It’s the time of year again! I can’t say I’m much for sports but I sure can’t resist an afternoon filled with THE PUPPY BOWL! If you haven’t already, I can’t express how much better your day will be after checking out this year’s line up. Otis, Gordon, and Cornbread already have my heart just from looking through the pictures but I’ll be pleased to watch all of them on Sunday.
To make sure your Puppy Bowl XII is as enjoyable as it can be for both you and your pup (and kitties!), I’ve made a snack round up for the big event! I picked snacks based off of three criteria: is it animal themed in any way?, is it quiet so you won’t miss a moment of commentary? And is it delicious? Of course, all these snacks are also meat-free (always <3) so enjoy!
SAVORY SNACKS FOR YOU:
Baked Sweet Potato Samosas: Samosas get an upgrade with this meat-free version made of spelt flour. Make these on Saturday and pre-heat on Sunday afternoon before game time.
Garden Tart with Roasted Red Pepper Spread: The base of this tart is frozen puff pastry for a quick and simple tart that can be whipped up in under an hour.
Chili Lime Popcorn Cashew Clusters: No party revolving around the TV is complete without popcorn! This version is chocked full of cashews and flavors from the chili and lime.
Loaded Bánh mì Sweet Potato Fries: Enjoy next level snacking with these baked sweet potato fries that are then loaded with all the amazingly delicoius toppings you’d fine on a Bánh mì!
Quinoa Onion Rings with Horseradish Dip: Laura Wright is basically a genius and has a way of mixing unusual ingredients together to create something truly amazing. These baked onion rings are coated with puffed quinoa and seasoned with Old Bay.
Chickpea Cobb Salad Cups: Everything is better miniature and these salad cups are yet another example of that. The elements of this salad can be prepared the day before to allow for just a quick assembling session before your Puppy Bowl event.
Baked Cajun Spiced French Fries: simple baked french fries seasoned with cajun. What more could you even need?
Mini Pimento Mac & Cheese Bites: These little bites are a mix between baked macaroni and cheese and pimento dip – how could anyone resist?
