Whether you’re an NFL fan, an NBA fanatic, a horse racing enthusiast, a tennis aficionado, or more, there’s no way you can enjoy watching your favorite games whilst just sitting quietly on your sofa – especially if the atmosphere is quite tense, and you have bet on what you think is a sure winner.
You need something to calm yourself with (i.e., food), particularly if you have placed a bet and haven’t been able to check some betting previews. But when it comes to snacks, you can’t just settle for the old-time classic potato chips or that boring old hotdog sandwich all the time. Here, then, is a list of the best snacks to munch on while watching your favorite sports games.
Proper pizza bites
Who doesn’t like pizza? This global favorite can be served with a new twist while you’re watching your favorite sports games. Instead of ordering out, you can make these pizza bites yourself, and you don’t even have to roll and toss the dough. Just get some bagels and pop them in the oven with some good old ingredients such as marinara sauce, sharp cheddar cheese, cheese curds, basil leaves, and some salt and pepper. Just a few minutes in the oven, and voila – you have your very own delicious pizza bites.
Philadelphia steak sandwich with a twist
Sandwiches are another popular favorite when it comes to sports games and sports enthusiasts. But while we all love the traditional Philly steak sandwich, that’s not to say you can’t put your own twist on it as well. To make a much more memorable (and scrumptious) steak sandwich, all you have to do is add a few key ingredients to the original recipe. These include more cheese (Gruyere works best), crispy onions, a pesto sauce, and bacon. Let your imagination run wild – you couldn’t go wrong.
Perfectly unique hot dog sandwiches
Yes, we hear you – you can’t watch a game without your beloved hot dog sandwich (or three). But there’s no law against upgrading this tired old classic, is there? The good news is that you can instantly upgrade your hot dog sandwiches simply by grilling them. but you can up the ante even more by whipping up some fantastic sauces to go with your sandwich, such as a combination of Dijon mustard, blue cheese, and herbs such as parsley and dill, or a combination of raw chopped onions, yellow mustard, sliced tomatoes, pickle relish, fried peppers, and celery salt.
Another popular and delectable combo would be sautéed spinach with olive oil and garlic, some Greek yogurt, and a dash of lemon, and yet one more sauce and topping combination you can try is a mix of slices of avocado, sliced tomatoes, mayonnaise, bacon, and canned beans. Bon appétit!
