The other day I was at the store browsing through the freezer case.  We were planning for guests that would be coming over to watch football and my cart was already quite full with frozen foods.  But then I spotted Nestle Crunch Dipped Drumsticks and decided I just had to make room.

I tucked them in my cart and finished my Walmart run.  I had picked up some of our – and our guests’ – favorite foods for our get-together.  Stouffer’s lasagna, Hot Pockets, DiGiorno pizza, and Edy’s ice cream.  We would definitely have lots of yummy goodness for our party.

As much as I love to cook when I entertain, sometimes you just want to get out of the kitchen and back to the action.  These easy cook, easy serve items would allow me to spend plenty of time talking with my friends and family, as well as not missing a single play of the game.  I also had a couple of ideas to “dress up” my purchases so it didn’t feel so freezer-to-table.

Serving Stouffer's Lasagna "Football Field" with My Football Ice Cream Cake Recipe #GameTimeGoodies

I baked the Stouffer’s Party Lasagna with Meat & Sauce according the package instructions.  Before adding it to the table, though, I cut small strips of American cheese to add “yard lines” to the “field”.  Next time I can even see taking slices of mozzarella to make a blank surface, then adding the American cheese yard lines, and using an edible marker to write on the numbers.

Hot Pocket "Sandwiches" Served with My Football Ice Cream Cake Recipe #GameTimeGoodies

We love DiGiorno Rising Crust Pizza and while Pepperoni is my personal favorite, I know hubby loves the Supreme so that’s what I picked up.  I cut it into strips to make it an easy-to-eat finger food, and served it with some marinara dipping sauce.  The Hot Pockets – Pepperoni Pizza and Ham & Cheese – were cut on the diagonal and wrapped in football-print napkins, kind of like a pita pocket sandwich.

For dessert I scooped out Edy’s ice cream into the foil cupcake liners.  I popped them back into the freezer to harder, and then people could just grab a scoop and spoon to eat; wrappers toss in the trash for easy-peasy cleanup.  I also snagged Bubbles’ toy ice cream stand to display the Nestle Drumsticks.  You could just as easily punch some holes in the bottom of a shoe box (wrap it with wrapping paper) and display them that way.

To finish up, I decided to make a quick Football Ice Cream Cake with some of my leftover Edy’s Ice Cream. It’s really easy to assemble.

  • Line an 8×8 pan with plastic wrap.  Scoop the ice cream into the pan and spread, forming a smooth layer.
  • Place ice cream in the freezer and refreeze a few hours or overnight.
  • Bake a cake in round cake pans according to the box directions (I used a small round one and made the rest into cupcakes).
  • Use a sharp knife to cut a football shape from one round cake.  Set aside.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut a football shape from the ice cream layer.
  • Place ice cream on a platter; top with football-shape cake layer.
  • Frost the top of the cake with chocolate frosting; use white icing to pipe on football seams.

What are your favorite game time goodies to serve?
