Dear Crissy

Loaded Mini Brats

I’d like to thank Heluva Good! Dips for sponsoring this post

Our loaded mini brats are the perfect bite-size appetizer for game day! You’re going to love these amazing appetizers because they are simply bursting with delicious flavor.

As much as I love sweater-weather, I don’t always want to brave the cold. Why no skip the tailgating and do a little homegating this fall?

What could be better than enjoying a game on the television with family, friends, and a few of these amazing loaded mini brats made with delicious Heluva Good! Buttermilk Ranch Dip? I mean, you guys, just look at these bad boys!

Just because you’re doing your tailgating at home doesn’t mean that you can’t pull out all the stops.

For my family, that means donning our favorite jerseys, putting on our game faces, and enjoying some crazy-good finger foods.

My secret to incredible appetizers that also taste great? Heluva Good! Dips!

Heluva Good! Dips are made with flavorful spices and are deliciously creamy. You can find them in the dairy aisle of the supermarket.

I love that Heluva Good! Dips do so much of the heavy lifting for me when I’m creating game-day recipes. They are so loaded with flavor that they offer a really quick and simple way to transform a dish into something memorable.

Speaking of memorable, my friends are still talking about my flavorful loaded mini brats! We adore the combination of sharp cheddar, onion, pickles and Heluva Good! Buttermilk Ranch. These loaded mini brats are bursting with flavor.

Heluva Good! Dips come in a variety of flavors including French Onion, Bacon Horseradish, and Buttermilk Ranch. They also have a brand new Dill Pickle flavor that is absolutely OUT OF THIS WORLD, Y’ALL!

I tend to stock up on the Buttermilk Ranch because it’s the flavor my kids love the most. I even send a little cup of this dip with my kids’ school lunches. They love it paired with crispy baby carrots and broccoli.

These dips are a crowd pleaser and are easy to serve at any party. Pair them with ridged potato chips or your favorite dippables.

Of course, I like to get creative with my Heluva Good! Dips. In addition to these scrumptious loaded mini brats, I’ve also made some other fun recipes using my favorite dips. Don’t miss my easy owl veggie plate, these fun football-inspired pizza dippers, and these amazing chicken skewers with jalapeño cheddar dip.

I hope you have the opportunity to do some homegating with your family this fall!
