Football Party Food Ideas: Football Twice Baked Potatoes Recipe
Are you looking for yummy football party food ideas? Watching football is a pretty big deal in our house and with football season underway, football parties are happening every weekend. Personally, I love any excuse for a party!
Mini football twice baked potatoes stuffed with gooey cheese and crispy bacon are the ultimate scrumptious game day snack to serve a hungry crowd of fans parked on the living room sofa. Pull these tasty taters out during halftime and I guarantee you will score a touchdown with your friends and family. They are a winner!
They are super easy to make! Scrub and poke a dozen russet potatoes and bake them in a 400F oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Roast a head of garlic wrapped loosely in tinfoil alongside the potatoes for about 45 minutes. While the potatoes and garlic are cooking, prepare the rest of the ingredients. Chop one package of bacon into one-inch pieces and fry until crispy. Grate the cheese, chop the green onions into thin slices and fill a decorating bag fitted a round tip with sour cream.
Allow the potatoes to cool for 15 minutes. Slice the potatoes in half, horizontally and scoop out the insides into a large bowl. Add the cheese, butter, cream, green onions, bacon and roasted garlic. Mash together until mixed and scoop back into the potato skins. At this point, you can store them in the fridge or you can heat them back up by placing them back in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Pipe stripes of sour cream across the stuffed baked potatoes to resemble mini footballs. Serve with additional chopped green onions, cheese, and sour cream if desired.
This scrumptious mini football twice-baked potatoes recipe is the perfect snack to serve on game day. This recipe makes a large amount, enough to feed a crowd of 12 to 15 people. You can easily half the recipe for a smaller amount of people. One of my favorite things about making twice-baked potatoes is that they can be made a day ahead of time so you can kick back and watch the game too!
Football shaped platters are perfect for serving up all your football party food ideas. I am in love with the football grill pan! It is perfect for serving up hot foods straight from the grill or oven to the table.
