As a Dallas Cowboys fan, when I go to football playoff parties it’s usually for the food and not to watch my team play. Hopefully this year my luck will change – I’m still holding out hope for Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and the boys in Dallas, but if their playoff hopes doesn’t pan out, well, I can always throw a tailgate party or head to one with delicious appetizers! Earlier this week lifestyle expert, Marc Silverstein joined me for an interview and he shared the secret to throwing an amazing tailgate party just in time for the NFL and NCAA playoffs with delicious appetizers. He even dished on a cost-effective portable outdoor pizza oven that you can take with you to games or set up on your back patio. How perfect is that?
Candace Rose: With football playoff season nearly upon us, what’s the key to a great tailgate?
Marc Silverstein: “Everybody’s coming hungry, right, Candace? Your friends, your family, and whether you have food off the grill or appetizers or snacks, you’ve got to be serving up three touchdowns here and that’s what I’ve got for you in my playbook.
Let’s start off with a tasty appetizer! I love Sabra hummus. That is a must have for your game day buffet. It’s easy, it’s delicious, it’s versatile. It serves great with chips and veggies and wings – serve it with wings, it’s awesome. It has more than a dozen flavors including Supremely Spicy which I love. It’s a better option for you. It is also the official dip sponsor of the NFL. You can’t come better than that.”
Candace Rose: Are there any other quick and nutritious options?
Marc Silverstein: “I’ve got a great quick and nutritious one that is awesome as well. Who doesn’t love popcorn? You love popcorn, Candace, right? It’s fun. It’s perfect for game time, you can mix it with anything. I have it out here with some peanuts and fruit and cover it with caramel, different seasonings, different spices, bacon. Everyone loves bacon on it, or you can just serve it plain. It’s also a whole grain, so it’s a healthier option. It’s low calorie, low fat and it’s pennies per serving, so it’s great on your waist and on your wallet. It’s easy to go and everybody loves it – lots of fun!
