Game Day With Alexia {Recipe: Sweet Potato Casserole Bites}

When I say “Game Day” you all know what I mean, right? It’s football time!!

Game day extends past one day at our house to pretty much any day football is on. Some days friends or family join us in front of the TV (us meaning my husband and son) other days its just us. Either way, the best part about game day for me is the food!

You know who makes game day food pretty great? Alexia foods. Remember them? I worked with Alexia last year on a recipe challenge to create a new fry flavor. I’m excited to share that I’m working with them again and will be using some of their products over the next several months to make meal time and game time easier!

(In addition to their popular varieties of fries, Alexia also has a great lineup of appetizers and artisan breads. Make sure to check out all their products on their webpage!)

Things are always a little nutty around our house and because of that,  I am a huge fan of products that can make my life a little easier. For our most recent game day watching, I used Alexia Sweet Potato bites to re-invent sweet potato casserole, in a bite sized form. Super simple to make and a delicious appetizer to pass around during the game, Sweet Potato Casserole Bites are a fun bite sized app sure to be a hit with game day fans.

Here’s a little video and the recipe is below, so I hope you’ll check it out. Before that though, I have a great giveaway going on from Alexia that I think you’ll love.

    Just made these… oh hells yes! I would have NEVER thought marshmallows and onion would go together, but they are yummy! We are doing appetizers and desserts for Christmas dinner, but they have to have a component of traditional Christmas dinner…. perfect!!!
