Game Day Appetizers

Game Day Appetizers

Bring on the dips, meatballs and finger foods — it’s football season! Whether your team wins or loses, we have game day food inspiration for the win.

Tomatoes:  Since tomatoes are a heartier fruit, they can easily be used as a bowl to fill with all kinds of tasty creations. Try Ricotta-Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes or Avocado Pesto-Stuffed Tomatoes. For a fresh spin on the classic chips-and-salsa combo, whip up Rainbow Salsa. Or bring on the heat with Roasted Tomato Salsa.

Eggplant:  Here’s a little grower secret: eggplant is highly versatile. It can be cooked and rolled like a wrap in Grilled Eggplant Rolled with Ricotta and Basil, used in lieu of bread in pizza, or even as a stand-in for buns in Eggplant & Mozzarella Stacks. Once you’ve tried this hearty vegetable in these roles, you’ve already won.

Cucumber:  Patiently waiting on the sidelines is the cool, crunchy cucumber. It’s another perfect replacement for wraps in Cucumber Avocado Rolls or can be used as a boat to stuff all kind of savory combos, like Cumin Orange Shrimp-Stuffed Cucumber Boats. Want to dip? Try Creamy Cilantro Cucumber Dip.

Sweet Bell Pepper:  Sweet bell peppers can be stuffed with flavorful cheeses like in Peppers Stuffed with Feta. Craving nachos? Serve up Bell Pepper Chicken Nachos for a healthier, colorful alternative that’s sure to be on rotation for future game-watching parties.
