Seven fan-friendly snacks for the big game
We love a red velvet cake situation. If cheese is involved? Even better. Smitten Kitchen’s simple fromage fort — essentially a kitchen sink recipe — is a pleasing substitute. It may not be red, but you won’t care after you taste it.
Rosemary Sea Salt Crackers and Nutty Guacamole
In lieu of a seven-layer dip, steer a wee bit healthier with Healthy Green Kitchen’s protein-packed guacamole smeared on Sunday Suppers’s rosemary black sea salt crackers. (And make room on your bookshelf for HGK’s new book.)
If only you had the hand-eye coordination to make tiny potato footballs (let alone throw a football). We’re partial to Lottie + Doof’s potato skins — and not just because they require zero athleticism.
The Best Brownies
You’ve got every ingredient for a fondant fest — save for patience. Guests forget about looks when you serve A Sweet Spoonful’s brownies (adapted from Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc at Home). Grab a copy of Megan Gordon’s new book for whole grain takes on breakfast.
Curried Egg Salad
101 Cookbooks never steers us wrong. Case in point: a creamy, still-good-for-you take on egg salad. Smear it on crackers or toast for a touchdown.
Pickled Melon Spring Rolls
Nutrition coach Ashley Neese’s snacks may be a bit more labor intensive than we’re used to. But the result — crunchy, portable, veggie packed — could cause dancing in the end zone.
