Football season is in full swing and that makes me a very happy gal!

For the next few months, our weekends will consist of football, fun and friends. We have a group of buddies who love football just as much as we do. We usually take turns hosting game day gatherings, each of us trying to outdo the others with our culinary creations and team spirit.

I am all about themed snacks so when it’s my turn to host, I like to serve up tasty snacks like those Steak & Cheese Football Hand Pies you see above. While they look super cute, the taste is what keeps everyone coming back for more.

Each handheld football has beef, onions, peppers and cheese stuffed into a savory pie crust. They taste amazing and come together with very little effort thanks to Gary’s QuickSteak. It only takes a few minutes to cook the filling and then all it takes is some creative knife work and you’re in business!

Footballs season has just begun so you might want to keep your freezer stocked with Gary’s QuickSteak. If you have those on hand, a tasty meal is always just minutes away! And with the BOGO sale happening this week at Publix, you can fill your freezer for less!

Gary’s QuickSteak products can be taken directly from your freezer and be ready to serve in minutes. Gary’s patented process means that all you have to do is place the frozen, pre-sliced steak (or chicken) in a pan and listen for the sizzle. When one side is cooked, flip, and watch the individual ribbons release, giving you the most versatile meat to top sandwiches, soups, salads, and more! Lastly, savor the juicy, tender taste of the meat that it took you only minutes to make.
