One thing I love more than anything is getting together with close friends and family in the winter. We have Game Days – it’s such a New England thing. And that’s why I’m proud to be partnering with Eckrich Deli to create a delicious game day recipe!

Do you have a big game day coming up? My Hot Ham & Cheese Dip with Homemade Rosemary Pita Chips will satisfy all of your guests! Simply delicious #Recipe AD

When you think of game day, you think of dip, right?

Right. I do, anyway! I think of smoky taste. And cheesy taste. I think of hot dip and homemade chips. The secret to the best pita chips is to make them yourself and serve them still warm! I remember we went to a party in San Francisco and wanted our pita chips to still be warm so we wrapped them in foil for when we got to the party. Then we unveiled our dip and homemade chips and the crowd went wild! For the chips and dip, anyway. I can’t say for sure about the game that night!

I have a fairly deep appreciation for a good college football time. I have certainly been to my fair share of games, because my sister was on the dance team at our college, and there’s nothing like sitting in the stands with hot chocolate and a ton of newfound team spirit. Almost as good? Watching at home with a good spread of appetizers! The thing is, I’m all about creating the perfect game-day dish using my Eckrich Ham Off the Bone Deli Meat that will please any crowd anytime!
