Big Game Little Work

DSC_0315lowres

I am the queen of over doing it and the master of the small details but sometimes there just isn’t enough time in the day to make football shaped cookies and cold cuts in the shape of a football stadium.

The good news is that most people wont mind, especially if you feed them well.
My favorite go to appetizers are: Hummus Flatbread Shooters and Veggie Ranch Shooters.

Hummus Flatbread Shooters

  • Servings: 20
  • Time: 30 minutes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

  • 2 oz Shot glasses  ( you can pick them up on Amazon here or your local party supply store.)
  • Your favorite hummus recipe (I used this one from Smitten Kitchen, or you could buy some from the store)
  • Flatbread
  • Olive oil
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • Paprika

Directions

Prepare Hummus ahead of time and store in a Ziplock bag.  Right before your party cut the corner off the hummus bag and pipe hummus into shot glass about half full, drizzle each cup with a small amount of olive oil, and sprinkle with a dash of paprika.   Place flat bread on parchment lined baking sheet, brush lightly with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and pepper, and place in an oven set to broil until slightly toasted.  Cut into strips about 3 inches long, I like to use a pizza cutter for this, add to the shot glass.

Veggie Ranch Shooters

  • Servings: 20
  • Time: 30 minutes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

  • 2 oz Shot glasses  ( you can pick them up on Amazon here or your local party supply store.)
  • Your favorite Ranch Dressing/Dip ( I used this one from Pioneer Women or you could use a Hidden Valley Packet and follow the instructions)
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Celery
  • Cucumbers
  • Carrots
  • Snap peas
  • Tooth picks

Directions

Prepare your Ranch dressing ahead of time.  Cut your celery, cucumbers, and carrots approximately 3 inches long and slender so that they will fit in the shot glass.  I like to do this ahead of time as well. Right before your party, pour or spoon Ranch into each shot glass, add cut veggies, snap pea, and then place two cherry tomatoes on a took-pick and add it to the shot glass.
