Helloooooo… How are you?
Last Sunday was the second Patriots game of the season and I made THE BEST chicken nuggets that I have to share with you guys. And it got me to thinking… I should do a keto friendly football food round up. I know that not all of you are dairy free, so some of these snack have cheese, but if you are dairy free you can always sub it out. For the most part, these appetizers are gluten free, dairy free, soy free, paleo, and low carb! Don’t forget, you can always substitute with GF or DF options.
Keto Friendly Football Food Round Up!
Okay, first on the list is the DELICIOUS chicken nuggets I made last Sunday. I have also made these with haddock and they are amazing. I omit the Parmesan cheese and replace it with almond flour.
I like to pair these with some dairy free ranch dressing or my homemade ranch dressing!
I sub my dairy free cream cheese (get the recipe here) for these babies and omit the shredded cheese.
How cute are these little piggies?! Pigs in a blanket were one of my favorite snacks as a kid. I loved hearing the POP of the Pillsbury can bursting open; anyone else?! So I was super bummed when I went gluten free and thought these were off limits. But Pinterest saved the day (yet again) when they put this GF recipe by Keto Connect in my feed. I can’t wait to try these out for the next football game.
Onions are my kryptonite and this GF blooming onion looks like it will soon be a football snack staple in the Martin household. Is anyone else drooling right now?!
Sometimes the simplest things are the most delicious. I never would have thought to sub out tortilla chips for bacon chips when serving guacamole. Talk about healthy fats galore. This is an all time favorite of ours.
This recipe gives a refreshing twist to your classic chicken salad. I like to serve mine on cucumber slices or with tortilla chips (or bacon chips!). I replace the yogurt with my homemade mayo, although my grocery store just started carrying the So Delicious coconut milk yogurt so I may have to try that in this recipe next time.
I haven’t made these bites yet, but how amazing do they look? I’ve had bacon avocado bites before so when I saw these I knew I had to add these to my ‘try-em’ list!
You can’t go wrong with deviled eggs. They are always the first snack to disappear at any party. They are my go-to snack and are so easy to dress up. Add bacon, chives, sriracha, everything bagel toppings, guacamole filling, you name it! The sky is the limit when it comes to deviled egg combinations.
