I've been doing a lot of scientific research on snack foods with my football-loving friends. We asked ourselves, what is it that makes a great snack table while watching the game? We determined (scientifically, of course) that the best game-watching fare was supported by what I have now named The Seven Pillars of Sunday Football Snacking. The ideal snacking table is represented by each of the seven pillars: Spicy Foods, Cheesy Foods, Sticky Foods, Crunchy Foods, Salty Foods, Sweet Foods, and Dips. When all of these foods come together with your favorite ice cold beverages, it doesn't matter who wins the game!
Need some inspiration for your snack table? Here are some recipes I've gathered for each of the Seven Pillars:
Spicy Foods Hot Chicken Wings Spicy Roasted Chickpeas Spicy Potato Wedges Cheesy Foods Jalapeño Cheese Ball Cheesy Mushroom Pull Apart Bread Mac & Cheese Bites
Sticky Foods Caramel Sea Salt Popcorn Balls Honey Sesame Chicken Mint Green Rice Krispy Treats
Crunchy Foods Crunchy Mozzarella Sticks Caramel Dipped Pretzel Rods Pumpkin Seed Trail Mix Salty Foods Pigs in Pretzel Blankets Super Roast Beef Sliders Bacon and Browned Butter Cookies Sweet Foods Baked Cake Donuts Chocolate Whoopie Pies Molasses Spice Cookies
