This football season, enjoy your favorites at home with Eckrich® and Dr Pepper® from Meijer! With a plate of these Sausage and Pepper Bites and a spread of refreshing Dr Pepper, you’ll be spending less time cooking and more time cheering on your favorite team.
If there’s anything I love as much as fall season “homegating”, it’s simple recipes to serve family and friends when they come over for the big game! Grab some Dr Pepper and let’s get ready.
We set-up a few easy appetizers and let everyone serve themselves as the game goes on. It’s a no-fuss way to host and enjoy the game at the same time. And paper plates & napkins, always. Our go-to beverage for home gating parties is Dr Pepper, with its rich, indulgent flavor. Actually- it’s the official drink of football fans! It balances out the classic football food served at parties. Fill up the cooler for your home gating party and you’re good-to-go!
We love it with the savory flavor of the Eckrich® Turkey Smoked Sausage in these Sausage and Pepper Bites. This is such a simple recipe, it’ll become your go-to all season long. You can even prep it ahead of time– score!
Eckrich smoked sausage is so easy to prepare, which means less time in the kitchen. Simply grill or heat it up according to the package instructions.
Meanwhile, chop up roasted red peppers (you can roasted your own or buy the jarred kind) and mozzarella cheese sticks.
Once the smoked sausage has cooled off, skewer a piece of pepper, mozzarella, and smoked sausage onto a toothpick. Let out the appetizer bites on a platter and finish off with a generous drizzle of Italian dressing. YUM. Perfect with a cold Dr Pepper! Run, don’t walk to get yourself some of these perfectly sized glasses for your Dr Pepper. Plus the red swirl is the best accent!
- 1 package Eckrich® Turkey Smoked Sausage
- 8 oz roasted red peppers, chopped into bite-sized pieces
- 6 mozzarella sticks, same as above

- Heat up Eckrich® Turkey Smoked Sausage according to package instructions. Chop into bite-sized pieces. These color coated, paring knives are the best for small jobs, and you can use a different color for different types of food!

Toothpicks work great for this, but I love using these fun skewers just to jazz things up!
