More Football (Or Busy Night) Food

Does anything say football food more than chicken wings? I don't think so. But let's face it, those little suckers are a little labor intensive. Sure, there are short cuts; but to do them right is to do them the way God intended, and quite frankly, I don't have that kind of time. But what I do have time for is a fun little sandwich that has all the same flavors, and cooks itself in my Crock Pot.

Sliders scream armchair quarter backing! When we are screaming at the refs and leading a team down the field in a 2 minute drill, we can't be bothered with some huge sandwich! But a tiny, hands friendly one, with huge flavor...we can all get on board with that! 

Oh, and let me add, if your schedule is as hectic as ours, these also make a terrific weeknight supper too! I served them with some cut veggies/dip on the side and sweet potato fries. The meat cooked all day while I was busy doing other things and then dinner came together in almost no time!

Football food can easily be turned into every day food when we utilize our favorite kitchen assistant, the Crock Pot! And these are so tasty, even non-football fans will show up, just to eat!
