sloppy Joe Sauce. Plus, all you do is basically toss the ingredients in the slow cooker and let it go. They were easy and tasty. The recipe is intended to be served as an appetizer but they could also easily be served as a sandwich. Just place them in a sub roll with cheese!

Peanut Butter Popcorn Munch

The Peanut Butter Popcorn Munch was a big hit and is our new favorite snack.  This all begins with Orville Redenbacher’s Gourmet Butter microwave popcorn. You add in some pretzels and coat the popcorn/pretzel combo with peanut butter melted with a little Parkay. Once that’s coated you give it a coating of powdered sugar. You end up with a munchy snack mix that resembles “puppy chow”. So tasty and a sinch to put together. We will be making this to munch on for many more football games to come. 

With more than 50 amazing recipes just like these, #HungryForFootball makes it easy to feed your football frenzy with a crowd-pleasing menu that will keep your fans coming back for more.

Whether you get pumped up for the big game at HOME in front of the TV (the way my family does), or while tailigating at the stadium, everyone is #HungryForFootball and the delicious food that the football season has to offer. You will love these saucy meatballs and popcorn munch.
