Football Appetizers: Hoagie Dip

Are you ready for some football?

Good, cuz I’m not.

To be honest, I know nothing about football. I only watch one game a year, and sadly since Janet Jackson decided to flash a stadium full of people and several million all age viewers via cable, I can’t even say it’s for the commercials. (Come on! They have not been nearly as amusing as they used to be.)

But on that one cold day at some point in 2012, I’ll be into football. I’ll pick a team based on little knowledge of the players, who else is in the room, and the uniforms and cheer them on for a few hours filled with friends, laughter and good eats.

Oh, the eats. The football season seems to be an awesome excuse to fill the counter tops with the cheesiest dips, the heartiest chili, the stickiest wings and everything in between on a weekly basis. We wont even begin to mention the tailgating. Yeah, I may not know a darned thing about the game – but I love me some football food!

Since today is the start of the football season, I figured we could get our nosh on in honor of the sport. (Thank you to my facebook friends for the tip on the date.)


*Wont lie, there was no pretty way to scoop this dip. We made plenty of messes trying to delicately scoop – and then we just gave up and enjoyed it. 😉

    My exercise show was just moved to another channel and replaced by an NFL network-football is here! I like the idea of a big salad for dipping as an appetizer, it may be messy but it is more healthy than
    most of the standard appetizers. Great post.

    Yes I am ready for some football! And I’m ready to try that delicious looking Hoagie Dip too!

    You’re right about the Superbowl advertisements. Not so funny anymore. A big waste of money!

    You don’t want to waste your time on American football anyway. Flip your TV over to the Fox Soccer Channel to watch real football! One that’s actually played with the feet.

    Don’t worry. We can still eat these hoagies during an Arsenal game :) Buzzed!

    Oh I love love football! My hubby and I could watch for hours. I do blog, and tweet during a game of course, LOL! Your dip sounds fun and messy, Yum-O! I totally agree, the commercials for the Super Bowl are definitely not as good as they used to be:-p Hugs, Terra

    Your photos look amazing! Who cares about the daintily eating factor lol

    And I’m the same way. I basically go to football parties, etc for the food and drink. The rest of the time I’ll chat with whoever else or read a book
