I wait for the play off season to come around every year. It’s my favorite time for sports. I love to watch football and I love that it’s on TV Sunday, Monday and Thursday. My wife, not so much. But I have managed to get her involved in the sport so she doth not protesteth as much anymore.
As a food blogger I also use this time to come up with some awesome game day food. It’s an excuse to enjoy and eat what I want really. It’s also great time to experiment on my friends and family new game day recipes and finds. One of the newest items I have come to love are the Tyson® Boneless Wyngz* (*contains no wing meat). I was on one of my usual shopping trips at Sam’s Club when I came across these little morsels of love and I just knew that they would be a great addition to my game day food regime. Its great because it just another thing I can cross off of my list without having to go to a million stores.
I love boneless chicken wings. That has to be my go to for game day food. But I don’t always like the time it takes to make them. With the Tyson® Boneless Wyngz* I don’t have to worry about doing anything but beating them up. They come already sauced in two different flavors Tyson® Honey BBQ Wyngz* and Tyson® Buffalo Wyngz* and they have a crispy outside with a tender juicy middle. I place them in the oven and in 20 minutes in have a delish boneless chicken wing that is hearty and wonderful tasting. I love when I bite into it that I can see lots of real chicken inside and that the sauce and crispiness is a perfect balance.
But of course what is game day food without sides and accoutrements? My favorite? Twice baked potatoes. OMG!!! So good, but oh so bad! Perfect game day side! I took these potatoes to a different level and wanted to spice things up with a Habanero cheese, and topped them off with a hot sausage. I really wanted them tom have a kick and be a wonderful compliment to the Tyson® Honey BBQ Wyngz*.
I roasted the potatoes whole in the oven at 450 DEGREES F for about an hour. You may need more or less time depending on how big your taters are. I scooped out the flesh after cutting them in half and putting it in a bowl. I place butter, salt and pepper and mashed to combine. Then I added in one cup of sour cream. After the insides were back inside the skins I topped it with more cheese and the sausage and placed in the oven for it to melt. Soooooo good!!
Get to your local Sam’s Club and pick up theseTyson® Boneless Wyngz* and make your game day preparation amazingly easy and tasty!

Wash and dry potatoes. Preheat oven to 450 degrees and coat potatoes in oil. Place the whole potatoes on a roasting pan for 45min-1 hr. or until fork tender. While potatoes are cooking sauté and completely cook sausage. Once you can handle the potatoes slice in half with a serrated knife and scoop out the insides. Place inside into a bowl with butter and salt and pepper. Mash the potatoes and add in 1/2 the cheese and all of the sour cream. Stir to combine. Divide evenly between the skins and place mixture inside the skins. Top with sautéed sausage and the rest of the cheese. Place in a 400 degree oven until the cheese is melted.
