Finally Football!

The then "future Arnold's" at the MsState v. Carolina game 2011
Today is the official start of the 2013 college football season!! As a southern girl I grew up going to games and listening to sports talk(ad-nauseam) from everyone I knew. My parents were not huge sports fans but I had plenty of family that was and I quickly became a lover of all things SEC football. It truly is a way of life and it is a great time of the year to go to games, tailgate or just sit at home and watch on tv! We live smack dab in the middle of a college town and we take part in all things Mississippi State football! But if you know me AT ALL then you know I am hands down a Carolina Gamecocks girl! Today Carolina plays Yankee Carolina...we need to send those guys back up north where they belong ;)

In honor of today and the beginning of football season I wanted to share a recipe that would be an amazing addition to a tailgate party! We're actually going to enjoy it tonight as we watch the game! If you have never heard of the Captain Rodney's products then you're in for a treat! We discovered this great recipe at a Christmas party a few years ago and it has been a go to appetizer for us since! The recipe is a fantastic addition to any party you host or attend!


Captain Rodney's Cheese Bake

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • One 8 oz. package of cream cheese
  • Two cups of grated cheddar cheese
  • Two green onions(chopped)
  • Six Ritz crackers(crushed)
  • Eight slices bacon(cooked and crumbled) or 1/2 real bacon pieces
  • 1/2 cup of any Captain Rodney's glaze
Mix mayo, cream cheese, cheddar and onions in greased quiche pan(or 8x8 pan). Top with crackers and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Top with bacon and Captain Rodney's glaze. Serve with crackers.


I hope you enjoy this football season as much as I plan to! If you don't like football there will always be delicious food and cocktails!

Stay Southern,
