Superbowl Food Extravaganza!

1 Feb

Let’s be real for a moment here, I’m not a huge sports lover, but I am married to one! And for this reason, I have learned to make events like the Superbowl more of a social and fun gathering that just happens to involve the TV. And what a better way to do that then devour in making and eating yummy food?

I also have to admit, I love competition and commercials too. And don’t forget hearing people talk smack about another person’s team, like they coach or own it; that always makes me laugh.

But you’re here for the food. So what has Dish Dash Dime selected to make this weekend? Well, for Superbowl food this year, I thought about three things:

  1. Fast and Easy – This isn’t a gourmet feast
  2. Don’t wanna break the bank over appetizers
  3. Quality in quantity – Feeding the masses as you’d feed just your family

Now those three things seem like they don’t really go together. Rarely do you find quality with quantity at an inexpensive price. Or something that is fast and easy, but also has a quality aspect as well. On another note, since I’m not hosting, but rather attending a party this year, I wanted to make sure that Mr. Dash and myself would have some healthy go-to eats while still enjoying the comfort foods sure to tempt us all night long. I also know some friends that enjoy healthier takes on what should be fatty foods. So on the Superbowl menu this year, we have a selection of seven appetizers, some healthier than others, made for easy snacking and grazing.

  1. Sweet BBQ Chicken Bites
  2. Potato Skins
  3. Guacamole
  4. Turkey Pigs in a Blanket
  5. Potato Wedges
  6. Turkey Bacon Sliders

Now off the bat, those all just sound, well, like good old-fashion bar food/comfort food, filled with all kinds of hidden calories and fat. But you already loose about 20% of those hidden ingredients by cooking up these simple and easy appetizers yourself.

To help with preparation, the guacamole, chicken for the bites, turkey burgers, bacon, and chicken for the nachos can be made the night before. Potato Skins, Wedges and the Pigs in the Blanket are best served fresh they can become soggy in the refrigerator.

Throughout the next few days, we’ll talk about each of these appetizers, sure to make you’re Superbowl party a food extravaganza!
