Full disclosure. I have absolutely zero plans to do anything special this Sunday. I just can’t find the energy to get excited about sports, no matter how hard I try (and no matter how much beer I drink).
However, for those of you who are prepping for the big game, here are a few last minute treats you might want to add to your menu, featuring tasty dips, more substantial nibbles, and more bacon and cheese than you can shake a stick at.
This made-from-scratch version of the classic uses a yogurt base for a lighter, tangier flavour that’ll have you wondering why you ever bothered with soup mix.
I think this one speaks for itself. Because bacon. And cheese. And jalapeno. (Oh, and there’s some beer in there, too.)
The only thing better than homemade spinach and artichoke dip, piping hot from the oven and full of gooey cheese? Spinach artichoke dip with bacon, of course.
Yes, I know football games are supposed to be an excuse to eat as much bacon and cheese as humanly possible, but think of this as your token healthy option. Variety is the spice of life, after all.
The secret ingredient for these sweet and sticky wings? Good ol’ cola. Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it. Bonus: You don’t have to futz with the deep-fryer to make these!
I created these Asian-inspired nachos for my friends over at Peanut Butter & Co. They’re made with all the good stuff – crispy baked wonton “chips”, bite-sized pieces of chicken and fresh stir-fried veggies, all smothered in melted cheese and spicy-sweet-tangy satay sauce. You need these. Trust me.
If you’re looking for some healthy (not not too healthy) game day nibbles, a slider-sized version of these sriracha-spiked turkey burgers is the perfect choice.
Can’t pick between pizza and wings? These single-serve pizzettes let you get the best of both worlds, with a thin crispy crust and buffalo chicken inspired toppings.
Take it from a born and bred Canadian. Poutine and sports were made for each other. If this version is too high-falutin’ for your crowd, you can always settle for good ol’ french fries, gravy and cheese curds. (But for the love of all that’s holy, do not resort to shredded cheese. That’s just wrong.)
If your team loses, you can drown your sorrows with some chocolate-peanut butter goodness. And if your team wins, you’re going to want to celebrate with something sweet. I think that counts as a win-win.
