Game day food!!! And more peanut butter stuff!! Totally kidding. I’m not posting any more peanut butter recipes for, like, 2 days. :) But I am sharing a perfect football-watching snack. After all, my life revolves around football this time of year. Maybe ‘revolves’ is extreme, but we do move extra TVs into the living room from August-January. I soak up every minute that I can.

Now that NFL season is coming to a close, S.O. and I don’t know what to do with ourselves. Without games to watch on Mondays, Thursdays, and soon Sundays, we stare at each other like, “now what?” We get so accustomed to the regimen of “there’s a game tonight” that we are kinda lost without them to watch. Sad, but true!

Like most other red-blooded football fans, we also have the tradition of ordering food on Sundays to accompany our day of leisure. Mainly, pizza and/or wings. I don’t know why I said ‘and/or’ because we definitely order BOTH.

A few weeks ago when I was visiting family for the holidays though, my mom was using up leftovers to slap together lunch for us on a Sunday, and she rolled buffalo chicken and cheese into Pillsbury croissants, and threw them into the oven. They were *awesome.* So simple, but sooo good. I happily ate several of them while planted in front of the tv watching football. Ahhhh, perfection.

For the last 2-3 weeks, these were game day food for us. Of course, there’s nothing original about rolling stuff up in Pillsbury croissant rolls, BUT there’s a reason so many recipes of that nature exist: those croissant rolls are insanely good. Aren’t they? I love them. They’re perfect on their own with just butter, so I overlooked filling them with things, but that was obviously a big mistake. What’s great is you can basically fill them with ANYTHING, and be eating them in about 15 minutes, tops.

Apparently, my mom used to make these for us all the time when we my brother and I were kids. I didn’t recall that at all, but I’m sorry that I don’t because they are delicious!

      Lol! It’s not the most original thing, but you cannot go wrong with buffalo chicken, bacon, and flaky, butter croissants, right?? :) Thanks, girl!

    YUM! These have to be so much better for you than chicken wings, right!?!? I love the idea of wrapping all that goodness in the crescent rolls to help neutralize the hot Buffalo sauce. Super Bowl!

    Oh, I’m definitely gonna make this one. I have everything except the cream cheese, which I KNEW I should have picked up last weekend. I’ll have to grab some and make this within the next few days. Way better idea than what I was going to do with my crescent rolls.
