I don’t know if you know this about me, but I love football. Love it. I can’t remember a time in my life that I didn’t sit around on Sundays and watch a game, with or without my dad. If we weren’t together, then I’d call him on big plays or just to say “did you see that?!”
For the opening Cowboys game or special games, I always make us a wonderful meal. Last year when I saw all the #Snackadium pictures going around, I was a little envious. This year, I made up my mind I was going to make my own.
With a little inspiration from Pillsbury’s Pinterest board, I did it. Some friends came over to spend the afternoon together, watch the game and munch on some treats.
This little stadium full of snacks is easy to make and leaves a big impression on people. If you’re having a Super Bowl get together, put one on your table.
My Snackadium included:
Kings Hawaiian Poppyseed Sandwiches
Pigs in a blanket
Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball
Spinach Dip (purchased)
Dill Crackers (used The Original Savory Saltine Seasoning Packet – Garden Dill)
Chicken Artichoke Flatbread
Rolo and Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites
Spinach Artichoke Bites (purchased)
Bag frozen tater tots
1 1/2 lbs bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut bacon in half. Wrap one cut slice of bacon around a frozen tater tot. Continue until you run out of bacon.
Dredge the bacon wrapped tots in brown sugar. Place on a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam cooking spray.
Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Turn tots over and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes until bacon is crispy. Serve warm.
I tin cookie sheet
2 4×8 loaf pans
4 3×5 loaf pans
4 small round serving bowls
Cut one long side of the loaf pans on an angle to make stadium box seats. Cover a piece of cardboard long enough to set your Snackadium (I used wrapping paper). Place large lettuce leaves on the ends for your sandwiches. You will want to place your stadium seats closer to the “field” than I did – I ran out of time and was quickly trying to put everything out before the first guest arrived. I didn’t realize until I was looking at the photos later and saw that they were spaced too far apart.
