Are you ready for some football?
With Super Bowl Sunday right around the corner, great snacks are always the best strategy – no matter what team you root for (Go Steelers!).
Here are a few great snack recipes and ideas for ready-made snacks to feed your rabid Super Bowl fans on Super Bowl Sunday.
For homemade snacks, try one of these.
Crock Pot Nacho Dip
Put the following ingredients into your crock pot:
1 pound browned and drained ground beef or turkey
1 pound mild cheese melt (I.e. Velveeta)
1 pound medium cheese melt
1 can rotel tomatoes
Turn crock pot on medium until melted, stir together then reduce heat to keep warm. Serve with corn chips.
Prepare one round loaf of Hawaiian bread as follows: Using a knife, scoop out the center of the Hawaiian bread to form a bowl. Place the Hawaiian bread on a large plate or platter. Set aside the scooped-out bread.
1 cup salad dressing (Miracle Whip)
1 cup (8 oz.) sour cream
3 Tbsp. Dill weed
1 Tbsp. Parsley flakes
1 Tsp. Garlic or onion powder
Spoon the dip into the scooped-out center of the Hawaiian bread. Cut or tear the saved bread into small, bite-size chunks for dipping. Arrange these on the plate around the Hawaiian bread.
Sugared Little Smokies
Cut slices of bacon or turkey bacon into four smaller slices then wrap each piece around a cocktail sausage and secure with a toothpick. Arrange in a single layer on a baking pan then cover with about one pound of brown sugar.
Put the pan in the oven under the broiler until the brown sugar has melted.
Transfer the whole shebang into a crockpot and heat on low. Delicious!
This is a family recipe that is simply yummy.
In a bowl, add one package of cream cheese, a dash or two (flavor to taste) of Worcestershire sauce and a pinch of garlic or onion salt. With clean hands mold the cream cheese and other ingredients into a ball then roll in bacon bits.
Put this on a plate and surround with crackers.
For heat-at-home ready-made Super Bowl snacks, try mozzarella sticks, taquitos, pizza rolls, chicken nuggets, tater tots, soft pretzels or pretzel bites.
If you’re looking for a more healthy snack alternative to junk food, make a fruit and vegetable tray. Include seedless grapes, cauliflower, baby carrots, dill pickles, sweet pickles, grape tomatoes, slices of kiwifruit, apple slices or chunks, broccoli, strawberries, or blueberries.
