When you’re watching Sunday Night Football games the last thing you want is to get the munchies. You want to sit down and remain pleasantly satisfied throughout the entire experience.
But more than that, you want snacks that you actually made yourself and aren’t just munching out of pre-bought bags.
If that sounds like you, we have good news. In this post, we take a look at some no-brainer snacks you can make yourself that require practically no effort whatsoever but still taste great.
Once you get used to making cheesy quesadillas, it becomes incredibly easy.
You just choose a big pan, put the quesadilla in the middle, add whatever cheese and meat you want, and then cook it in a little oil before turning it over and cooking the other side.
It literally takes five minutes. And you can serve it with salsa or chutney if you like your cheese to have a tangy dip.
Poached Eggs On Tomato Toast
You don’t have to whip up a full English breakfast to enjoy yourself. You can turn it into a sandwich instead. It’s super simple. Start by toasting the bread in the toaster or frying it in the pan.
Then cook slices of tomato under the grill with some cheese on top before placing them on your toast. Lastly, finish the dish with your poached egg, and you’re done. Open the egg yolk, let it run everywhere, then dig in. It’s that simple.
Ramen Noodle Stir Fry
If you have a bag of ramen noodles kicking around in your pantry, you can use it to make a delicious meal. Start by preparing the noodles according to the instructions (this part should only take a couple of minutes).
Then chop up some vegetables and add them to a pan with garlic, soy sauce, a few slices of ginger, and any other Asian-themed ingredients you might have knocking around the house.
Then add your diced meat (or tofu if you prefer that) and stir it all together, checking regularly for seasoning. Then mix the meat and veg with the ramen noodles when cooked and you have a full meal ready to go.
Peanut Butter And Banana
If there are just a few minutes to go before the game kicks off and you need something fast, try peanut butter and banana. It’s super simple. Find a couple of ripe bananas and whack them in the freezer to cool them down.
Then grab a pot of your favorite peanut butter and a knife. Chop the banana in a bowl and dollop your PB on top. It’s that easy.
Whip Up Crispy Chicken Wings
Breading chicken wings is a long, complicated, and unbelievably messy process, particularly if you’re not used to it. But you can get a similar experience using modern equipment that does all that chicken-crisping for you.
Learning how to make frozen wings in air fryer is easy. You just enter the right settings and the machine will do the rest for you. The resulting wings are crispy and delicious, even if you start them directly from the freezer. It’s a miracle.
Black Bean Corn Salad
Snacks don’t necessarily have to be unhealthy. If you want to watch the Superbowl and then get up from your chair a few hours later feeling like a spring chicken, you can with a black bean and corn salad.
These salads are actually incredibly simple to prepare and rely on natural ingredients working together. Start with your black beans, corn, tomato, onions, lime, coriander, avocado, chili, garlic, salt, and white wine vinegar.
Chop all the vegetables into small chunks, and then mix everything together, leaving sliced lime on top.
Cheesy Broccoli-Stuffed Chicken
Cheese and chicken are delicious, but eating them with broccoli on the side can feel disappointing. It kind of ruins the experience.
Well, what about this idea: mixing the cheese and broccoli together and then stuffing it inside a rolled chicken butterfly? It’s easy to do and you can experiment with different recipes until you hit on something that you really like.
Plus, it’s something that you can prepare with just an hour to spare before the Superbowl.
Strawberries And Melted Chocolate
People are divided on whether strawberries and melted chocolate go together. But if you are the sort of person who likes the contrast of thick sweet chocolate with acidic berry tang, it could be the perfect snack for Superbowl perfection.
Just make sure that you steam the chocolate gently to melt it. Don’t heat it up in the pan or you’ll burn it.
