Football brings family and friends together and we love to eat and drink so we are looking forward to our family football get together this year! Every weekend it is at someone else’s house- so that way we all have a turn throwing the party and serving the best food. I know they will love my Dr Pepper® Pork Roast Sliders (recipe below) and let’s see who can top that snack this year! It takes at least a week to prepare for the fun. First, my daughter and I go shopping for the party and of course we head to Kroger to get all the GAME DAY greats like Dr Pepper®.
Shopping For Party:
We need to start stocking up on munchies, drinks, and food. My husband likes chips and fruit for munchies, but he wants some kind of sandwich for the big game day. I think I know what I’m going to serve- Dr Pepper® Pork Roast Sliders! I know that sounds yummy, huh! It’s time to head to Kroger because they have all the Game Day Greats plus the BEST deals. Plus you know they have everything we need to throw the best party on the block. We need Dr Pepper® for sure for my sliders!
Throwing a fun COLLEGE FOOTBALL party is always a lot of work but it doesn’t have to be so hard. Pick your snacks that people will love like fruit, crackers and dip, and deviled eggs. Those are my go-to snacks for all my parties. Also, pick fruits that are in season and on sale. After planning what you want to serve on Game Day then head to your neighborhood Kroger and get all your party food and drinks (Dr Pepper® of course ). You know Kroger has the best deals going on and we all love saving money.
I want to share my Dr. Pepper® Pork Sliders recipe with our readers. It is an easy recipe that is perfect for homegate or a tailgate party (the crock-pot travels by the way).
Dr Pepper® Pork Sliders
3-4 lbs. pork butt
1 can Dr Pepper®
1 cup BBQ sauce
Pinch of garlic powder,
pepper & salt
Cheese for the topping- can be shredded but we used sliced
Place pork in the slow cooker
Place all other ingredients on top of pork
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours.
Remove from slow cooker & shred pork (I use a fork)
Place pulled pork on warm rolls or buns
Top with Cheese (we use Mild Cheddar, but my BFF likes Swiss)
You can also top with a slaw of some sort
Cooking the pork in the crock pot is the only way to go on Game Day. I throw all the ingredients in there in the morning and by the time the game is about to be on- bam we got some yummy Dr Pepper® Pork Sliders. This gives me plenty of time to prep the other food plus get the house together before the guests arrive. The best part of cooking in the crock-pot is I can be cheering on my favorite College Team and not cooking all day. My motto is get it all done before the party starts so I can have FUN!
My family loves a good football game and when there is food involved too we really enjoy it. We love to spend quality time as a family and watching a game cheering on our favorites teams is what we love to do! We have a group of friends who we love to celebrate with and this time of the year we #HOMEGATE. We live in a busy city so getting to a game is hard and stressful so we love to stay home and enjoy on our big TV with surround sound! Family-Food-Friends is all we need to enjoy the College Football season in the Allen house.
Now the question is…….Are you ready for GAME DAY?
