Do you like playing games? Do you enjoy cooking? Do you like to occasionally have more than just soda pop and potato chips as snacks for game night? In this new Monday blog series, game industry personalities will be sharing some of their favorite recipes for game night munchies. Welcome to Gaming Gastronomy! This week our spicy snack comes with blessings from the Podfather himself, Stephen M. Buonocore.
I am Stephen Buonocore, the President and owner of Stronghold Games (Facebook, Twitter, Website). In this position, well, I do everything that Stronghold Games needs to have done in order to get games to market! Oh, and I would like to specially mention that I am not a game Designer! I find Designers to bring me great games, who together with a Design Team work tirelessly on their designs, as well as ensuring that the final product looks and feels as excellent as it should. Stronghold Games was formed in 2009 while I worked in the Financial Services Industry. In 2016, I made the transition to Stronghold Games full-time thanks to the support of all the amazing fans of Stronghold Games! For a more detailed bio, check out http://strongholdgames.com/about/
The number one food that works great for every Game Day that I throw is… Veggie and Onion Dip! It. Always. Works. Gamers WANT to eat healthier, so they will eat veggies and dip in massive quantities.
However, this is not exciting for you, I’m sure.
Best tasting thing that I love at Game Days:
Ada’s Buffalo Chicken dip
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 (8 oz. pkg.) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup FRANK’S RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce or FRANK’S RedHot® Buffalo Wings Sauce
1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch dressing
1/2 cup crumbled bleu cheese or your favorite shredded cheese
PREHEAT oven to 350°F.
COMBINE all ingredients and spoon into shallow 1-quart baking dish.
BAKE 20 minutes or until mixture is heated through; stir. Garnish with chopped green onions if desired. Serve with crackers and/or vegetables.
Delicious… and not so healthy… but delicious!
