Gameday Sliders

Football is back! With the return of America’s sport, new gameday food must be made… That’s exactly why I whipped up these Gameday Sliders before the Patriots game last week! (Which they won, of course)

GameDay Sliders Recipe - from (otherwise known as fancy Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders!) Easy recipe for awesome football game day Sliders)

This recipe comes from a new cookbook called The Weeknight Dinner Cookbook by Mary Younkin (my Mom’s friend) and was originally titled “Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders.  It’s full of recipes that are really easy and quick to make for busy weeknight dinners.  Here are a few recipes from the book that sound good to me: Maple Dijon Glazed Pork Tenderloin, Slow Cooker Rosemary Potato Soup with Ham, Chicken Parmesan Meatloaf, Roasted Garlic Smashed Potatoes, Ranch Dressing, Chocolate-Glazed Chocolate Chip Pound Cake, and Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake.


Pile on the meats and cheeses! First up, ham and Havarti (you can use Swiss if you really want them to be Chicken Cordon Bleu style.)  There is a spoonful of honey mustard sauce under all of that meat and cheese too!


Bring on the chicken! There’s just something we all love about ham, chicken, and cheese together- a fantastic combination.


King’s Hawaiian Rolls are still the best on the planet. There’s no denying it. If anything, they’ve gotten BETTER over time!

These Gameday Sliders are a must-make for any football fan. They’re perfect to bring to parties or just feast alone and have some kick-butt leftovers! What can get better than a stack of warm meats and cheeses in a King’s Hawaiian Roll?! The correct answer is “nothing!”

Oh and I almost forgot… Go Patriots! #freebrady
