Our new house has about a million TVs. We had two in our old house that came along with us – one for the kids’ playroom and one for the family room. These are dwarfed in size by the ones that are in the new house – in the gym, above the bar, in the basement rec room, and, the granddaddy of them all, the theater room with its projector and screen. Some were included when we bought the house, and when they offered to sell us the others, plus the big recliners in the theater, for next to nothing, the Hubby jumped at the deal. For the football fan that he is, our old “small” (not-so-small in my humble opinion) TVs are now unacceptable. When there’s a game on that he wants to watch, he retreats to 60-inch television in the basement.

One evening I knew he was heading down to watch a game, but I noticed it was awfully quiet. So I went downstairs and didn’t find him in front of the TV in the rec room. Puzzled, I continued walking around the corner, made my way to the theater room, and this is what I saw…

Football theater room

Yes, the man disconnected the cable box, carried it to the theater room and rigged it to the projector. Who does this kind of stuff?! But it’s actually kind of brilliant. I’m thinking since this is the granddaddy of TVs, this might just be where we’ll be watching the granddaddy of football games. And I think we might just be munching on this…

Buffalo Chicken Loaded Baked Sweet Potato Fries are just a giant pile of meaty, cheesy, spicy goodness. OK, so I lightened up what does that the potential to be a very heavy dish by making baked sweet potato fries and topping it with my Healthier Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes. But then I went for it with the cheese – Monterey Jack for to bring in the stretchy, gooey factor, but with a mild flavor so that the boldness of the blue cheese really stands out against the spicy chicken mixture. Finally a drizzle of Ranch dressing (I used my Pantry Greek Yogurt Ranch) and I think what you have here is just the epitome of gameday food. We also dolloped on some Greek Yogurt Blue Cheese Dressing, because the messier the better, right? And oh my goodness, so darn amazing. My boys and I polished off the entire skillet!

When a dish has some heat, I like to pair it with a cool, crisp, sweet white wine, like Gallo Family Riesling. If you prefer a red, I’d recommend the Pinot Noir not only to go along with this recipe, but because you’re sure to be nibbling on an assortment of appetizers. These two wines are versatile and balanced, making them perfect for gameday snacking. They’ll pair perfectly with all of the dips and spreads and sliders and snacks on your “Supper Bowl” buffet!

  1. Your husband and my husband sound a lot alike. Mine has been known to unhook the basement TV and move it up to the living room so he can watch two sports at once, on really big sports days. Meanwhile, I’m in the kitchen. Next time this is going on, I’ll remember this recipe. Love the combination of sweet from the potatoes, and spicy!

  2. I love baking my sweet potato fries and you’ve totally turned a “bad for you food” into something not as bad. Is it horrible that I want this for dinner?

  3. There are few things I love to indulge in more than sweet potato fries. Even more so if they are smothered in cheese. This looks so good! I’d have no problem digging through the chicken to get to all those fries! 😉

  4. I love everything about this dish! I also think it’s cute you snapped a photo of the husband in the theater room…if we had such a tv and room, I know my husband would do the same thing, hahaha!
