Super Bowl Sunday Snacks
By Live. Laugh. Cook. on January 30, 2014
Super Bowl Sunday — it is upon us.
While I am a football fan and enjoy watching a good game, I more look forward to getting together with friends and/or family for watching parties where the room is filled with yummy food, a variety of beverages, and good company. With that sentiment in mind, I thought I’d whip up some quick and easy appetizer ideas in case you’re looking for something delicious to have/bring this Sunday:
- Crab & Artichoke Wontons – I bought the crab & artichoke dip already made from Whole Foods (it was cheaper than buying all the ingredients to make it and much easier)
- Artichoke & Spinach Tartelettes - I too bought this dip from Whole Foods (not necessarily cheaper, but definitely easier) and made the tart shells from scratch in a matter of minutes
- Spicy Chili & Cheese Calzones – This is based on one of my favorite dips growing up, I made the dip this time, but bought ready-made pizza dough
When I’m making a lot of little bites, I won’t necessarily make everything from scratch if I can get comparable quality. So I took a couple short cuts this time, but all 3 turned out amazingly! Mirza and I taste tested the apps over the weekend (the calzones were our favorite), but I froze the rest to have for this Sunday.
Whether you’re a football fan or not, the Super Bowl is hard to miss. If you’re not into the game, you’re probably watching it for the commercials. If you’re not watching it for the commercials or the game, maybe you’re watching it for the halftime show. Okay — sure, maybe you’re not watching the Super Bowl at all, but heck, should that stop you from making delicious snack foods to enjoy?!
