Labor Day weekend always marks a special time of year in our household. It means the kids are back in school. It means fall is right around the corner. And most importantly, it means football season is here! Football season is a big deal in our house. It is a time of year that we cherish. We love to have people over to the to “homegate” (like tailgating, but in the comfort of your house), and if we are not hosting the party, you can be sure it is because one of our friends has invited us into their home for game day. In truth, we travel as far as Pittsburgh every year for these football homegate get togethers. They make for great memories with friends and family. Did you know that you can get what you need for game day at Walmart and

When we host, we try to make everything as simple as possible. The whole point of a homegate football party is to enjoy the company of friends, relax, and watch the game. The last thing we want to have to do is spend all day in the kitchen cooking for the party. What we typically do is head over to Walmart a day or two prior to the big event. We go there because they literally have everything you could possibly need to tailgate or throw a homegate party. Everything from the Coleman RoadTrip Propane Grill to the Oscar Mayer Selects Uncured Angus Bun-Length Beef Franks for the grill are available every day. It’s a one stop shopping experience that saves us time and money.

Walmart even makes the menu plan easy. Step one is to head over to to score some great menu ideas from Kraft Heinz. Here you will find a ton of fantastic, easy prep meal ideas that are perfect for getting you out of the kitchen on party day. We recently did just this. We headed over to the site, and we found a recipe for Slow-Cooker Chili Dogs. Talk about simple. Chop up an onion. Put the Oscar Mayer Beef Franks in the slow-cooker. Top with a can of chili. Heat it up. Open a package of Kraft 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Open a package of Arnold Potato Hot Dog Buns. Done. Total prep time was maybe 5 minutes, and that means more time to spend with our guests.

And you know what? Everyone LOVED the Chili Dogs! I actually heard my youngest mutter to herself “Best hot dog ever” as she made herself seconds (true story). You can’t beat that.

  5. Brianne

    This is a great idea! I want to do this for the weekend when we have friends over!

  14. Well I have never thought about cooking chili dogs in the crockpot! I’ll definitely be try that out!! 

  15. Our Family World

    This would be a good idea if you’re having a party and you want to keep the frankfurters and chili warm. I love how you set it up like a bar. You can just put as much cheese, onion and chili as you like. 🙂

  16. Would you believe that I never had a chili dog before?!! I really need to give it a try. Plus I do have a slow cooker that I need to use more.

  17. sara lafountain

    My teens would love this crock pot dish! Sometimes my boys are starving late at night after I go to sleep and this would fill them up for sure!

  18. Love a good chili dog not to mention, a super simple to prepare chili dog. Perfect for game day indeed!

  20. I’ve never made them in the slow cooker, but chili dogs are definitely a favorite around here. I love loading mine up with grilled onions. My son prefers his with just chili and cheese. With a side of bbq chips, of course. I actually like to crush up my chips and sprinkle them on top, lol.

  21. I truly have never heard of GrabGoWow before! I wished I did sooner!!! Also this is totally perfect timing cos hubby is about to get into some game day mode this weekend! Thank you for sharing!!! xx
