Next to Thanksgiving, I think the day of the big game is the biggest cooking day of the year. We all try to come up with fun snacks that the men will eat and the kids will love, and we want to be able to whip them up in time for kickoff. But making just one or two of them never seems to cut it. And then there's the fact that so many game-day recipes require frying and oil, which aren't healthy for anybody.
Below are seven traditional game-day recipes that we baked rather than fried. In the end, we saved time, cleanup and calories. Go team!
I used a 9 x 9-inch baking dish to make this simple jalapeno popper recipe in my oven.
This one requires a little more prep time to cook the chicken. I like to put my chicken breasts in a Dutch oven in the morning. That way, the shredded chicken is usually ready around lunchtime, 3-4 hours later.
Fried pickles are amazing. They're one of my favorite foods, but this lighter version makes for a healthier, grease-free version with the same crunch!
There are numerous versions of this recipe out there, but mine requires very few ingredients, and I guarantee your kids will love it.
If you're looking for something the gals at the game will love, try these. If you bake your egg rolls rather than frying them, they come out much less greasy and just as delicious.
Corn fritters are popular as bar food in the Midwest, but they can be so heavy! By taking a simple corn fritter recipe and transferring it from the fryer to the oven, we've created a great snack that won't weigh people down.
There are many methods of cooking chicken wings. A lot of people deep-fry them, while others boil and then bake them. Our method first puts frozen chicken wings in a slow cooker and then transfers them to the oven.
Have a delicious day!
