  • Breakfast can be hassle-free if you opt for frozen foods. Waffles, breakfast pastries, bagels and juices can get the day started right, with no time wasted.

  • Pizza bites are just one example of a great heat-and-eat snack option that will hold you over until dinner.

  • Whether you're entertaining guests or just keeping it low-key, whip up a spread of appetizers that will satisfy your snack cravings without missing a minute of the game. With options such as frozen pizzas, wings, dips, chicken tenders, mozzarella sticks, spicy cheese bites and hot pockets, there's something for everyone. Celebrate after the game with desserts such as pies, cakes and ice cream.

Here's a great recipe that will excite football fans everywhere:
