Snacking on the Cheap: Football!

21 Oct

Last Saturday was a big college football day at our house. Both my husband and I are big SEC football fans. Me, I’m a die-hard Georgia fan. My husband likes Arkansas. My daughter, she likes Georgia because UGA is cute. Georgia and Arkansas played last week. We made a last-minute decision to watch the game at home. We raced to get home before kickoff so we decided to just snack on what we had at home.

You can do a quick football spread on the cheap if you plan ahead and keep some basic staples in the house. The first thing I decided to do was make a potato chip platter with onion dip. I had eight bags of Snyder of Berlin Potato Chips. I had four different flavors, Original, Salt & Vinegar, Cheddar & Sour Cream and Honey BAR B-Q. I placed each flavor in a different section in my chip dish with the onion dip in the middle. It looked like this:


This was a great quick little treat that was easy to throw together and will not break the bank. Snyder’s of Berlin offer a new 2.75 oz package (which is what I used) at the cost of $1.49. A new nice feature to these bags is on the back of them, local places in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania are shown. Some locales featured include Ohiopyle Falls, The Great Allegheny Passage Bike Trail, The Somerset Historical Center, and The Lower Humbert Bridge. They are also gluten-free. They were a hit with my family.


We also had some Farm Rich Smokehouse Pulled Pork BBQ with cole slaw which was also very reasonable.


Throw in a block of cheese and crackers and some soda and you can do a reasonable feast for around $30 for 4 people and full bellies!
