It's FOOTBALL SEASON! Anyone else just love fall and Football Sundays? I thought it would be fun to share some easy game day snacks, these are all perfect to share and feed a crowd, or just munch on with your family. They are simple, fun and kid-friendly! When I say kid-friendly, I should add that the recipes were kid approved (my kids actually ate them...I can't be the only one that struggles with this), but also great for little sous chefs.
Pull Apart Pizza Bread
This recipe is very versatile and easy to adapt depending on your cravings, that's part of what makes it so fun! Any of your favorite pizza toppings could be added to this mix.
1 lb Fairmont Market Ground Sweet Italian Sausage (hot would also be delicious)
3/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 T chopped fresh oregano
2 T olive oil
2 t minced garlic
2 (16 oz) cans refrigerated biscuit dough
1 cup marinara sauce - warmed
Preheat oven to 325F. Brown sausage over medium heat until cooked through, drain excess fat. In a small bowl mix together cheeses, seasonings, oil and garlic. Mix in sausage. Cut biscuits in quarters and put in large zip lock bag, add the sausage and cheese mixture. Gently toss to coat evenly. Put mixture into a lightly greased nonstick Bundt pan, bake in preheated oven until top is golden brown and tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45-50 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes, then remove bread from pan. Optional to garnish with additional parmesan and basil. Serve to hungry kids and football fans with warm marinara sauce.

So this recipe has been a staple at any get together for as long as I can remember. It is simple, quick, and seriously so yummy.

Another quick trick, you can always make the home-made meatballs ahead of time and freeze them, that way on game day it will come together in just 5 minutes!
