Attention football fans: the big game is upon us! Whether you possess the utmost dedication to the sport or simply watch the Superbowl every year, it’s safe to say that this weekend all Americans will be giving a major F together. With all the Superbowl parties planned for Sunday, this gives us a great opportunity to start the celebration early with some Friday night football feasting!
Here are five tasty and delicious recipes to show you #giveanF this weekend.
Pastrami Football Finger Sandwiches
Bring some Katz Delicatessen into your home, football style. Everyone loves mini sandwiches—they’re cute, require no silverware and mask the idea of portion sizes way too well. Make a bunch, and have fun experimenting with different sides and toppings.
Spiced Popcorn With Pecan and Raisins
Popcorn is the ultimate party food: it is super addicting and complements a variety of flavor combinations. Make yours a bit healthier this year by combining protein-packed nuts, metabolism-boosting spices and coconut oil drizzle, shown to promote digestion and supply the body with healthy fats to lower cholesterol.
Deviled Cheese Toasts
For a new take on the standard quesadilla, try this hottie instead. With peppers, sharp cheese and hot sauce, you’ll need a beer handy to chug away the heat. Requiring roughly five minutes, these you can make while the party is going. You can also create a “cheese toast bar”, and allow guests to choose their toppings.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Touchdown Footballs
Here’s your excuse to eat cookie dough, without worrying about salmonella! These tiny football cookie dough bites are super easy to pull together and will impress all your guests. Go for dark chocolate chips for some extra antioxidants and richness.
As Jews, we love food and football. Bringing a bit of Jewish flavor to our Superbowl festivities should be a given. Cook up these simple, savory, garlicky meatballs, stab with a toothpick and serve over a bed of lettuce for all guests to enjoy. Include caramelized onions and roasted eggplant or peppers to boost the veggie profile. If beef isn’t your thing, feel free to substitute for ground turkey or chicken.
