Game Day Appetizer Recipes with Mrs. T’s Pierogies

Game Day Appetizer Recipes with Mrs. T’s Pierogies | I participated in a campaign on behalf of Millennial Central Consulting for Mrs. T’s Pierogies. I received a gift card to purchase get-together supplies to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

With football season underway it’s that time of year again for some impromptu game day gatherings. Entertaining friends for these type of casual get togethers is one of my favorite things to do – as it usually means no planning, no rules and no-fuss food … as long as the beverages are cold and frosty.

Game Day Appetizers
Easy snacks and appetizers are always on my game day menu go to – especially those that do not require a lot of different ingredients to make. I recently teamed up with Mrs. T’s Pierogies and put together three pierogy recipes that can be put together effortlessly, allowing us to host a fun and spontaneous gathering – while enjoying the company of our guests.

If you are not familiar with pierogies, they are a perfect pairing of flavorful whipped potatoes gently folded into a pasta shell providing a filling and satisfying solution for your hungry game goers. They are quick to prepare and are a blank canvas that can be easily dressed to the liking of your guest with the simple addition of your favorite toppings or spices.

They are filling appetizers that can be served right from the coffee table – as they do not require any utensils to enjoy.
