I hear there’s a big football game coming up.
The Hubby even told me last night who’s playing in it, not that I can actually remember.
You see, I’m not a huge fan of football. Shocking right?
Yeah, not so much.
When it comes to sports, I don’t waste my energy. I need to save my mental prowess for other things; better things, foodie things.
Plus, sitting around watching a bunch of men in tight costumes moaning and grunting, while playing with balls of various shapes and sizes, isn’t my idea of a good time. In fact, it sounds a bit like a bad porno or perhaps most men on a Tuesday night or any night of the week for that matter. I understand self satisfaction is a big deal for that gender. Hey, whatever floats your boat.
Now food on the other hand, that’s something I can happily embrace, preferably with both hands before promptly shoveling it into my face. I don’t even need a costume or the privacy of my own home to do it.
Today, I’ve decided to leave the football to the pros, professional athletes and porn stars alike, and instead share some of my favorite Game Day Appetizers.
Bring on the cheese!
Game Day Appetizer Round Up
With the addition of white beans and Greek yogurt, this Dip is a lightened up version of a classic. The leftovers, should there be any, also make a fantastic grilled cheese, which is great for soaking up booze; not that I would know (cough, cough).
This is a fan favorite with my friends. They beg me for it every year, and I certainly wouldn’t want to disappoint them.
Amid the beer, the booze, the bread and the cheese (all of which I support), this flavor packed Herb Dip is a nutrient dense oasis. You’ll be surprised at how quickly those veggies disappear.
Shake up your traditional salsa and invite sweet potatoes to the party instead. One bite and your friends will thank you.
This one needs no explanation. I could devour this entire baguette in a matter of seconds.
Baked crispy cheese with spicy things on top. I’ll take ten.
Simple, elegant, a pain in the ass to chop, and totally worth it. Besides, a little hydration helps cut tomorrow’s hangover, but I don’t need to tell you that.
Clearly I have a things for beans, cheese and bread; with good reason I might add.
A Standup Snack Platter
No party is complete with a glorious snack platter, incorporating all of your favorite things with a few surprises.
It wouldn’t be a full on recipe round up from me without a little extra spud loving tossed into the mix. I could eat these for days, not that they’d last that long.
So tell me, which appetizer would you eat first?
