4 Unconventional Takes on Game-Day Appetizers

Football season is upon us, and we’ve been cooking up game-day recipes left and right here at Brit HQ. We wanted to kick things up a notch, so we teamed up with LAY’S® Wavy to dream up some unconventional appetizers inspired by their Hickory BBQ, Ranch, Roasted Garlic & Sea Salt and Cheddar Potato Chips. Whip these up for your next watch party and we guarantee you’ll score a touchdown in the flavor department! ;)
