Football season is upon us, as Wednesday, September 5th, is the first game of the season. The Bills play September 9th. Sundays are going to get a lot more exciting.
I'm a football fan so I'm looking forward to seeing the new-and-improved defense from the Bills. I'm also a food fan, so I'm looking forward to football snacks!
Being the Bills, obviously the first look is Buffalo Wing Dip
. Chip dip that can be snacked on during the game. Other options similar to this include salsa (check out the September Recipe of the Month coming out 9/1), guacamole
, or cheese and crackers.
But I like some novelty to my football-based snacks.
Towards that end, I saw these football-looking mini subs
. Be sure to do the cross-hatching to make the meatball look like a football. That is clearly the best part.
Just because training camp is over, doesn't mean we can let ourselves go. For those of us trying to keep in football shape, there's a fine array of possibilities. Try out these oven-fried zucchini sticks.
There's also these beer-battered, pan-fried, New England fried shrimp.
PSA: You know what goes well with beer-battered things? Beer. Particularly the same beer. For taste reasons, and because you probably want a nice beer flavor if you're beer-battering, try out a nicer craft beer for this.
Do you have any standard football treats?
