It’s that time of year again! You know, when you gather a bunch of your friends together with your favorite beers and snacks to hang out all day eating and drinking and watching the best commercials money can buy. Oh, and I guess there’s a game before and after a halftime show too. 😉
Ok I’m not a huge football fan. And even though my husband is, it’s for the original football, soccer. With that said, I am a fan of hanging out with friends eating and drinking while football is on the TV! While everyone else’s focus is on the game, my is usually on the snacks. So for you fellow football snack connoisseurs, here’s a list of 21 of my favorite Superbowl worthy Snacks From Scratch! First, one of my personal favorites and weaknesses, Tater Tots. Making them from scratch was way easier than I thought! Then served with some 5 minute homemade ketchup, and it’s the ultimate snack from scratch.Another little dip-able bite of deliciousness? These from scratch Pretzel Bites with a Hot Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce are a hit at every party we bring them to. You can even skip the butter wash and make them vegan friendly.Need a little more heat? These Jalapeno Poppers from Scratch are made with a mixture of homemade feta and cream cheese. Plus it’s topped with bacon, which of course just makes it better.Speaking of bacon… Guinness. Candied. Bacon. That’s all I’ll say about that.Well now that you have that homemade feta and cream cheese, you can just whip them together and make a Whipped Feta and Arugula Crostini on a from scratch baguette.Or try making some fresh ricotta cheese from scratch and use the other baguette for these Ricotta Chimichurri Bruschetta.
For a more traditional snack, I’ve got you covered with some Homemade Guacamole and Flour Tortilla Chips from scratch.Have some gluten free friends? Then try some Corn Tortilla Chips from scratch.Or some super healthy Spelt Crackers from scratch!Serve them with some Vegan Mushroom Tapanade for your vegan friends!Gluten free, vegan, and paleo diets you need to accommodate? Then this Avocado Corn Salsa is a must because your regular diet friends will have no idea it’s any of the above.I think it’s best with some from scratch Pita Chips.Or with some buttery Ritz Crackers from scratch! But if cheesy crackers are more your thing, then try some Homemade Cheez-Its!Or get even crazier with some homemade Cheddar and Sour Cream Potato Chips.Or some “Cheezy” Kale Chips for the vegans in the group.Get even fancier with some Sun dried Tomato Cashew Kale Chips.And while you’re at it, toss those sun dried tomatoes from scratch into some hummus!But you can’t forget the peanuts, like these Honey Roasted Peanuts. They’re one of our classic, go-to football watching snacks.Or twist a classic and make some Mini Sweet Pepper Nachos!And finally, it’s not a football party without some wings. Or buffalo legs, if you don’t have wings. But whatever buffalo meaty-ness you’re serving, serve it with some Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing to complete your ultimate Superbowl Snacks From Scratch party!
Go Pats! Oh wait… yeah guess I’ll really only be concerned with the snacks and Budweiser Clydesdales this year 😉
