Before we begin, let's pause for a moment to appreciate those beloved lowbrow snacks that are practically synonymous with football: Rotel dip, cheese fries, pigs in a blanket, cheap beer. They've nourished many of us through thrilling wins and heartbreaking losses, through halftime and overtime, through wardrobe malfunctions and Beyoncé-induced blackouts.
Okay. That was a nice moment.
Forget what you thought -- march right past that supermarket display of Velveeta and cocktail sausages -- because your game day snacks are ready to do more. Swap out the powdered onion dip for garlicky bagna cauda. Keep the wings, certainly, but let them share a plate with Serrano ham croquetas. These snacks are none too virtuous and most can be eaten sans silverware, which is enough to make them football-friendly in our books. Wash it all down with beer, doctored up.
