Game food porn, despite my heavy heart

We played like shit against the Cowboys last night, and the score reflected that poor performance. You can't turn the ball over four times and expect to win. We didn't. The game food was better, but we did have what I think is the first-ever game food failure. I picked a promising recipe, but it turned out to suck.

 First, we will go with the game food that didn't suck. These three items are old reliables. First, we had the stuffed tater tots:


We also had stuffed potato skins, because that's what we do:


Then I threw in some mini-lasagnas, always a winner:


Then I tried a new recipe. It really didn't work. You start with a box of macaroni and cheese mix, prepared according to the instructions. Add about a half-cup of mayonnaise:


Stir that up, then add cooked broccoli and stir that in thoroughly:


Add some cooked chicken, the put the mixture in a greased muffin pan:


Cook it for 15-20 minutes, then let it stand for at least 5 minutes before you try to take it out of the pan. As you can see, my effort failed to maintain its muffin-cup shape:


I'm not sure why the recipe failed. Mrs. Wolves has a theory, though: "No cheese, no sticky-sticky, no goody-goody." I think she might be right. Maybe cheese, maybe more mayo. Hell, I don't know. It tasted fine, but it was basically macaroni and cheese with chicken and broccoli stirred in. Not what we were looking for. Kind of like the game result.
