The weekend is almost upon us & some people are particularly pumped for this Sunday due to a little thing called the Super Bowl. Me? I couldn’t really care less about the “big game,” especially since it’s overshadowing the real holiday to be celebrated on February 5 ::cough::cough::mybirthday.
Even though I’m not the biggest football fan, Chris & I will be attending a Super Bowl get-together hosted by his oldest brother. While the game doesn’t ignite feelings of excitement, the thought of a spread of snacks certainly does!
I want to contribute something to the party, so of course I took to Pinterest for some ideas. (You can follow me on Pinterest here.) I’m still deciding exactly what I want to make, but these ideas were too good not to share!
A healthified version of the usually indulgent dip! The ingredient list is short & sweet, which is always a huge plus in my book.
I love how pretty this appetizer is! It’s the perfect size bite & won’t make a mess. This one has a short ingredient list as well; I’m all about the simplicity!
Burgers are the perfect “sports-watching food,” & I love this creative spin on the classic burger & fries combo. Probably not the healthiest option, but I’m sure it’s tasty & would definitely be a crowd-pleaser.
This is advertised as an Easter side dish, but is there ever a bad time for loaded mashed potatoes? Answer: no!
Chris’s sister always brings a similar taco dip to their family get-togethers. I love the ease of the layering technique used in this dish & the quick cooking time – only 20 minutes! Plus, I have the perfect Pyrex dish for this that I haven’t had a use for yet. 😉
How cute are these?! And such an original flavor combination! I think these would definitely be a hit with the guys. I want to give these a try, I’m just not sure I’ll have the time before Sunday!
Definitely click the link above; Nikki links to tons of Super Bowl-appropriate recipes. These strawberries just happened to be the one that caught my eye! You can order these treats, pre-made, here, but if you’ve got the time & the skill-set, I say save yourself $44 & make ‘em at home!
Do you look forward to the Super Bowl?
