Game Day Snack Ideas

Let's not settle for all those standard greasy  game day snacks this year.  There are so many ways to snack happy while keeping things a little lighter.  Here are some crowd-pleasing ideas to try

Healthier game day snack recipes and ideas! Perfect for appetizers!

When it comes to dips, you can't beat a good old fashioned guacamole. My easy guacamole recipe only has a few ingredients and takes just minutes to make! 


Another easy dip idea that people usually buy instead of make is hummus.  And if you've ever made hummus before, you'll know that it tastes SO much better than the store-bought stuff.  It's surprisingly easy to make, and my favorite version is this perfect roasted red pepper hummus recipe


This easy guacamole recipe is ready in minutes and is so much better than a store-bought version!
The perfect roasted red pepper hummus recipe is here!  This healthy snack or appetizer is easy to prepare and full of flavor!

This one has become a family-favorite at our house:  stuffed bacon cream cheese jalapeno poppers.  They don't need more of introduction than that!  And no one would guess these are actually lighter than traditional jalapeno poppers.

If you've got vegetarians joining the party, these baked vegetarian chili cheese taquitos are easy to make, and meat-eaters won't even notice they're actually made with vegetarian chili!  #sneakychef  ;)

No one willl notice there's no meat in these vegetarian baked chili cheese taquitos!  They're easy to make and wonderful for snacks, appetizers, or as a quick weeknight dinner recipe!

If you're in a hurry and don't have time to make homemade hummus or guacamole, you can always grab a few store-bought ingredients, place them on a large cutting board or platter with some whole grain bagel chips, and let your guests assemble their own hummus snack bites.  Simple, interactive, and easy to customize for each person. 

Quick hummus snack bites are the perfect semi-homemade healthy appetizer!  Store-bought hummus, avocado, pico de gallo, and Greek yogurt come together for this easy snack that people can assemble themselves at a party!

Last, but certainly not least is one of the most popular recipes on my blog:  homemade sour cream and onion mix.  You can make a batch of this mix and sprinkle it over popcorn or mix into sour cream or Greek yogurt for a quick alternative to regular ranch dip. 

Happy Game Day!
