Healthy Throw Together Super Bowl Snacks Ideas

Thank you to my friends at Sabra for sponsoring this post!

The Super Bowl is coming up next weekend, and that means many of you may be gearing up to create epic appetizer spreads for guests watching the big game. I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of football – but I am a huge fan of football food! Finger food that’s easy to make and full of flavor is right up my alley, so I figured I’d share some of my favorite throw-together ideas and tips for football food that’s fast, healthy, and sure to impress.

The first step to creating an awesome appetizer table? Start with veggies and Sabra hummus! Filling the table with lots of colorful veggies not only makes for a beautiful display, but it also keeps your snacks on the lighter side. Give guests the opportunity to fill up on veggies so they can snack throughout the game and enjoy themselves without feeling weighed down.

Sabra hummus is the perfect accompaniment to a huge platter of colorful veggies because it comes in so many flavors to keep things interesting, it’s delicious, and there is zero prep required. Plus, it’s vegan, gluten free, and packed with plant-based protein. :)

I love using Sabra hummus as a spread for crostini, too – there are so many flavor possibilities, and the flexible no-recipe recipes are perfect for feeding crowds. They also look cute, and are great because they’re easy for guests to grab and can also be eaten with one hand if you’re holding a drink in your other hand… or, you know, a baby. ;)

To get started just slice a baguette, drizzle lightly with olive oil, and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until crispy. You can make these crispy baguette rounds a few days in advance (just store in a sealed container), and then you’re good to go for topping them with just about anything you want! Here are some of my favorite hummus crostini toppings:

Appetizer skewers are also a great easy-to-eat and easy-to-make snack for the Super Bowl! They’re delicious on their own or when dipped in hummus. A couple of my faves: caprese skewers and Greek salad skewers!

For the caprese skewers, just layer fresh basil, fresh mozzarella balls, and grape tomatoes on skewers, then drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cracked pepper.

The Greek salad skewers are just as simple: layer kalamata olives, grape tomatoes, cucumber, and feta cheese on skewers, then drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cracked pepper.

Happy football watching – or, happy hanging out while ignoring the football game on the TV and paying way more attention to the snacks. ;)

p.s. A fun fact: Sabra is the Official Dip Sponsor of the NFL. Love it! They have some coupons on their website for you to get your game day snack on. Enjoy!

    I’m so excited for Super Bowl weekend! These are some yummy ideas. Who doesn’t love hummus? I’m going to make cauliflower buffalo bites!

    I have little patience for football on tv (although, oddly, I can get into a game if I attend in person). I will watch the Superbowl here and there for commercials, though. My fave Sabra was the limited edition Smoked Paprika. Alas, though, the edition was way too limited! They ought to bring it back.

    Those hummus crostinis look so good!

  4. 6

    You know natural color of foods is crucial to me. The Greek salad looks so refreshing and healthy. Moreover, they are easy to make. Nice recipe Anne.

  5. 7

    I really like this hummus also! In the summer when Vons was having their Monopoly game, we got a coupon for a free Sabra hummus. I usually make mine, and hadn’t tried store bought hummus before, but we were pleasantly surprised.

    Definitely more interested in the food than the football!! I do like watching tennis though, and these snacks would be great for that, too!!

      I like watching tennis, too – I played in high school so it helps I know how the scoring works, etc. But it’s just more interesting and faster paced IMO! :)
