Healthy Football Recipes
First up, Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Mustard Sauce.
Barbecue guru Steve advises, “[Hickory is] rich-flavored, with an earthy sweetness that goes well with pork.” This is a pulled pork sandwich unlike any other.
You may think of chicken wings as bar food, but these saucy babies are great for, say, watching Monday Night Football. We ditched the standard deep-frying procedure in favor of a two-step steam-and-sauté method that maintains the plump, juicy goodness of the wings while curtailing the messy effects of oil in the kitchen and on the waistline. These crowd-pleasers are a breeze to prepare, and we offer three bold flavor variations to please a variety of tastebuds.
Caramelized Onion, Gruyère, and Bacon Spread
Tex-Mex Hash Brown Casserole
Bacon and Cheddar Sliders
Rosemary Roasted Almonds
Creole Deviled Eggs
Creamy Ranch-Style Dip
Serve this dip to your football crowd with baby carrots, broccoli florets, or other fresh vegetables.
Crispy Pork Spring Rolls
Texas Sheet Cake
Poblano-Turkey Sausage Chili
If you have pint-sized fans to please, use milder green bell peppers in place of poblanos to make it more kid-friendly.
Caramelized Onion Tartlets
Grilled Stuffed Jalapeños
The rich and creamy combination of bacon, cream cheese, and cheddar is a nice foil for the muted spice of grilled jalapeño peppers. This recipe is a healthy, fresh alternative to the popular breaded and fried version. When prepping these poppers for a party, you can stuff the peppers, cover, and chill. Then grill just before your guests arrive.
