Well Football season has officially started. The games have been on all day Sunday. I thought with that in mind, why not do a round-up of my favorite football favorite recipes. My favorite part of the game is snacking. I could skip a meal and just snack if I could. I love finger foods and appetizers. Yum, yum! So with that in mind, sit back, relax and check out these easy football recipes that even a mans man will love! Trust me, they won’t know that it’s lower in calories and fat. So let’s get the season started with these football favorites.
Start your gathering with an Antipasto Salad
Baked Buffalo Chicken Wings; so good you don’t even know they are baked.
Breaded Chicken Fingers; perfect for dipping in BBQ sauce or hot sauce.
Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Cakes; I love these, it’s like a chicken wing in a patty form.
Classic Chex Mix Party Mix; easy for snacking on. I saw on TV, that crunchy foods eliminates stress when watching football.
Hot Black Bean Dip – Grab some tortilla and start dipping on this slightly spicy dip.
Jalapenos Wrapped in Bacon; need I say more? Spicy and salty, just amazing and ummm… bacon!!!
Kicked Up Guacamole; perfect for topping on tacos and dipping chips in.
Loaded Baked Potato Skins; they may be loaded, but more than half the calories of the ones served in restaurants.
Peanut Butter and Pretzel Popcorn Balls; this is so fun to eat and super easy. I used stre bought popcorn to put this together in a jiffy.
Pico de Gallo; if you have tortilla chips, you need salsa. Try this healthy, spicy one for dipping or topping.
Beef Gyros; this is a great sandwich that isn’t to messy.
Flank Steak with Spicy Chimichurri Sauce; this cooks every quick on the grill and is perfect for topping on a tortilla.
Lightened Up Philly Cheesesteak in a Crockpot; enjoy the game as your meat is cooking. Once the meat is done, it is fast to put together.
Restaurant Style Burger; this by far my favorite burger ever. It has bacon, cheese and a chipotle yogurt sauce. It’s made in a skillet and simply the best homemade burger ever!
Tex Mex Chili in Crockpot; put this together in the morning and get ready to serve it for dinner. So tasty and so easy to make. Don’t feel like a bowl of chili? Dip Fritos in it!! 🙂
Artichoke and Jalapeno Ranch Dip; it’s hot, spicy and really low calorie. I made it with yogurt.
Buffalo Wing Dip; a simple dip that tastes just like chicken wings. Perfect for dipping chips and celery in.
Sweet & Savory Mixed Nuts; I love nuts and grabbing a hand handful while cheering for your game is fun!
Well that’s it for me. As I am writing this I am snacking on hummus and pretzels, while listening to the football game in the background.
Have a great day!
