Everyone loves this time of year – that’s right – football season! If you like to make the most of the game each week, chances are you love having friends and family over to watch with you. If this is the case, make sure your snack game is on point. Some tips to help you do that can be found here.
Have you ever gone to a football party where someone brought a true rack of ribs? If so, you probably want to invite them to every party you throw.Keep in mind, there is a way to completely lose the rib game – bring pre-made “fake” ribs from fast-food establishment. It’s better to go empty handed.
It’s pretty hard to go wrong when you serve tiny cheeseburgers. Now, if you want to ensure your burgers win the day, think of something unique for the recipe. For example, instead of traditional beef consider Kobe beef, wagyu, or lamb. Make sure the cheese component is amazing, as well – skip the typical American. Also, lay out all the veggie options someone may want – caramelized onions, onions, tomatoes, arugula, pickles – the sky is the limit.
Also, if you have a few vegetarian friends, why not offer some option for them. You should avoid turkey burger sliders. While people will eat them, they are probably going to resent you for this dry, tasteless option.
Be sure that you notice the most important word in this snack – soft! You don’t want to purchase a bag of hard pretzels – these are what you eat when you drink the leftover beer later in the night because your team lost the big game.
The pretzels are the easy part of this snack. You need to make sure you take along extra salt, and an array of dipping sauces, beyond the hot cheese (which is an absolute must-have). Some other options include pizza sauce, stone ground mustard, chocolate, caramel, and more.
Anything Wrapped in Bacon
One of the best parts of wrapping, well, anything, in bacon is that it’s going to be memorable. For example, you can make bacon-wrapped pork medallions with small toothpicks – everyone is sure to love this unique snack. Other options include bacon-wrapped scallops and even bacon-wrapped bacon – after all, is there such thing as too much bacon?
Try to get some cheese in there, as well. For example, everyone enjoys a good bacon-wrapped jalapeno popper. All you need to avoid is letting the bacon get cold – this is going to be a definite party snack killer.
