It’s game season! Usually this would mean planning the perfect tailgating event, but I’m much more interested in ‘homegating’! Basically, it’s all the fun of tailgating, but you can do it from the comfort of your own living room–sounds like the best of both worlds to me! I’m sharing my homegating must-haves for game day!
‘Homegating’ Must-Haves for Game Day
Sabra Classic Hummus + Sabra Spicy Hummus– I’ve always been a huge fan of Sabra, so it’s a no-brainer that I have to have both their Classic Hummus and Spicy Hummus out for game day! Sabra Hummus is a versatile, creamy dip made of simple ingredients like chickpeas, garlic, and tahini. Their spicy variety offers even more flavor for those who want that extra kick! I like to serve it with pita chips and delicious veggies for an easy, snackable dipping experience. Sabra Hummus is also perfect for a variety of diets including vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, kosher, and non-GMO.
Roland Foods– Great for both home cooks and chefs alike, Roland Foods has been in business for over 85 years, importing specialty ingredients from all over the world. I’ve always loved Roland Foods, and they’ve recently done a rebrand with new packaging that is fun, colorful, and sophisticated!
–Roland® Fig Jam– This is some of the most delicious fig jam ever. It only has five ingredients and is 65% figs with a nice bit of crunch from the seeds. Sweetened with acacia honey, this jam does not contain any high fructose corn syrup! For homegating, you can easily serve it alongside cheese and crackers for my own little charcuterie board. I decided to level up and make a bistro pizza with fig jam spread, melted brie, arugula, crispy prosciutto, and balsamic caramelized onions. My mouth is watering now.
–Roland® Black Organic Truffle Oil- Our Black Organic Truffle Oil– This truffle oil smells like heaven! It’s made with extra virgin olive oil, includes pieces of organic black summer truffles, and is infused with a hypnotizing truffle aroma. This tastes amazing drizzled over pasta, soup, risotto, and roasted vegetables. I drizzled a little over some cheddar to make my charcuterie board a little more special. Use it to elevate your favorite dish to share with friends and family!
Act II Hot and Spicy Popcorn– We love microwave popcorn in this house, and Act II is bringing the heat for game day with its new Hot & Spicy variety, so you know I had to try it asap! It’s made of 100% whole grain popcorn kernels that actually pop red to add a bold splash of color to the snack table. You know that I love my spice, so this new flavor is right up my alley.
Banquet Country Fried Chicken MEGA Meal– Banquet offers a delicious collection of frozen meals that are sure to please everyone at your next homegating event! I chose the Banquet Country Fried Chicken MEGA Meal for an easy dish that is ready in the microwave in minutes! It contains white meat chicken patties topped with Southern gravy with a side of bacon mac and cheese. With 30 grams of protein, everyone’s chicken cravings are sure to be satisfied!
