Super Bowl Food and Hot Feta Artichoke Dip

Ok I will admit it, I get more excited about food than football. There, I said it. I honestly was just reminded that the Super Bowl was coming up from one of my friend’s blogs. I just don’t get into pro football, but don’t hate me. I am still here to bring you some yummy  food ideas for your Super Bowl party.

I wanted to make a dip because who doesn’t love dips during games? My big ol’ Costco size tub of feta was looking at me and I immediately thought of this super simple hot feta artichoke dip that I’ve been making forever. I usually make it around the Holidays (Christmas Eve or Easter), but it is a great addition to any party.

This is a perfect example of a dish that requires no skill. Just chop a couple things, mix in a bowl, then bake. When I see those jarred bottles of artichoke dip it makes me crazy. I am not admitting this to be the healthiest of dips but at least it isn’t full of preservatives! Anyone can make this! Feel free to bump up the nutrition by adding spinach or sauteed mushrooms. I’ve done both and it works well. You might need to add more Greek yogurt or mayo but it’s an easy adjustment.

The great thing about appetizers for parties or game days is that you can really create a meal with a bunch of small plates. Need some other ideas? How about my turkey burger sliders? Love this size for sandwiches/burgers. For my vegan friends, you could easily make veggie burgers too and cut them into pieces.

or you could make a big Crock Pot full of Pulled BBQ Chicken and have the mini rolls and all the fixings on the side for people to serve themselves or you could make these Pesto Parmesan Turkey Burgers and form them into smaller patties for sliders….or you could make a pot of vegetarian chili and serve it with tortilla chips and all the fun chili toppings.

But wait…there’s more!

      Oh good I wasn’t the only one! I still can’t believe football season is over. Shows how fast these years fly by!

      Leave it to a food blogger to catch my mistake! Haha. I knew the recipe looked funny! I actually had it right the first time and then my work didn’t get saved so the second time around I guess my brain was fried and I left that ingredient off. Thanks for catching that!

      My pleasure. I love feta too. That is why I can’t resist that giant tub from Costco! Eat on on salad almost daily and love it with scrambled eggs…oh and everything else. ;)
