Yes, I’m a woman, and yes I love football! It’s honestly safe to say that I’m the bigger football fan over Andrew. Thank goodness I have boys who love playing and watching the game because it’s truly the one thing I can bond with them over.
In our house we bleed black and gold [Steelers] and blue and gold [Pioneers]. So, anytime we’re home to watch a football game I’m on snack duty. Aside from my Buffalo Chicken Dip [that I’ll share in a bit] the most loved football snacks around here are Fire Crackers. A friend of mine made these before Christmas and I instantly knew Andrew would love them. Even though they have a little bit of a kick, I was shocked when all the kids loved these easy football snacks too! There’s a little bit of a bite, but nothing they can’t handle.
Fire Crackers go well with beer or water, no matter the age! Most recipes just call for saltine crackers, however, I changed it up a bit to be more family-friendly.
Easy Football Snacks: Fire Crackers Recipe
1 box of mini saltine crackers
3/4 box of Reduced Fat Cheeze It Crackers
1 bag of mini pretzels
1 C canola or vegetable oil
3 T Rance dressing seasoning (1 envelope)
3 T Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
2 tsp garlic powder.
Mix seasonings and oil then pour over crackers/pretzels. Place the lid over mix and shake about every 5 minutes until absorbed. Store in airtight container.
I’ve been told a time or two that my Buffalo Chicken Dip was the best. It’s even Madison’s favorite dip which says a lot! I shared my famous recipe a few months ago since it’s always a crowd favorite over the summer!
Even though our game went in to OT Sunday, I’m still giving our Steelers the benefit of the doubt. [Hello, we finished the game with a 3rd string QB.] I’m just going to stay strong and continue to eat these easy football snacks, drink my beer and wave the terrible towel!
