It’s basketball tournament season again and after missing some championship play last year, there’s no doubt that this year’s playoffs will get extra attention from your students.Take advantage of this time to serve up some great menu items for students to eat while watching the games at home.
Fully Loaded Gameday Apps
Roaring fans ready to root for the home team, good friends and chips with queso are all important parts of watching any big sporting event, but since it’s hard to do all three right now, we can at least focus our attention on one of them - the nachos!
Land O Lakes® Extra Melt® Sauces and Queso Bravo® Cheese Dips are a great solution for having stadiumstyle nachos that can easily be served to-go and reheated at home by your students. These products are perfect for takeout, have standout dairy flavor and can stand up to acids, fats and alcohol – ingredients that can easily break other cheese products. If you’re looking to take it up a notch, check out our Nachos & Totchos Collection for even more great gameday appetizers!
