The Big Game is just a few short weeks away!

Of course our Big Game party will be looking a little different this year, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t still be fun.

I stocked up on all our Big Game essentials from Kraft Heinz, Vanity Fair® and Dixie® at Walmart and am looking forward to a night in with the family, cheering on our favorite team and enjoying some tasty game day eats.

Speaking of tasty game day eats, this year I decided to turn our favorite dip into a delicious bite-sized appetizer. Enter Cheesy Spinach and Bacon Dip Bites!

Made with creamy Philadelphia® Cream Cheese, and melted Velveeta® and topped with crispy Oscar Mayer® Naturally Hardwood Smoked Bacon, these cheesy spinach dip bites are sure to be the MVP of our Big Game spread.

Oscar Mayer Bacon, Philadep

Oscar Mayer® is America’s favorite bacon for a reason. It is full of smokey flavor that can’t be beaten. We love enjoying it for breakfast, on egg salad sandwiches for lunch, and incorportaing it into apps like these spinach dip bites.

Likewise, Philadelphia® Cream Cheese sets the standard when it comes to quality. Its ultra-creamy texture and fresh flavor make it my go-to cream cheese.

Velveeta® is the choice to use in dips like this one. It melts so smoothly and perfectly every time! TOUCHDOWN!

Crescent Roll Dip Cups

Although our Big Game celebration will be smaller this year, it doesn’t mean that the flavors can’t be BIG! These dip bites are packed with flavor–cheesy, bacony goodness with a bit of heat.

The best part is that with this tasty twist on classic spinach dip, everyone gets their own dip bites — no sharing chips and dip from a large bowl.

Serve warm and enjoy while watching the game.

How to Freeze

Since there will be just a few of us watching the game together this year I will be freezing our extra dip bites for us to enjoy later.

To freeze, allow the bites to cool fully, and then place in a zip-top freezer baggie. Freeze for up to 3 months. To serve, allow the bites to thaw overnight in the fridge before reheating in the microwave.

Make Clean up a Breeze

Who wants to spend time doing dishes during the game? Not me!

Thanks to Dixie Ultra® Plates and Vanity Fair® Extra Absorbent Napkins, our Big Game cleanup will be a breeze.

With two times the thickness of the leading two-ply napkins, Vanity Fair® Extra Absorbent Napkins are ready to tackle any mess they encounter. Dixie Ultra® Plates are built strong and sturdy with a Soak Proof Shield™, making them perfect for everything from food prep to heavy, messy meals.

That means more time with the family watching the game and less at the sink washing dishes, which is a huge win in my book!
