Football season has begun and you cannot watch a game without yummy foods.  Creamy dips, delicious finger foods, juicy meats and more go great with an exciting football game.  Creating various finger food options may be the perfect idea.  It is typically hard to get guests off the couch and out of the living room to eat.  Do everyone a favor and make it easy to enjoy while watching the game.  Below are a few easy to eat recipes that will feed a large number of football fans and allow them a free hand to give a high five or hold a drink!

Caprese Bite

This is a simple but delicious recipe that you will definitely run out of!  All you need is cherry tomatoes, basil leaves, mini fresh mozzarella, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. 

You can premake these or have a station for your guests to assemble their own.  You will need 4 bowls.  One bowl will have the ripe cherry tomatoes, the next will have the bite size mozzarella cheese soaked in olive oil, salt and pepper.  Set out basil leaves and a small bowl with mixed sea salt and freshly ground pepper.  Your guests can grab a toothpick and build their Caprese bites the way they like!  Yum.

Mini BLT Sandwiches

Create delicious Bacon Lettuce and Tomato sandwiches on toasted bread.  In order to make these even more delicious, use arugula as your lettuce option.  Make each one mini in size and stick a toothpick through to hold the sandwich together!

Ingredients

  • 6 slices white sandwich bread
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 6 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 3 slices bacon
  • Handful of baby lettuce or romaine leaves torn into small pieces
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Toothpicks, for serving

Directions

Preheat broiler to medium.

Cut each slice of bread into quarters, or, if you want crustless sandwiches, use a 1.5-inch round cookie cutter to cut 4 rounds from each slice of bread. Place the cut bread on a cookie sheet and toast under broiler, 1-2 minutes per side, keeping a close eye on them so they don't burn.

Heat a skillet on medium heat. Add bacon and fry, turning so both sides crisp. Let the bacon drain on a paper towel-lined plate. When cool, cut each slice into 1.5-inch pieces (you should get about 4 pieces per slice).

Spread mayonnaise on 6 pieces of the toasted bread, then add a piece of bacon, a halved cherry tomato and a piece of lettuce. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Finish with another piece of toasted bread, if using, and secure with a toothpick.

For dessert, it is always easy to make brownies or cookies for people to indulge.  We do have one unique, fun option for you to serve.
