The biggest game day of the year is nearly here! (That’s the Superbowl, next Sunday, for those of you who are even more clueless when it comes to sports than I am..lol)
From what I hear, the Seahawks and Patriots are going to duke it out and most of the world is going to join in as armchair quarterbacks, with their hands in the chip bowl. While I’m a subpar sports fan, I did grow up in Seattle, which makes this game a teensy-weensy bit more interesting.
Superbowl parties are when many people put down their New Year’s resolution to eat better, throw caution to the wind and plow through bowls of salty, crunchy, grain-filled snacks. Yes, those cute football-shaped cheetos taste good, but on Monday morning you’re going to wake up feeling bloated and yucky. Soooo, I have a better plan for you.
I thought this would be the perfect time to share an excerpt from my new cookbook, The Recipe Hacker, for the ultimate game day snack that tastes really naughty, without the food hangover. Now if you chase these Bacon Wrapped Peppers with a 6-pack of beer, then I can’t help you with that hangover 🙂
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Slice the peppers in half, lengthwise. Scoop out and discard the seeds. Fill each pepper with Dairy-Free Cheese Spread.
- Wrap each pepper with a slice of bacon. Secure with a toothpick.
- Place the wrapped peppers in a single layer on the prepared baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, and then place under the broiler on high for 2 minutes, until lightly browned. Enjoy!
