Game Day Snacks
by Loree Dowse | January 2018
What’s just as important as the size of the television on which you’ll be watching The Big Game next weekend? The FOOD you’ll be eating, of course! Now, we’re not silly enough to try to steer you away from throwing down a spread of craveable, tailgate-worthy snacks. But may we suggest a few easy ways to add some veggies into the mix? We did, after all, drop some not-so-subtle hints about keeping up with your New Year’s resolutions in our last post. Just saying.
Suggestion #1: Veggie Trays
Vegetable trays are just about the easiest way to get fresh, crunchy veggies into the hands of your friends and family on game day. Paired with classic dips and other munchable combinations, our Snacking Favorites Vegetable Trays are peel-back-the-lid simple. The best part? Through Tuesday, we’ll be sending trays in time for the game to 5 winners who follow us on Instagram @VeggiesMadeEasy. Good luck!
Suggestion #2: Sugar Snap Peas
We keep talking about them because, well, they’re worth talking about. Sweet, crunchy and delicious, sugar snap peas go well with dips of all kinds and are a great alternative to chips.
Suggestion #3: Start Cooking
In the mood to get in the kitchen and whip up some tasty game day fare? You can’t go wrong with the recipes below.
Warning: this dip is seriously addictive. Serve this straight out of the oven with some sliced baguette, and watch your hot wings get the cold shoulder.
The smokiness of the cured salmon along with the chipotle drizzle is a perfect counterpoint to our Kale Beet Blend. These go down in about two flavorful bites.
This beet and walnut hummus gets an extra punch of flavor from the addition of blue cheese. Paired with sugar snap peas, you get a serious explosion of yumminess in your mouth.
These pot stickers take a bit of work, but they’re worth it. You can even assemble them the day before, and cook them just before the game starts.
This recipe made it to the finals at a food show a couple months ago, and the judges – kids from a local elementary school – inhaled them. Put a bowl of marinara sauce out for dipping, and watch them disappear.
Enjoy the game!
